Psalm 42:8 NIVUK
By day the Lord directs his love,
    at night his song is with me –
    a prayer to the God of my life.

Here’s a cracking description. God’s love is not a passive thing, something that just radiates from him without thought or desire, but is a deliberate act on his part. When we experience God’s love, it’s because he has chosen to love us, he has deliberately directed it our way and so it means something. No wonder the Psalmist spends his night singing his prayerful song!

I could sing of your love forever…
