The Book of Psalms is the hymn book of the New and Old Testament, that is full of amazing songs of prayers and supplications. I especially love reading them in the Old King James version the best. I have to tell you that just reading from this book helps get me thru from day to day. It can help most people in overcoming depression and fight against evil.
So this month “October” the Feast Of Tabernacles is being celebrated by Israel and the entire Jewish community. So I’d like to designate and set aside this month as a celebration of my faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.
The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The Lord is the strength of my life of whom shall I be afraid? When the wicked, even mine enemies and my foes, come upon me to eat up my flesh, they stumbled and fell. Though an host should encamp against me, my heart shall not fear: though war should rise against me, in this shall I be confident.
Psalm 27:1-3 KJV
Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. But his delight is in the law of the Lord; and in his law doth he meditate day and night. And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.
Psalm 1:1-3 KJV
The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his names sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me: thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
Psalm 23: 1-5 KJV
The earth is the Lord’s and the fullness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein.
Psalm 24: 1 KJV
Because thy loving kindness is better than life, my lips shall praise thee.
Psalms 63: 3 KJV
In thee, O Lord, do I put my trust; let me never be ashamed; deliver me in thy righteousness.

Great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised in the city of our God, in the mountain of his holiness. Psalm 48: 1 KJV
Make a joyful noise unto the Lord, all ye lands. Serve the Lord with gladness: come before his presence with singing. Know ye that he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture. Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him and bless his name. For the Lord is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations.
Psalm 100: 1-5 KJV
As the hart panteth after the water brooks, so panteth my soul after thee, O God. My soul thirsteth for God, for the living God: when shall I come and appear before God?

Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits: who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all they diseases; who redeemeth thy life from destruction; who crowneth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies;
Psalm 103:1-4 KJV
My soul shall make her boast in the Lord: the humble shall hear thereof, and be glad. O Magnify the Lord with me, and let us exalt his name together. I sought the Lord, and he heard me, and delivered me from all my fears. ……this poor man cried, and the Lord heard him, and saved him out of all his troubles.
Psalm 34: 2-6 KJV
1. He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. 2. I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust. 3. Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence. 4. He shall cover thee with his feathers, and 5. Thous shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day; 6. nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday. 7. A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee. 8. Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked. 9. Because thou hast made the Lord, which is my refuge, even the most High, thy habitation; 10. There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling. 11. For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways. 12. They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone. 13. Thou shalt tread upon the lion and adder. The young lion and the dragon shalt thou trample under feet. 14. Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known my name. 15. He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him. 16. With long life will I satisfy him, and shew him salvation.
Psalm 91: 1-16 KJV
I will bless the Lord at all times: His praise shall continually be in my mouth. My soul shall make her boast in the Lord: the humble shall hear thereof, and be glad. O magnify the Lord with me, and let us exalt his name together.

“I will Bless the Lord At All Times” Choirs singing

I thank God for having a mother who was a blessing, for she loved to impart a love for the scriptures on to me and guided me into my current love of reading the Psalm’s.
The Book of Psalm’s is one of the most comforting, remarkable books of the Bible, it’s the place you can go for a quick lift, and for restoration and comfort to your soul. The Psalm’s lead you to get to the heart of God.
This book ushers you right into the middle of devotion and meditation with God.
Sometimes all that’s required is that you think on the goodness of Jesus and all he has done for you! My wonderful and great God, how majestic and amazing God is.
For He is the love of my life, he is my life….the very center of my life, my peace and my joy.
and so meditating on him, can bring you to a state of peace. It’s so important to praise God no matter what we are going thru. Scripture says:
But thou art holy, O thou that inhabitest the praises of Israel. Psalm 22:3 KJV
For it is God that inhabits the praise of Israel!
