Friday's Five - Psalm 100

Psalm 100

Shout with joy to the Lord, all the earth!
Worship the Lord with gladness.
Come before him, singing with joy.
Acknowledge that the Lord is God!
He made us, and we are his.
We are his people, the sheep of his pasture.
Enter his gates with thanksgiving;
go into his courts with praise.
Give thanks to him and praise his name.
For the Lord is good.
His unfailing love continues forever,
and his faithfulness continues to each generation.

This is a great Psalm.

Full of great promises that we can think and ponder.

It is a treasure of hope in the storms of life. Even though heavy clouds full of rain may obscure the sun, it is still there, shinning with all its strength. So God is always with us, in his fullness changing us from one degree of glory into another.

It is an outpouring of the oil of grace into our hearts, bringing peace, security and gladness.

The Lord is the creator – He made us, he is the architect of the universe and he intimately designed us in his image. We are wonderfully and amazingly made.

The Lord has made us his – We are God’s possession, his chosen ones, the desire of his heart.

The Lord is good – In everything he does, he is good. No evil comes from God, all his actions are gracious and he is merciful to us. He is not counting our sins against us and he does not condemn us, in all his ways he is good!

The Lords love is forever – His love is not conditional, not bound in time, it does not fade away, and it does not grow dim. God’s love is the same, yesterday, today and for every moment and second into eternity.

The Lord’s faithfulness continues – He is faithful, he will never leave us, and he will always be with us, in us, united by his spirit with us. We are in complete union with him and he is faithful to us.

God through Christ is an inexhaustible fountain of goodness, an ever flowing stream of mercy and a fathomless ocean of the grace of God.

Because of all that God has amazingly already provided for us we can revel in his love and enjoy all the privileges of being sons and heirs of the living God.

As Psalm 100 encourages us ‘give thanks to him and praise his name.’
