“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 117:1-2, ESV).
These two verses make the whole of psalm 117. Yet they capture much of the heart of worship—the enthusiastic call to praise God, and remembrance of the depths of His graciousness towards us. Here is the focal point of joy and hope, for worship is the ultimate purpose of life. The people of God, now as then, summon all who will hear to turn to the Lord, to come to know His love and to delight in Him.
May your days echo with the praise of God, who has so deeply and enduringly shown His love to us. He is worthy of all our worship and adoration. God give us grace to live our lives before Him, and to faithfully walk in His paths, to His glory.
