Psalm 113 – Praise the Lord for Mothers
Today is Mothers’ Day. The gift of motherhood is one of the greatest God can give to a woman, and the gift of a mother is one of the greatest gifts God has given to children. The love of a mother for her child is rivaled only by the love of God for His creation.
I chose this Psalm for this Sunday because of verse 9. It is a Psalm of praise, and the Lord is to be praised for the blessing of motherhood. But in verse 9, this Psalm says that He blesses even the childless woman “as a happy mother of children.” It doesn’t get much better than that.
To all the mothers reading this, I pray you have a wonderful Mothers’ Day!
1 Praise the LORD.
Praise the LORD, you his servants;
praise the name of the LORD.
2 Let the name of the LORD be praised,
both now and forevermore.
3 From the rising of the sun to the place where it sets,
the name of the LORD is to be praised.
4 The LORD is exalted over all the nations,
his glory above the heavens.
5 Who is like the LORD our God,
the One who sits enthroned on high,
6 who stoops down to look
on the heavens and the earth?
7 He raises the poor from the dust
and lifts the needy from the ash heap;
8 he seats them with princes,
with the princes of his people.
9 He settles the childless woman in her home
as a happy mother of children.
Praise the LORD.
Happy mother’s day sweet mom! 🙂
