"Great is the Lord and most worthy of praise; His greatness no one can fathom. One generation will commend Your works to another; they will tell of Your mighty acts. They will speak of the glorious splendor of Your majesty, and I will meditate on Your wonderful works." - Psalm 145:3-5
"How we love You, Father in heaven. How we praise You for all Your mighty works." We sing the words, but how often do we truly think of God's mighty works on our behalf? Do our friends and family know what God has done for us? When was the last time we declared His mighty works?
Psalm 106 describes how the Israelites repeatedly forgot about God's many kindnesses to them in the desert. When they stopped remembering God's greatness, they started relying on themselves. They rebelled against God. Life became all about their rules and plans and happiness - with devastating results.
We can learn from the Israelites. Declaring God's mighty works and praising Him every day will help keep our lives on track and inspire hope in the people who hear us. Join in the chorus of praise to our Lord God Almighty who reigns forevermore!
When people see what God can do in an ordinary life, they just might open the window wider to God's possibilities for them. Maybe they will even see ways that God is already at work in their lives. Then they, too, can praise Him and declare His mighty works for all to hear!
Reflection: Reflect on the past 24 hours with a thankful heart. Don't neglect the small things God has done. Sometimes it's the little things that show us how carefully we're loved.
