"How amazing are the deeds of the Lord..." One of His most amazing deeds is mentioned in verse 9, "He has paid a full ransom for his people."
We see the fulfillment of this psalm in Luke 1:67-70;
"Then his father, Zechariah, was filled with the Holy Spirit and gave this prophecy:
"Praise the Lord, the God of Israel, because he has visited his people and redeemed them.
He has sent us a mighty Savior from the royal line of his servant David, just as he promised through his holy prophets long ago."
Let the deeds of God inspire awe in your heart!
Lord, I thank you that I can ponder Your deeds and delight in You. Thank you for redeeming me from sin, forever!
