Today’s passage: Psalm 66
- David encourages Israel (And all the earth) to sing praises to God because:
- He brought Israel out of Egypt and into the Promised Land.
- He brought Israel through the times of trouble and testing and into a time of abundance.
- He heard and answered David’s prayers.
- When we sing to God, we should seek to sing of His glory, and seek to sing gloriously (Verse 2). God is worthy of our best.
- We have in this psalm an example of God allowing trials and testing, and then the right response of following up with worship. God rules by His might forever, on our good days and on our bad ones. Resolution is coming.
Questions to consider:
- What does true thanksgiving and gratitude do to our conversations with others throughout the day? How might our sincere praise of God result in opportunities to share with others?
- If you were to say, “Come and see what God has done,” what would you be most excited to share?
- David needed to remember his vows (Verse 13) after God had provided. Are there ways that God has been faithful to you and answered your prayers that perhaps you have forgotten as new challenges have come? How can remembering those times encourage you and build your faith in God’s promises?
