I was encouraged this morning with news of a person for whom I have prayed for years who has decided to become a follower of Jesus. I am excited to meet and hear the story of her move from sin and self to salvation. My heart overflowed with joy as I read the message. I opened the Bible and read Psalm 138 as an expression of my thanks to God.
“Thank you! Everything in me says “Thank you!” Angels listen as I sing my thanks. I kneel in worship facing your holy temple and say it again: “Thank you!” Thank you for your love, thank you for your faithfulness; Most holy is your name, most holy is your Word. The moment I called out, you stepped in; you made my life large with strength. When they hear what you have to say, God, all earth’s kings will say “Thank you.” They’ll sing of what you’ve done: “How great the glory of God!” And here’s why: God, high above, sees far below; no matter the distance, he knows everything about us. When I walk into the thick of trouble, keep me alive in the angry turmoil. With one hand strike my foes, With your other hand save me. Finish what you started in me, God. Your love is eternal—don’t quit on me now.”
Psalm 138:1-8 From The Message
Give thanks to the Lord. Great is His faithfulness and unfailing love.
