Psalm 33 begins with a call to praise the LORD. I thought about blogging about verse 3. Sing a new song. God is still doing great things. Don't rely on yesterday's songs and worship.
Play skillfully study, practice, give Him your best
But instead I saw something I hadn't noticed before.
The psalmist praises God because of His work in creation. But God didn't stop there! He's still at work. Look at verses 10-12.
God is at work in the nations. We see this all through scripture.
But then the psalmist brings it in closer. God is at work in the nations but also in the individuals.
He observes everyone.
He gazes on all the inhabitants.
He alone crafts their hearts.
I think it is awesome to know that the great God who created all things and decides who rules each nation also cares about me as an individual.
That aught to make your heart rejoice in Him!
We wait for the LORD;
He is our help and shield.
For our hearts rejoice in Him,
because we trust in His holy name.
May Your faithful love rest on us, LORD,
for we put our hope in You.
