“For You, Lord, have made me glad through Your work; I will triumph in the works of Your hands” (Psalm 92:4).

The works of God reflect who He is.  When we triumph in His works, we declare His lovingkindness and faithfulness.  From beginning to end God is loving, kind and faithful; and from morning to evening it is good to declare it as so.  Declare God’s lovingkindness and faithfulness and you will be found to declare every good thing He has established and to triumph in it.  Nevermind when you and I have been loving, kind and faithful or done anything good, on this it is good to be mute; but regarding God, it is good to declare.  It is good to declare in the morning.  It is good in the evening.  It is good every hour in between.  It is good because it is the language of triumph!

The triumph has to do with God’s great works.  May nothing but the works of God’s hands elicit from us such declarations, and may no small nuisance or large trial expropriate what triumph is yours and mine.  We may triumph that God has planted us in Him to flourish, and  through the works of His hands, we shall.  We may triumph that when we grow old we shall still bear fruit, be fresh and flourish, for God's work is so.  We may triumph over instability, for the hand of God has made us like a palm tree that weathers hurricanes.  We may triumph over timidity and weariness, for God has made us like the majestic and durable cedars of Lebanon.  His lovingkindness and faithfulness establish what we cannot.  His works are all the reason we need to give thanks and sing praises to His name and declare His lovingkindness and faithfulness all the day long.  It is so good!
