100:1 Make a joyful noise to the LORD, all the earth.
100:2 Worship the LORD with gladness; come into his presence with singing.
100:3 Know that the LORD is God. It is he that made us, and we are his; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.
100:4 Enter his gates with thanksgiving, and his courts with praise. Give thanks to him, bless his name.
100:5 For the LORD is good; his steadfast love endures forever, and his faithfulness to all generations.
What a beautiful Psalm that powerfully display’s Gods everlasting love for us. He cares for our every need, protects us from harm, brings us strength in times of weakness, and provides comfort when we are saddened by life’s trials. He is the one and only true God that knows us inside and out and can provide for our needs. He knows what the future holds and is always leading, shaping us and guiding us for whatever it is that we face each day.
We have so many reasons to praise God. As His children we are saved from eternal punishment and are offered a place in His family. Being God’s children should ultimately fill our hearts with true comfort, peace and happiness. Knowing that we are living under a watchful and caring God should cause us to turn and sing endless amounts of praise. More so, it should also cause us to live our lives that honor and reflect Him.
The love of our God is steadfast and is not something that will ever fade away, it lasts forever. Let us praise God for being eternally loving, all sufficient and gracious. We are God’s children, He is our heavenly father, let us praise and thank Him each day for loving and redeeming us.
For the LORD is good; his steadfast love endures forever, and his faithfulness to all generations.
Indeed God is good beyond what we deserve. God meets our needs even when we are walking astray. Even when we ignore our covenant God is faithful to His end and more. We see this is the history recorded in the Old Testament. The Israelites continually went astray and worshiped other gods yet the Lord was patient. He preserved them even when they did not deserve.
This is why we rejoice. We are given grace when we do not deserve it. We are no different than those who came before us. We will be wayward at times. Praise and rejoice in the Lord that we are met with grace and not retribution and that God will never abandon us.
