One of the weaknesses of our human nature is it is so easy to take for granted the good life that we live and if we are not careful we can just coast along and not acknowledge the goodness of God in our life. Psalm 105 is so precious in the way that it continually reminds us of the greatness of God. Verse 5 says: “Remember His marvellous works which He has done, His wonders and judgements of His mouth”. This is such good advice “Remember His marvellous work which He has done”. I had written a book about my spiritual journey which I titled “ Reflections of a man who did not know what he knew” and my son Brad asked me to do an audio recording so that he update my website.  I was amazed at the goodness of God in my life over my lifetime, there were so many that I had to pause and collect my emotions as I spoke of the miracles I had experienced in my life over those years. The chorus of a well-known hymn says “Count your blessings name them one by one and it will surprise you what the Lord has done”. Remembering God’s goodness in our lives is a very effective way to control our thoughts. Proverbs 23:7 says: “As a man thinks in his heart so is he!”. We live so freely when we are consumed by the goodness of our God. Verse 6 says: “O seed of Abraham His servant, you children of Jacob, His chosen ones!”. This truth is worthy of our meditation, to understand we are chosen by God, the power of this statement is because God has chosen us then I am forever indebted to the love of God. It is good to remember that I am not my own, I have been bought with a price and that price is the blood of Jesus. We must never forget the significance of being born again! Verse 7 says: “He is Lord God; His judgement is in all the earth”. Again the psalmist reminds us of our personal relationship with our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. This truth cannot be overstated because sometimes we are tempted to believe that I am not important to God and we become just like ordinary people. The truth is I am important to God and I have a unique purpose to fulfil so that the body of Christ grows. Also, God is in control and because of the pandemic we have experienced over the last two years when Satan has attacked the church in a significant way to make it ineffective. While this was a time of sifting, the church has come out more focused on the greatness of God and the church is becoming more effective as lives are being changed by increased awareness of the presence of God. In this new season where the world is in such a mess because of the decisions that governments have made. We must forget the events of the world did not take God by surprise. He has a plan for His church and it is encouraging to hear reports from all over the world of the Lord visiting His Church in a new and living way. This is an exciting time to be alive and see how the Lord is building His church. The Psalmist truly said, “He is the Lord our God” and as Lord, over all the earth it is time for us to experience this truth in our daily walk with Jesus.
