“How can I repay the LORD for all his goodness to me?” (Ps
The Lord is SOOO good to us that we just stand in awe! The thoughts of what He has done for us make us want to bow down and worship Him! Don't you wish sometimes that there was something you could do to repay Him? But what can we do to repay God for the glorious gift of His Son? How could we repay Him for the blessings He pours out upon us without measure?
I've got discouraging news for you: There is NO WAY to repay what He's done for us! Nothing that we do even begins to repay Him!
King David must have felt humbled by this, too, for He, too, asks the question: “How can I repay the LORD for all his goodness to me?” (Ps 116:12). Let's take a look at the answer David replies to his question: “I will lift up the cup of salvation and call on the name of the LORD. I will fulfill my vows to the LORD in the presence of all his people.” (Ps 116:13-14).
What can we do to repay the Creator of the universe? What can we do to repay the God of our Salvation? What can we do to repay Him for sending His only Son to die, so that we could live? We can accept the gift of salvation! We can throw off the burdens of sin. We can throw off the yoke of the law. We can accept His gift on faith!
What do you say? Shall we “repay” God today? If you wish to do so, please join me in prayer:
Father God, I come to you in all thanksgiving for what you have done for me! In all humility, I wish to repay you today! I call upon Your name! For there is NO OTHER NAME under heaven given to men, by which I can be saved! I know that I am assured of my salvation. I throw off the burdens of my sin, and I throw off the yoke of the law, and I accept Your gift by faith! Halleluiah! Praise God! I'm a child of the King!
“I will lift up the cup of salvation and call on the name of the LORD. I will fulfill my vows to the LORD in the presence of all his people.” (Ps 116:13-14).
