The Lord gave me a song of worship that I finished just last night… Well, 2:34am this morning to be exact. The really cool thing is, I wrote the verses and chorus and wanted to add a bridge and had some words I wanted to use. I searched my Bible app using the words “guard your heart”, “strengthen your spirit”, and “protect my spirit”. The scripture that came up was Psalm 138. I read the chapter and low and behold the entire song was based on this scripture!! Yes, the parts I had already written! Then, I woke up today and Psalm 138 was the daily scripture on my Bible App! It was a sweet reminder to me that He is always with me an that the words of this scripture are so true!
This is a song of thanksgiving written by David. You’ll get to hear my version soon, but for now, read his words and be blessed! – Rachel
I thank you, Lord, with all my heart; in the presence of the angels to you I sing. I bow low toward your holy temple; I praise your name for your mercy and faithfulness. For you have exalted over all your name and your promise. On the day I cried out, you answered; you strengthened my spirit. All the kings of earth will praise you, Lord, when they hear the words of your mouth. They will sing of the ways of the Lord : “How great is the glory of the Lord !” The Lord is on high, but cares for the lowly and knows the proud from afar. Though I walk in the midst of dangers, you guard my life when my enemies rage. You stretch out your hand; your right hand saves me. The Lord is with me to the end. Lord, your mercy endures forever. Never forsake the work of your hands! (Psalms 138:1-8 NABRE)
