Praising the Goodness of God

Handwritten page from the book of Psalms chapter 118 verse 1 through  chapter 119 verse 3
Psalms 118:1-119:3

Synopsis     Psalms 118:1-119:3 4/18/2022      

The psalmist rejoiced in reflection on God’s goodness. He encouraged the people to give thanks to God because He is good. And he explained how he was not afraid because God was with him.   

Reminiscent of King David, he described how the nations surrounded him, but with God’s power he crushed his adversaries. So, the joyful shouts of deliverance are heard in the tents of his victorious army. 

Finally, he exclaimed his anticipation of goodness. I shall not die, but live and declare God’s deeds. Blessed is the one who comes in God’s name. I give thanks to God.  

Praising the Goodness of God 

God is good. And His blessings flow from His goodness. So, the only right response to blessing is to praise God’s goodness.  

“After this I heard what sounded like the loud voice of a great multitude in heaven, saying: “Alleluia! Salvation, glory, and might belong to our God” Rev 19:1
