Psalm 35, 36 - Day 397
Psalm 35, 36 - Day 397 (link to today's reading)
Scripture: Psalm 36:5-6
Commentary: This wonderful description of the manifold brightness of the divine nature is introduced in this psalm with singular abruptness. It is set side by side with a vivid picture of an evildoer, a man who mutters in his own heart his godlessness, and with obstinate determination plans and plots in forgetfulness of God. Without a word to break the violence of the transition, side by side with that picture, the Psalmist sets before us these thoughts of the character of God. He seems to feel that that character was the only relief in the contemplation of the miserable sights of which the earth is only too full. We should go mad when we think of man’s wickedness unless we could look up and see, with one quick turn of the eye, the heaven opened and the throned Love that sits up there gazing on all the chaos, and working to soothe sorrow, and to purify evil.
Application: Words cannot describe the exhilaration of being loved by God. Every cell within my body tingles as I sense the Holy Spirit revealing her love to me...
Prayer: Lord, who am I...
