…EVEN IN OUR LOW ESTATE – Fri, Apr 05, 2019


Psalm 136:1,23-24 KJV

O give thanks unto the Lord; for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever.

[23] Who remembered us in our low estate: for his mercy endureth for ever:

[24] And hath redeemed us from our enemies: for his mercy endureth for ever.

I was doing some community service in Jamestown, Accra one afternoon when suddenly a group of young guys crowded one gentlemen. Immediately, I thought there was going to be chaos so I walked away as fast as I could.

But while a few meters away, what was supposed to be chaotic sounded like cheers and shouts of joy, a thing we call “giving of fans” in local parlance. I found out Stephen Appiah, former captain of the black stars, was the gentleman in their midst. They loved him for that, even in current higher status, he still remembered his folks and would come around time and again whenever he came into the country.

The Psalmist knew this about God, who remembered them in their low estate, and deserved nothing.

Thanks be to God that He doesn’t treat us based on our statuses, so that nobodies like you and I can also share in His estate. This is a great privilege, enough to merit your praise of Him today.

Have a blessed day. #TGIF
