I read in Psalm 145 three life-changing statements.
“The Lord is righteous in all his ways and faithful in all he does.
The Lord is near to all who call on him, to all who call on him in truth.
He fulfills the desires of those who fear him; he hears their cry and saves them.”
I had meant to read on, to finish the psalm and move on to other passages, but I couldn’t. I begin to wonder if everything I need to know about God is all right here:
He’s perfect and faithful in everything! He’s near to us when we call on Him! He fulfills our desires! He hears our cries and saves!
If we’re doubting what’s happening around us, we stand firm upon God’s righteousness and faithfulness to us.
If God feels far from us, we proclaim the truth that He is near.
If we’re struggling with unfulfilled desires, we know we can trust God to satisfy. We know He hears the cry of our hearts and saves us.
What great truths to meditate upon every hour of every day of our lives!
