Psalm 111: Hallelujah

Monday, June 5, 2017

These verses remind us that the beauty surrounding us does not occur through coincidence.

I give thanks to God with everything I’ve got – wherever good people gather, and in the congregation. God’s works are so great, worth a lifetime of study – endless enjoyment! Splendor and beauty mark God’s craft; God’s generosity never gives out. God’s miracles are God’s memorial – this God of Grace, this God of Love.

These words remind us that God’s miracles are gifts from a loving creator.

God gave food to those who love the LORD, God remembered to keep God’s ancient promise. God proved to the people that God could do what God said. God manufactures truth and justice; all God’s products are guaranteed to last – never out-of-date, never obsolete, rust-proof. All that God makes and does is honest and true.

These verses remind us that God’s authority and works are authentic and sustaining, and last forever.

God is so personal and holy, worthy of our respect.

These verses remind us that God’s love is intimate and transforming, bringing with it the healing of our woes, the blessings for a lifetime.

The good life begins in the love of God – do that and you’ll know the blessing of God. God’s Hallelujah lasts forever!

These words remind us that we might join in with God’s great Hallelujah.

The ten Hallelujah Psalms are numbers 106, 111-113, 135, and 146-150. When we spend time with these songs and compare differing translations, we find renewal in the Spirit of Pentecost.
