Psalm 33 – Unfailing love
Three times in this psalm God’s love is described as “unfailing” V.5, v.18 and v.22. Things of earth may fail or not turn out as we wish but God’s love is fail proof, something we can totally rely on. Our church use to sing a song called, “Unfailing Love” (I think it is from Hillsong). It says in part: When the darkness of my sins, or my blindness, or my burdens, or my memories so fill my thoughts that I begin to have doubts about God’s love for me, then I need Jesus to come and reminded me again and again of His unfailing love.
V.1 says it is “fitting” for us to praise Him. It is the right and proper thing for us to do, regardless of whether we feel like it or not. The appropriate response is for us to praise the Lord, because the Lord is always worthy of our praises.
V.11 “the plans of the Lord stand firm forever, the purposes of his heart through all generations” … V.15 “He who forms the hearts of all, who considers everything they do”. God is not taken by surprise. He knows what He is planning. He knows what others are planning. We can trust Him. “I know not what the future holds, but I know Who holds the future.”
During this next week I’ll be looking at Psalm 2 I’ll post about it next Thursday.
