It’s I Will Wednesday!
For You Lord, have made me glad through your work; I will triumph in the works of Your hands. Psalm 92:4 NKJV
In these strange times that we are living in, it is easy to focus on all of the negative things that surround us. From the threat of sickness to the instability of our communities, we can find ourselves living in fear-induced bondage that seems to slowly take away our hope and joy.
In Psalm 92, we find the Psalmist not looking at the things that are around him but focusing his attention and praise only on God and what He has done. He is consumed in his praise and thanksgiving to and for God and even says he will triumph or celebrate in the works (deeds) of His hands. As we continue reading Psalm 92, we see the Psalmist mention about various enemies who desire wickedness and are opposing him. But through it all, he triumphs or celebrates in the deeds of God.
How uplifting this is for the Children of God! Just like the psalmist, we can celebrate as we serve a God who is great and mighty and has done marvelous things. Each day we can wake up excited about what the Lord has done for us and go through the day with expectations of what He is going to do next. There is an old saying that speaks of how we can not praise God enough for what He has done:
“He has done so much for me I can not tell it all. If I had ten thousand tongues It won’t still be enough”
No matter what we are going through, and no matter what or who opposes us, our God is greater! We cannot praise Him enough for all of His deeds. We cannot praise Him enough for His mighty acts. But what we can do is stand in awe of all that He has done. We can lift our voices in praise for His goodness, mercy, and lovingkindness. Praise is lifting, worship is refreshing. When we focus on the Lord’s goodness, our hearts are lifted above our circumstances. So like the psalmist, instead of focusing on the negative, focus on the greatness of our God and all that He has done.
“I WILL triumph in the works of Your hands”
