One generation will praise your works to the next one,
proclaiming your mighty acts.
They will talk all about the glorious splendor of
I will contemplate your wondrous works.
They will speak of the power of your awesome deeds;
I will declare your great accomplishments.
They will rave in celebration of your abundant goodness;
they will shout joyfully about your righteousness:
“The Lord is merciful and
very patient, and full of faithful love.
The Lord is good to everyone and
God’s compassion extends, to all his handiwork!”
Food For Thought:
This psalm is full of praise to God. It is filled with“WOW!” Entire generations will be filled with awe at God’s mighty acts. They will marvel at God’s splendor and majesty, thinking about all the good things God has done. They will tell the stories of the awesome things God has revealed and done. They will celebrate God’s goodness and righteousness. They will share stories of God’s compassion, patience and faithful love. We are the current generation called to do all these things! We are the people David spoke of who would one day thank God for all God’s goodness and would share it with the world through words and actions. We have a great God to thank and to celebrate!

I stand in awe of you, and I am deeply grateful that you never stop revealing your love and goodness to us. Help me and help my generation to shout joyfully about your compassion and love. Make me bold for you. Amen.
