Recounting His Faithfulness

Rod Shimabukuro

Scripture
Psalm 68:35 Awesome is God from his sanctuary; the God of Israel—he is the one who gives power and strength to his people. Blessed be God!
Observation
The hymn of Psalm 68 recognizes God’s protection, love and guidance for His people. David concludes his song exclaiming God’s power and strength. Remembering and recounting the faithfulness and God through trials, battles, persecutions, wilderness wanderings, brings David to the concluding thought recognizing God’s divine leadership.
Application
My heart is provoked to recognize God’s providence in the midst of some hardships. My thoughts turn towards remembering the work of God’s love through Jesus’ life actions. These actions over 2000 years ago are made alive daily in my heart and lift through the Holy Spirit. His presence of love, commitment, sacrifice, strength, wisdom, peace and all He exemplified and gave...is made alive in my heart today. I’m reminded that God is with me, will never leave me and always lead me - for His pleasure!
For who He is, I respond with like hearted, Davidic passion of praise. My God is awesome who gives power and strength to Rod...Blessed be my God!
Prayer
Blessed be my God! Thank You for being my God, overseeing and involving Your presence in my heart and life. I trust You Father, Jesus and Holy Spirit!
