“On Our Lips” (Psalm 42: 8, NEB) by Carley Evans


“The Lord makes His unfailing love shine forth alike by day and night; His praise on my lips is a prayer to the God of my life.”

God’s love never fails; it shines on us, and from within us, both day and night — twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week, fifty-two weeks a year. God’s love is permanent. His love does not waver, fade, dilly-dally, pout, wander, hurt. His love is pure.

Our praise of Him is our prayer, acceptable to God even as we fail Him. Gratitude is our response. We are grateful for our lives, for His gifts, for His guidance, for our salvation, for His love.

When all else fails us, we know He does not. He is always present, always loving-kind. Open our lips: let us praise the Lord our God.
