From Marben’s Sermon:
As I survey the electoral landscape, there still remains a reason for us to give praise! I am reminded of the opportunity, assurance and promises of Psalms 146. In the first stanza, the psalmist calls on us to praise the Lord for a lifetime. We are reminded that no matter what happens, we always have this opportunity. He says, “I will sing praises to my God as long as I live.” The assurance comes as the psalmist calls us to not put our trust in mortal leaders. If anything, the election has reinforced the psalmist truism that “mortals cannot save us.” The promises described in Psalm 146 comes as the psalmist reminds us, “happy is the person whose help and hope is from God.”
God is faithful forever!
