“The Master Plan”

Blessed is every one that feareth the Lord; that walketh in his ways. Psalm 128:1

Psalm 128 is one of fifteen psalms known as, “a Song of degrees” and historically they were supposed to have been sung by the pilgrims as they went up to attend the feasts in Jerusalem. These psalms follow a repetitive theme beginning with trouble, Ps 120, followed by trust, Ps 121, then triumph in Ps 122 and so on. Psalm 128 interestingly is a psalm of triumph. As we read its six short verses, the words begin to reveal the wonderful state that the Lord had in mind when He first created man “in our image and after our likeness.” Genesis 1:26. The victory which the Lord wants everyone who reads Psalm 128 to experience is to see the original master-plan that the Creator had for us, His creation. Let us consider these verses:
  1. The Promise. Bible commentator Vance Havner once observed that there were approximately 8,810 promises in the entire Bible. In the Old Testament there are 7,706 and 1,104 wonderful promises in the New Testament. Deuteronomy chapter 28 contains 133 promises, which is more than any other chapter in the Bible. This prompted him to say, “We’re sitting on the premises when we ought to be standing on the promises!” The words of the old chorus says, Every promise in the Book is mine, Every chapter, every verse, every line, All the blessings of His love divine, Every promise in the Book is mine. Psalm 128:1 declares a universal blessing on “everyone that feareth the Lord; that walketh in his ways.” Read Full Article
