Bible Passage:Psalm 145:3-4
Great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised; and His greatness is unsearchable, One generation shall praise Thy works to another, and shall declare Thy mighty acts.
* * *
All the works of God are unsearchable and unspeakable: no human sense can find them out; only faith takes hold of them without human power and wisdom. No human creature can take hold or know God in His majesty, and therefore He has set Himself down in the simplest manner, and was made man, yea, was made sin, death, and weakness. But who can believe it? No man is able to imagine, much less to understand, what God has done and still does without ceasing. All that He has done, all those things which He daily creates, the ungodly, blind world does not see, nor acknowledge for God's wonders; they think all is done by chance and haphazardly. On the contrary, the good and godly, wherever they cast their eyes, see and acknowledge all as God's wonders, at which they are astonished; they see in them their delight and joy, they laud and praise the Creator, and know also that God is well pleased with their praise. The children of the world, which are in darkness, see nothing of these things, but still less do they know of the causes of faith. That three persons are only one God; that the true Son of God was made man; that in Christ are two natures, divine and human, all this offends them; they consider these things myths and fables. Truly, it is a very high and hard article, that God was made man!
Praise to the Lord, the Almighty, the King of creation.
O my soul, praise Him, for He is thy Health and Salvation!
Join the full throng;
Wake, harp and psalter and song;
Sound forth in glad adoration.
