4 One generation shall commend your works to another,
and shall declare your mighty acts.
5On the glorious splendor of your majesty,
and on your wondrous works, I will meditate.
6They shall speak of the might of your awesome deeds,
and I will declare your greatness.
7They shall pour forth the fame of your abundant goodness
and shall sing aloud of your righteousness.
2) v. 5 God’s greatness is worth meditation. Meditating on God is a fruitful work. Discovering the greatness of God is for those who really mean to find Him. It is for those who will meditate, think, read, study, compare Scripture with Scripture, pray for illumination and help. And those who work in such a way will never be disappointed. God does not invite us on a fool’s errand. He will reveal Himself to those who search, find and meditate. The reward itself is incentive enough to go on the quest. And, getting to know God is not a matter of visions, revelations, dreams and voices. So often people’s desire for the knowledge of God is just a desire for a spectacular appearance. To know God is, in the words of the Puritan, “to think the thoughts of God after Him”. Coming to God results in godliness in thinking and behaviour.
3) v. 6 God’s greatness will be declared by those who make inroads in their search to know God better. A quest to know God is the greatest quest of all. There can be no more rewarding work and when those who have embarked on the quest find nuggets of treasure that thrill the soul they will not keep quiet. It is a legitimate question to ask if the reason why Christians do not witness more than they do is because they have not sought God out diligently and therefore have not found Him and therefore have no thrilled heart that desires to pass on the knowledge of God to others.
