The text this week is Ezekiel 29:1-21 in which Ezekiel begins to describe God’s judgment on Egypt. In doing so he describes Egypt as a ‘staff of reed’ to Israel, a support Israel should never have counted on. In contrast, God alone is faithful, and that will be our worship theme.
Whom Shall I Fear?
Psalm 100:1-5 Make a joyful noise to the LORD, all the earth! 2 Serve the LORD with gladness! Come into his presence with singing! 3 Know that the LORD, he is God! It is he who made us, and we are his; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture. 4 Enter his gates with thanksgiving, and his courts with praise! Give thanks to him; bless his name! 5 For the LORD is good; his steadfast love endures forever, and his faithfulness to all generations.
Psalm 57:9-11 I will give thanks to you, O Lord, among the peoples; I will sing praises to you among the nations. 10 For your steadfast love is great to the heavens, your faithfulness to the clouds. 11 Be exalted, O God, above the heavens! Let your glory be over all the earth!
Psalm 118:1 Oh give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; for his steadfast love endures forever!
O God Our Help in Ages Past – This is Hannah Gronseth’s tune, which I keep meaning to do a video for.
Psalm 59:16-17 But I will sing of your strength; I will sing aloud of your steadfast love in the morning. For you have been to me a fortress and a refuge in the day of my distress. 17 O my Strength, I will sing praises to you, for you, O God, are my fortress, the God who shows me steadfast love.
