Psalm 118:24 – Verse of the Day 3/14/13
Psalm 118 concludes the sections of Psalms sung by the Jews at Passover (Psalms 113-118). Hence the Psalm looks back to the mighty works of God in the past and forward to his even more awesome works in the future. The Passover was a remarkable demonstration of God’s faithfulness to save his people and it pointed forward to the ultimate salvation that would come in Christ. It is not surprising that Psalm 118 is one of the most quoted Psalms in the New Testament.
As you remember all that God has done for you in the past, allow this reflection to lead you to rejoice in the present. Spend some time giving thanks for all that God has given you, and especially for the forgiveness of your sin. Pray that God would enable you to rejoice every day, regardless of your immediate circumstances.
