The Beginning – Day 17

Bible text(s)

3From the east to the west

praise the name of the LORD!

4The LORD rules over all nations;

his glory is above the heavens.

5There is no one like the LORD our God.

He lives in the heights above,

6but he bends down

to see the heavens and the earth.

7He raises the poor from the dust;

he lifts the needy from their misery

8and makes them companions of princes,

the princes of his people.

9He honours the childless wife in her home;

he makes her happy by giving her children.

Praise the LORD!

Psalms 113:3-9GNBOpen in Bible reader

We begin the year declaring the truth that God created the heavens and earth and proclaiming that the earth is the Lord’s and everything in it.
