Psalm 57, Psalm of Thanksgiving

Narrative Lectionary Key Verse for Today

God will send forth his steadfast love and his faithfulness.
— Psalm 57:3

NL Daily Devotion for Thursday, July 11, 2019

by Stefanie K. Fauth, Clergy Stuff


I love this language - God will send forth love and faithfulness!

So often, the way we speak about God is as if you have to find God - one of my favorite cartoons mocks this. Two people are at the door of someone’s house asking if the owner has found Jesus yet - and Jesus can be seen hiding behind the curtain - as if it’s a cosmic game of hide and seek!

My Spiritual Director told me something I’ll never forget - God is there. God is already being part of your life. God will not interrupt you - you do have to welcome participation -but God is not far away.

God sends God’s love directly to us - we don’t have to look very far!

Loving God, you send yourself directly too us. Open our eyes and our hearts to receive your goodness. Amen.
