Singing God’s Praises
January 25, 2012 § Leave a comment
With Psalm 111 we are singing God’s praises! The Giver of all goodness. The Redeemer of our lives. We are children of His abundance… daughters and sons of privilege. His deeds are glorious and majestic (111:3). He is gracious and compassionate (111:4). He provides every day (111:5). And we are grateful. He is the Giver who overrides our fears, concerns, and confusions. His abundance takes us beyond our sense of scarcity. Because He is faithful and trustworthy (111:8). Therefore, “the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, all who follow his precepts have good understanding” (111:10). We know our gratitude can never match His generosity. But at least we can give thanks to help us focus on Him rather than all the other gods that are competing for our attendance. Indeed, “to him belongs eternal praise” (111:10).
