Today, in God’s Lavish Mercy, we pray with Psalm 149, next to the last psalm in the Psalter. I feel the Psalter’s compiler wanted to have a perfectly clear last few words: God really loves us!
“Delight” is such a vibrant word – to be lit up inside by tenderness and joy! Think of God, heart-warmed by us the way a sweet child delights her mother; the way a perfect rose enthralls its gardener.
For today’s prayer, we might choose to imitate the worshippers in our psalm, repeating God’s name in joy, allowing our spirits to dance in gratitude:
Let them praise God’s name in the festive dance,Psalm 149: 3-4
let them sing praise to God with timbrel and harp.
For the LORD loves this people,
and adorns the lowly with love’s mantle.
Prose: Crazy About You – Max Lucado
If God had a refrigerator, your picture would be on it.
If God had a wallet, your photo would be in it.
God sends you flowers every spring and a sunrise every morning.
Whenever you want to talk, God listens.
God can live anywhere in the universe, and chooses your heart.
Face it, friend.
God’s crazy about you.
