Psalm 81 is one of 150 psalms in the Bible and is a call for us to remember God’s faithfulness. In it, we are reminded to hear God’s voice and heed His instructions. By exploring its verses, we can gain insight into how to listen and obey God’s will. Let’s take a closer look at what this chapter teaches us about being faithful followers of God.
Verse 1 tells us that God “standeth in the congregation of the mighty; he judgeth among the gods.” This verse serves as both a reminder that God is powerful and ultimately sovereign over all creation including the forces of the universe, but also serves as a warning against those who would dare challenge His authority or try to usurp His power. Throughout history, there have been many who thought they were strong enough or wise enough to challenge Him, but all have failed in their attempt as He always prevails over them.
The next few verses (2-5) recount some of the wonders that He has performed throughout history, from delivering Israel from their enemies in Egypt to providing abundant sustenance in the wilderness after their escape from slavery. These stories serve as reminders that even when we find ourselves in difficult circumstances, our faithfulness and obedience will be rewarded with blessings from God if we just trust Him and accept His will for our lives.
The last two verses (6-7) remind us to take comfort in knowing that God is always present and with us no matter what hardships we are facing. We should not be afraid or discouraged because He is with us every step of the way no matter what comes our way – good times or bad times – He is always faithful and present when called upon. We should also know that through our faithfulness and obedience we can expect blessings from Him as well!
In conclusion, Psalm 81 reminds us to stay strong in our faith and trust that God will provide for us even during difficult times if we remain obedient to His will for our lives. It encourages us not to fear any situation because He is always present with us no matter what happens; good times or bad times alike! Lastly, it reminds us that by being faithful followers of Him, we can expect blessings from Him too! As such, let’s remember these lessons whenever life gets tough so that we may keep our faith strong despite whatever comes our way!
