Reading assignment: __Psalm 89:1-37
Focal verse(s): Psalm 89:1: “I will sing of the Lord’s great love forever; with my mouth I will make your faithfulness known through all generations.”
The composer of Psalm 89 was Ethan the Ezrahite, probably a singer from the tribe of Levi. This Psalm is concerned with the covenant God made with David, known simply as the Davidic Covenant. The first verse of this Psalm forms a well-known praise chorus: “I will sing of the mercies of the Lord forever; with my mouth will I make known thy faithfulness to all generations.” (Psalm 89:1, KJV). This verse sums up the entire Psalm: because God loves us so much we should sing of His mercies forever and make His faithfulness known to every living creature! The Psalmist reminded God that He had promised not to break His covenant with David even if the people failed to obey. That did not mean God would withhold punishment but simply that He would not desert His people. God’s grace is one of the exciting aspects of being a Christian because God promises us in John 10:28, “I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one can snatch them out of my hand.” He will never leave us once we are His! Spend some time thanking God for this marvelous promise
