Give Praise to Our God
"He subdued nations under us, peoples under our feet."
Psalm 47:3
"He chose our inheritance for us, the pride of Jacob, whom he loved. Selah"
Psalm 47:4

Verse 3: "He subdued nations under us, peoples under our feet.""

The key words in verse 2 were "awesome" and "great."

The key word in verse 3 is "subdued."

In Daniel 5 you have a graphic picture of God bringing down the kingdom of Babylon and replacing it with the kingdom of Persia. The hand comes and writes upon the wall "MENE, MENE, TEKEL, PARSIN" - you are weighed in the balances and fund wanting. The text says in Daniel 6:1: "That very night Belshazzar, king of the Babylonians, was slain, and Darius the Mede took over the kingdom, at the age of sixty-two" (NIV).

Psalm 18:46: "The Lord lives! Praise be to my Rock! Exalted be God my Savior!" (NIV)

In 2 Chronicles 20 Jehoshaphat experienced the great victory from the Lord. During Hezekiah's reign there were 185,000 dead soldiers in the field. Pharaoh's armies in the Red Sea. You kind of get the idea that when God works, the job gets done.

Verse 4: "He chose our inheritance for us, the pride of Jacob, whom he loved. Selah"

The key words were "awesome" and "great" in verse 2, "subdued" in verse 3, and now in verse 4 the key word is "chose."

"He chose our inheritance for us, the pride of Jacob, whom he loved."

Matthew Henry said:"...God shall choose my inheritance for me. He knows what is good for me better than I do for myself..."

1 Peter 1:4: "to obtain an inheritance which is imperishable and undefiled and will not fade away, reserved in heaven for you" (NASB).

God is so good, God is so good, God is so good, He's so good to me!
Jesus is real, Jesus is real, Jesus is real, He's so real to me!
He saved my soul, He saved my soul, He saved my soul And He made me whole!
I praise His name, I praise His name, I praise His name, He's so good to me!

Jeremiah 29:11 (NIV)
