I will extol You, my God, O King; And I will bless Your name forever and ever. Every day I will bless You, And I will praise Your name forever and ever. Great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised; And His greatness is unsearchable. Psalm 145 NKJV
This is a song of God’s majesty and love. David vows to bless the name of the Lord forever. Not many things last forever. God’s majesty and love will!
The definition of majesty is; regal, lofty, grandeur, an imposing character of stately dignity and supreme greatness or authority a sovereign. Those words do not adequately describe the majesty of Almighty God. His greatness is unsearchable!
David could make a vow to bless God and praise His name forever because we are eternal beings created in the image and likeness of God.
One day we will stand before God in the beauty of His holiness. Our heavenly bodies will be free of sin. We will see clearly and know just as we have been known. Our praise will describe the majesty of the Lord as perfectly as the God we worship.
The Lord is gracious and full of compassion, Slow to anger and great in mercy. The Lord is good to all, And His tender mercies are over all His works. Vs 8-9
Love is God’s greatest attribute!
Jesus created us to join Him in the loving relationship He existed in since before time began. Love is God’s greatest gift to us!
God’s love makes Him gracious and full of compassion. His loving nature is the reason He is slow to anger and great in mercy. God is good to everyone and everything. His tender mercies cover the greatest work of His hands, us!
When God created man He declared His work was good indeed. He is just as pleased with the work of His hands today!
All Your works shall praise You, O Lord, And Your saints shall bless You. They shall speak of the glory of Your kingdom, And talk of Your power, To make known to the sons of men His mighty acts, And the glorious majesty of His kingdom. Your kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, And Your dominion endures throughout all generations Vs 10-13
Jesus created us to praise and bless Him and to share the glory of His kingdom and His power. Jesus wants us to make known His mighty acts and the majesty of His kingdom. You do not have to do that exactly the way other people do!
You are uniquely gifted to serve Jesus within your circle of influence. You can do that in ways no one else can. You can encourage people in ways no one else can. You can love people in ways that are as unique and special as you are.
Make a vow within your heart to praise Jesus and bless His holy name today!
