Psalm 147 – Powerful Personal God


Where are you at with God? Is he a fable to you?  Is he too far away and too remote to understand how to connect or interact with him?  Is he a future consideration when your time comes to move into the next world? He desires to be our personal loving God…

1 Praise the Lord.

How good it is to sing praises to our God,
how pleasant and fitting to praise him!

3 He heals the brokenhearted
and binds up their wounds.
4 He determines the number of the stars
and calls them each by name.
5 Great is our Lord and mighty in power;
his understanding has no limit.
6 The Lord sustains the humble
but casts the wicked to the ground.

7 Sing to the Lord with grateful praise;
make music to our God on the harp.

10 His pleasure is not in the strength of the horse,
nor his delight in the legs of the warrior;
11 the Lord delights in those who fear him,
who put their hope in his unfailing love.
Psalm 147:1, 3-7, 10-11

I love that Psalm 147 connects the naming of the stars in the sky with the sustenance of the humble.  This is the picture of God in heaven.  The creator of the universe who is all-powerful and responsible for stars and planets and the beauty and intricacies of the world cares about you and me.

In fact, God cares more about those who trust and follow him than he cares about inanimate objects, however majestic.  The strength of a horse and the power of a warrior has value in the eyes of the world.  The world marvels at the beauty and complexity of the universe.

God delights in those who have an awesome respect and reverence for him and hope in his unfailing love.

So where are you at with God?

Is he a fable to you?  Is he too far away and too remote to understand how to connect or interact with him?  Is he a future consideration when your time comes to move into the next world?

God presents himself as the author of unfailing love.  He desires for us to hope in him. He is personal and close and caring.  He desires to set the feet of the humble on solid ground.

Consider God anew today.

Amen.

Marc Kinna
