Psalm 40:5 – Many Wonderful Works

Psalm 34:19
Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the Lord delivereth him out of them all.

Psalm 40:5
Many, O Lord my God, are thy wonderful works which thou hast done, and thy thoughts which are to us-ward: they cannot be reckoned up in order unto thee: if I would declare and speak of them, they are more than can be numbered.

-The Bible is not shy when it comes to the difficulties that we must all surely face in this life.  What is important to remember is that no matter how many afflictions we face, the Lord has even more wonderful works to offer on our behalf.  If we were to take time and really think back, we may be able to recount our every experience that we considered “bad”; but not one of us could ever count all the good things that the Lord has done for us.  What a great God, not only will he deliver us from affliction, but he comes to us with pleasant thoughts and wonderful works.

One thought on “  Psalm 40:5 – Many Wonderful Works

  1. Amen, and yet we are told over and over in Scripture to Praise Him for His Wonderful Works! When we can purposely override our tendency to remember the “bad” and give thanks for His Blessings, perhaps our sanctification would be nearer complete.
