Glory to Our Covenant-Keeping God (Ps. 115:9-18)

In contrast to the worthless idols that fill the land, the Psalmist declares that God alone is in the heavens. He is the only God worthy of all our praise, our adoration, our fear, and our trust. But what assurance do we have that this Sovereign God – ruling and reigning in the heavens, doing all that he pleases – will bless and protect us? The answer is given in this very psalm: “The Lord has remembered us” (Ps. 115:12). What pleases this Sovereign God of all creation is for himself to be glorified in all the earth by the display of his magnanimous grace and love toward a sinful and rebellious people, called out of darkness into his marvelous light (1 Pet. 2:9)! In this sermon, Mitch Bedzyk directs our gaze to the steadfast love and faithfulness of our covenant-keeping God in order that we might trust him fully and glorify him alone.
