Majesty

RE Verse reading–Psalm 40 (day four) Have you stopped recently to consider who God is and what He has done?  40:5 says, “Many, O Lord my God, are the wonders which you have done,” The Psalmist was acknowledging the mighty works of God.  Verse 5 says, “…If I would declare and speak of them, they would be too numerous to count.” When we recognize how complete and extensive God is, what should be our response?  Look at verse 9…we are to proclaim the works of His hands.  The Psalmist says his words cannot be restrained…he has to speak of His faithfulness and loving kindness.  Verse 16 also shows us a response…it is worship.  “The Lord be magnified!” Back to the original question, have you reflected on the majesty of God lately?  What was the result of your experience?  Hopefully, it is declaration and worship!  God sustains us in our need and we must be faithful to exalt His name…even when the world presses in upon us.
