“I remember your name in the night, O Lord, and keep your law.”
It’s not surprising that many vile things occur a night. Maybe it’s a practical issue because light makes things easier to see. It could also be that we all are made in God’s image and we want our shameful acts hidden. Either way, the Psalmist is reminding himself, in a prayer-like way, that he will remember the Lord and His ways even at night.
This is a great sign of spiritual vitality. Waking up with our mind on the Lord. Or even placing our thoughts on the Lord and obeying Him even when we can’t sleep. Some things to meditate on in the middle of the night, if you’re awake, would be:
-The greatness of the divine Being
-The perfections of his nature
-His wonderful works of creation, providence, and grace
-His word and ordinances, by which He was made known to us
