“Great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised, and his greatness is unsearchable” (Psalm 145:3, ESV).
The 145th psalm is a continuous outpouring of grateful worship. God is worthy in Himself, and in His wonderful works of mercy for His people. David’s intention to praise the Lord perpetually (vv.1-2) is a reflection of the infinite praiseworthiness of God (v.3). God’s majesty calls for our worship, but our praises will always fall short, for His glory is beyond all measure.
In our self-centered and consumeristic society, we have a tendency to think about worship in terms of the experience of the worshipper, rather than the majesty of the God we worship. This is the opposite of what true worship is about. Not only our gatherings as the church, but our entire lives, are meant to be God-directed, focused on His greatness. Give glory to God, who is worthy of all our worship and honor and praise.
