July 10, 2020 Daily Devotional:

Psalm 52 reminds me of the song Mary sings when she is pregnant with Jesus (Luke 1: 46-55). Two songs warning against earthly powers and reminding us that our trust is placed in God’s power – a power that is always on the side of love and justice. 

May this hymn, be a moment of meditation on the power that we must lay aside as we walk our journey of discipleship.

Tell out, my soul, the greatness of his might!

Powers and dominions lay their glory by

Proud hearts and stubborn wills are put to flight

The hungry fed, the humble lifted high!

Psalm 52

Hey, powerful person!

    Why do you brag about evil?

    God’s faithful love lasts all day long.

2 Your tongue devises destruction:

    it’s like a sharpened razor, causing deception.

3 You love evil more than good;

    you love lying more than speaking what is right. Selah

4 You love all destructive words;

    you love the deceiving tongue.

5 But God will take you down permanently;

    he will snatch you up,

    tear you out of your tent,

    and uproot you from the land of the living! Selah

6 The righteous will see and be in awe;

    they will laugh at those people:

7 “Look at them! They didn’t make God their refuge.

    Instead, they trusted in their own great wealth.

        They sought refuge in it—to their own destruction!”

8 But I am like a green olive tree in God’s house;

    I trust in God’s faithful love forever and always.

9 I will give thanks to you, God, forever,

    because you have acted.

In the presence of your faithful people,

    I will hope in your name because it’s so good.
