Day #5 – Declaring His Marvelous Deeds

Friday, May 31st, 2013

Psalm 71:14-18

As for me, I will always have hope;

I will praise you more and more.

My mouth will tell of your righteous deeds,

of your saving acts all day long-though I know not how to relate them all.

I will come and proclaim your mighty acts, Sovereign Lord;

I will proclaim your righteous deeds, yours alone.

Since my youth, God, you have taught me,

and to this day I declare your marvelous deeds.

Even when I am old and gray, do not forsake me, my God,

till I declare your power to the next generation,

your mighty acts to all who are to come.

Reflection

The prayer of the Psalmist in these verses captures the yearning for God’s power to continue to be shown to the next generation.  May our hearts and prayers also resonate this deep yearning for God’s mission to continue, as we declare God’s mighty works.

Responding to the Word

As we continue to live out our calling, may God empower us by His grace to proclaim His righteous deeds and bear witness to His marvelous saving acts.  May we always have hope; may we always praise God more and more.  Meditate on and pray through this psalm, asking God to enlarge your heart to care even for entire generations of people.  Let’s also pray for our churches in this way, that we would catch on to this heart’s cry for God’s power and mighty acts to be proclaimed.
