Psalm 92: “Bless the LORD, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name”

(The three part study (including video, audio and notes for each part) with Psalm 92 is available here)

This particular Psalm starts off with the words “A Psalm or Song for the sabbath day. It is a good thing to give thanks unto the LORD, and to sing”.  Throughout the rest of the Psalm, we spend a large portion of the study looking at how the rest of the verses tie into this opening verse and a corresponding verse found in Psalm 103 verse 1 which says “A Psalm of David. Bless the LORD, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name.”

Christ is our sabbath rest (Heb 4:11), and we labour to enter into this praise-filled relationship which leads to eternal life (Joh 17:3) by or through the strength of our Lord working in His body which supplies what each of us needs (Php 4:13 , Eph 4:16 , 2Ti 2:10). All that is within me is praising God, as we share in the same hope and spirit that makes this sacrifice of thanks and praise on our lips continual (1Co 12:4 , Rom 8:11 , Heb 13:15).

Heb 4:11 Let us labour therefore to enter into that rest, lest any man fall after the same example of unbelief.

Joh 17:3 And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.

Php 4:13 I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.

2Ti 2:10 Therefore I endure all things for the elect’s sakes, that they may also obtain the salvation which is in Christ Jesus with eternal glory.

1Co 12:4 Now there are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit.

Rom 8:11 But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you.

Heb 13:15 By him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of our lips giving thanks to his name.

If we are granted to see and hear the true gospel message which is currently hidden from the masses, we will come to see “in that day” that Christ is in us and He is in the Father and that we are truly inseparable from his loving hands (Joh 18:9) that are rooting and grounding us in His purpose (Joh 14:20 , Rom 8:38-39 , Eph 3:17 , Rom 8:28).

Joh 18:9 That the saying might be fulfilled, which he spake, Of them which thou gavest me have I lost none.

Joh 14:20 At that day ye shall know that I am in my Father, and ye in me, and I in you.

Rom 8:38 For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,
Rom 8:39 Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Eph 3:17 That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love,

Rom 8:28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.

That strength and holding together of His body through the love of God shed abroad in our hearts (Rom 5:5) is what fills us with hope so that we want to “Bless the LORD, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name”.

Rom 5:5 And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us.

There are so many other reasons we ought to praise God, and thank Him, and so we pray that He never lets us forget all these benefits that He’s given us which are made possible because our names our written in heaven (Luk 10:20)

Luk 10:20 Notwithstanding in this rejoice not, that the spirits are subject unto you; but rather rejoice, because your names are written in heaven.
