-*Application* Take time to extol all of the great attributes and characteristics of our great God and King, Yahweh, today. He is worth every ounce of our praise. Tell of Him to the next generation. Darkness will prevail unless we shine the Light of Christ with them unashamedly. The LORD’s splendor is glorious and His power is intense with awesome acts. Testify of His greatness. He is good and righteous towards all, “and His mercies are over all His works (Psalm 145:9).” Give thanks unto Him for His abounding sustenance and make Him known famously. His Kingdom is everlasting, and His dominion endures throughout all generations (Psalm 145:13). He is willing to lift up those who fall and are humble enough to beseech His help (Psalm 145:14). He satisfies our desires like nothing else can. He is righteous in all His ways and kind in all His deeds (Psalm 145:17). “The LORD is near to all who call upon Him; to all who call upon Him in truth. He will fulfill the desire of those who fear Him; He will also hear their cry and will save them (Psalm 145:18-19).” Not only that, but “the LORD keeps all who love Him (Psalm 145:20a).” However, the wicked He will destroy; therefore, our mouths should praise Him and all flesh should “bless His holy Name forever and ever (Psalm 145:20b-21).”
