‘O praise the Lord, all you nations; praise him, all you peoples.
For great is his steadfast love towards us, and the faithfulness of the Lord endures for ever. Alleluia.’ (Psalm 117)
You have just read a complete Psalm…..this is the shortest Psalm in the Bible; two verses. Yet it packs so much into it. We should praise the Lord: everyone; every nation. His love is “steadfast”; it is unwavering, reliable, constant, trustworthy. His faithfulness “endures for ever”. Not just every day of this life that we all live……but for ever. His steadfast love was there before we were born; all through this life; and will continue for us in the next stage of our life. That is why we should praise God; why we should shout out “praise the Lord”……Alleluia!!
Prayer: Gracious God, we praise you for your faithfulness and pray that every nation may find your blessing in the face of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
