I have to admit, I was kind of confused as I read through this chapter of the Bible. But, it really stands out in contrast to many of David’s previous Psalms because this happens to be a joyful love song. Which leads me to the question, what would you write if you were to compose a love song for Jesus today? What would you say?
Beautiful words stir my heart.
I will recite a lovely poem about the king,
for my tongue is like the pen of a skillful poet…Your throne, O God, endures forever and ever.
You rule with a scepter of justice.
You love justice and hate evil…
Any ideas? If you’re willing to share, I’d like to know what you’re love song for Jesus would sound like, so please share below. As you meditate upon His goodness and the eternal love He has for you, are you filled with joy to the point where you find yourself repeating with David “my cup is running over!” I am overflowing with love from the Father! What is your response? How can you tell others about this love and share it with others? After all, there is plenty to go around. Music, poems, and songs are a great way to express our love for Him! Besides, God is already singing for joy over you!
“For the LORD your God is living among you. He is a mighty Savior. He will take delight in you with gladness. With his love, he will calm all your fears. He will rejoice over you with joyful songs.” (Zephaniah 3:17)
