For you make me glad by your deeds, O LORD; I sing for joy at the works of your hands.
Thoughts on Today’s Verse…
Gaze into the heavens on a dark night and see the wonders of the starry hosts. Think of the incredible diversity of earth’s wonders. Look at your own life and see the fingerprints of God’s work in your own experience (Rom. 8:28). As Jesus said, our Father is working still (John 5:17). Yes, it does make us glad to know that we are not alone in working our own life (Psalm 139; Phil. 2:13). There is a deep-seated joy at knowing that the LORD, Creator of the universe is at work in us and for us. No wonder singing praise is such a natural response for us!
Dear Heavenly Father, I praise you for power and glory revealed in the majesty of your creation. I thank you for your work in transforming and recreating me, as well. Please continue your transforming work in me. Make me what you want me to be. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
