Psalm 111 Mar. 5  1Praise Yah! I will give thanks to Yahweh with my whole heart, in the council of the upright, and in the congregation. 2Yahweh’s works are great, pondered by all those who delight in them. 3His work is honour and majesty, His righteousness endures forever. 4He has caused His wonderful works to be remembered; Yahweh is gracious and merciful. 5He has given food to those who fear Him; He is ever mindful of His covenant. 6He has shown His people the power of His works, in giving them the heritage of the nations. 7The works of His hands are truth and justice; all His precepts are sure, 8they are established forever and ever. They are done in truth and uprightness. 9He has sent redemption to His people, He has ordained His covenant forever. His name is holy and awesome! 10The fear of Yahweh is the beginning of wisdom. All those who do His work have a good understanding. His praise endures forever!   


111:5 God is thinking about the covenant made with us all the time! And yet how often in daily life do we reflect upon the fact that we really are in covenant relationship with God... how often do we recollect the part we share in the promises to Abraham, how frequently do we feel that we really are in a personal covenant with God Almighty?
111:10 Those who do His work have a good understanding- There is an upward spiral in spirituality. The more we do God’s work, the more we will come to understand Him. The very process of working with Him reveals more of Him to us.
