Psalm 66:1-12

O God, your assignments can be trusted to result in the deepening of our response to you, eliminating dross like the refining of silver. When we experience affliction and distress you bring us through to abundance and fulfillment.

     Split the ears with a joyful shout to God! Sing out to glorify his name and honor him with enthusiastic praise. Declare aloud, “O Triune, Supreme God, your demonstrations of power on our behalf bring us to our feet in awe. You bring all enemies to cringe before you. All creation bows in worship, singing praise to your wonderful name. (Stop for a moment and let that sink in.)

     Come! Experience for yourself the mighty works of God. His dealings with mankind are fearsome! He turned seas into dry land so his people could cross – not once but twice.

     He sees the behaviors and the hearts of all men. The rebellious exalt themselves only to the extent of his permission. He exerts sovereign control forever! (That bears meditation.)

     Countless times, without our even realizing it, Elohim saves our lives and enables us to stand strong in faithfulness. I will praise him so my voice is heard!

     O God, your assignments can be trusted to result in the deepening of our response to you, eliminating dross like the refining process of silver. When we experience affliction and distress you bring us through to abundance and fulfillment.
