“But I will sing of Your power; Yes, I will sing aloud of Your mercy in the morning; For You have been my defense And refuge in the day of my trouble. To You, O my Strength, I will sing praises; For God is my defense, My God of mercy”. Ps 59:16-17
Some things are infadic! Joshua’s proclaimation in Joshua 24:15 (“But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord .”), is very infadic! He challenges the people to take a hard look at those around him–family, friends, culture and even ancestry–THEN CHOOSE-WHO THEY WOULD SERVE. Joshua infadically choose to serve God for himself and his household!
The Psalmist, here in Psalm 59 says, “as for me, I will sing of Your power; Yes, I will sing aloud of Your mercy in the morning;” Also, notice that this verse is preceded by a “but”. Reading the verse in context reveals that the chapter, as a whole is pretty bleak. It seemed the Nation of Israel had sinned beyond the point of no return, yet one man, the Psalm writer-the intorcessor that was lacked for in verse 16, infadically says, BUT I . . .
I will look beyond the gloom of what surronds me. I will look past what others say or do. I will choose to worship God and sing to God because of His power and mercy that’s renewed each morning and because he had seen God at work before–defending him and being a hiding place for him.
What do you say? Who will you worship-your circumstances or the bigness of God?
Think about it.
