O Lord, you are my God; I will exalt you and praise your name, for in perfect faithfulness you have done marvelous things, things planned long ago.
Praise and exaltation – for God in perfect faithfulness has done marvelous things: rescuing Israel over and over again, salvation for all including the Gentiles, destroying the death shroud and swallowing up death forever, bringing down the “bad guys”, those who celebrate evil. All of this deserves a song of praise, but mostly we should praise Him for Who He Is, and that He chose us. He is our God. What confidence, what trust we can have no matter what is happening in our world. For He has promised, therefore we know, that HE remains the same.
