His Great Love

How precious is Your steadfast love, O God! The children of mankind take refuge in the shadow of Your wings. They feast on the abundance of Your house, and You give them drink from the river of Your delights. For with You is the fountain of life; in Your light do we see light.” (Psalm 36:7-9 ESV)

I don’t use the word “precious” too often .   Having four daughters, the word brings back memories of stuffed baby dolls or tiny kittens.

The psalmist uses the word often.  His purpose is not to describe something as “cute” or “adorable”, but to illustrate its “high value or Read More

Tell It

“Then my tongue shall tell of Your righteousness and of Your praise all the day long.”
Psalm 35:28

“Okay God.  This is enough.  I’ve had it.  Ever time I turn around, someone else is coming after me.”

Blessing God in times of bounty, as well as brokenness is one of the boldest proclamations of praise.  Our humble appreciation is His highest adoration.  Our willingness to worship at all times sends ripples of His redemptive righteousness throughout a reeling world.

Our praise is continual and comprehensive.  In good times and bad, in times of rejoicing and times of regret, in valleys and on mountain tops, we bless His name.  He is always ready and responsive.

He Hears.  When we call, He answers. “I sought the Lord, and He answered me and delivered me from all my fears.” (Psalm 34:4)  The righteous have a Read More
