Commentary by Dr. Drake Travis

God, you are good all the time.  Thank you and Amen.

103 – a crowning Psalm of Praise about our good God who is so very good in all that He does.  He forgives, heals, redeems, satisfies, is righteous, merciful, He cares, empathizes, He rules and is blessed in heaven, by angels, by all beings, by His works, and by David who, btw, wrote this in the later days of his life.  All we need in God and from our God is found in Him. This is a magnificent hallmark of a Psalm

104 – This Psalm about God’s beautiful work in making all of nature brings to mind a verse in “When I Survey the Wondrous Cross” – it reads “were the whole realm of nature of mine, that were a present far too small …” (too small to present to God when expressing gratitude for our great Salvation).  This Psalm makes one want to read this again while sitting on the edge of the Grand Canyon, or at base camp in Everest, or in Grand Teton Wyoming. …and to think that all God asks of us in return for His colossal deeds is our lives given back to Him in thanksgiving.  Nature is merely a work of His fingers – our Salvation is the work of His strong Arm.  It makes a grateful soul sit and be amazed, doesn’t it?
105 – Why do we sing to the Lord? Why call to Him, sing to Him, tell of Him, remember His works, glory in His Name?  Just pause and remember what He has done!  The litany of the chosen people brought from oblivion, called to God as a testimony to the world  – this Psalm does a regal march through 600-700 years of the Hebrews’ history from Abraham to Joshua. Each line, each deed, each meal, each person was blessed and protected by a God who does not fail.  We may fail Him, but He does not fail us.  This is our God and He’s worth pledging our lives and souls and families and eternity too. For He will continue to be good to us forever.  Hallelujah.
