Topic: Behold His Greatness And Glory [Saturday March 25, 2017]
Text: Psalm 113:1-9
Key Verse: “The LORD is high above all nations, and his glory above the heavens” (Psalm 113:4).
A songwriter beheld the glory and the greatness of the Most High and rightly described Him in this manner: “The Ancient of Days, Pavillion’d in Splendour, And girded with praise.” The psalmist in our text today commands all the servants of the Lord to praise Him.
True servants of God are those who appreciate His ownership over their lives through creation and redemption. Praise is a necessary and most excellent duty we have towards God. He is the supreme Ruler over the earth and heaven. No matter how powerful a kingdom on earth may be, it must have its boundary. But God’s Kingdom is boundless and universal. David through the Spirit of God searched for whom he could compare God with but found none.
Great men he had known could not be forever but God lives forever whose beginning and end no mortal can know. He is the Omniscient, Omnipresent, Omnipotent and infallible God. His humility is extolled and His power to change all unfavourable conditions to favourable ones is mentioned here. Many people like Joseph, Jabez, David and Jeremiah were raised up from their low estates to the state of renown. Sarah became the mother of great nations and a one-time barren Hannah who prayed for a male child received several more male and female children.
Think about His majesty today; appreciate and give Him the due praises. He will prove Himself to you as a God who can do all things and eternally you will behold His Majesty. If you have not yet cultivated the habit of loud and uproarious praises to the Most High, begin to do so today.
Thought for the day: As God is matchless in all things, He deserves praises in all things.
