Some of the Psalms take on an epic nature and the 18th one is a great example.

These awesome works are done because of right relationship where our hero knows where to put his trust. As a result not only does God do awesome things, but He equips our hero to get in on the act.
There are thrills and spills galore know this retelling of the wonderful works for and through His people. Then when the action stops and you catch your breath there is something to realise. It is not just a story. It is someone who is recounting the goodness of the Lord, to display the wonders of the glorious God fulfilling His greatness utilising creative expression to do so. Our God is worthy of it.
If we were to truly consider the things God has done for us and how privileged we are to be in right relationship with Him, we would likewise look to be effusive in displaying those good works to others too.
For His Name’s Sake
