Psalm 81 ~ Fully Satisfied in Yahweh

A personal confession based on the Psalms.

Fully Satisfied in Yahweh ~ from Psalm 81

I hoot and holler
To Yahweh our strength.
I shout out for joy
And bellow a victory song,
Because the God of Jacob
Is my God, too.
It is time for loud music
And celebration.

Yahweh ordains festivals,
Merriment for His people.
Because He delivers us
From every oppression,
Removes every burden
From our shoulders,
And we are free.

When I faced adversity,
I cried out to Yahweh.
He stripped away my fears,
Made me strong,
And rescued me.
He answered me with thunder
From the chambers of heaven;
He rolled over the enemy
With His lightning.

I listen for Yahweh’s voice
And confess His word.
I come into agreement with Him
And follow what He says.
He alone is God
And I will worship no one but Him,
The One who set me free.

I open my mouth wide to Yahweh,
I enlarge my expectation toward Him.
He will satisfy me with abundance
And every good thing.
I love His voice and I walk in His ways.
He subdues my enemy,
Turns His hand against my adversary.
He fills me with the best
And satisfies me with sweetness.

  1. Hi Jeff,

    I just found you because you were using my waterfall shot. I'm honored and thank you for using it. As a fellow Christian, it was nice to see it get used somewhere that glorifies God.

  2. Thank you, Eric, for sharing your photo. It's a great shot. I liked it for this post because it spoke to me of an ever flowing spring, like the abundance of God that fully satisfies us in every way.

    To the readers of this blog, Eric has a number of stunningly beautiful photos at his page at Flikr. Just click on the photo at the top of this post and it will lead you to his "photostream."
