Today’s reading in the Psalms is a precursor to the hymn, “Count Your Many Blessings.”
Many, O LORD my God, are the wonders which You have done,
And Your thoughts toward us;
There is none to compare with You.
If I would declare and speak of them,
They would be too numerous to count.
Take all of God’s past deeds — His wondrous miracles for Israel — combine them with His future plans — His thoughts about Israel — and you have an incomparable God.
The Psalmist says that try as he might, it would be too difficult to count all of these deeds and provisions of God for His people. Yet in the remaining verses of this psalm, He does just that. He recounts the care of God for His people and for the psalmist himself.
David’s pattern of considering the provisions of God is a worthy example to emulate.
Using this psalm as a starring point, how many of the uncountable wonders of God can you enumerate? (Perhaps keeping a list over the next day or two or week or two might be a worthy means to stimulating worship and gratitude in your heart.)
