“He made heaven and earth, the sea, and everything in them. He keeps every promise forever.He gives justice to the oppressed and food to the hungry.The LORD frees the prisoners.The LORD opens the eyes of the blind.The LORD lifts up those who are weighed down.The LORD loves the godly. The LORD protects the foreigners among us. He cares for the orphans and widows, but he frustrates the plans of the wicked.The LORD will reign forever. He will be your God, O Jerusalem, throughout the generations. Praise the LORD!” (Psalm 146:6-10 NLT)
To fully understand where I’ve started in quoting this passage of this Psalm, one would have to start from the first verse. Personally, I don’t think it requires much by way of explication, but for those who may not know or have forgotten, here’s the reminder:
He has created all that was created and without Him, nothing was created.
He is not absent-minded and He keeps every promise He ever makes to all who believe Him.
He opens blinded eyes, both physically and spiritually and when we seek Him, He gives us the motivation and inspiration to rise above our circumstances.
He loves all who live according to His Word because He has a plan for all to achieve.
His protection extends to the those who live among us because of our faith in Him, when they don’t believe. He rains on the just and unjust alike. His covenant with us, is the umbrella, that shelters those in our presence.
He speaks to us and through us, in our obedience to Him, those who are without, will have all they need.
Whenever the enemy rises and dares to show his ugliness, The Lord has an army, bold, brave, and courageous, rising up to extol the virtues of The Lord and to remind the enemy he is already defeated.
The Lord our God will reign forever for He is the same yesterday, today and forever–He never changes His mind or His Word towards those who love Him and obey His Word–to love like He loves and live like we’re living for Him.
Hallelujah! This is what The Lord does!
