Meditations in the Psalms
What the Lord does for us is marvelous to behold! He Who is exalted above the heavens is willing to humble Himself to be with us and meet our needs – what a wonderful encouragement that is! The psalmist mentions the “poor” and “needy” and the “barren woman” – He sees them all and cares deeply for them. The Lord’s greatness involves His compassion and His deep desire to fellowship with the creatures He designed. We were made FOR HIM! We will never find complete satisfaction in life until we find our source of joy in the Lord Himself.
- The realization that no one is like the Lord – verse 5
- The result of His concern for His creation – verse 6
- The raising up of the poor and needy – verses 7-8
- The response of the Lord to the barren woman – verse 9
Never stop praising the Lord! In all the difficult trials of our lives, the Lord is watching over us and cares about what we are going through, and knows how it will be used for His glory and our good. Trust Him!
