From Psalm 5:
In the morning, O LORD, you hear my voice;
in the morning I lay my requests before you
and wait in expectation.
But I, by your great mercy,
will come into your house;
in reverence will I bow down
toward your holy temple.
But let all who take refuge in you be glad;
let them ever sing for joy.
Spread your protection over them,
that those who love your name may rejoice in you.
For surely, O LORD, you bless the righteous;
you surround them with your favor as with a shield.
David was one who was grateful that God had provided him with a nation that was free. He could pray to his God in the morning, and come into the His house and worship Him. I feel grateful myself this morning, for it was good to be in church at Dogwood yesterday morning with other souls that feel the same. I hope all that receive this were able to take advantage of our freedom. If you were not able to be in church, there is still a promise in this little Psalm for you. Don't overlook the statement: "...in the morning, O Lord, you will hear my voice;" God deserves our praise, for He is good!
May Christ's blessings be with you this Monday morning, and please never forget that you are loved!!!
