Because thy loving kindness is better than life, my lips shall praise thee. Thus will I bless thee while I live: I will lift up my hands in thy name. (Psalm 63:3&4)
"Thy loving kindness is better than life!" What a most powerful statement from the psalmist David to have recorded fully knowing that you and I would be reading the Scriptures as God's word today. Paramount to say the least, David wrote this Psalm while he was in the wilderness. He concluded that there is something better than our life; God's lovingkindness! Not only does David confirm that he experienced it's existence, but also affirms how to navigate to its origin; praise, blessing his great name and the lifting up of hands. Can you imagine that!
You and I only have one life to live.It is most valuable to say the least. This life of our's is being spent one day at a time. How quickly they add up to years and then a lifetime. However, along life's journey, a continual flow of living waters can be had. In Hebrew, the word lovingkindness means favor, merciful, pity, reproof on occasions or better put in one word Jesus!
Beloved we have a lot to thank Father God for at this Thanksgiving holiday; especially his lovingkindness. We pray a most blessed Thanksgiving to all this holiday season.
