We can be what God has called us to be because of a holy song that we sing inside our hearts and deep within our souls when we mention the name of Jesus, sense His presence, honour God, exalt His name and celebrate His praise, and His only.
That sense of triumph, and triumphing itself comes when we acknowledge that holiness is ascribed to the Lord in every part of it.
How happy we are, the people whose God is the Lord.
We have work to do, temptations to grapple with and afflictions to bear. We are weak in ourselves; but His grace is our strength.
We found ourselves often in sorrow, but in Him we have comfort; He is our song. Sin and death and hell threaten us – but He is and will be our salvation.
The Lord is a God of almighty power, and a warning to those that strive with their Maker! He is a God of matchless perfection; He is glorious in holiness; His holiness is His glory. His holiness appears in the hatred of sin, and His wrath against obstinate sinners. It appears in His faithfulness to His own promise. What is a matter of praise to those that follow Christ is of dread to those that reject Him.
He is doing wonders, things out of the common course of nature; wondrous to those in whose favour they are worked through, who are so unworthy, that they had no reason to expect them. There were wonders of power and wonders of grace; in both, God is to be humbly adored. Matthew Henry
