The psalmist praises God in Psalm 135 because of what He has done in the past and will continue to do for the future. He provides grace, power, and victory against enemies like He did against Pharaoh and other kings throughout history.

We need God in our present situation because He has the power to keep us on the path to victory. Let’s put our attention on Him and receive spiritual treasures worth more than silver and gold.

An idol can’t listen to your concerns but our Heavenly Father does. Spend a few minutes in silence, putting away the cares and concerns and noise of the day, listening for the Holy Spirit. Be thankful for God’s goodness and greatness. Invite Him to come along with you as you spend your day.

This day with God, give praise to His goodness and how He treats us as His child. He cares for us and wants what’s best for us. He is a loving God, a caring God, and a faithful God. Praise Him for the marvels of His creation like the expanse of the universe, the beauty of nature, or the amazing accomplishments of His people.

About Mark Shields

Mark volunteers as a member of the media ministry team at his church. A few years ago, he started an on-line Bible study guide called “This Day with God Devotional”. He uses this as a tool in his journey through the Bible. We live in a very busy world with busy schedules so this tool has helped him continue with daily Bible reading and study. Each of the studies are designed to help apply our faith in the work place, at school, or at home. Join him on this journey or check in every so often to read his thoughts.
