Reading: Psalm 145
“Great is the Lord and most worthy of praise; his greatness no one can fathom”. God is indeed worthy of our praises. All the blessings in our life come from God alone. For this simple fact we should offer our praise to God all the time. From the larger view, we sense God’s greatness, but we cannot see the bounds of it. It is like looking out upon the ocean or up into the night sky – we can sense the immensity of it but we cannot really fathom or understand just how big or great it is. Such is the case with God.
“I will meditate on your wonderful works”. Even though we cannot fully understand, we can meditate on and wrestle with the things of God. God’s hand and Spirit are at work in so many ways all the time. It is good for our soul and good for our faith to take time often, to slow down, and to see God in our world and in our lives. When we meditate on this, we gain a better sense of what we cannot fully understand.
“The Lord is good to all; he has compassion on all he has made”. God desires to bless you and me. God desires to bless all of creation. This has been God’s intent since the beginning of the world. But we are fallen and broken. We sin. This does not diminish God’s love for us. Seeing our human state, God sent his only Son to die for us. God is compassionate. His love for us is so passionate that God gave his only Son for our sins. This is an essential truth if our faith. Consider this well today. Meditate on God’s love and compassion for us all. God is worthy of our praise.
