Give Thanks for God’s Name

Ps07401Trinity Presbyterian Church is giving thanks on Thursday at 10:00 a.m.

“Joy in God’s great reversals, His ‘putting down one and lifting up another’ (7), is a note which this Psalm shares especially with the Magnificat and the Song of Hannah.” (Derek Kidner, Psalms 73-150, p. 270).

“God is at hand to answer and do wonders — adore we then the present Deity. We sing not of a hidden God, who sleeps and leaves the church to her fate, but of one who ever in our darkest days is most near, a very present help in trouble. ‘Near is his name.’ Baal is on a journey, but Jehovah dwells in his church. Glory be unto the Lord, whose perpetual deeds of grace and majesty are the sure tokens of his being with us always, even unto the ends of the world.” (Charles Spurgeon, The Treasury of David, on Psalm 75:1).
