I will awake the dawn…

Psalm 57: 7 My heart is steadfast, O God, my heart is steadfast. I will sing and make melody. 8 Awake, my soul! Awake, O harp and lyre! I will awake the dawn. 

The psalmist declares to God “my heart is steadfast”. His heart doesn’t move. It isn’t shaken. It doesn’t fall out of faith in times of adversity. Having read through the psalms several times I’m inclined to believe it. I only wish this were true of me.

And then there is a lovely image of worship, particularly “I will awake the dawn”. You can imagine someone spending the night in worship and prayer singing praises to God as the sun comes up.

Lord give me a heart to seek you, to worship you, to draw near to you. Amen.
