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!

Psalm 113

 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.
