Are you ready for the second half of Psalm 145 today? I’ve been looking forward to it all day and it is worth the wait. We move from generations recounting God’s works to a meditation on the character of God, with a particular emphasis on His faithfulness. He is faithful in His promises, in provision for His creation, in response to those who seek Him, and His faithfulness will endure in an eternal kingdom. God’s faithfulness has become a great comfort to me and is the attribute of His that is most dear to me (if it’s possible to have a favorite). I falter and fail in every aspect of my life, but God’s love never cools and His commitment to me never waivers. And that overwhelms me with gratefulness. We can rest in His faithfulness and know that He will lead us home in grace.
10 All your works praise you, Lord;
your faithful people extol you.
11 They tell of the glory of your kingdom
and speak of your might,
12 so that all people may know of your mighty acts
and the glorious splendor of your kingdom.
13 Your kingdom is an everlasting kingdom,
and your dominion endures through all generations.
The Lord is trustworthy in all he promises
and faithful in all he does.[c]
14 The Lord upholds all who fall
and lifts up all who are bowed down.
15 The eyes of all look to you,
and you give them their food at the proper time.
16 You open your hand
and satisfy the desires of every living thing.
17 The Lord is righteous in all his ways
and faithful in all he does.
18 The Lord is near to all who call on him,
to all who call on him in truth.
19 He fulfills the desires of those who fear him;
he hears their cry and saves them.
20 The Lord watches over all who love him,
but all the wicked he will destroy.
21 My mouth will speak in praise of the Lord.
Let every creature praise his holy name
for ever and ever.
Blessings to you,
