Psa. 90:14 – Satisfy us in the morning with Your lovingkindness that we may give a ringing shout and rejoice all our days.
If Psalm 90:14 is a prayer, then God has surely answered our prayer! I’ve been meeting with a couple of my Christian brothers from Christians on Campus a few times a week just to pray and touch the Lord in the morning. We usually start by seeing how each one is doing. “Hey, how are you today?” Even that is refreshing. Then we each say a little prayer to open our hearts to the Lord. In a nutshell, it’s like saying, “Good morning God, we’re here.”
Then we start reading a few verses and we mingle our reading with prayer, repeating the words in the verses and saying, “Amen”. That makes it like a fun breakfast where we’re passing the delicious dishes back and forth between us. One brother starts, then the others reply, “Amen!” Then another might declare a word or two from the verse, and the others support him. It’s like speaking to one another the words of each verse! And then we might interject, “Wow, thank you Lord!”, or “Jesus, we praise you for __”. I feel like we’re really experiencing Ephesians 5:19 and Colossians 3:16.
Speaking to one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and psalming with your heart to the Lord, – Eph 5:19
Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom, teaching and admonishing one another with psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to God. – Col 3:16
Sometimes we go for 15 minutes and sometimes for 20 minutes. I really thank God for giving me that time with the brothers, just to take Him in. God has been faithful and satisfying every time. In closing this short testimony, the verse from Lamentations comes to mind:
It is Jehovah’s lovingkindness that we are not consumed, for His compassions do not fail; they are new every morning; great is Your faithfulness. – Lam. 3:22-23.
