Psalm 145: The Greatness, the Love, and the Faithfulness of God!
July 20, 2022
TODAY'S BIBLE READING:
What kind of legacy would you like to leave behind you? David here tells how “one generation commends your works to another” (145:4). There is an inevitable overflow of commendation about God to those who are coming behind you when you know God. What is is that David commends about God?
First, that God is great. “Great is the Lord and most worthy of praise; his greatness no one can fathom” (145:3). David will “proclaim your great deeds.” There is no one greater than God! Would you speak of the greatness of God and trust him so that the greatness of God is part of your legacy to future generations?
Second, that God is loving. “The Lord is good to all; he has compassion on all he has made” (145:9). “You open your hand and satisfy the desires of every living thing” (145:16). There is none more loving than God! Would you speak of the love of God and trust him so that the love and goodness of God is part of your legacy to future generations?
Third, that God is trustable. “The Lord is righteous in all his ways and faithful in all he does” (145:17). “He fulfills the desires of those who fear him; he hears their cry and saves them” (145:19).
You can trust God! He is faithful! Would you speak of God’s faithfulness so that future generations can learn to trust him too? Aim to make this your legacy: the greatness, the love and the faithfulness of God!
