By Day I Direct My Love
BY DAY I DIRECT MY LOVE; AT NIGHT MY SONG is with you—for I am the God of your life. Take heart, My child, knowing that I am in charge of everything in your life. During the day, I command My Love to bless you in countless ways! So be on the lookout for the many good things I place along your path. Ask My Spirit to open your eyes so that you can perceive and receive all these blessings. Do not be discouraged by the hard things you encounter, for this is part of living in a deeply fallen world.
Rejoice that My song is with you throughout the night as I lovingly watch over you. If you are wakeful, use this time to seek My Face and enjoy My peaceful Presence. A tender intimacy with Me can develop when you remember Me on your bed—meditating on Me in the night watches. Whether you are waking or sleeping, I am always present with you. For I am indeed the God of your life!
By day the LORD directs his love, at night his song is with me—a prayer to the God of my life.
Be self-controlled and alert. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. Resist him, standing firm in the faith, because you know that your brothers throughout the world are undergoing the same kind of sufferings.
[1 Peter 5:8–9]
When I remember You on my bed, I meditate on You in the night watches. Because You have been my help, therefore in the shadow of Your wings I will rejoice. My soul follows close behind You; Your right hand upholds me.
