Tuesday, July 12th: Psalm 100, 102, 104, 105 ~ Danae

Today's passage from the Bible In a Year Reading Plan is Psalm 100, 102, 104, 105

Praise the Lord, O my soul.  O Lord my God, you are very great; you are clothed with splendour & majesty. 
Psalm 104:1

I don't spend enough time reflecting on the greatness of our God.  I love reading the kind of verses that are in Psalm 104 that really show the extent of God's majesty.

He set the earth on its foundations; it can never be moved. (Vs 5)

Not only did he create the world, but no one or nothing has the power or authority to destroy it, apart from him.

The moon marks off the seasons, & the sun knows when to go down. (Vs 19)

God controls it all; the seasons, the day & night. Nothing happens apart from his control.

The lions roar for their prey & seek their food from God. (Vs 21)

The lion is so mighty & majestic, but even he relies on God for its basic necessities. 

May my meditation be pleasing to him, as I rejoice in the Lord. (Vs 34)

The more time we take to stop & consider his majesty all around us, to marvel at his creation & stand in awe of his power & might, the more we will truly rejoice in the greatness of our God. 

Give thanks to the Lord, call on his name; make known among the nations what he has done. 
Psalm 105:1

Psalm 105 goes on to remind us to, also, take time to reflect at what he has done in our lives. The more we reflect on his work in us & his faithfulness to us, the more encouraged we are to keep living close to him.

For the Lord is good & his love endures forever; his faithfulness continues through all generations. 
Psalm 100:5

Tomorrow's Bible In a Year Passage:  Psalm 106, 107, 111-113


Nathan Reimer said...

Psalm 105:45
that they might keep his precepts
and observe his laws.
Praise the Lord.[a]

This sums up what God had in mind for the Israelites, He did all this for them that they would "keep His precepts and observe His laws"

He has done this and so much more for us, all He asks is that we also follow Him

Tammy Reimer said...

I love those verses too!

105:4 Search for the Lord and for his strength;
continually seek him.

Our faith must be active!

"How many are your works, Lord! In wisdom you made them all; the earth is full of your creatures."
Psalm 104:24

Many of the verses you all mentioned stood out to me and I thought that this verse summed it all up. All these works are from God. He thought of everything, and it is amazing how everything works; from the king of the jungle relying on God for food, to the sun and moon being controlled by Him, to us being called to meditate and praise Him for all that He has done.
