Renewed Each Day

The Lord said to my Lord, “Sit at the place of honor at my right hand until I humble your enemies, making them a footstool under your feet.” The Lord will extend your powerful kingdom from Jerusalem; you will rule over your enemies. When you go to war, your people will serve you willingly. You are arrayed in holy garments, and your strength will be renewed each day like the morning dew. The Lord has taken an oath and will not break his vow: “You are a priest forever in the order of Melchizedek.” The Lord stands at your right hand to protect you. He will strike down many kings when his anger erupts. He will punish the nations and fill their lands with corpses; he will shatter heads over the whole earth. But he himself will be refreshed from brooks along the way. He will be victorious. Psalm 110 NLT

There is much in Psalm 110 that I feel does not apply to me. However, the words “your strength will be renewed each day like the morning dew” really resonates with me. How many mornings do I wake up wanting more sleep, feeling exhausted rather than refreshed, and dreading the day? 

Perhaps you are better at awakening with a brighter spirit. Either way, I think all of us would like to be refreshed each new day. Shall we make that our prayer for tomorrow and each day afterwards?

God, renew my strength each day like the morning dew. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
