God’s Marvelous Works

In Psalm 105, the psalmist traces the history of Israel and writes to celebrate God’s goodness and faithfulness. He calls for the people to rejoice in what God has done, return to Him, and remember.

Adversity may seem bad at the time it happens but later we find that it prepares so we can handle the challenges of the future. The people of Israel were in Egypt for 400 years. Think about it: that’s much longer than the entire existence of the United States. Think of how God set things up for His people; plagues weakened Egypt and allowed them to escape so they could begin the journey to the Promised Land.

As we journey through life, there are times God rewards us. It may be a sunrise as we look out over a meadow of flowers or a sunset as we look over the horizon at the endless sea; like the picture below. 

We reward God by praising Him. Being thankful for His work; for His protection, His wonders, His miracles and how He provides for those that ask for His help. The New Testament is all about cheerfulness and victory; the most joyful group of books ever written. God blessed those who had faith. In the same way, we will be blessed because of our faith.

This Day with God, let us grow stronger in faith so we can finish well. Let us remember the miracles He has performed in the past and pray to be more alert so we can recognize the miracles He is performing right in front of our eyes.
