Verse – Psalm 145:8-9, 14-21
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…
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 forever and ever.
Reflections – Psalm 145:8-9, 14-21 – God is good
When someone tells you randomly that God is good this bible text illustrates what they mean. It is wonderful to have a Father who loves you so much that He is always waiting for you to reach out to Him. Even when we do not know it, He is always giving us everything our hearts desire.
Imagine having everything you need even without knowing about it, that is the God you call your father. When you stand back to look at everything that has happened in your life you will appreciate His love. He has sheltered you from death, He has given you food, water, and air and he has restored you to health every time you have needed Him to. Learn to offer Him praises more often for His blessings on your life and He will always be there for you.
I am now a mouthpiece for God’s goodness and mercy. As long as I live I will always be praising God for His grace and blessings on my life. I will always be filled with joy and will not know sadness anymore. Every utterance from my mouth will be a thanksgiving utterance. Even when I am going through bad times I will never curse the Lord but I will look back on His love for me over the years and praise Him through my trials.
Father Lord in Heaven
Thank you for all you have done for me in the past
I know you are the reason for my life, open my eyes to see where you have brought me
I want you to know that I am forever grateful for your mercies and protection for me and my family
Let me show my gratitude every day in utterances of praise and worship
Let your divine joy never depart from my home
