Psalm 42:8 "By day the LORD directs his love, at night his song is with me—a prayer to the God of my life". What a great way to sum up a 24 hour period!So what distracts us from having that experience each day and each night?
v9-11 "Why have you forgotten me? Why must I go about mourning,oppressed by the enemy?"...."my foes taunt me, saying to me all day long,"Where is your God?"...."Why are you downcast, O my soul? Why so disturbed within me?
David provides the insight. We doubt that God is present with us - always,and we listen to those whose allegiance is with the one with the job description to "kill, steal and destroy"
Remember the children's song.....
"Oh be careful little ears what you hear, Oh be careful little ears what you hear, For the Father up above is looking down in love, Oh be careful little ears what you hear! Now 'sing 'till your heart's content'
You are the apple of God's eye (and that's close)and you are worth dying for.
