Psalm 30:4-5, 47:6 NIV 2011
Sing the praises of the Lord, you his faithful people; praise his holy name. For his anger lasts only a moment, but his favor lasts a lifetime; weeping may stay for a night but rejoicing comes in the morning.
Sing praises to God, sing praises; sing praises to our King, sing praises.
David, the author of many Psalms was a man after God’s own heart. Acts 13:22b, “God testified concerning him: ‘I have found David son of Jesse, a man after my own heart…’” David knew God intimately. Though many of his Psalms were prayers during times of peril, he never ceased to praise God for all He had done in his past. This Psalm was offered when the temple was dedicated. Even though David made sinful choices in his life, God continued to use him mightily for his kingdom. He repented and returned to worship and praise God. God is our Morning Song.
The sounds of birds chirping this morning were joyful sounds of praise. Spending the weekend with a dear sister-in-Christ we’d spent Saturday catching up joyfully together. My feet hit the floor and I could only smile and praise God for the beautiful day dawning through the window. Off to church after a wonderful breakfast, we entered the service singing praise songs with the congregation. God was present as we worshipped. I meet God daily because He is my Morning Song.
How is God your morning song?
Joyfully singing praises together,
