It is very late. Nearly 1 a.m. I have a long day ahead of me and I should be sleeping. But in the quietness of the night is when I hear the Lord whisper to me. I need to hear Him because I’ve neglected Him lately. In my rushing about and worry of what lies ahead I have forgotten to call on Him. I may think that I am leaning on Him but in truth, I am not. And so, in the stillness of this hour I am seeking His voice.
Psalm 147: 1Praise the LORD.
How good it is to sing praises to our God,
how pleasant and fitting to praise him!
2 The LORD builds up Jerusalem;
he gathers the exiles of Israel.
3 He heals the brokenhearted
and binds up their wounds.
4 He determines the number of the stars
and calls them each by name.
5 Great is our Lord and mighty in power;
his understanding has no limit.
6 The LORD sustains the humble
but casts the wicked to the ground.
7 Sing to the LORD with thanksgiving;
make music to our God on the harp.
8 He covers the sky with clouds;
he supplies the earth with rain
and makes grass grow on the hills.
9 He provides food for the cattle
and for the young ravens when they call.
10 His pleasure is not in the strength of the horse,
nor his delight in the legs of a man;
11 the LORD delights in those who fear him,
who put their hope in his unfailing love.
Lord, help me to put my HOPE in your UNFAILING LOVE.
