The Lord is trustworthy in all he promises and faithful in all he does (Psalm 145:13b).
The psalmist invites us to join with him as he praises the Lord God. The psalms are wonderful in helping us to pray. They show we can bring our hopes, our fears, our complaints and our praise to him. Try it now. Say the words of these verses in Psalm 145 as your prayer to God. Hopefully, you will find as I do that your heart cries out in praise, along with the psalmist.
How great is our God! The evil one wants us to forget this. He wants us to focus on our problems and worries. But our God is trustworthy! Our God is faithful! Our God is compassionate!
We have seen throughout this week that our God – Father, Son and Holy Spirit – is worthy of our praise. We have seen his compassion, his faithfulness, his trustworthiness. He is a God who keeps his promises. He is a God who not only helps us when we turn to him but also helps us to turn to him in the first place.
All glory to the Father, Son and Holy Spirt – one God, now and forever!
Holy God, worthy are you to be praised. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! I realise that I am only aware of a small portion of the blessings you give me every day. May your Holy Spirit make me more aware of who you are, and may he enable me to praise you more and more. Amen.
