Call Him good, my soul, and praise the Eternal.
I am here to declare my affection for You, Eternal One, my God.
You are indeed great—
You who are wrapped in glory and dressed in greatness.
I read this psalm during the week and this verse just kept in my head.
“I am here to declare my affection for You”.
Isn’t that the reason for all I do? Isn’t that the purpose of my being and doing? The job for which I exist? I exist to declare how great God is but more to declare that I am not only in awe of Him; that I do not only stand in fear of His holiness but that I have a deep abiding affection for Him.
I am thrilled by Him. I am fascinated by Him. I am intoxicated by Him. He fills every sense. He answers every need. He is God and He loves me. Amazed? I am constantly and I have to respond with an out-pouring of love that this jumble of words only vaguely expresses.
34 May the thoughts of my mind be pleasing to Him,
for the Eternal has become my happiness.
I try in this blog to share what I feel God saying to me, what He is teaching me and where He is leading me. This verse sums it up. I pray you feel that too.
He has become my happiness.
