“Glory (boast) in his holy name; let the hearts of those who seek the LORD rejoice!”
Psalm 105 is a sweet encouragement to my faith today. Even as the psalmist instructs me to give thanks and tell of the wonderful works of the LORD, I rejoice that I have much more than my own record of God’s grace and faithfulness to boast about and stand on in easy and difficult times (though it is sufficient in itself to rejoice in). The Gospel record contains a wealth of God’s faithfulness and provision throughout redemptive history. From the Garden of Eden with Adam & Eve as He provided for their need before and after they sinned to Abraham and Moses and the nation Israel and on into the New Testament with the advent of Jesus Christ into this world and the culmination of grace displayed in the Cross as Jesus Christ took the wrath of God in our place and then the birth of the church and God’s provision of grace in continuing His glorious work of redemption until today.
We have today…we have this moment…as long as we have breath, we have the opportunity to boast in His holy name!
1Oh give thanks to the Lord; call upon his name;
make known his deeds among the peoples!
2 Sing to him, sing praises to him;
tell of all his wondrous works!
3 Glory in his holy name;
let the hearts of those who seek the Lord rejoice!
4 Seek the Lord and his strength;
seek his presence continually!
5 Remember the wondrous works that he has done,
his miracles, and the judgments he uttered,
6 O offspring of Abraham, his servant,
children of Jacob, his chosen ones!
Go ahead and boast…glory in His holy name.
