By day the Lord commands his steadfast love, and at night his song is with me, a prayer to the God of my life.Psalm 42:8
It is interesting that this scripture would pop two days before the sermon I am working on for Sunday. It must be a God thing.
The psalmist tells us God was speaking and singing to him, and these words and songs reveal God’s steadfast love. So the psalmist put pen/quill to paper/parchment/papyrus and wrote what the Holy One inspired him to write. We now call that the word of God.
So let me ask you a few questions to ponder.
First – Was YaHWeH speaking and singing directly and audibly to the psalmist, or was was it through his Spirit imprinting the words upon the psalmist’s heart and soul?
Second – Did God fall silent when John penned the very last words of his Revelation?
Lastly – If we answer no to the previous question, then how does “42” speak now? And if he speaks (and sings), who is supposed to deliver what the Triune God of Grace is saying?
