"thy gentleness hath made me great."

"thy gentleness hath made me great." 
 Psalm 18:35

The words are capable of being translated, "thy goodness hath made me great." 
David gratefully ascribed all his greatness not to his own goodness, but the goodness of God. 

"Thy providence," is another reading; and providence is nothing more than goodness in action. 
Goodness is the bud of which providence is the flower, or goodness is the seed of which providence is the harvest. 

Some render it, "thy help," which is but another word for providence; providence being the firm ally of the saints, aiding them in the service of their Lord. 
Or again, "thy humility hath made me great."
 "Thy condescension" may, perhaps, serve as a comprehensive reading, combining the ideas mentioned, including that of humility. 

It is God's making himself little which is the cause of our being made great. 
We are so little, that if God should manifest his greatness without condescension, we should be trampled under his feet; but God, who must stoop to view the skies, and bow to see what angels do, turns his eye yet lower, and looks to the lowly and contrite, and makes them great. 

There are yet other readings, as for instance, the Septuagint, which reads, "thy discipline"-thy fatherly correction-"hath made me great;" while the Chaldee paraphrase reads, "thy word hath increased me." 

Still the idea is the same.
 David ascribes all his own greatness to the condescending goodness of his Father in heaven. 
May this sentiment be echoed in our hearts this evening while we cast our crowns at Jesus' feet, and cry, "thy gentleness hath made me great. " 

How marvellous has been our experience of God's gentleness! How gentle have been his corrections! How gentle his forbearance! How gentle his teachings! How gentle his drawings! Meditate upon this theme, O believer. 

Let gratitude be awakened; let humility be deepened; let love be quickened ere thou fallest asleep to-night.

your prayers incense, 
and your breath praise." 
(Charles H Spurgeon)

 If you are NOT a believer in Jesus Christ,
 you can be accepted into his kingdom.
 I invite you to let him to make of you,
what He always wanted.

 "PRAYER" 
 Marvelous God Almighty,
 I come to you in the precious name of Jesus,
 who died for me to make me free of sin,
 I want Jesus to enter into my heart and make me free,
 I confess that He is the son of God.
 I ask to change my heart and to give me wisdom to understand 
your Holy Word full of promises of eternal value,
 not only to live on this earth,
 but to be expectant of my life in heaven.
 In the precious name of Jesus I ask.
Amen..

 “The true minister of Christ knows
that the true value of a sermon must lie,
 not in its fashion and manner,
 but in the truth which it contains.

PRAYER 
 Father, I ask You to bless my friends, 
relatives and those that I care deeply for, 
who are reading this right now.
 Show them a new revelation of Your love and power.
 Holy Spirit, I ask You to minister to their spirit at this very moment.
Where there is pain, give them Your peace and mercy..
 Where there is self-doubt, release a renewed confidence through Your grace.
Where there is need, I ask you to fulfill their needs.
 Bless their homes, families, finances, their goings and their comings.
 Amen.
