My mouth shall tell of Your righteousness
And of Your salvation all day long;
For I do not know the sum of them.
Psalm 71:15 NASB
I will always speak about Your righteousness and Your salvation because they are so great, so profound that I cannot truly understand how profound they are.
God is righteous. He saves. His ways are beyond ours – our finite minds cannot fully understand them.
We are not capable of completely understanding the depth of the God’s righteousness, His rightness. We cannot fully comprehend the depth, the power of His salvation. These truths ought to be so profound, so overwhelming, that I can’t contain them.
We are called to speak out about God’s righteousness and salvation, to let their true depth, power, profoundness become so real to us that we’re unable not to speak about them.
When we forget this, we neglect our mission as disciples of Christ to share the gospel. Or perhaps we feel that our sin is unforgivable, or we even minimize our sin.
We need God’s salvation. We need to recognize His profound otherness, and we need to be redefined by the love He has shown us in light of that otherness.
His grace must change us. We cannot.
Pray this way:
God I want to be a witness. I am in awe of Your righteousness and salvation. Please give me the boldness to share it. So overwhelm me with the profoundness of Your nature that I can’t help but share it.
