Reading the Psalms recently I noticed a different kind of Psalm – where they rehearsed God’s history with them as a nation, His faithfulness, correction and lovingkindness. Sometimes this history was interspersed with phrases like “His love endures forever.” (Psalm 136)
Think about your own history in God. Take a few moments and make a time line of events in your life. Pencil in God’s intervention, how you saw Him at work or the ways He’s demonstrated His love to you personally. Now write it out as a Psalm of remembrance of His goodness to you. Consider adding a phrase about His faithfulness or love to you after each sentence. When you finish, read it out loud. There’s something powerful about proclaiming our history in God and His praise. You might even share it with a friend. Pass on the encouragement!
