December 20, 2022 - Psalm 9

David declared, “I will give thanks to the Lord with my whole heart; I will recount all of your wonderful deeds. I will be glad and exult in you; I will sing praise to your name, O Most High” (9:1-2). Charles Spurgeon notes, “It sometimes needs all our determination to face the foe and bless the Lord in the teeth of his enemies; vowing that whoever else may be silent we will bless his name.” So many are silent, either out of ungratefulness or because of unbelief. I am reminded of Joshua’s words to Israel: “And if it is evil in your eyes to serve the Lord, choose this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your fathers served in the region beyond the River, or the gods of the Amorites in whose land you dwell. But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord” (Joshua 24:15).

Different situations. Different commitments: Joshua will serve the Lord; David will give thanks to the Lord. But in both instances, a decision is called for and a commitment must be made. Sometimes life comes at us hard, but through it all, God remains faithful and good. And, so, I will give thanks to the Lord. I will recall his faithfulness to me in times past. I will be glad and exult in him. I will sing praise to his name. What’s that little verse we sing?

God is so good,

God is so good,

God is so good,

He’s so good to me. --Paul Makai (Evangelical Church of Zambia, 1970)
