My deepest gratitude to my friend, Jen, who continually proclaims Psalm 92: 1 – 2
1It is good to give thanks to the LORD,
to sing praises to your name, O Most High;
2 to declare your steadfast love in the morning,
and your faithfulness by night…
Because she has cheerily placed it in front of my face so many times (in emails, during Bible study, etc.), the words awoke in my heart and inspired me to listen. I decided to take it at face value. When the sun rises, shining on still-white fields, I remind myself and our daughters about the depth of God’s love for us. When the clock points to 8 p.m., I hug my little tucked-in girls and whisper into their ears, “God is so so faithful to you, isn’t He? He kept you through the day, and provided all of your needs…” I have discovered that the psalmist was right: there is a perfect time of day to reflect on certain attributes of God: I need to begin every day with a fresh assurance of His love for me, and I need to close my eyes each night with the peace and gratitude of His faithfulness to me. Doing so makes a profound impact on the moments in between.
It is a good, good thing to declare His love in the morning and His faithfulness every night.
