Welcome the calendar year 2017. Though we’ve already celebrated Rosh Hashanah and the beginning of 5777, I was eager last night to view the Psalm that would be attributed to the new page of time recording.
With all the recent messages from respected global teachers, I find an expectation and announcement of the Lord showing His plans and His nature to the world.
It would seem that this Psalm too is telling us, “Watch and see, He is gracious and faithful, with enduring love. Give Him praise!”
May this Psalm be a reminder to you of His great love and faithfulness to His covenant and heart full of love for you and your family.
Lean hard into Him and His love when you cannot see what He is doing to answer your prayers.
He is faithful and we will exult in His victories planned for our days.
Psalm 117 New International Version
1 Praise the Lord, all you nations;
extol him, all you peoples.
2 For great is his love toward us,
and the faithfulness of the Lord endures forever.
Praise the Lord.
Psalm 117 Wycliffe Bible
Alleluia. All heathen men, praise ye the Lord; all peoples, praise ye him. (Alleluia. All the heathen, praise ye the Lord; all the peoples, praise ye him.)
2 For his mercy is confirmed on us; and the truth of the Lord dwelleth [into] without end. (For his love toward us is strong/For his love toward us is firm; and the faithfulness of the Lord remaineth forever.)
