I will give thanks to the Lord with all my heart in the company of the assembly. His great works are studied and remembered by all who delight in them. He gives food to those who fear Him because the Lord remembers His covenant. He has made known the power of His works by giving territory to His people (Ps. 111:1-6). Study God's great works for provision and territory to fulfill His covenant.
God's works are truth and justice. His precepts are faithful forever. He has sent redemption to His people because His name is holy and awesome. The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom. Those who do His commandments have a good understanding (Ps. 111:7-10). Do His commandments with wisdom as response to God's redemption.
How blessed is the man who fears the Lord and greatly delights in His commandments. His descendants will be mighty on earth. Wealth and riches are in his house, while his righteousness, grace and compassion endure forever (Ps. 112:1-6). Fear the Lord and delight in His commandments to produce descendants, wealth and riches.
He won't fear evil tidings, but trust in the Lord. He gives freely to the poor and will be exalted in honor. The wicked will be angry and melt away (Ps. 112:7-10). Trust in God allows generous giving to the poor.
Praise the Lord's name every moment of every day because His glory is above the heavens and all nations (Ps. 113:1-4). Praise God continually because of His glory.
The Lord is enthroned on high. He raises the poor from the dust and lifts the needy from the ash heap to sit with princes. He makes the barren woman be a joyful mother of children (Ps. 113:5-9). God transforms peoples' stations in life.
When Israel left Egypt, Judah became God's sanctuary and Israel, His dominion. The sea fled and Jordan turned back. The mountains skipped like rams (Ps. 114:1-6). God lives through His people.
Tremble, O earth, before the Lord who turned the rock into a pool of water and the flint into a fountain of water (Ps. 114:7-8). God gets peoples' attention through miracles of provision.

1. Study His great works in sending His awesome redemption
2. Delight in His commandments in bringing mighty descendants
3. Praise His exalted honor and highest glory to transform people
