Read Psalm 22:25-31


Read Psalm 22:25-31

      25In the full assembly I will praise you for what you have done;
      in the presence of those who worship you
      I will offer the sacrifices I promised.
      26The poor will eat as much as they want;
      those who come to the LORD will praise him.
      May they prosper for ever!

      27All nations will remember the LORD.
      From every part of the world they will turn to him;
      all races will worship him.
      28The LORD is king,
      and he rules the nations.

      29All proud people will bow down to him;l
      all mortals will bow down before him.
      30Future generations will serve him;
      they will speak of the Lord to the coming generation.
      31People not yet born will be told:
      “The Lord saved his people.”


Psalm 22:25-31 is the celebratory part of Psalm 22 which begins with the famous words: "Why have you forsaken me?"  In this Psalm the Psalmist celebrates God's answers to his prayers and if we know that Jesus prayed verse 1, we know too that on the cross he also anticipated these verses.


If you are going through a hard time can you believe in the inevitable possibility of God's victory?
If you have come through a hard time, have you honoured your commitment to give thanks and celebrate?
