Psalm 89:1-26 I will sing of the steadfast love of the LORD, forever; with my mouth I will make known your faithfulness to all generations...

think about it.
What is the focus of the psalmist's praise (89:1-2)? What other reasons does he have for praise (89:5-14)? What brings blessing to you (89:15-18)? What are you praising God for today?
Ethan the Ezrahite is the writer of Psalm 89 where we're reading both today and tomorrow. Ethan lets us know right up front his heart and message. "I will sing of the steadfast love of the Lord, forever; with my mouth I will make known your faithfulness to all generations" (vs. 1). And then, he goes on and he does exactly what he proclaims in verse 1. Now it's a given that our actions show Christ to those around us, but our words are also important. So l love how Ethan the Ezrahite specifically tells us that he will use his mouth to tell others about God and His faithfulness.
So how are you using your mouth to tell others about God's faithfulness? What opportunities do you have to speak to others at work, with your family, with friends, at the grocery store or wherever your day takes you? Tami W.
