In response to this wonderful promise of God, the worshipers declare that they shall praise God forevermore.
17 The dead do not praise the Lord,nor do any who go down into silence.
18 But we will bless the Lordfrom this time forth and forevermore.
Praise the Lord!
From this time forth and forevermore, the people of Israel shall praise the LORD.
When you die, you stop praising God. But while you live, you should praise God for His promises to you. If you are in Christ, you live forever. Therefore, you should praise God from this time forth and forevermore.
Do you hear people ask in times of trouble, “Where is your God?” Like the psalm, ask God to glorify Himself by His steadfast love in Christ. Declare that God does what He pleases. Assert that all other gods are powerless before a powerful, sovereign God. Stop trusting in idols or false forms of God. Live by the promises of God in His Word. The power is in the promise. The key to a victorious life is living by the promises of God’s Word. Then praise the LORD from this time forth and forevermore.
