Our Forever God
Today's reading: Psalm 68:1-35
There is quite a bit going on in Psalm 68 which puts before us a praising of God for what He will do, what He is doing and what He has done. What I particularly liked about this psalm was all of the little pieces of information about God and His character that are woven into the psalmist’s praise. These three things are what stood out prominently to me:
That God, in His goodness, has and will provide for the needy (vs. 10);
That God is great and powerful beyond our human comprehension--"The chariots of God are twice ten thousand, thousands upon thousands..." (vs. 17); and
That God, who is our salvation, bears us up daily (vs. 19).
Thank you, God, for showing and reminding me, yet again, that You are trustworthy, You are capable and that You have every detail of my life securely in the palm of Your hand!
