Psalm 105: 1-6, 37-45
Give thanks to the Lord, call on his name; make known among the nations what he has done. Sing to him, sing praise to him; tell of all his wonderful acts. Glory in his holy name; let the hearts of those who seek the Lord rejoice. Look to the Lord and his strength; seek his face always.
Remember the wonders he has done, his miracles, and the judgements he pronounced, O descendants of Abraham his servant, O sons of Jacob, his chosen ones.
He brought out Israel, laden with silver and gold, and from among their tribes, no one faltered. Egypt was glad when they left, because dread of Israel had fallen on them. He spread out a cloud as a covering, and a fire to give light at night. They asked, and he brought them quail and satisfied them with the bread of heaven. He opened the rock, and water gushed out; like a river it flowed in the desert.
For he remembered his holy promise given to his servant Abraham. He brought out his people with rejoicing, his chosen ones with shouts of joy; he gave them the lands of the nations, and they fell heir to what others has toiled for–that they might keep his precepts and observe his laws.
Praise the Lord.
While reading about the faithfulness of God to Israel, my thought is to focus on the faithfulness of God for all the generations of my family. God’s love, grace and mercy has always been evident to me through my grandparents and my parents; and now is evident in my four siblings and with the saving grace shown to me. We have all become heir to what was made possible through the life, death and resurrection of Jesus the Christ. We rejoice with thanksgiving in song with praise. Praise the Lord!
Father thank you with shouts and songs of praise. Lord, we seek your face for our strength, our joy, our provision, our healing and salvation. We desire to focus on your word filled with your promise of your Holy Spirit to lead us that we might keep your precepts and obey your will. We desire to give your message of hope to the next generation by making known what you have done for each of us. We ask in Jesus’ name, amen.
