Attitude of Praise

The Word of God speaks to those who listen, as you reflect on the passages,
take the time to slow down and truly listen. 


Psalm 37 ESV:
  The Lord is my light and my salvation;
whom shall I fear?
  The Lord is the stronghold of my life;
 of whom shall I be afraid?
2 When evildoers assail me
    to eat up my flesh,
my adversaries and foes,
    it is they who stumble and fall.
Though an army encamp against me,
    my heart shall not fear;
though war arise against me,
    yet I will be confident.
One thing have I asked of the Lord,
    that will I seek after:
that I may dwell in the house of the Lord
    all the days of my life,
to gaze upon the beauty of the Lord
    and to inquire in his temple.
For he will hide me in his shelter
    in the day of trouble;
he will conceal me under the cover of his tent;
    he will lift me high upon a rock.
And now my head shall be lifted up
    above my enemies all around me,
and I will offer in his tent
    sacrifices with shouts of joy;
I will sing and make melody to the Lord.
Hear, O Lord, when I cry aloud;
    be gracious to me and answer me!
You have said, “Seek my face.”
My heart says to you,
    “Your face, Lord, do I seek.”
    Hide not your face from me.
Turn not your servant away in anger,
    O you who have been my help.
Cast me not off; forsake me not,
    O God of my salvation!
10 
For my father and my mother have forsaken me,
    but the Lord will take me in.
11 
Teach me your way, O Lord,
    and lead me on a level path
    because of my enemies.
12 
Give me not up to the will of my adversaries;
    for false witnesses have risen against me,
    and they breathe out violence.
13 
I believe that I shall look upon the goodness of the Lord
    in the land of the living!
14 
Wait for the Lord;
    be strong, and let your heart take courage;
    wait for the Lord!


Write down whatever thoughts this passage brought up or ignited, 
Read through the psalm a second time and pay attention to how God provides or acts
as a strong hold. 


While reading the psalm for the third time pay attention to the worship and adoration
the author bestows upon God. 
What can you learn from the attitude of the author?
