150 Days of Psalms - Psalm 5
I used to sing this song back in the 90s. haha. That sounds so long ago now. It's a beautiful setting of this morning prayer.
v. 3 "At daybreak, Lord, You hear my voice;
at daybreak I plead my case to You
and watch expectantly."
David began his day telling God his concerns and worries for the day. Probably a lot of us do that. But I really like the end of that verse where he says, "and watch expectantly." Do you watch expectantly to see how God is going to answer your cries?
A wonderful truth is seen in verses 4-7
David states that God doesn't delight in the wicked and that the boastful cannot stand in His presence but then there is this beautiful truth. We can enter into His presence because of His love (and the sacrifice of Jesus)
"I enter Your house by the abundance of Your faithful love;
I bow down toward Your holy temple"
It reminded me of the words in the song "Offering" by Paul Baloche
