Our mouths will tell

My mouth will tell of your righteous acts, of your deeds of salvation all the day, for their number is past my knowledge. – Psalm 71:15

The psalmist likely had in mind temporal acts of salvation from physical harm.  His words have even more impact now that Christ has purchased eternal salvation for a great multitude.  And how true it is that their number is past our knowledge. 

Like the psalmist, we should be floored by God’s righteous acts and His deeds of salvation in Christ, and we too should be motivated to tell of them with our mouths.  How can we stay silent when we know what God has done?

Lord, give us the fervor of this psalmist and help us to tell of Your righteous acts, of Your deeds of salvation all the day.
