Psalm 117

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.

This is a short psalm that says one thing beautifully. God is worthy of PRAISE. Verse 2 says:

For His unfailing love for us is powerful: the Lord’s faithfulness endures forever.

Some awesome words here – UNFAILING LOVE, POWERFUL, FAITHFULNESS, ENDURES, FOREVER. Aren’t they all ideas you want to have in your life more than you do?

Unfailing love is something we want from lots of people in our lives but no one is good enough at the unfailing bit. God is!

It is a powerful thing when we are loved. It gives us wings! When we feel loved it gives us confidence and helps us take risks.

God is faithful. He is trustworthy and reliable. And we can rely on that for our entire lives and forever.

These are all great reasons to praise God today. Get out your favourite worship song and put it on in the car or at home today and sing along.

Thank You Lord for Your unfailing love, the power that love brings into our lives and that You are faithful forever. Help us to remember these ideas and to turn to You in awe each day.

    You are so right Therese.
    It is the ‘love’ we want but it is the ‘unfailing’ part we actually need. – Sure foundations can only be built on the unchanging nature of that foundation.
