A Good ThingNovember 2, 2010
1It is good to give thanks to the LORD, to sing praises to your name, O Most High; 2to declare your steadfast love in the morning, and your faithfulness by night, … 4For you, O LORD, have made me glad by your work;at the works of your hands I sing for joy. 5How great are your works, O LORD! Psalm 92: 1-5
As we learn to lean on God’s strength, we will want to praise Him more and more for His Marvelous Works. We also need to “give thanks to the LORD” and “sing praises to His name”. As it will help us to remember that God is in control. When things seem to overwhelm me, I will turn on my Praise and Worship music – and listen (and sing) about God’s Awesome Power and love. It does not take long and I will become peaceful – as I rest in HIS strength!!! Remember, we are leaning on the Most High God, who is in control of ALL things! There is nothing that HE can not do!!!
In this passage, we see that we should declare His steadfast love in the morning! We were recently studying about God’s grace – and how we should be “Preaching the Gospel” to ourselves every morning. We should be remembering that Christ died for our sins – He has declared us righteous! Every morning we should remember how much He loves us! It is nothing we can do – just HIM! Oh what marvelous love, that He should save us from our sins – we don’t deserve it…..
BUT – He is faithful! He will not forsake us! He LOVES us!!! In AWANA Cubbies, the 3-4 year olds learned a verse how “God is truthful”. He is truthful!!! He is faithful!!! What He says He will do – He WILL DO!!! How can we but shout for joy at God’s marvelous works!!! I can sing for joy every morning – remembering ALL that God has done for ME (and you)… We serve an AWESOME GOD!!!
