One of the greatest gifts God has given us is the collection of poetic works and songs known as “Psalms,” originally written as music for worship, especially in the Temple in Jerusalem.
Today we celebrate them as prayers for the most part, and they give us a beautiful picture of who God is.
Psalm 1:6 says, “For the Lord watches over the way of the righteous, but the way of the wicked leads to destruction.”
Traditional authorship is assigned mostly to King David, who loved to worship God with music and even dancing. His heart was open to God, and this inner life could be seen by anyone; this earthly king worshipped the King of kings.
In this introductory psalm, we read about the contrast between those who love God and those who don’t. And we are encouraged to “meditate” on His Word every day.
Our God is the great God, and loves each of us more than we can even imagine.
That love is a song in your heart.
Lord, your love for us is eternal and we are so blessed to receive it, as David did, all the days of our lives. Amen.
