Wednesday’s Word

O give thanks unto the Lord; call upon his name: make known his deeds among the people (Psalm 105:1).
Throughout this psalm, the history of Israel is recalled: from Abraham through the conquering of the Promised Land. In this psalm, the children of Israel are exhorted to remember the promises of God and His faithfulness in fulfilling all His promises.

At the close of the book bearing his name, Joshua, reminded the children of Israel that God had not failed in one good thing He had promised them.Some almost 3,500 years have passed, since God gave Canaan to Israel and the faithfulness of God continues without fail. We also, modern Israel (the church) should remember the faithfulness of God. God not only made a land promise to Abraham, but He also promised that through the seed of Abraham, all the families of the earth would be blessed.

The promise was not fulfilled in Isaac, Jacob, Judah or David but in Jesus Christ.By the blood of Jesus Christ, all men can be citizens of the Kingdom of Heaven; by the blood of Jesus Christ, all men can be members of the family of God; by the blood of Jesus Christ, all men can be heirs of the promise made from God to Abraham.

Yes, we should give thanks unto the Lord, because He has made it possible for us to “call upon his name” (Acts 22:16).┬áThe psalmist reminds us that we should thank God and we should also tell others. We tell others of the grace and mercy of God, because of the grace and mercy we have received from God. We tell other of the grace and mercy of God, because they too can enjoy His grace and mercy.We serve a wonderful God, let’s tell others of Him.
