Your Works Are Awe-Inspiring

Open Your Bible

Psalm 66:1-20

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!

    God speaks to me in the quiet, bringing peace to a troubled mind. When life’s chaos gets to much I feel his hand upon me. God restores peace to my soul and gives in the courage to keep going when things feel overwhelming.

    For 12+ years I was told I could not have children. I was also in an abusive marriage. Not only did God pull me out of the darkness and bring me a kind and loving husband, but I now hold my 1 month old baby girl in my arms as I shout the praises of the Lord!!

    Hi friends!

    I wanted to come here and ask for extra prayer for my family, specifically my mom’s side. In the past few weeks, four different people’s accounts online have been hacked and stolen (including my older brother Mario and my father). I don’t believe in coincidences. I felt led to pray and intercede for my mom’s side, who are included in this. We were all very close growing up in NJ.
    It is strange timing because I have recorded a song about my family that likely will be releasing this summer. It’s a prayer over them about how we need to stay “in love” to keep our family in unity. I do believe this song is anointed by God to bless my family. It is His.

    The devil is crafty, so I feel like maybe I need to play offense and ask more than myself to be praying for everyone.

    I appreciate your prayers in advance. There is power in numbers.

    Praying for other requests shared today <3 love you girls.

    So all who don’t know about the May Breakfast tradition (some churches here have been holding them for over 125 years), they are open to the public and help support churches. Menu – scrambled eggs, ham, home fries, baked beans, homemade muffins and PIE, and Jonny cakes (cornmeal cakes). We also sell homemade crepe paper baskets filled with fudge or plants. You’re all invited!❤️

  8. Mercy says:

    The Lord has done so much for me throughout my young adulthood. I moved to Canada after high school to attend university. As a young girl, I was so alone in this big country without any families or friends. But GOD- He brought me to Himself. It was a very lonely lonely time with many questions and confusions. I was invited to church through Sunday ride of some amazing faithful men and women, so I could attend Bible studies with other students. That’s my Genesis with GOD. God sustained me through some storms and troubles living alone, from surviving roommate bullies, graduating, struggling to find jobs, moving to a new city, arranging accommodation, then to getting married and having children- without almost no help from families, through uncertainty and fear BUT the Lord was there through “His hands and feet”. It was much struggle, but it was also much joy. Now I looked back, it was unbelievable how all that has happened. With His grace …bad times blossoming into pleasant surprises of our memories. The bad seems to vanish, the bad doesn’t seem that bad, and the goodness remains. His Goodness. I was the first one to be saved in my family, and because He took me out far away, I was not like the way my family grew up. Or else I wouldn’t know Him. Afflictions do come, fear, terrors and deep waters do come. I have been learning to surrender, in deep waters where I can’t breathe, in high furnace season when I get burned, in loneliness, in panic, in frustration…just to surrender and give thanks. I cried enough…but how much is enough…who knows. BUT GOD is faithful as He collects my tears in a bottle, He keeps track of all my sorrows, He records each one in His book (Psalm 56:8). And He wastes no pain…yet I don’t know how He did that. Though at the time when pain happens, I don’t see the point for it, especially the pain for being righteous, if you do good, who will hate you, but there is the type of pain that comes when people hate you for being like Jesus, for being the light on the hill, and people will hate that purity of Him that you might carry- I struggled with that for a while…but then I surrender, I let go. For all glory shall be to Him, and I am the reflection of Him at my cost. I probably didn’t count the cost ahead of time, like the Bible said we should, but now I know how much it costs to follow Him…everything. His Word today brought me hope, “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”. Glory to Him. Into abundance, here we come! Rejoice with me. It is promised. Be blessed dear sisters.
