He gives his king great victories;
he shows unfailing love to his anointed,
to David and to his descendants forever.
Today's scripture is full of promises
such as God arms me with STRENGTH,
keeps my way SECURE,
He TRAINS my hands for battle,
SUSTAIN and PROVIDE a broad road.
"It is God who arms me with strength" in verse 1
is repeated again in verse 39.
"you armed me with strength for battle"
But what caught my eyes was verse 40.
"He gives king great victories;
he shows unfailing love to his anointed"
God's love is active. It says He "shows" his love.
I put a line under this verse and wrote
"He SHOWS unfailing love" on the margin.
I wondered to whom I can show this love to today.
Lately, it's been so hot.
When it gets really hot, I don't want to cook,
especially in front of the hot stove.
So, naturally we've been eating
a lot of cold noodles with raw vegetables.
It's been awhile since we had any soup or casserole.
But after reading this verse today,
I decided to put a little care into the dinner menu.
I cooked meat and made soy bean casserole.
I also steamed cabbage.
When my son came home from work,
he smelled dinner right away.
He noticed a lot of banchan which was more than our usual kimchee
and appreciated my cooking.
We were able to have a nice dinner together
just because I decided to "show" a little bit of love into the dinner menu.
I guess love has to be expressed after all.
