Meditations in the Psalms
In spite of Israel’s sin, rebellion, slavery, and defeat, the Lord delivered them when they cried out for His help. What a wonderful God we have! He loves us, and His grace is greater than our sin. Because He remembers His covenant, and because He is a God of great mercy, there is hope for us all. Our God will save us when we confess and repent. Proverbs 28:13 says we will find compassion when we get right with the Lord.
- The cry that He hears – verse 44
- The covenant He remembers – verse 45
- The concern which others had for them – verse 46
- The call for God’s salvation and praise – verse 47
- The commitment to praise the Lord – verse 48
The way this psalm ends is so beautiful – “Blessed be the LORD God of Israel from everlasting to everlasting; and let all the people say, Amen. Praise ye the LORD.” What more needs to be said? Let’s just praise the Lord!
