Joy and thanksgiving was one of the central planks of Old Testament worship, especially as expressed in song! It is so today, as the New Testament makes abundantly clear. Find one lesson from this Psalm for our congregation.
“Remember his covenant forever, the word that he commanded, for a thousand generations,” v15
How wonderful are these words for us to read!
God has made a covenant with us, grafted into the vine (Romans 11:17-24). This is cause for joy!
“Oh give thanks for the LORD; call upon his name; make known his deeds among the peoples!”
These are words for us today, alive in God’s covenant – A wonderful encouragement in our walk, to give thanks, to call upon Him, to make known His deeds all powerful to all the peoples!
And more, to remember His wondrous works, to tell of His salvation day by day, declare His glory among the nations.
Really it’s just an awesome passage. Read it. Dwell on the words. And praise God for His word, alive to us today!
