Study Guide – Psalm 145:8-12

Psalm145-8-12

8 The Lord is merciful and compassionate,
    slow to get angry and filled with unfailing love.
9 The Lord is good to everyone.
    He showers compassion on all his creation.
10 All of your works will thank you, Lord,
    and your faithful followers will praise you.
11 They will speak of the glory of your kingdom;
    they will give examples of your power.
12 They will tell about your mighty deeds
    and about the majesty and glory of your reign. NLT

 

Stop. Take a moment to memorize verse 8 right now. Go over it again and again in your mind until you have it down.

 

How could verse 8 change your life?

 

How could verse 9 change your life?

 

Look at verses 10-12. Would you include yourself among the "works" who thank the Lord?

 

Would you include yourself among those who "speak of the glory" of the Lord's kingdom? How about among those who "tell about" the Lord's mighty deeds?
