Read | Psalm 117

Praise the Lord, all you nations;

    extol him, all you peoples.

For great is his love toward us,

    and the faithfulness of the Lord endures forever.

Praise the Lord.

Respond | Tom Dearduff

This short psalm tells us to praise God for two reasons: 1) God’s love is great for us; and 2) God’s faithfulness endures forever. On these two truths should we spend time reflecting. 


Love. God does not simply love us enough. This is a love that never fails. This is a love unconditional. This is a love beyond measure—beyond even comprehension. God’s love is a grandeur even the whole earth could not contain. 


Faithfulness. God is faithful even when we are most unfaithful. And the faithfulness onto which we hold overflows from the indwelling of the Holy Spirit. This faithfulness is true and enduring, for God will “never leave you nor forsake you” (Deuteronomy 31v6).


Praise the Lord.
