“Give thanks to the Lord, call on His name; make known among the nations what he has done.”
This Psalm is the first five books of the Old Testament in a nutshell. It is a song to remind the people of Israel all that God has done for them. At first, other than a Bible lesson, the Psalm seems to be locked in time, only for use for the Hebrew people. At first.
Then I began to wonder why I am not singing of the glorious things my Lord has done for me.
We have hymns and praise music to proclaim our Savior’s sacrifice, resurrection and look to His coming again. But I am talking about my own story.
The many times He has rescued me from despair. Reassured me in the middle of one of life’s storms. Healed me, or someone I prayed over. Blessed me beyond measure in comparison to the way many in the world live. Spoke to me through His Word or a friend’s. Forgave me for turning back to my old selfish nature. Loved me in spite of my weaknesses. Gave me strength.
Held me in His arms.
Father in Heaven, You are glorious. You are love, patience, mercy and grace. You are ever present, ever caring, ever molding me into who I was destined to be. Forgive me for not proclaiming You as Lord of my Life more often. Show me today how I can witness your Love to my world and make You known to the nations who do not know You, even if those nations are only as close as my neighbors. Give me the zeal of David to spread the news of Your wondrous works and remind others of your Love. I ask this through Your Son so You may be glorified. Amen.
