Psalm 145: 8-13a The LORD is gracious and compassionate, slow to anger and rich in love. The LORD is good to all; he has compassion on all he has made. All you have made will praise you, O LORD; your saints will extol you. They will tell of the glory of your kingdom and speak of your might, so that all men may know of your mighty acts and the glorious splendor of your kingdom. Your kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and your dominion endures through all generations. (NIV)
This psalm is rich in descriptions of our LORD and His wonderful character.
God is gracious. Psalm 84: describes this attribute this way “For the LORD God is sun and shield; the LORD bestows favor and honor; no good thing does he withhold from those whose walk is blameless.” Are you trying to walk in His grace?
God is compassionate. Psalm 103:13 “As a father has compassion on his children, so the LORD has compassion on those who fear him;” Who can you have compassion towards today in Jesus’ name?
God is slow to anger and rich in love. Psalm 86:15 “You, O Lord, are a compassionate and gracious God, slow to anger, abounding in love and faithfulness.” Do you abound in love towards others?
Considering the magnitude of God’s character we are to praise Him and bring Him glory. His kingdom is eternal and filled with His majesty and splendor.
What will you say or do today that will bring God glory? Who can you tell of His mighty deeds and acts done for your good?
