My husband and I recently attended a reunion for a ministry we served in for 15 years. To be in the presence of our friends after so many years apart was settling. I felt safe, welcomed, and inspired. The memories of how we served the Lord together and of all the wonderful works of His hands we witnessed, have bonded us for life. How badly we wanted to recreate the past and do it all over again. But of course, that is not possible. Instead, we are each on a new path, serving the Lord in new ways with new people as He leads us all forward.
David’s words in this psalm reveal the deep and intimate relationship David has with the Lord. And his words proclaiming his pleasure to be with God’s people, came alive for us this week.
See you tomorrow for Psalm 17
