“It is good to praise the LORD
and make music to your name, O Most High,
to proclaim your love in the morning
and your faithfulness at night”
The Psalms are full of wonderful and helpful insights. Here David shows us how to set up our days – every day.
The morning, before we begin our day, is the time to remind ourselves of God’s great love for us. This is His constant and saving love which undergirds the promise of Jesus to be with us always, through the Holy Spirit. Every moment of the day and in every situation and circumstance the Lord will be with us. And whether we get things right or whether we make mistakes, whether we end up with singing success or bruised and battered, His love will enfold us and never desert us. And it is His love that has given us the wonder of the created order with all its beauty and potential.
Then when evening comes it is the opportunity for us to acknowledge the faithfulness of God – for He will indeed have been with us no matter what has happened during our day. To Him we may come with our joy and thanks, our confession and pain. He will have been there, He will still be with us and He will stay with us during the night. And it is His faithfulness that ensures that the laws of His creation continue to operate as He intended.
His love is constant. His faithfulness unwavering. His presence eternal. This is our God.
Acknowledge and thank Him.
Lord God thank You so much for Your ever-present love and Your unflinching faithfulness. They make my day content. Amen.
