Let God Be Magnified

Hello my lovely readers,

Last night I was reading Psalms, and I came across this verse, which I thought was really neat. Psalms 70:4 Let all those that seek thee rejoice and be glad in thee: and let such as love thy salvation say continually, Let God be magnified. But as I kept reading on and on, another verse stood out to me that was even neater than 70:4. Psalms 72:18 declares, Blessed be the Lord God, the God of Israel, who only doeth wondrous things. I kept thinking about that one part- "...who only doeth wondrous things." This morning I looked up the word wondrous in a dictionary, and found this meaning: exciting wonder: so good or admirable as to inspire wonder or awe.

Then I started thinking about many things that God did in the Old Testament and in the New, and found out that His doings are really wondrous. Here are a few examples of things that God did that are wondrous.
He:
  • Created the world-Gen. 1:1-25
  • Created man-Gen. 1:27
  • Sent a flood which covered the whole earth-Gen.6:17
  • Confounded the people of Babel's language-Gen. 11:7
  • Made a covenant with Abraham-Gen. 12:2-3
  • Spared Lot from the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah-Gen. 19:16
  • Used Joseph to save a nation of people- Gen. 45:5-8
  • Parted the Red Sea for the children of Israel when they were leaving Egypt - Gen. 14:14-16
  • Used judges to deliver his people from oppression-Judges
  • Gave up his only Son, Jesus, to die on the cross so all men could be forgiven and saved. -Ephesians 1:7 "In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace;"
I could go on and on as I look through Scripture and find many accounts that testify God working wonders, but I think you get the point. I'm glad the Lord only does wondrous things, and not just mediocre things, aren't you? 

I guess that concludes my thoughts on Psalms 72:18. 

        Hope you have a sweet day walking with the Lord.
                         Your friend,

  1. Thanks Ashley for the encouragement. God truly is wondrous. I'm going to be thinking on what you wrote about Psalm 72 for probably the rest of the evening... I hope. Thanks again for setting my mind on things above. -Keith Marcinkus
