Scripture: Psalm (NIV) 57:7 My heart, O God is steadfast, my heart is steadfast; I will sing and make music.
8 Awake, my soul! Awake, harp and lyre! I will awaken the dawn.
9 I will praise you, Lord, among the nations; I will sing of you among the peoples.
10 For great is your love, reaching to the heavens; your faithfulness reaches to the skies.
11 Be exalted, O God, above the heavens; let your glory be over all the earth.
Observation: David was hiding from King Saul who was trying to kill him. But David knew that praising God was the right thing to do. God’s love and faithfulness were steadfast and so was David’s heart!
Application: God has not been any less loving and faithful to me than He was to David. My commitment to be steadfast in praising him should be the same as David.
Prayer: I am still singing: Jesus, I’ll praise you forever! Jesus, I’ll praise you forever! No matter what the cost may be; I’ll praise you, Lord, eternally. My mind’s made up; I’ll praise you forever! (author unknown) Amen
