Imagine what it would be like to have a ten-cylinder engine for the family car! The biggest ones around are eight cylinders…and not too many of those; the most common are cars with four cylinders.
Well, today your day can be powered by a “ten-cylinder” engine! What I mean are the ten verses of today’s psalm that can have you move through your day with the power of God. We often call this power, “grace.” With God’s grace, you can block negative forces that might be coming against you—the meanness of others, the nasty, critical words that someone might say to you.
There’s one word in this Psalm that can counter the bad effects of any other words. It’s “Alleluia,” which means, “Praise the Lord.” Like poking a hole in a big balloon, “Alleluia” bursts the bad away.
Wednesdays are devoted to the reading of the Psalms,
one a week across the three-year cycle.
