Podcast #221: “Witness” by Jordan Feliz

Witnessing God's Goodness in Psalm 36

God’s goodness is unfathomable. David tries to explain it in Psalm 36 with really big metaphors as a witness to the awe he feels when considering God. Similarly, Jordan Feliz’ song “Witness” calls us to testify to the virtues of our Father in heaven as well.

Let’s use the song to inspire us to read the Psalm and see what we learn, shall we?

This Week’s Challenge

Dive into Psalm 36 — read it; listen to it; meditate on it. Store up in your heart these amazing characteristics of God. Consider the benefits to the upright in heart. Be warned by the folly of the sinner refusing to surrender to the limitless love, faithfulness, righteousness, justice, and care of the Father. Don’t stop at my few words and pondering — pray and ask God for fresh vision and revelation as you interact with His Word for yourself.
