Read: HEBREWS 1:1-12
I’ve experienced many difficulties in life—illness; injury, surgery, and rehab; unemployment and professional rejection; the tragic deaths of friends and family. But even when I was lost and desperate during a four-year period of unemployment, I felt God’s love. Even when I felt prickly and bitter and asked hard questions of God, he never withdrew his love. I have questioned many things, but never the presence and love of God.
Psalm 117 is the shortest psalm in the Bible. It proclaims God’s steadfast love and enduring faithfulness. As we begin a new year, take a few moments to look back at 2020. Where do you see signs of God’s faithfulness in your life and in our world? Then, look back at your whole lifetime. Where have you seen the glow of God’s love? How did it bring light to darkness?
Lord, we praise you. We adore you. How good you are to us in every age and situation! May our praise endure as long as your love. AMEN.
