O God, my heart is steadfast;
I will sing and give praise, even with my glory.
Awake, lute and harp!
I will awaken the dawn.
I will praise You, O Lord, among the peoples,
And I will sing praises to You among the nations.
For Your mercy is great above the heavens,
And Your truth reaches to the clouds.
Be exalted, O God, above the heavens,
And Your glory above all the earth;
–Psalms 108:1-5 NKJV
The following words tumble out of this Psalm and ministered to me today —
“my heart is steadfast”
“I awaken the dawn”
“I sing praises”
“mercy is great above the heavens”
“truth reaches to the clouds”
I will awaken the dawn (that’s some seriously early rising) to sing praises of God’s mercy and truth . . . and my heart IS steadfast . . . no matter the turmoil of the day.
