;

Declare His Wonders

Description

Why is it so important to remember what God has done in the past? The answer can be found in Psalm 105:1-5.

Pray: 

Lord God, I turn to You. I want to know You better. Help me to see You and understand Your heart.

Read: 

Psalm 105:1-45

Reflect: 

What are some of the events this psalm points to?

If Psalm 104 is a creation psalm, directing us to look for evidence of God's nature in creation, so Psalm 105 is a covenant psalm (6-11), directing our gaze to God's actions through history (in particular the history of his chosen people, Israel).

God reveals the kind of God he is through the way he rescues and protects his people (5,14,15,27-37) and by the way he guides and provides for them (17,26,37,39-41,44).

Why is it so important to remember what God has done in times past? The answer lies in verses 1 to 5. When we look back and see what God has done--in rescuing us, guiding us and providing for us--we will give God the praise he rightly deserves. Is praise for God woven into our daily lives? If not, have we perhaps lost sight of the wonders he has done (5)?

Just as the people of Israel were to be a light to the other nations (1), declaring publicly what God had done for them, so we too are called to share the wonders of what God has done in Jesus.

Apply: 

Tell people the good things that God has done. Tell those who know him and those who need to.

Pray: 

You have been faithful to Your people throughout history and You are faithful to me. I love You.
