Where is the Cranky Old Man?

New Day, November 10, 2014

“I will sing of the steadfast love of the LORD, forever; with my mouth I will make known you faithfulness to all generation. For I said, ‘steadfast love will be built up forever; in the heavens you will establish your faithfulness.’” Psalm 89:1-2 ESV

Early this morning the moon is waning in the clear, southwestern sky and thin clouds herald the reminder of God’s unfailing, steadfast love. Who could ever think God is like a cranky old man lurking around up there, trying to catch us in our sin?

I envision psalmist, pastor Ethan with clapping hands as he leads the heavens and us to sing: God’s loyal, steadfast, faithful, unfailing love (hesed) has many manifestations in creation (it’s plural). Consistent with His nature, He constantly acts in “great love” (NIV), and this steadfast love of the Father is firmly, forever established in the heavens each night and new day sunrise if we will just look and linger for a while. The cranky old man never lived there or anywhere, anyhow, anyway.

Our Father, who is in heaven, how we love Your reminders in the sky!
