PSALM 136:1-26 In 1715 King Louis the 14 th of France died after a reign of 72 years. He had called himself “the Great,” and was the monarch who made the famous statement, “I am the state!” His court was the most magnificent in Europe, and his funeral was equally spectacular. As his casket was put into position, orders were given that the cathedral should be very dimly lit with only a special candle set above his casket, to dramatize his greatness. At his memorial, thousands waited in silence. Then the preacher began to speak and he slowly reaching down, and snuffed out the candle and said, “Only God is great.” Is it about you and me? NO!   It’s all about Him and not about you and me!   It’s all about Him and His attributes and character!   It’s all about Him and His plan for mankind!   It’s all about Him in the written word   It’s all about Him in redemption and regeneration   It’s all about Him!

Psalm 145:1-21 What is the one thing a great majority of us have done to tell someone else about who we are? The Answer............... A RESUME !  Resumes are very important especially if you’re applying for a job.  Resumes give information about the character of an individual.  Resumes help the employer to make the right decisions when it comes to hiring the best person for the job.  Resumes are like a short biography of your life experiences and abilities.  What I’m trying to get at is.......... when I read this Psalm I see something amazing about the faithfulness and providence of God.

Psalm 51:6 Openness and accountability are two main ingredients missing in our society and the church these days.  These are things that we desperately need the most, and these are the things we most resist.  Do you have any secrets?  Is there something in your life or past that only you know about?  If so, I’m going to tell you some bad news this morning.... if you have private secrets that you never want known by others.  See! I’m going to let you in on a little secret of mine. God knows everything!  This is one of many amazing attributes God has! We call it “Omniscience” Omniscience is defined as “the state of having total knowledge, the quality of knowing everything.” For God to be sovereign over His creation of all things, whether visible or invisible, He has to be all-knowing. His omniscience is not restricted to any one person in the Godhead—Father, Son, and Holy Spirit are all by nature omniscient.  This means that….. God knows everything. 1 John 3:2
