Sunday Scripture - Psalm 145:1-3


Sunday Scripture is just simply a thought or two on a Bible verse that may have struck me afresh or maybe for the first time or has always been special to me.






In the Prayer Meeting at church last Thursday evening I was thinking on one of my favourite verses which is


     Psalm 34 verse 1   
         I will bless the Lord at all times, His praise shall continually be in my mouth.


Now this is often a verse I think about during a prayer time but the next day I opened some notes I had forgotten I had written down about a year ago and there straight away I saw my few lines about Psalm 145 and it so described how I felt our prayer meeting had been even more than Psalm 34 did.


In Psalm 145 v 1-2  the Psalmist says:





This seems to be more intense than Psalm 34 and this is how I am sure our church members felt as we prayed together from the tone and content of their prayers.

We were exalting and extolling God, we were blessing Him and we were praising His name and we want to do that for ever.  It is good to be in such unity wanting to completely praise the name of the Lord together.

This was our ADORATION to the Lord our God.


But why would we want to give our adoration to God?


Well taking these two verses on their own is not enough, we should always look in the context around the verse and when we look at the next verse you can see the very reason we had felt as we did.



In Psalm 145 v 3  the Psalmist gives us the reason why we act as described in verses 1&2:




So why do we extol, bless & praise Him?



Because God is Great and no-one or no-thing can ever outdo Him or overshadow Him in Greatness.



How Great is Our God?


And

The Greatness of God is limitless, no end to it can be found.
