For the Lord your God is God of gods and Lord of lords, the great God, mighty and awesome, who shows no partiality and accepts no bribes. He defends the cause of the fatherless and the widow, and loves the foreigner residing among you, giving them food and clothing. And you are to love those who are foreigners, for you yourselves were foreigners in Egypt. Fear the Lord your God and serve him. Hold fast to him and take your oaths in his name. He is the one you praise; he is your God, who performed for you those great and awesome wonders you saw with your own eyes. Your ancestors who went down into Egypt were seventy in all, and now the Lord your God has made you as numerous as the stars in the sky. Deuteronomy 10:17-22
Ever wanted to shout out in song for the great things God has done?
Trusting in the Lord is like walking on a road whose horizon you can’t see; “Your word is a lamp for my feet, a light on my path”. (Psalm 119:105)
He shows us enough so we can keep walking without stumbling; he hides the rest lest we get too overwhelmed on how we would get there. He sees the end and the beginning and tenderly leads us.
As we see his ways unfold before us we can’t help but shout out praise to Him. Our trust increases; the joy we experience is containable. We explode in songs of praise; songs we song before and songs birth by the Spirit of God within our own soul.
“He is the one you praise; he is your God, who performed for you those great and awesome wonders you saw with your own eyes”.
The word “praise” here is the Hebrew word “Tehillah” which means to sing, to laud; it’s the singing of “Halal” another Hebrew word meaning to praise, boast or celebrate!
What has He brought you through? Better yet, what is He bringing you through? Can only see a few steps; keep walking! He is trust-worthy and will see us through!
It’s time to break out in song (tehillah); spontaneous songs of praise and celebration unto our God!
Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, I will sing to Him a new song!!!
God bless you!~Liz
