All four of the morning prayer regulars were in attendance today, with the backdrop of the rain.
It was #57 on the roster. We have prayed through this Psalm a number of times now. It has become an old friend popping in, seeding a variety of prayers, a different crop from last time, like new plants from New Cheshire seed potatoes.
David thanked God that he had a steadfast heart. It struck me (ouch!) that wayward David had come to realise that God never let him stray too far. It was like he had planted his life firmly on rails, so even though he leaned left and right, his path remained firm. Wow, what a discovery! And this simply re-doubled his rejoicing, to have that God-given freedom and security at the same time! This is how God shares and manifests his faithfulness, by trusting the people of his church with his reputation… and proving HIS faithfulness through the project.
At 7.30 our eyes can be a little bleary, and some verses can come out a little blurred. We had a an absolute classic example at the beginning of the week, from #19.
“May the words of my wife, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer”
I have absolutely no comment to add to that…
