Text: Deuteronomy 17-19; Psalm 45
This is my eighth year of writing these daily meditations as we read together through the Bible. Sometimes, the same verse speaks to me every time I read a particular day’s passages. This is one of them. Psalm 45 opens;
“My heart overflows with a pleasing theme.”
A “pleasing theme”, is one that is good and noble and pleasant, one that is beautiful, delightful, glad, joyful, precious, correct, and righteous. We all go through valleys and dark places, and our hearts so often grieve and cry out in pain. That said, the life song of our hearts ought always come back to that “pleasing theme” of joy in our God and King. The Lord puts that sort of song in our hearts, and it can and should overflow.
You know those songs that, when you hear them, you cannot get them out of your head? Imagine if your life had that impact on those around you. Imagine if the song of your heart was a sweet and contagious melody of praise for our Lord. As we walk with our Lord today, may He fill us to overflowing with a pleasing theme. Amen.
in Him, Mike
