INTRODUCTION

Psalm 145 is aptly entitled A Psalm of Praise because this is a PERFECT DESCRIPTION of the main purpose of David in writing this Psalm. As I mentioned in our previous sermon, David uses this Psalm to EXTOL the many ATTRIBUTES and DESCRIPTIONS of God’s greatness.

If our worship is going to be VIBRANT, it is because we have a CLEAR VIEW of who our God is and what He has done for us.

Our worship of God’s greatness must then overflow into MAKING GOD KNOWN to the ends of the earth.

BODY SERMON

There are three major points to our study today:

3.Specific Attributes Worthy of Praise vv. 8 – 20

  • God’s Graciousness – v. 8

  • God’s Nearness and God’s answer – vv. 18 – 19

III.RESOLUTION of DAVID and COMMUNITY to PROCLAIM and
PRAISE God – v. 21

21 My mouth will speak the praise of the Lord, And all flesh will bless His holy name forever and ever.

David makes 5 promises in this Psalm:

1. Verse 1 – I will extol You
2. Verse 1 – I will bless Your name
3. Verse 2 – I will praise Your name forever and ever.

4. Verse 5 – On the glorious splendor of Your majesty and on

Your wonderful works, I will meditate.
5. Verse 6 – I will tell of Your greatness.

CONCLUSION

With the many facets of God’s GREATNESS, shouldn’t we like David
make the same 5 promises to God:

1. I will extol You

2. I will bless Your name

3. I will praise Your name forever and ever.

4. On the glorious splendor of Your majesty and on Your wonderful works, I will meditate.
