In Psalm 145:8-10, we hear:
The Lord is gracious and merciful,
slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love.
The Lord is good to all,
and his mercy is over all that he has made.
All your works shall give thanks to you, O Lord,
and all your saints shall bless you!
There are two layers of praise here. One layer comes from all things and people, everything and everyone God created. We all praise and thank God for being good and merciful to all of us.
The second layer comes from “his saints.” That doesn’t just mean people with “St.” in front of their names. Instead, “his saints” are all who follow God. They are those who have responded to God’s “mercy over all that he has made”—expressed perfectly in Jesus’ death and resurrection—with faith and thanks.
We invite you to be part of these layers of praise today as we encounter God, who has shown us in history and in his words that he is gracious, slow to anger, and abounding in steadfast love.
