For You, Lord, have made me glad through Your work.

Psalm 92:4

I am fast approaching a new season; the “winter” of old age, but I am not there yet. Even though the years are galloping by, and sometimes I would like to slow them down, I have a joy that sustains me. Each day is a new day given to me by the Lord. With the psalmist, I can say, “It is good to praise the Lord . . . proclaiming your love in the morning and your faithfulness at night”! (Psalm 92:1–2).

Even though my life has its struggles and the pain and difficulties of others sometimes overwhelm me, God enables me to join the psalmist in “[singing] for joy at what [His] hands have done” (v 4). Joy for blessings given: family, friends, and satisfying work and free time. Joy because of God’s wondrous creation and His inspired Word. Joy because Jesus loved us so much He died for our sins. And joy because He gave us the Spirit, the source of true joy (Romans 15:13). Because of the Lord, believers in Him can “flourish like a palm tree . . . [and] still bear fruit in old age” (Psalm 92:12–14).

What fruit is that? No matter our circumstances or season of life, we can be examples of His love through the life we lead and the words we say. There is joy in knowing and living for the Lord and telling others about Him.


Psalm 92.


Dear Lord God, thank You for the joy of knowing, that You are always with me in every day. For the joy of knowing that every day is one more and one less before eternity with You. Thank You for the joy of knowing the Lord Jesus as my Saviour. Amen.
