“Your statutes have been my songs in the house of my sojourning.”
As the exile sings songs of his home (Psalm 137:3), so the Christian, “a stranger on earth,” sings the songs of heaven, his true home (Psalm 39:12). In ancient times, laws were put in verse, to imprint them more on the memory of the people. So God’s laws are the believer’s songs.
Do you think of this life as being permanent? Are you hopes mainly about what you can get here? The American dream is very deceptive. It is fool’s gold that will not last. Put your hope in heaven, and look forward to the riches there, because they will not spoil or fade.
