Psalm 105:1-5 (TPT) God’s Wonderful Works
Go ahead and give God thanks
for all the glorious things he has done!
Go ahead and worship him!
Tell everyone about his wonders!
Let’s sing his praises! Sing, and put all of his miracles to music!
Shine and make your joyful boast in him, you lovers of God.
Let’s be happy and keep rejoicing no matter what.
Seek more of his strength! Seek more of him!
Let’s always be seeking the light of his face.
Don’t you ever forget his miracles and marvels.
Hold to your heart every judgment he has decreed.
We have many choices to make each day that will in some way affect our lives. We need to make the choice to remain joyful while praising God no matter what is going on in the world. I am convinced the more time I spend with God and doing things that feed a positive spirit in me, the better I handle the reality of the world. I am fully aware and understand my need for God’s strength and power operating in my life. We must put a guard over our souls, by staying focused on the things that are eternal. The Apostle Paul teaches us how to practice biblical thought control: “So keep your thoughts continually fixed on all that is authentic and real, honorable and admirable, beautiful and respectful, pure and holy, merciful and kind. And fasten your thoughts on every glorious work of God, praising him always” (Phil 4:8). If we carefully choose what will occupy our thoughts each day, we can be happy and rejoice no matter what!
Prayer: Lord, thank you for being the strength and helper I need each day to remain focused on eternal realities. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
