Today we will be looking at the first 6 verses of Psalm 105. These verses can also be found in 1 Chronicles 16:8-13. They are a portion of verses that are presented there from King David and were most likely sung as the ark of the covenant was brought into Jerusalem. Although this Psalm is addressed to Israel, there is so much that you and I can glean from it today. Let’s break it down into a couple of sections:
Verses 1-3: Within these verses we are reminded that as the people of God we are called to a place of:
Gratitude – we must “give thanks to the Lord” for all that He has done, is doing, and will do.
Praise – we must “sing His praises” because He is so good.
Evangelism – we must “tell everyone about his wonderful deeds” in order to spread His truth.
Worship – we must “worship the Lord” and exult His holy name all of the time.
Verses 4-6: Within these verses we are reminded that as the people of God we must seek His:
Strength – in order to make it in this fallen world we must seek the Lord’s strength each day.
Miracles – YOU are alive and breathing, that is a daily miracle, never forget all that God is doing.
Godhead – we are a part of God’s great nation through Abraham, we are children of God.
Psalm 105:1-6 NLT
1 Give thanks to the Lord and proclaim his greatness.
Let the whole world know what he has done.
2 Sing to him; yes, sing his praises.
Tell everyone about his wonderful deeds.
3 Exult in his holy name;
rejoice, you who worship the Lord.
4 Search for the Lord and for his strength;
continually seek him.
5 Remember the wonders he has performed,
his miracles, and the rulings he has given,
6 you children of his servant Abraham,
you descendants of Jacob, his chosen ones.
Prayer: Jesus, Thank You for all that You have done, are doing, and will do within my life and in the lives of those who call on Your Holy Name. Help me, and all of my brothers and sisters of faith, to speak the Good News of Your eternal love. Keep each of us filled with Your strength so that we can continue to move forward in doing Your Kingdom’s work. I pray all of this in Your Name, Jesus. Amen.
