Around the Word in 365 Days, by Linda Sommer

God Is Great!

Psalm 145:1-21 I remember as a child praying this blessing before every meal: "God is great! God is good! Let us thank Him for our food! Amen." This psalm expresses the greatness of God. David says, "Every day will I bless You, and I will praise Your name forever and ever. Great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised; and His greatness is unsearchable" (vv. 2-3).

It would take our whole lifetime to search out God's greatness, but at the end we would realize we had not even begun our search. His greatness is truly unsearchable.

Today I am thanking Him for the great life He has given me with my husband as we celebrate our wedding anniversary together. Today we celebrate also the birth of Jesus in our marriage and in the marriages of all of our three sons. Jesus lives in each of their hearts, and Christmas is celebrated every day of their lives. Christ lives within us, and He is our hope of glory. He is the light of the world that does not go out when the Christmas lights are turned off. He is and was and ever more will be the great I Am, Emmanuel—God with us—the Great Potentate of all time, the King of glory who touches our lives with His glory and causes our light to shine before others.

Every day can be Christmas day if we will bless the Lord and praise His name. Joy will flood our souls, and no man will ever be able to steal this joy. Today I not only celebrate my marriage to my husband, and the joy it brings, but I also celebrate my marriage to Jesus Christ who gives me joy now and forever more, even into eternity. Great is the Lord and greatly to be praised.

Lord, I give thanks and praise to You today. Don't let a day go by that I do not praise Your holy name. Thank You for the generations after me in my own family who will praise Your name and declare Your mighty works to others. You are truly good. You are gracious, full of compassion, slow to anger and of great mercy, and You are good to all. Your tender mercies today are over me and all my loved ones. Thank You for Your everlasting greatness.
