This week in SOAP

Psalm 111:2
Great are the works of the Lord,

studied by all who delight in them.


This week I was particularly challenged and intrigued by this verse.  Apparently one who delights in the Lord, is one who studies the history of His great works.  What a thought.  As people who delight in the Lord, we are to be historians.  Recalling, to the praise of His name, His great deeds and works.

The Bible talks a great deal about remembering forever the works of the Lord.  It’s a challenge to me.  It means that we first must learn them, and then recall them with praise.  Another potential application here relates to our own personal history.  There really is something to be said for writing down the miracles of God in our life, and going back to that list time and again.  It creates worship in us.  And that is, after all, what we have been created to do.
