May 30, 2023 - Psalms 108-112

David declares, “My heart is steadfast, O God! I will sing and make melody with all my being!” (108:1). Over and over again, in the Psalms, we read about God’s steadfast love; in fact, right here: “For your steadfast love is great above the heavens; your faithfulness reaches to the clouds” (108:4). But David wants us to know, also, that his heart, his love, his loyalty toward God is steadfast. In this world, with all its ups and downs and its constant change, steadfastness can sometime be hard to find. But if found anywhere, surely it will be found with us who have been steadfastly loved by so great a love. In the New Testament, Jesus tells us, “the one who endures to the end will be saved” (Matt. 24:13). Paul encourages us to run the race faithfully to the end as he did: “I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith” (2 Timothy 4:7). The writer of Hebrews urges us, “Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for he who promised is faithful” (Hebrews 10:23).

To be steadfast, unwavering, constant in our love toward God! How can we do or be otherwise toward the one whose love toward us is steadfast? How can we do otherwise than, with David, sing and make melody with all our beings?

O God, my heart is fully bent

To magnify thy Name;

My tongue with cheerful songs of praise

Shall celebrate thy fame.

Because thy mercy’s boundless height

The highest heav’n transcends,

And far beyond th’ aspiring clouds

Thy faithful truth extends. –Tate and Brady (1754)
