“Great are the works of the Lord; They are studied by all who delight in them.”

Today’s devotion comes from Psalm chapter 111.

“Praise the Lord!
I will give thanks to the Lord with all my heart,
In the company of the upright and in the assembly.
Great are the works of the Lord;
They are studied by all who delight in them.
3 Splendid and majestic is His work,
And His righteousness endures forever.
4 He has made His wonders to be remembered;
The Lord is gracious and compassionate.
5 He has given food to those who fear Him;
He will remember His covenant forever.
6 He has made known to His people the power of His works,
In giving them the heritage of the nations.

7 The works of His hands are truth and justice;
All His precepts are sure.
8 They are upheld forever and ever;
They are performed in truth and uprightness.
He has sent redemption to His people;
He has ordained His covenant forever;
Holy and awesome is His name.
10 The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom;
A good understanding have all those who do His commandments;
His praise endures forever.”  Psalm chapter 111.

“Great are the works of the Lord;
They are studied by all who delight in them.”  Verse 2.

“He has sent redemption to His people;
He has ordained His covenant forever;
Holy and awesome is His name.”  Verse 9.

Reformed Doctrine proclaims and praises God’s great works of redemption from His “Unconditional Election” to His “Limited Atonement” to His “Irresistible Grace” to His “Preservation of the Saints”,  the “U”, “L”, “I” and “P” of “TULIP”, the Five Points of Calvinism, the Reformed Doctrine of Salvation.

Other doctrine proclaims and praises man’s alleged free-will.

But, Reformed Doctrine proclaims God’s great works of redemption.  This is the gospel, the only truly good news.

“Praise the Lord!
I will give thanks to the Lord with all my heart,
In the company of the upright and in the assembly.”  Verse 1.
