… I will sing of Your strength,
in the morning I will sing of Your love;
for You are my fortress,
my refuge in times of trouble.
You are my strength, I sing praise to You;
You, God, are my fortress,
my God on whom I can rely.
– Psalm 59:16-17 (NIV)
I will sing of Your strength,
in the morning I will sing of Your love …
Is this my attitude towards God
during those first moments of my day,
or do I get up feeling sad or sullen,
dejected, anxious or angry even?
In those first moments of our day
it is good to stop looking inwardly
and to remind ourselves
that the Lord our God is with us, right by our side,
and that with Him there all will be well;
our burdens lighter;
our worries less overwhelming.
In those first moments of the day
call out to the Lord
and just focus on Him who is your fortress, your refuge and your strength,
and sing praise to the One on whom you know you can rely
and who will lovingly carry you through another day.
REPETITIVE PRAYER FOR TODAY…
Jesus, You are my strength, my fortress, my God on whom I can rely,
and I sing praise to You.
