1 Samuel 17:1-18:4; John 8:21-30; Psalm 111:1-10; Proverbs 15:11
“Praise the Lord! I will give thanks to the Lord with my whole heart.
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.
He has caused his wondrous works to be remembered.
The Lord is gracious and merciful.
The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom;
all those who practice it have a good understanding.
His praise endures forever!”
But more magnificent than this is the creation of a new life, born of water and the spirit in whom faith now sees the face of the Creator–and believes!
The old has passed away–the new has come.
Sin no longer reigns!
A power much greater dwells in a believer’s heart and mind–
the mind of Christ.
What’s not to rejoice about!
His Divine work switches on the Light and casts out fear.
His Divine work strengthens weak knees and lifts bowed heads.
His Divine work of redeeming souls never ends!
We remember your works, O Lord, at Creation, on the Cross, in our hearts and we give you all glory and praise! Thank you Lord Jesus! Amen.
