The first fifteen verses of this psalm are found in the song of David in 1 Chronicles 16:8-22 when the Ark of the Covenant was brought to Jerusalem. The Ark was the symbol of God’s redemptive presence to God’s people. David gathers into song, the promises that God made to Abraham, fulfilled in the Promised Land. We are the Lord’s cherished recipient of these same promises—even greater ones in Jesus.
You could compose a song about your personal history. Ask the Holy Spirit to have you feel the fingers of God’s love fashioning your own story of redemption. Epiphany light shines in your darkness powered by God’s grace.
As you read the promises that punctuate this psalm, how are they fulfilled personally in your own life?
