“Praise the Lord, all nations!
Extol him, all peoples!
For great is his steadfast love toward us,
and the faithfulness of the Lord endures forever.
Praise the Lord!” (Psalm 117)
This is a pretty short psalm. It only has two verses. Yet these two verses pack a lot of truth in them. This psalm sings of God’s love for us and how it is steadfast and true. It sings of God’s faithfulness which endures forever. And it reminds us of how we are to respond: “Praise the Lord…Extol him…”
The psalmist calls for all the nations and all peoples to praise the Lord and rightfully so. God is faithful and He loves us so much. Our response should be to give Him the praise and honor He deserves. This week, let us remember how great God’s love is to us and how His faithfulness endures. Let that call us to join with others in praising God.
