DEVOTIONAL QUESTIONS:

1) Do you feel that your praise and worship of the Lord is old and worn-out? Do you need some new life breathed into your worship? Maybe you need some new

spiritual victories to celebrate so that you can rejoice with new songs of joy!

2) Note the connection between our relationship to God as our Creator and as our King – How does this impact His ability to give us the Victory?

3) Note how the Lord takes pleasure in blessing His children and is equally faithful in executing vengeance on the rebellious. Why do the wicked think they can afflict God’s people with impunity?

4) How is God’s execution of vengeance “an honor for all His godly ones”?
