Psalm 92 :4-15
I love those Psalms that begin with praise and singing. The writer of Psalm 92 does just that. “You make me glad” and “I sing for joy” – I believe that the Psalms that begin this way are gentle reminders from God to start each day praising God and singing that praise aloud.
The writer then reminds us not to worry about the evildoers, our enemies, and adversaries , for God will scatter and defeat them.
The best part of the Psalm, however, I find in verses 12-15. As we continue to grow (age) our faith should get stronger and our ability to share that faith should not diminish but continue to “bear fruit” into old age. I think of our own Fred Penney who, in his 90s, is always willing to share his faith, offer a prayer, recite a Bible verse, or the words to a hymn. He is who we all should be looking toward. I pray that I follow his example.
Gracious God may I begin each day praising You with song and sharing all You have taught me with those around me. Amen.
