Day Five: “My Mouth will Speak in Praise of the Lord”

Friday, June 12th, 2015

Psalm 145:8-21

The Lord is gracious and compassionate,
slow to anger and rich in love.

The Lord is good to all;
he has compassion on all he has made.

All your works praise you, Lord;
your faithful people extol you.

They tell of the glory of your kingdom
and speak of your might,
so that all people may know of your mighty acts
and the glorious splendor of your kingdom.

Your kingdom is an everlasting kingdom,
and your dominion endures through all generations.

The Lord is trustworthy in all he promises
and faithful in all he does.

The Lord upholds all who fall
and lifts up all who are bowed down.

The eyes of all look to you,
and you give them their food at the proper time.

You open your hand
and satisfy the desires of every living thing.

The Lord is righteous in all his ways
and faithful in all he does.

The Lord is near to all who call on him,
to all who call on him in truth.

He fulfills the desires of those who fear him;
he hears their cry and saves them.

The Lord watches over all who love him,
but all the wicked he will destroy.

My mouth will speak in praise of the Lord.
Let every creature praise his holy name
for ever and ever.

The psalmist had experienced both that God is king over all and that He is full of compassion, and his response is to proclaim the goodness of the Lord.  V. 14-16 remind us of 1 Peter 5:5-7 and how the Lord lifts up those who are bowed down and His hand is full of caring provision.

As those who have also experienced this lordship and care, let’s proclaim with this psalm the rule, compassion, and worthiness of our God in worship and prayer.  Let’s also pray for our upcoming weekend events, especially our Sunday worship celebrations.  May our mouths together - as His church/churches - speak in praise of the Lord.  Let every creature, including all who join us on Sunday, praise His holy name.
