Great are the works of the Lord, studied by all who delight in them. Full of splendor and majesty is his work, and his righteousness endures forever.
God has done so much for us. Too often we don’t notice it and we simply take it for granted. The psalmist talks about the great works of the Lord and how we can praise God when we reflect on those works. It is far too easy to take for granted all that God has done for us. We can get to the place where we expect it from Him. However, when we come to the place we delight in His works and think about all that He has done, we can praise Him with such joy. The writer says that His deeds are glorious and majestic. It is simply amazing what God has done.
Many times we forget that He has worked in our lives. We have to remind ourselves that He is a God who loves us and hears our prayers and answers our prayers. If we can get into the habit of thinking about all the things that He has done, it will help us to trust Him in the times that we need Him most. It is good for our hearts for us to stop and to think about all that He has done in our lives. It is encouraging, comforting, and a blessing to think about those things. Not only has He provided salvation for us through His Son Jesus, but also He has given us all that we need to live a life for Him. He provides for us in our time of need. He protects us. He comforts us. God allows us the privilege to see Him work miracles on a regular basis. It does our hearts good to reflect on those things that He has done. It is a great way to praise God, by thinking about and delighting in all His works. When we worship God and respond to who He is and what He has done, it deepens our level of worship when we think on all His works. They are truly amazing.
