Psalm 138 Mar. 18 By David.  1I will give You thanks with my whole heart. Before the mighty ones I will sing praises to You. 2I will bow down toward Your holy temple, and give thanks to Your Name for Your grace and for Your truth; for You have exalted above all things your name and your word. 3In the day that I called, You answered me; You encouraged me with strength in my soul. 4All the kings of the land will give You thanks, Yahweh, for they have heard the words of Your mouth. 5Yes, they will sing of the ways of Yahweh; for great is Yahweh’s glory. 6For though Yahweh is high, yet He looks after the lowly; but the proud, He knows from afar. 7Though I walk in the midst of trouble, You will revive me; You will stretch forth Your hand against the wrath of my enemies. Your right hand will save me. 8Yahweh will fulfil that which concerns me; Your grace, Yahweh, endures forever. Don’t forsake the works of Your own hands.   


138:8 That which concerns me- God has a specific plan for each of us, in the same way as He has given each of us specific talents (Mt. 25:15) and has specified “good works” for us to achieve in our lives (Eph. 2:10). On His part, God will likewise fulfil what He has planned uniquely and individually for each of us- in accordance with our response to the possibilities He has potentially enabled.
