God's Goodness - June 25, 2009

I love the book of Psalms. I am reading my way through the Bible and am sitting on Psalms. Almost every chapter has something good to say about God. Psalms 111 is very uplifting. The Psalmist praises God for his goodness. Here is the whole chapter.

Praise the LORD!
I will give thanks to the LORD with all my heart,
In the company of the upright and in the assembly.
Great are the works of the LORD;
They are studied by all who delight in them.
Splendid and majestic is His work,
And His righteousness endures forever.
He has made His wonders to be remembered;
The LORD is gracious and compassionate.
He has given food to those who fear Him;
He will remember His covenant forever.
He has made known to His people the power of His works,
In giving them the heritage of the nations.
The works of His hands are truth and justice;
All His precepts are sure.
They are upheld forever and ever;
They are performed in truth and uprightness.
He has sent redemption to His people;
He has ordained His covenant forever;
Holy and awesome is His name.
The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom;
A good understanding have all those who do His commandments;
His praise endures forever.

What do you have to praise God’s goodness for in your life? Make a list and pick three to focus on. Your day may get better.
