The LORD Does Great Things for His People

Psalm 126:3

“The LORD hath done great things for us; whereof we are glad.”

The above statement is a grand testimony concerning the LORD’s benevolent deeds for His people. The people of God acknowledge in those words their joy that the LORD has done “great things” for them.

They were speaking from their experience of the LORD’s actions. They knew that His actions were done for their favour. They also recognise that His deeds were “great things”. He does for us what we ourselves can never do.

Have you considered all that God has done for you? How would you describe them? Great or insignificant? Is not the salvation that God has prepared for you through the Lord Jesus Christ’s death, resurrection and ascension great? Is it not a great thing that the LORD has delivered us from hell and made us His children and heirs of heaven? Is it not a great thing that He hears our prayers and answers us according to His abundant goodness and mercy?

The Lord blesses us with many things that we could never have achieved on our own – whether it be the courage and confidence that He gives to us, or the strength and wisdom through His Spirit and the Word, or godly friends and fellowship through His church. Of course, there are many more things that the LORD does for each of us. Let us, therefore, be glad to say that “The LORD hath done great things for us; whereof we are glad.”
