Psalm 52:8

      But I am like an olive tree 
         flourishing in the house of God; 
         I trust in God’s unfailing love 
         for ever and ever. 

This is a song of contrasts. Doeg the Edomite reported to King Saul where David had fled from his presence when Saul attempted to kill him. Saul then had Doeg kill the priest and his family. (See 1 Samuel 21 and 22.)

Secure in himself, Doeg would soon face destruction. 

Secure in God, David would flourish in God’s presence.

We can wonder if Psalm 1 is also reflective of this episode. Refresh yourself with the first of this treasury of poems, praise, and prayers. Give attention again the bottom line in verse 6:

For the LORD watches over the way of the righteous,
but the way of the wicked leads to destruction.

It’s Monday, the head of the workweek. Which way will you go today? Which way will you follow day by day? 

Will you live under God’s smile, or with a personal sneer which will run headlong into problems far too big for you to handle?

I will walk the way of the forever flourishing.

Our Father, set my steps in the right direction. Give me delight in knowing your truth and wisdom. Bring your words to mind again and again that I may ponder them and apply them appropriately. I want to live a fruitful day and an effective week. Amen.

Daily D – Ezekiel 43:1-5

Ezekiel 43:1-5 He led me to the gate, the one that faces east, and I saw the glory of the God of Israel coming from the east. His voice sounded like the roar of a huge torrent, and the earth shone with his glory. The vision I saw was like the one I had seen when he came to destroy the city, and like the ones I had seen by the Chebar Canal. I fell facedown. The glory of the Lord entered the temple by way of the gate that faced east. Then the Spirit lifted me up and brought me to the inner court, and the glory of the Lord filled the temple.

Daily D – Ezekiel 37:3

Ezekiel 37:3 Then he said to me, “Son of man, can these bones live?” I replied, “Lord God, only you know.”

Daily D – Ezekiel 36:26-27

Ezekiel 36:26, 27 “I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you; I will remove your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh. I will place my Spirit within you and cause you to follow my statutes and carefully observe my ordinances.”

Daily D – Psalm 40:6-8

Psalm 40:6-8
You do not delight in sacrifice and offering;
you open my ears to listen.
You do not ask for a whole burnt offering or a sin offering. Then I said, “See, I have come;
in the scroll it is written about me.
I delight to do your will, my God,
and your instruction is deep within me.”

Daily D – Psalm 39:4-5

Psalm 39:4, 5
“LORD, make me aware of my end
and the number of my days
so that I will know how short-lived I am.
In fact, you have made my days just inches long,
and my life span is as nothing to you.
Yes, every human being stands as only a vapor.”
Selah
