I will praise You, O Lord , among the peoples, And I will sing praises to You among the nations. For Your mercy is great above the heavens, And Your truth reaches to the clouds. Be exalted, O God, above the heavens, And Your glory above all the earth;
This journey through Psalms on studying who God is has been life changing for me.
In the beginning of this journey I had to make a decision whether to only share something once or repeat the things I had found in my study through Psalms. I almost immediately felt the leading of the Holy Spirit on this matter. I thought about how many times in our day-to-day life are we faced with our own human limitations, a culture that is trying to eliminate God, and/ or lies and deception from the enemy of our soul about the character of our great God. So the decision I made is many. I will repeat and declare the character of our God as many times as He led the writers of Psalms to write about Him. Everyday we are faced with darkness, evil, lies and deception.. So I want to share with over and over again the truth about who God is. If God says, He is good, 27 times in Psalms I want to declare to you 27 times about the goodness of our God.
