Knowing God - Psalm 92:2

to declare your steadfast love in the morning,
and your faithfulness by night
Psalm 92:2
 
I looked today for another first -- the first time love is mentioned in the Psalms. And what I immediately noticed was that "God's love" rarely appears in such an unadorned state. One hundred and twenty times, the Psalmists make sure that we remember that God's heart is filled with "steadfast love."
 
"Steadfast" means fixed in intensity and unwavering in purpose. Or in other words, God's love is intense, unwavering, and his sole purpose.
 
"Morning," "night," and "declare it" are the other key words in this passage.
 
Tonight is Christmas Eve. The angels used this occasion to proclaim God's steadfast love and faithfulness. In whatever contexts you find yourself in tonight, I encourage you to make proclaiming God's love your steadfast endeavor too.
 
And as Christmas Morn dawn, join again with the chorus of heaven, "Joy to the World, the Lord is come!"
 
In Christ's Love,
a guy who wishes you
the merriest, holiest
Christmas ever
