Daily D – Psalm 48:14
Psalm 48:14 “This God, our God forever and ever—he will always lead us.” (CSB)
Always and forever—how many songs through the years have used this declaration regarding the love of a man and a woman? How many singers who sang such words also sang breakup songs?
When God sings to those he loves, it is always and forever with an Always and Forever love. Any breakups are the responsibility of the man or woman who walks away from him.
God’s commitment to us has been demonstrated throughout history. So too has been human inability to live completely faithful lives.
Our Father in heaven will lead us forever and ever. He will always lead us. The only question is whether we will follow. This is a good question for a Monday. It is a good question every day.
Here in front of me, just below my computer screen, is an annual calendar. Each date that has passed so far this year has a circle around it or an X through it. The X indicates that I followed well that day. The circle indicates a day when I took a detour. Thankfully, there are many more dates with an X than otherwise.
Is today a circle or an X day? A big part of the outcome is determined by what we decide right now. Our Father in heaven is ready to lead the way. Are you ready to follow?
I will follow our Father in heaven wherever he leads me today.
Our Father, show me the way I should go, for to you I lift up my soul. Amen.

Genesis 26:26-31 Meanwhile, Abimelek had come to him from Gerar, with Ahuzzath his personal adviser and Phicol the commander of his forces. 27 Isaac asked them, “Why have you come to me, since you were hostile to me and sent me away?”
28 They answered, “We saw clearly that the LORD was with you; so we said, ‘There ought to be a sworn agreement between us’—between us and you. Let us make a treaty with you 29 that you will do us no harm, just as we did not harm you but always treated you well and sent you away peacefully. And now you are blessed by the LORD.”
30 Isaac then made a feast for them, and they ate and drank. 31 Early the next morning the men swore an oath to each other. Then Isaac sent them on their way, and they went away peacefully.
Genesis 22:13, 14 Abraham looked up and there in a thicket he saw a ram caught by its horns.

And to this day it is said, “On the mountain of the LORD it will be provided.
