You make the dawn and the sunset shout for joy

I have a little verse-a-day calendar next to my bed, which I remember to flip to a new verse about once every three days. It’s been on the same page for the last few days, but this time it was on purpose. I just loved the passage!

It’s from Psalm 65 (go read the whole thing, actually… it’s amazing!).

The calendar just uses verses 5-8:

By awesome deeds You answer us in righteousness, O God of our salvation,
You who are the trust of all the ends of the earth and of the farthest sea;
Who establishes the mountains by His strength,
Being girded with might;
Who stills the roaring of the seas,
The roaring of their waves,
And the tumult of the peoples.
They who dwell in the ends of the earth stand in awe of Your signs;
You make the dawn and the sunset shout for joy.

I love it! What worship!

dawnThe last verse reminded me of the classic worship song “Your Name,” so I was listening to it this morning and thought you may want to include it in your morning worship as well. It also references two other great verses about the power of God’s name:

Acts 4:12

Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to mankind by which we must be saved.

Proverbs 18:10

The name of the LORD is a strong tower; the righteous man runs into it and is safe.
