Meditations in the Psalms
This psalm explodes upon us with praise to our God! It exalts Him and His kingdom, and reminds us of His attributes and mighty deeds. This opening section of the psalm which focuses on the greatness of the Lord, reveals the real secret to David being a “man after God’s own heart.” He concentrated on the worship and praise of Almighty God. He saw the greatness of God and as a result, he saw himself and the need of humility and dependency upon the Lord. If we are too busy to worship the Lord, we are too busy!
