What does this psalm teach us about God? How does this psalm show us something about the character of God that we can praise?
Remembering is essential to a life of joy. In verse 8, we are told God remembers his covenant forever. Read Genesis 17:7. God has promised he will be our God and we will be his people. What is one way remembering this truth impacts your daily life?
There are many ways we practice remembering: with repetition (daily meditating on God’s word), with each other (gathered worship), with our stories (remembering God’s goodness in our personal lives), and with hope for change (confident trust in God’s transforming power). How are these practices part of your life? Are there other ways you remember God and look to the Lord in your daily life?
