Reminding Us

Psalm 22:16 -18

 16 Dogs have surrounded me;
       a band of evil men has encircled me,
       they have pierced my hands and my feet.
 17 I can count all my bones;
       people stare and gloat over me.
 18 They divide my garments among them
       and cast lots for my clothing. 

Throughout the Old Testament, there are many references to Christ and all that he goes through.  This may or not be one of them.  If not, it is a striking similarity.  I love how God reminds us again, and again of what he will do for us.  How Christ will love us enough to endure the most humiliating and horrific actions so we won't.

25 From you comes the theme of my praise in the great assembly;
       before those who fear you will I fulfill my vows.
 26 The poor will eat and be satisfied;
       they who seek the LORD will praise him—
       may your hearts live forever!
 27 All the ends of the earth
       will remember and turn to the LORD,
       and all the families of the nations
       will bow down before him,
 28 for dominion belongs to the LORD
       and he rules over the nations. 

Praise always surrounds whatever God does for us.  So today, don't forget to praise him for what he did for you.


  1. Wonderful post to remind us to give praise in all things.
    Thanks for stopping by my blog and becoming a follower. I pray my ramblings are a blessing for somebody who browses in time to time. Have a great day!
