Psalm 44

But for your sake we are killed every day; we are being slaughtered like sheep.
                                                                                                        (Psalm 44 and Romans 8)

God, I love how Your people know Your word – how it informs and frames their conversations, thoughts and lives. You, Who never change, are always the Rescuer, our Savior. No matter what the circumstances are, regardless of the choices we have or haven’t made, despite the murderous obsessions of the enemy, nothing separates us from Your unfailing love. You never set aside Your love in order to execute Your plan, Your judgment, Your answer. You, Who is always before, always transcendent, always omni-omni-omni, do not fail, reject or abandon Your own. May we comprehend the privilege of being slaves of the Only Wise and Eternal King, the pleasure of audacious obedience to the Only Worthy and Self-Sufficient One and the prodigious grace of Your calling the creation to be Your own – today. May we allow ourselves to have our minds blown in response to You and the contemplation of Your love.
