Psa. 108:0 A Song. A Psalm of David.
1 My heart is steadfast, O God, my heart is steadfast;
I will sing and make melody.
Awake, my soul!
2 Awake, O harp and lyre!
I will awake the dawn.
3 I will give thanks to you, O LORD, among the peoples,
and I will sing praises to you among the nations.
4 For your steadfast love is higher than the heavens,
and your faithfulness reaches to the clouds.
Psa. 108:5 Be exalted, O God, above the heavens,
and let your glory be over all the earth.
6 Give victory with your right hand, and answer me,
so that those whom you love may be rescued.
David was constantly confronted with difficulties. He spent a lot of his time fighting with enemies and living life on the run and yet, he trusted in God. He prayed to the Lord, spending time in worship, writing songs and experiencing a love that reached as high as the heavens. He believed that God would be exalted in all that was accomplished. David didn’t just pray for survival, but he prayed for victory. This was his trust in the Lord!
In the last week it seems as if there has been continual news of those who have gone on to be with the Lord. That realization makes one stop and think about the importance and value of living in the day. Today is a day in which to live and trust in the Lord. David’s heart was steadfast — he trusted in God. He chose to sing and make music to the Lord — even though there were enemies surrounding him. He was willing to pray for victory.
May we trust in God today for the victory.
May we live today in the peace of Christ.
May we live in the day and thank God for all of his glorious works!
Lord, we praise and glorify you today. Amen.
