God's Lovingkindness Is My Joy
The chapter that today’s verse of the day came from has given me a new joy to live by! Psalm 63:3 promises that God’s LOVINGKINDNESS is better than life.
I rely on people to help me do everything because I cannot do anything. I grew up where my primary caregiver – my mom – refused to help me if I did not do what she said. Now I constantly fear that I will not get what I need especially with all the pain caused by caregivers. This anxiety often turns into sadness.
Verse 7 guarantees that I will have joy in the shadow of God’s wing. This joy will come because God will help me. As verse 9 explains, God throws those who destroy me into the lower parts of the earth.
With God protecting me from my enemies, I can be sure that I get what I need. If I have what I need, I know that I will live, which is all I ever want.
In this way, God’s lovingkindness becomes better than life because it is the guarantor of life.
