Believing the Promises of God - in His Word

Against all hope, Abraham in hope believed… Without weakening in his faith… Yet he did not waver through unbelief regarding the promise of God, but was strengthened in his faith and gave glory to God, being fully persuaded that God had power to do what He had promised. ~ Romans 4 [selected 18-21]

Psalm 145 - Extol Him

I meditated on this entire Psalm this afternoon and it speaks so much the desires of my own heart toward the LORD our God. I want to speak of Him from generation to generation – to my children and their children – to show WHO HE IS – and what HE can do! He is the AWESOME and ALMIGHTY GOD – the GREAT I AM!
  • Psalm 145

A psalm of praise. Of David.

1 I will exalt You, my God the King;
I will praise Your Name for ever and ever.
2 Every day I will praise You

and extol Your name for ever and ever.
3 Great is the LORD and most worthy of praise;

His greatness no one can fathom.
4 One generation will commend your works to another;

they will tell of your mighty acts.
5 They will speak of the glorious splendor of Your majesty,

and I will meditate on Your wonderful works.
6 They will tell of the power of Your awesome works,

and I will proclaim Your great deeds.
7 They will celebrate Your abundant goodness

and joyfully sing of Your righteousness.
8 The LORD is gracious and compassionate,

slow to anger and rich in love.
9 The LORD is good to all;

He has compassion on all He has made.
10 All you have made will praise You, O LORD;

Your saints will extol You.
11 They will tell of the glory of your kingdom
and speak of Your might,
12 so that all men may know of Your mighty acts

and the glorious splendor of Your kingdom.
13 Your kingdom is an everlasting kingdom,

and Your dominion endures through all generations.
The LORD is faithful to all His promises
and loving toward all He has made.
14 The LORD upholds all those who fall

and lifts up all who are bowed down.
15 The eyes of all look to You,

and You give them their food at the proper time.
16 You open Your hand and satisfy

the desires of every living thing.
17 The LORD is righteous in all His ways

and loving toward all He has made.
18 The LORD is near to all who call on Him,

to all who call on Him in truth.
19 He fulfills the desires of those who fear Him;

He hears their cry and saves them.
20 The LORD watches over all who love Him,

but all the wicked He will destroy.
21 My mouth will speak in praise of the LORD.

Let every creature praise His Holy Name
for ever and ever. [emphasis mine]

May we Praise and EXTOL His Name together - forever!

Choosing JOY,
