“But may all who seek you rejoice and be glad in you;
may those who long for your saving help
always say, ‘The Lord is great!’
Here the psalmist is praising God, in a beautiful way, with a heart of trusting Him! Ain’t that so cool?
And in a very real sense he is also praying for other people, which is called intercession. He wants everyone that seeks God’s help to have an answer to their prayers that brings joy and rejoicing! Hallelujah!
And when we all give God credit for the great and wonderful things that happen in our lives, what does that do? People notice that don’t they? And suddenly, within our praise, our faith catches on to others. We can inspire people by simply declaring what God has done!
Lord God, thank you for the great things that take place in our lives. And as we pray for other people, may great things happen in their lives as well! Help us to be filled with faith as we praise you so we can be good witnesses for You. Hallelujah! And amen!
