Oh give thanks to the LORD; call upon his name; make known his deeds among the peoples! Sing to him, sing praises to him; tell of all his wondrous works! Glory in his holy name; let the hearts of those who seek the LORD rejoice! Seek the LORD and his strength; seek his presence continually! Remember the wondrous works that he has done, his miracles, and the judgments he uttered, Psalm 105:1-5 (ESV)
Call Upon Me
Will you call on me? How often will you call on me? Why will you call on me? What will you say to me as you call on me? What will be in your heart and on your mind? Yes, I will call on you. It is my hope and desire and plan to call on you continually throughout my day. Why is that? I want my heart and mind and life to be focused on you. I want to live in an intimate relationship with you. How would living in an intimate relationship with you be possible if we hardly ever talked? You have a very good point on which you and I are in complete agreement. So, what will you say to me? Nothing will be off limits. I will pour my heart out to you. I will ask you for what I want and need. I will give thanks and praise to you for kindness and mercy and love toward me. I will remember the wondrous things you have done for me. I will ask for your presence, and power, and strength to be with me so I will be able to go and do what you ask of me. What am I likely to ask of you? You will certainly ask me to tell others about you. You want others to come to know and love and follow and serve you. You want others to be able to turn away from their sin so that they can receive your forgiveness and cleansing. You want a multitude to be rescued from a life without you both in the here and now and forever. You want others to receive the gift of salvation and life forever in heaven that you have secured for them. You want others to come to live in an ongoing intimate relationship with you. Yes, I want all these things to be true. Yes, I will ask you to allow my life to be lived out in and through you. Yes, I will work powerfully in and through you. Yes, you will be my witness in the world, as you tell others about me. Yes, you will shine brightly for me as you bear fruit for my kingdom and bring glory to my name. All of this will be possible as you continually call upon me throughout your day. Thank you, Lord.
Lord, I will call upon your name. I will remember all your wondrous works. I will be filled with joy as I give thanks and praise to you for your kindness. I will proclaim your goodness far and wide. I will be filled with strength as I continually seek your presence. Amen
