Psalm 145 is a psalm of praise and worship by David. Every time I read a psalm I am touched by something. Today I focus on “One generation commends your works to another,” and then, “They speak of the glorious splendor of your majesty– and I will meditate on your wonderful works.” These lines today turn my thoughts, not just to His mighty acts of forgiveness, mercy, and love, but to the grandeur and majesty of nature. I think of how it continually sings out His glory and praise from generation to generation. The splendor of the mountains, the power of the ocean, the beauty of the mist, the delicacy of a flower, all have the power to extol His Name forever. They remain ever there in worship serving as a reminder to us to pay attention to all that is Him…
I will exalt you, my God the King;
I will praise your name for ever and ever.
Every day I will praise you
and extol your name for ever and ever.
Great is the Lord and most worthy of praise;
his greatness no one can fathom.
One generation commends your works to another;
they tell of your mighty acts.
They speak of the glorious splendor of your majesty—
and I will meditate on your wonderful works.
They tell of the power of your awesome works—
and I will proclaim your great deeds.
They celebrate your abundant goodness
and joyfully singof your righteousness.
The Lord is gracious and compassionate,
slow to anger and rich in love. Psalm 145:1-8
