I Will Extol You, My God
Today’s Text: Psalm 145:1-10
The 145th Psalm, written by King David, begins the climactic doxology to the book of Psalms:
I will extol You, my God, O King;
And I will bless Your name forever and ever.
Every day I will bless You,
And I will praise Your name forever and ever.
Great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised;
And His greatness is unsearchable.
One generation shall praise Your works to another,
And shall declare Your mighty acts.
I will meditate on the glorious splendor of Your majesty,
And on Your wondrous works.
Men shall speak of the might of Your awesome acts,
And I will declare Your greatness.
They shall utter the memory of Your great goodness,
And shall sing of Your righteousness.
The Lord is gracious and full of compassion,
Slow to anger and great in mercy.
The Lord is good to all,
And His tender mercies are over all His works.
All Your works shall praise You, O Lord,
And Your saints shall bless You.
David first praises the name of the Lord, the title associated with all of God’s wonderful attributes. David then praises God for His mighty acts and concludes by extolling God for His infinite goodness.
Every facet of God’s being is worthy of profound worship and praise. Reflect on God’s character and breathtaking works as you worship today. Our God is an awesome God!
