I will sing of the LORD’s great love forever; with my mouth I will make your faithfulness known through all generations. Psalm 89:1
There are many movies that show a man or woman who has just fallen deeply in love with someone. As they have fallen in love, they break out in song singing about that love. Then they start to tell everyone about that new-found love.
One classic movie that shows this is found in “My Fair Lady,” when Eliza sings the song “I Could Have Danced All Night.” She has fallen in love with Professor Higgins and sings late into the night, loudly, letting all the servants know what she is feeling. There is no shame or fear in her words.
Not everyone actually sings in public when they fall in love with someone, but in their hearts they are singing. Many will sing in private, but all will tell others about their new-found love.
The author of this psalm is singing about God’s love. He has discovered a love that passes all other loves. He has also learned of God’s great faithfulness and wants to tell everyone about it.
Every believer has learned of God’s love and faithfulness. It is those very things that draws a person to God.
In your own life you had to have experienced some of God’s love for you to have become a believers. Think about how great God’s love is for you. You deserved nothing but painful punishment and death, yet God forgave you and gave you abundant life.
Along with that love, you have learned of His faithfulness. God has met needs of yours. He has answered many of your prayers. He has never failed to be by your side and meet every need you have, not necessarily every wish, but the needs.
With these things in mind, you should be more than willing to break out in a love song to God. You should also be willing to tell others about His faithfulness and love. Do not be ashamed.
Think of a time when you were in love with someone. How did you act? What did you do?
In that same way act and do even more so for God. Sing and tell others about God today.
I pray today that you will know God’s great love for you; that you will see God’s faithfulness; that you will not be ashamed of God; and that you will tell the world about God.
