Psalm 105

God keeps His promises.

Psalm 105 is a call to praise God for His faithfulness in keeping His covenant promises. The psalm recounts the story of God’s covenant faithfulness to the patriarchs, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Joseph, Moses, and to God’s chosen people as He brought them out of Egyptian slavery to the land He promised.

We know the rest of the story. We know how God remained faithful to His people through exile and return, how He sent prophets to His people to call them to repentance and hope, and how He fulfilled His promise in sending His one and only Son to redeem all people on the cross.

Psalm 105 doesn’t just give us the story of God’s faithfulness. It also gives us a way to respond to Him.

Give thanks to the LORD, call on his name;
proclaim his deeds among the peoples.
Sing to him, sing praise to him;
tell about all his wondrous works!
Honor his holy name;
let the hearts of those who seek the LORD rejoice.
Seek the LORD and his strength;
seek his face always.
Remember the wondrous works he has done,
his wonders, and the judgments he has pronounced. (v. 1-5 CSB)

All this happened
so that they might keep his statutes
and obey his instructions.
Hallelujah! (v. 45 CSB)

Give thanks to Him.
Call on His name.
Proclaim Him to all nations.
Honor His name.
Seek His face.
Remember what He has done.
Obey His instructions.

God keeps His promises.
Let 2018 be a year of remembering and responding to God’s faithfulness.

Father, You are LORD, Yahweh, keeper of covenant promises. Thank You for Your faithfulness. I want to remember all You have done and obey all You have instructed. I want to seek Your face, call on Your name, and tell all people what You have done. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
