November 6, 2021 – Psalms 51-55

A theme that David comes back to over and over is the steadfast love of God. In Psalm 52, he draws a contrast between the one who refuses to look to God and the one who rests securely in him: “See the man who would not make God his refuge, but trusted in the abundance of his riches and sought refuge in his own destruction! But I am like a green olive tree in the house of God. I trust in the steadfast love of God forever and ever” (52:7,8). God is just always there! His love never ceases. In fact, God's love is so steadfast and consistent, we sometimes have the tendency to take it for granted. How easily we can ignore God, who never ignores us, and who always is beside us. What a joy to run to him and always abide in his fellowship!


"Cast your burden on the Lord, and he will sustain you; he will never permit the righteous to be moved" (55:22).


When all thy mercies, O my God,

my rising soul surveys,

transported with the view, I’m lost

in wonder, love, and praise.


Through all eternity, to thee

a joyful song I’ll raise,

but, oh, eternity’s too short

to utter all thy praise! -- Joseph Addison (1712)
