His glory

Wednesday, February 8, 2012

Sing to God, sing in praise of his name,
   extol him who rides on the clouds;
   rejoice before him—his name is the LORD.
A father to the fatherless, a defender of widows,
   is God in his holy dwelling.
God sets the lonely in families...
Psalm 68:4-6

My wonderful friend, Anne, emailed these verses to me recently and I was reminded of what an amazing God we serve! Our God finds His glory in being a Father to the Fatherless! He who rides upon the clouds and has been crowned King of Kings, delights in showing His favor to the least of these.

"As a gracious God, a God of mercy and tender compassion...he uses his power for the relief of those that are distressed, v. 5, 6. The fatherless, the widows, the solitary, find him a God all-sufficient to them. Observe how much God's goodness is his glory. He that rides on the heavens by his name Jah, one would think should immediately have been adored as King of kings and Lord of lords, and the sovereign director of all the affairs of states and nations; he is so, but this he rather glories in, that he is a Father of the fatherless. Though God be high, yet has he respect unto the lowly. Happy are those that have an interest in such a God as this. He that rides upon the heavens is a Father worth having; thrice happy are the people whose God is the Lord."
Matthew Henry, commentary on Psalm 68

Father, we see your glory in the way you care for your precious children...for the least of these. You are the One who is exalted above all the earth, and yet You care for the littlest ones, the weakest ones. Thank you, Father, that You reveal Your heart in the way that You love. May we love as You love, our precious Father. May our glory be found in the way that we love You and in the way that we love like You. Glory to You, Lord. Glory to You!
