Read Psalm 105:1-11 and 45b

Give thanks to the Lord, proclaim his greatness;
tell the nations what he has done.
2     Sing praise to the Lord;
tell of the wonderful things he has done.
3     Be glad that we belong to him; let all who worship him rejoice.
4     Go to the Lord for help;
and worship him continually.
5–6  You descendants of Abraham, his servant;
you descendants of Jacob, the man he chose:
remember the miracles that God performed
and the judgements that he gave.
7     The Lord is our God;
his commands are for all the world.
8     He will keep his covenant for ever, his promises for a thousand generations.
9     He will keep the agreement he made with Abraham
and his promise to Isaac.
10   The Lord made a covenant with Jacob,
one that will last for ever.
11   “I will give you the land of Canaan,” he said.
“It will be your own possession.”
Praise the Lord!

Think

This Psalm is quoted in 1 Chronicles 16 - sung when the Ark was returned to the tent during the time of King David.  It is a worship Psalm that celebrates all that God's faithfulness to his people.

Verse 11 is good advice, in the NRSV: "Seek the LORD and his strength, seek his presence continually."

Pray

Lord, remind me of all you've done; help me to live in your presence continually.
