Declaring the Mighty Deeds
“One generation shall commend your works to another, and shall declare your mighty acts. On the glorious splendor of your majesty, and on your wondrous works, I will meditate. They shall speak of the might of your awesome deeds, and I will declare your greatness. They shall pour forth the fame of your abundant goodness and shall sing aloud of your righteousness. The LORD is gracious and merciful, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love. The LORD is good to all, and his mercy is over all that he has made.” – Psalm 145: 4-9
One of the important instructions given is to tell each new generation the wonders and glory of the LORD. There are many instances within the Holy Bible where the Father is able to complete acts that are marvelous to understand. These works are to show us that the LORD is in control of history and time. Why is it important to recount the wonders that the LORD has done?
By reviewing and recounting, we are able to understand that there is something greater than ourselves. Mankind’s ego is not the end all and be all of life. We are instructed that there is something far greater than what we can do. This ego is there and it allows us to harness but also debilitates our understanding. I have had this many times in my life. I am not the most humble individual at times, but I try to control it.
The amazing wonders of GOD show us that were are to take note that there is much that needs to be learned about ourselves. While there is a day appointed for judgment, until then the LORD has decided to be gracious and merciful. He does not want us to falter and fall. He wants us to make sure that we have the opportunity to get right. This is the mercy and grace and the goodness that exists. We are to take this opportunity to allow the mercy, grace, and goodness to show us the way we should walk. We are all part of the creation and this mercy applies to all of us.
