Verse of the day:
All this happened so they would follow his decrees and obey his instructions. Praise the Lord! (Psalm 105:45)
There’s a gentleman from our church who always responds when asked how he’s doing with, “Abundantly blessed!” I love that! It’s catchy and packs a powerful punch! This man has gone through it too. He’s had highs and he’s had some very low lows. Yet, consistently his response is always, “Abundantly blessed!”
In today’s Psalm, the author goes through the abbreviated history of the Israelites’ vagabond years highlighting the peak moments. He covers their exodus from Egypt with gold and silver, quail provisions, manna, water from rocks, up to the point they take over the promised land. The final verse climaxes to this one captivating point: all of these blessings were given in hopes of obedience.
