#143 - American Hero Spotlight feat. Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn (Ret.)

'At each and every sunrise you will hear my voice as I prepare my sacrifice of prayer to you. Every morning I lay out the pieces of my life on the altar and wait for your fire to fall upon my heart. I know that you, God, are never pleased with lawlessness, and evil ones will never be invited into your house. Boasters collapse, unable to survive your scrutiny, for your hatred of evildoers is clear. You will make an end of all those who lie. How you hate their hypocrisy and despise all who love violence! But I know that you will welcome me into your house, for I am covered by your covenant of mercy and love. So I come to your sanctuary with deepest awe to bow in worship and adore you.'

The title of this Psalm in the Passion Translation is the Song of the Clouded Dawn, and I just think that’s so beautiful because it shows that things were not always clear to King David. But he was committed to the discipline of loving and communing with the Lord - regardless of what he could see and regardless of his circumstances. It was in this time in the Presence of the Lord that David was strengthened, and that’s where he could see clearly that the Lord is never pleased with lawlessness, evil and hypocrisy. It’s in that place of communing with the Lord that he was reminded and could see clearly through the fog that the Lord’s covenant of mercy and love covered him
