Tweeting requires a person to speak succinctly and powerfully in 140 characters. Say it and don’t get longwinded.
Compared to its neighbor, the long, powerful 119th Psalm, Psalm 117 is just a tweet. Two verses. But what a powerful revelation of the nature of God in just a heavenly tweet.
“For great is his love toward us, and the faithfulness of the LORD endures forever.”
Here’s how God is towards you and I. Incredible love, faithfulness that doesn’t quit. Stop and think about that in relation to your life.
So, what should our response be to His love and faithfulness? For sure we should claim the fullness of His Spirit each day of our lives in order to live like that towards others.
But, right now, just this moment? “Praise the LORD, all you nations; extol him, all you peoples.” Do it for who He is and what He does.
Actually, the Lord said it in two verses in the little Ps. 117 tweet. It’s taken me a bit longer.
Praise the Lord, all you nations;
extol him, all you peoples.
For great is his love toward us,
and the faithfulness of the Lord endures forever.
Praise the Lord.(Ps. 117, NIV)
