Old Testament: Psa 116.12–14
To read the Bible in a year, read Psalms 116–118 on August 20, In the year of our Lord 2020
By Don Ruhl
Do you think on the endless blessings God pours into your life? In answering that question, do not only think of material blessings, but also think of what He gives in the spirit. One of the psalmists thought on God’s blessings, and asked himself a question, and then answered it,
What shall I render to the LORD
For all His benefits toward me?
I will take up the cup of salvation,
And call upon the name of the LORD.
I will pay my vows to the LORD
Now in the presence of all His people.
– Psalm 116.12–14
The psalmist looked at the Lord’s benefits and asked what he should render back to the Lord for those benefits.
The psalmist stated that he would do two things: First, he would take the cup of salvation and call upon the Lord. Second, he would pay his vows.
- Has the Lord benefited you?
- If so, what shall you render to Him for those benefits?
