Psalms 107:21

Oh, That Men Would!

"In the multitude of people is the king's honor," begins the writer of Proverbs 14:28. A good king is worthy of great praise and great accolades from many people. A righteous king is worthy of respect and fear and honor from many people. And a king that is all of these should have multitudes of people honoring and praising him. If human kings should receive such honors, how much more is the holy King and LORD of all? Oh, that people would praise the LORD!

The LORD created the Garden of Eden as a custom habitat for people. The LORD planned a Savior for mankind - even before people sinned. The LORD clothed Adam and Eve and continued to instruct and lead them. The LORD warned Cain that sin was waiting at his door, desiring to destroy him but that Cain must master it. (Genesis 4:7) The LORD called Abraham from astrology into an intimate relationship. The LORD made a covenant with Abraham that through him He would bless all nations. The LORD protected Abraham's descendants through famines and plagues and battles.

The LORD provided manna when the Israelites could not feed themselves and food when the multitude was sitting at the feet of the Savior. Twice. The LORD provided a hands-on example of how to live a holy life and how to please God.

Today, the LORD is still working, providing all that you need and He hears your prayers. And it is His goodness that leads people to repentance. (Romans 2:4) Oh, that people would praise the LORD for His goodness and His wonderful works to the children of men! What do you think? (VAL)
