The Bible is full of songs of praise. When we consider the words of these songs, we see deep, rich, pattern-altering examples of how to appropriately respond to our great God. The lyrics of “Great Is Our God” by Plumb are reflected in a song written by David and given to us as Psalm 145.
Sometimes we blow past these meaningful songs without letting them sink in and transform the way we think. This week we will slow down.
On this episode I discuss:
- Taking a B.I.T.E. out of Scripture – our Bible Interaction Tool Exercises this week are:
- Read in context
- Read the text aloud
- Reading through this Psalm and not remembering what I read the next day – Psalm 145
- Noticing how my character traits do not match the traits of my heavenly Father
- How praying for others and sharing the verses you are reading can help you retain
- A “hidden” promise in this Psalm that God will satisfy our hunger for Him – Psalm 145:16
- How I understand the struggle to keep daily time in God’s Word a priority
- Considering the many ways the psalmist reflects proclaiming the greatness of God
- As a faithful follower of God, we should be prepared to speak of the examples of God’s power
- Teaching our children to “See God” – Give Them Wisdom Video by Merida Brooks
- “Magnolia spotting” with my daughter, Meredith

This Week’s Challenge
Get inspired by this week’s song to dig into Psalm 145. Spend some real time in it. Try using the Bible Interaction Tool Exercise of reading it out loud. Don’t just do a quick drive-by. Meditate on the words and even try to remember what you’ve read! Make a list of your own personal examples of God’s goodness in your life and share them with others…proclaim them. May you bless His holy name forever and ever.
