"I will tell of the kindnesses of the Lord,
the deeds for which he is to be praised,
according to all the Lord has done for us--
yes, the many good things
he has done for Israel,
according to his compassion and many kindnesses.
He said, “Surely they are my people,
children who will be true to me”;
and so he became their Savior.
In all their distress he too was distressed,
and the angel of his presence saved them.
In his love and mercy he redeemed them;
he lifted them up and carried them
all the days of old."
What a picture of God's mercy.
What a reminder of God's grace.
What a reminder of God's steadfast love.
What a picture of God's compassion.
It is God who saves, lifts up, and carries us.
What a reminder.
Praise. On this day. On the Lord's Day we remember all you have done for us and offer our heartfelt praise. In Jesus's name. Amen.
