    Verse 15 shows that Jehovah God gave wine for our enjoyment. Wine goes beyond what is strictly necessary to maintain life and it adds to our joy.

    This is a most interesting psalm where all the qualities of the Almighty God is defined for you to appreciate. It goes further to let you understand the extra gifts of bread,wine and oil that gives strength and gladdens the heart of man. It is a psalm of life's needs met on your daily living. if I have my way, I will recite this psalm everyday.

    V. 1 - " ......."O Lord my God ......."; As I read this just now - it brought to mind Thomas, "My Lord and my God." Thomas was a Jew and would NEVER called Jesus "my Lord AND my God" if he hadn't believed Jesus was - God the creator of everything - Deut. 6:4.
