Day 5

Your Works Are Awe-Inspiring

from the Psalms of Gratitude reading plan


Psalm 66:1-20

BY She Reads Truth

Text: Psalm 66:1-20

In this 2-week reading plan, we are assuming a posture of thanksgiving before the Lord by meditating on ten Psalms of Gratitude. Rather than provide a written response to each Psalm, we have offered a simple yet meaningful activity designed to help us recall God’s mercies to us and through time. So grab a journal, and let’s create our own songs of thanksgiving to God.

Psalm 66

Praise for God’s Mighty Acts
For the choir director. A song. A psalm.

Shout joyfully to God, all the earth!
Sing about the glory of His name;
make His praise glorious.
Say to God, “How awe-inspiring are Your works!
Your enemies will cringe before You
because of Your great strength.
All the earth will worship You
and sing praise to You.
They will sing praise to Your name.” Selah

Come and see the wonders of God;
His acts for humanity are awe-inspiring.
He turned the sea into dry land,
and they crossed the river on foot.
There we rejoiced in Him.
He rules forever by His might;
He keeps His eye on the nations.
The rebellious should not exalt themselves.Selah
Praise our God, you peoples;
let the sound of His praise be heard.
He keeps us alive
and does not allow our feet to slip.

For You, God, tested us;
You refined us as silver is refined.
You lured us into a trap;
You placed burdens on our backs.
You let men ride over our heads;
we went through fire and water,
but You brought us out to abundance.

I will enter Your house with burnt offerings;
I will pay You my vows
that my lips promised
and my mouth spoke during my distress.
I will offer You fattened sheep as burnt offerings,
with the fragrant smoke of rams;
I will sacrifice oxen with goats. Selah

Come and listen, all who fear God,
and I will tell what He has done for me.
I cried out to Him with my mouth,
and praise was on my tongue.
If I had been aware of malice in my heart,
the Lord would not have listened.
However, God has listened;
He has paid attention to the sound of my prayer.
May God be praised!
He has not turned away my prayer
or turned His faithful love from me.

Dig Deeper:

Sing about the glory of our God! The author of Psalm 66 gives thanks to God by proclaiming His mighty deeds—even those which he calls tests from the Lord—and praising God for His awe-inspiring goodness and might. Let’s do the same today.  

Come and listen, all who fear God,

and I will tell what He has done for me!

    That supports my dreams. God has saved my body from a destructive eating disorder and given me a new identity. Even when I still feel guilty and ashamed, I know that’s the enemy not God speaking. God speaks healing and love over my pain.
