The Lord is great. He’s our great Saviour.

Learning From God's Word

“May all who seek you rejoice and be glad in you; may those who long for your saving help always say, ‘The Lord is great!’” (Psalm 70:4).

In times of trouble, we need to lift up our eye and look to the Lord. When we’re feeling low, this is exactly the thing that we cannot do. We need to be lifted up by the Lord. What we cannot do for ourselves, the Lord does for us. When the Lord lifts us up, we do not say, “I have pulled myself together.” We say, “The Lord is great.” What a great Saviour we have! Let us rejoice and be glad in him.
