I love the simplicity of Psalm 42:8: “By day the Lord directs his love, at night his song is with me—a prayer to the God of my life.”
It’s wonderful to think of God directing His love like a great orchestra conductor or like someone sending orders out to dispense love everywhere it’s needed. But I like best the image of a conductor directing a symphony of love over your life.
At this moment, the Lord directs His love toward you as you move about your day. And at night? You carry a song with you to the God of your whole life. Perhaps it’s the song the Lord has directed during the day–the one you’ve practiced all day long–that you now sing back to Him as you close your eyes in sleep.
Today, He directs His love.
