Read Psalm 105
Psalm 105 encourages us as reader to give thanks and sing praise as we remember His wonders, miracles, and judgments of the past (vv. 1-5). Have you ever taken a tour of history and used it as an impetus for worship? Let’s do that now as we highlight these verses!
- Praise God, He made a covenant with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob that He has remembered and will remember forever! (vv. 8-11)
- Give thanks because He protected this wandering, fledgling nation from destruction! (vv. 12-15)
- Rejoice in the reality that God placed His man, Joseph, in a position of protection and authority during a time of famine! (vv. 16-22)
- Tell of His wonders in which He multiplied His people in Egypt, where they were hated! (vv. 23-25)
- Sing praise to Him for sending Moses and Aaron to deliver His people from bondage! (v. 26)
- Make known the miraculous signs and wonders God did through Moses and Aaron! He sent darkness, turned water into blood, multiplied frogs, sent swarms of bugs, brought hail, caused locusts and grasshoppers to consume the plants and produce, and then struck down the firstborn. (vv. 27-36)
- Praise God that He brought His people out of Egypt, miraculously guiding and providing for them! (vv. 37-41)
He did all of this because “He remembered His holy promise given to His servant Abraham.” God keeps His promises! His promise to New Testament followers of Jesus is no less significant. The writer of Hebrews applies an Old Testament promise to people like you and me. He writes, “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.” (Heb. 13:5) In the space below, why don’t you jot down some key words or events from your own life that demonstrate how He is keeping and has kept that promise? Use those thoughts as reason to praise Him!
