Daily D – Psalm 113:3
From the rising of the sun to its setting, let the name of the LORD be praised.
PSALM 113:3 (CSB)
Sunrise and sunset are closer together now. The sun dipped below the horizon last night at 7:21. As one who enjoys days filled with more sunlight than darkness, this made me a little sad. It is dark now a few minutes after six o’clock in the morning.
We can fill this day with praise to God and overflow into dusk and dark. If we begin with his attributes, his distinguishing characteristics, and finish with how we experience his goodness and grace, no amount of daylight will be enough.
When the sun goes down and the moon and stars illuminate the heavens above, we can sing songs in the night. Psalm 42:8 says,
The LORD will send his faithful love by day;
his song will be with me in the night—
a prayer to the God of my life.
Praise God all day. Pray yourself to sleep at night. That’s a pretty good day, don’t you think?
Start well with praise and thanksgiving. Ponder God’s goodness throughout the moments, the minutes, and the hours before you. Wrap it all up with thanksgiving and praise as you lie down and lay down your concerns and cares at bedtime.
How will you experience God today? Take notes along the way. Then you will always have something to say as you remember God’s goodness in this day.
I will live this day with praise and thanksgiving from sunup to sundown to peaceful slumber.
Our Father, open my eyes that I may see your goodness and grace today. I choose to live in awe and wonder, expressing your praise, thanking you for every good and perfect gift. Amen.

Deuteronomy 8:12-18 When you eat and are full, and build beautiful houses to live in, and your herds and flocks grow large, and your silver and gold multiply, and everything else you have increases, be careful that your heart doesn’t become proud and you forget the Lord your God who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the place of slavery. He led you through the great and terrible wilderness with its poisonous snakes and scorpions, a thirsty land where there was no water. He brought water out of the flint rock for you. He fed you in the wilderness with manna, which your ancestors had not known, in order to humble and test you, so that in the end he might cause you to prosper. You may say to yourself, ‘My power and my own ability have gained this wealth for me,’ but remember that the Lord your God gives you the power to gain wealth, in order to confirm his covenant he swore to your ancestors, as it is today.
Deuteronomy 6:4-9 “Listen, Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength. These words that I am giving you today are to be in your heart. Repeat them to your children. Talk about them when you sit in your house and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Bind them as a sign on your hand and let them be a symbol on your forehead. Write them on the doorposts of your house and on your city gates.“
Deuteronomy 1:2, 3 It is an eleven-day journey from Horeb to Kadesh-barnea by way of Mount Seir. In the fortieth year, in the eleventh month, on the first of the month, Moses told the Israelites everything the Lord had commanded him to say to them.
