The Reality of Revelation

Have you ever experienced a time in  your life where the truths of scripture became a reality to you? Where something you believed and knew in your head became a reality to your heart and life? The psalmist often communicates God’s faithfulness, steadfastness,  protection, etc and he communicates them in a very personal way because he was at the receiving end!

vesuxcExamples from the Psalms
“Praise the Lord, all nations! Extol him, all peoples! For great is his steadfast love toward us, and the faithfulness of the Lord endures forever. Praise the Lord!” -Psalm 117

“But may all who seek you rejoice and be glad in you; may those who love your salvation say continually, “Great is the Lord!” As for me, I am poor and needy, but the Lord takes thought for me. You are my help and my deliverer; do not delay, O my God!” -Psalm 40:16

“I will also praise you with the harp for your faithfulness, O my God; I will sing praises to you with the lyre, O Holy One of Israel.” -Psalm 71:22

Another thing we see in the Psalms is the praise, thanksgiving, glory, and honor ascribed to the Lord for his steadfast love, faithfulness, salvation, etc. When God demonstrates His love to us and makes His revealed word a reality in our lives we should respond with praise and thanksgiving to God because He is worthy to be praised!  We can trust the promises of the scripture that God will always be with His people, strengthening them, and upholding them and it is amazing when you can claim that yourself. I hope this is an encouragement to you!
