Psalms On Saturday ~ Top Seven Verses in the Psalms

Avid readers of Interruptions know that I feature a Psalm on Saturday. I have now written an Interruption for 100 Psalms.

My goal is to write an Interruption for all 150 Psalms. Before I begin the “Final 50” next Saturday, I’m pausing to give you the list of my Top Seven verses in Psalms that have impacted my life.

I will go seven to one in descending order (influential to most influential). All the verses are from the NASB1995 since it’s the version that I memorize.

#7: Do not remember the sins of my youth or my transgressions; According to Your lovingkindness remember me, For Your goodness’ sake, O Lord (Psalm 25:7).

I memorized this verse soon after becoming a follower of Jesus. When I felt guilty because of the sins of my youth, this verse was gold.

#6: But his delight is in the law of the Lord, And in His law he meditates day and night.
He will be like a tree firmly planted by streams of water, Which yields its fruit in its season And its leaf does not wither; And in whatever he does, he prospers (Psalm 1:2-3).

I know, two verses, not one verse, but this passage was the reason that I started memorizing scripture as a new believer. I wanted then, and still desire today, to prosper in all that I do. 

#5: Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart Be acceptable in Your sight, O Lord, my rock and my Redeemer (Psalm 19:14).

I believed that if I could master my words and my thoughts, I could overcome anything. I still struggle with edifying words and godly thoughts, but any progress that I’ve made has been helped by this verse.

#4: For He will give His angels charge concerning you, to guard you in all your ways (Psalm 91:11).

An awesome thought that God assigns angels to guard our lives.  

This verse was my first “spiritual warfare” verse. I knew that if God assigned angels, probably the evil one (through his minions) had designed temptations, traps, and impeding thickets for me as well.  

I ask God regularly, “Please, more angels and an infilling of Your Spirit for me today.”

#3: Who satisfies your years with good things, So that your youth is renewed like the eagle (Psalm 103:5).

My favorite verse right now. God desires us to have great impact throughout our lives.

#2: O God, You are my God; I shall seek You earnestly; My soul thirsts for You, my flesh yearns for You (Psalm 63:1).

My key to growing in Christ was the realization that pursuing Him can be the most desirable pleasure in life!!!

#1: Hear, O Lord, when I cry with my voice, And be gracious to me and answer me (Psalm 27:7).

Through my #1 verse, I’ve learned that God wants me to ask and ask often for what I need — it’s been the foundational key to my relationship with my Father.

If I could only memorize one Psalm, it would be Psalm 27.  

Everything that I’ve learned in my “Top Seven” verses from the Psalms can be found in Psalm 27. Forgiveness, meditation, thinking of life, fighting evil, blessings for faithfulness, and prayer are all found in this chapter.
