Episode 79 - A Lively Review of the Election Outcomes - Part 1


“I overflow with praise when I come before you, for the anointing of your presence satisfies me like nothing else. You are such a rich banquet of pleasure to my soul. I lie awake each night thinking of you and reflecting on how you help me like a father. I sing through the night under your splendor-shadow, offering up to you my songs of delight and joy! With passion I pursue and cling to you. Because I feel your grip on my life, I keep my soul close to your heart. Those who plot to destroy me shall descend into the darkness of hell. They will be consumed by their own evil and become nothing more than dust under our feet. These liars will be silenced forever! But with the anointing of a king I will dance and rejoice along with all his devoted lovers who trust in him.”

This passage shows what a life lived in the Presence of God looks like. David wrote this Psalm when he was in exile in the wilderness of Judea. And look how he kept his focus on the Lord rather than his circumstances. Look how he prioritized worshipping the Lord and enjoying the pleasure of the Presence of the Lord. He clung to the Lord and he was boldly  confident that the Lord would bring justice on his enemies. Because of that confidence in the Lord, he was able to celebrate alongside the lovers of God in the midst of extreme adversity. And I think that should speak very directly to us - that we should choose to celebrate alongside the lovers of God.
