Psalm 63 – God’s Faithful Love
My lips will glorify you because your faithful love is better than life. (Psalms 63:3 )
So often our joy ebbs and flows in proportion to how well our circumstances are. If things are going well we are filled with joy and the moment things take a turn for the worse our joy slips away just as easy as it came. Now what if I told you you could always be joyful? You can have joy whether circumstances are great or weather you face the most horrific situations. So how does that happen?
You need to put your hope in something steady. You need to tie your joy to an immovable rock. You need to put your joy in God. One of the defining characteristics that God displays to his people is faithful love. It’s a love that never shifts. It’s a love that never fails. His love for you doesn’t change based on your performance. And it definitely doesn’t change based on your circumstances. The psalmist new that he could glorify God always because God shows faithful love. It’s a love so great that the best life has to offer is nothing compared to the joy of resting in his love.
