Psalm 36:9  
For you are the fountain of life, the light by which we see. (NLT)

You’re a fountain of cascading light, and you open our eyes to light. (MSG)

Sources are important. This is true in academia. This is true in government. This is true in family history. This is true in faith. King David reminds us here of the source of every good and perfect gift. Our Father in heaven gives us the gifts of life and light. 

Today in worship, there is a good chance of singing about light and life. The images King David uses in this psalm, and so many others, ring true every day. God is the fountain of life, its ultimate and immediate source. He opens our eyes to see physically and metaphorically. 

Ponder God as the fountain of life. Consider his gift of light. One day is not enough to think all of these thoughts. Today is a good day, however, to enjoy thinking about these special gifts. 

The more we think about these things, the more we are prone to worship, to sing, to experience awe and wonder. This is especially good on days like today when we gather to express our love to God. This is especially good on days like tomorrow when we get to bear this life and light everywhere we go. 

I will immerse myself in the goodness of God’s gifts of life and light. 

Our Father, it is by your goodness and grace that we live and see. Empower us to really live and to truly see. Enhance our purpose and delight in living and seeing. Receive our grateful worship and ever-closer communion. Amen.

Daily D – 2 Kings 23:25

2 Kings 23:25 Before him there was no king like him who turned to the Lord with all his heart and with all his soul and with all his strength according to all the law of Moses, and no one like him arose after him.

Daily D – 2 Kings 20:1-6

2 Kings 20:1-6 In those days Hezekiah became terminally ill. The prophet Isaiah son of Amoz came and said to him, “This is what the Lord says: ‘Set your house in order, for you are about to die; you will not recover.’”

Then Hezekiah turned his face to the wall and prayed to the Lord, “Please, Lord, remember how I have walked before you faithfully and wholeheartedly and have done what pleases you.” And Hezekiah wept bitterly.

Isaiah had not yet gone out of the inner courtyard when the word of the Lord came to him: “Go back and tell Hezekiah, the leader of my people, ‘This is what the Lord God of your ancestor David says: I have heard your prayer; I have seen your tears. Look, I will heal you. On the third day from now you will go up to the Lord’s temple. I will add fifteen years to your life. I will rescue you and this city from the grasp of the king of Assyria. I will defend this city for my sake and for the sake of my servant David.’”

Daily D – 2 Kings 18:5-7

2 Kings 18:5-7 Hezekiah relied on the Lord God of Israel; not one of the kings of Judah was like him, either before him or after him. He remained faithful to the Lord and did not turn from following him but kept the commands the Lord had commanded Moses. The Lord was with him, and wherever he went he prospered. He rebelled against the king of Assyria and did not serve him.

Daily D – 2 Kings 17:12-15

2 Kings 17:12-15 They served idols, although the Lord had told them, “You must not do this.” Still, the Lord warned Israel and Judah through every prophet and every seer, saying, “Turn from your evil ways and keep my commands and statutes according to the whole law I commanded your ancestors and sent to you through my servants the prophets.” But they would not listen. Instead they became obstinate like their ancestors who did not believe the Lord their God. They rejected his statutes and his covenant he had made with their ancestors and the warnings he had given them. They followed worthless idols and became worthless themselves, following the surrounding nations the Lord had commanded them not to imitate.

Daily D – 2 Kings 13:4-6

2 Kings 13:4-6 Then Jehoahaz sought the Lord’s favor, and the Lord heard him, for he saw the oppression the king of Aram inflicted on Israel. Therefore, the Lord gave Israel a deliverer, and they escaped from the power of the Arameans. Then the people of Israel returned to their former way of life, but they didn’t turn away from the sins that the house of Jeroboam had caused Israel to commit. Jehoahaz continued them, and the Asherah pole also remained standing in Samaria.
