On the glorious splendor of your majesty,
and on your wondrous works, I will meditate. (Psalm 145:5 ESV)
David marveled at the hand of God at work during his life and saw that his kingship was subordinate to God’s kingship. David was given such a view of the glory of God that he was forever transformed, and yet, David too needed to commit himself to meditate on God’s wondrous works to more fully appreciate it as well as remember it.
If David needed to meditate, how much more do we? And yet, we have so much more wondrous works to meditate upon as Jesus has come and his death and resurrection have won victory over Satan’s power and even over death itself! Let us not fail to see the “glorious splendor” of His majesty because we don’t regularly take time to meditate upon it.
Will you commit yourself to regular meditation of the Word of the Lord?
Thank the Lord for revealing Himself as He has in the Scriptures and in the person of His Son.
