Focus on God’s Goodness-Wonderful Deeds of the LORD

July 9th, 2024

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Focus on God’s Goodness is found in Psalm 9:1 and 2.

I will give thanks to you, LORD, with all my heart; I will tell of all your wonderful deeds. I will be glad and rejoice in you; I will sing the praises of your name, O Most High.”

This Psalm identifies specific ways that the Lord upholds the cause of righteousness.

Verse 9 says that the LORD is a refuge for the oppressed, a stronghold in times of trouble.

Verse 10 says He has never forsaken those who seek Him.

Verse 16 tells us that the LORD is known by his acts of justice. And verse 18 points out that God has a perfect memory. “God will never forget the needy; the hope of the afflicted will never perish.”

God’s acts of mercy and justice ultimately came together at the cross where Jesus died for our sins, so that we can experience forgiveness.

The wonderful deeds of the LORD reveal the goodness of God and are reasons to give thanks in the Year of Gratitude.
