Psalm 57:8-11 (JDV)
Psalm 57:8 Wake up, my throat! Wake up, harp and lyre! I will wake up the dawn.
Psalm 57:9 I will praise you, Lord, among the peoples; I will sing praises to you among the nations.
Psalm 57:10 For your covenant faithfulness is as high as the sky; your faithfulness reaches the clouds.
Psalm 57:11 God, be exalted above the sky; let your glory be over the whole land.
These are the words of someone with a great burden, which he brought to the Lord, and now he has emerged from his depression and fear with a new zeal to worship God. Normally, the dawn was his alarm clock. It wakes him up, but now he cannot wait for the day’s new light so that he can tell the world about his wonderful Savior. He has become the world’s alarm clock.
Lord, fill us with a burning desire to wake up the dawn with your praise.
