49 Where now are your loving acts
from long ago, my Lord—
the same ones you promised to David
by your own faithfulness?
What I imagine God might say to this psalmist in response….
All around you dear one, all around you. My loving acts are evident in the air you breathe, the clothes you wear. The kindness of strangers, the new mercies you receive each morning in spite of the fact that you whine and whine and whine day and night, night and day.
50 Remember your servant’s abuse, my Lord!
Remember how I bear in my heart
all the insults of the nations,
51 the ones your enemies, Lord, use—
the ones they use to abuse
every step your anointed one takes.
52 Bless the Lord forever!
Amen and Amen! Psalm 89:46-52 CEB
I do remember. Do you remember me? Thus saith the Lord in my imagination…aren’t you glad I didn’t get the job? Nevertheless, it might be a helpful exercise to practice what you know about who God is and how he interacts with his creation by taking time to imagine how he might talk to you and your own thoughts.
