October in the Psalms: Appointed Love

I love praying Psalm 61:7 over my family. David prays this when writing about the king: “Appoint steadfast love and faithfulness to watch over him!” I underlined that in my Bible and focused on that word “appoint.” It’s such a great verb. I picture God sending out the order, preparing the official decree, and directing Love and Faithfulness to hover over our lives. What God appoints shall happen. Imagine going about the day in search of evidence of that God-appointed steadfast love and faithfulness. It’s operating even now.
