Praising God Today!
The fog has cleared!
The test, or trial, or whatever it was that seemed to spiritually suffocate me for the last 12+ months…the trek through the fog which caused me to question each of my steps and reevaluate my beliefs and practices…the doubts and fears which hindered…all these burdens have finally lifted, and I’m all the better for it.
Glory to God for all He teaches us! Praise Him for how He sustains us, and guides, us, and leads us! He is great, and greatly to be praised! He is good, just, holy, righteous and true! He and His Word can always be trusted! His mercy is unmatchable, for while we were still His enemies, Christ died for us…
…and I must show forth His praise by declaring ‘what great things He has done’!
“Like David [in Psalm 51], we should feel this to be our undeniable obligation: ‘I will teach transgressors Your ways: I am resolved. Everything in me is bound to this. I am conscious of it as a duty. I am under conviction by the Spirit of God, whom I desire to uphold me to act in this way.’ David’s declaration communicates a sense of compulsion. He has both a strong desire for the work and a settled purpose to undertake it. In David’s language, it is the work of teaching transgressors God’s ways in order that sinners might be converted to Him. In essence, it is the declaration of gospel truth to sinners in order that they might be saved.”
