The works of the LORD are great, sought out of all them that have pleasure therein. His work is honourable and glorious: and his righteousness endureth for ever. He hath made his wonderful works to be remembered: the LORD is gracious and full of compassion.
“The works of the LORD are great” OK, but how do I identify them? Firstly, Romans 8:28-29 provides essential clues “And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose. For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.” Any time we see that alerting phrase, “all things” we must stop and think about which things are excluded from the all. Or am I willing to except that “no” thing is the only thing excluded from the all.
Secondly, am I included in that set of individuals who love God and are called according to His purpose? How about Romans 10:9 “if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believein your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.” Yes, I am a stumbling, bumbling believer, but I am assured that the effectiveness of the belief depends upon His work on the Cross, not my performance in present day America. Hallelujah, praise the LORD for His goodness to the children of men.
