SEEK DAILY (NBC) DAILY DEVOTIONAL December 20, 2021 (GOD’S CHOSEN NATION)
TOPIC: GOD’S CHOSEN NATION
Bible Text: Psalm 33:1-12
“Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord, the people he chose for his inheritance.” Psalm 33:12, NIV
A man (now a pastor), sharing his life story and praising God said, as the last born of his parents, he had been written off by his siblings. Suddenly, God rewrote his story, called him and he became a royal priesthood.
Today’s psalm is an exhortation to praise God as a chosen nation. He saw thankful praise as the breath and language of holy joy and that is required of us. Vs. 3 “Sing to him a new song; play skillfully and shout for joy.” It is expected of us to sing a song for new mercies and for those compassions which are new every morning. The upright whom God has chosen and honour so much, should give honour to God.
The upright should praise God in a comely manner with their whole hearts for His infinite perfection. God made all things. The earth is full of His unfailing love. His chosen people are to fear Him and stand in awe of Him always. Let this thought be in us always that God governs the world and He did it in His infinite wisdom before we were born, and will do it when we are silent in dust.
Insight: The fear of God is the beginning of wisdom.
Prayer: Lord, help me to love and reverence You.
