Copyright 1981, 382 pages. From the Foreword, by Norman Vincent Peale:
How did King David compose the Psalms? An old legend has it that one mysterious night a wind came through a window, breathed on David's harp, and made the strings quiver with a haunting melody. The music wakened David, and the wonder of it inspired him to sing. For the rest of the night, until dawn broke in the east, David "wedded words to the strains" of the harp. And the words he sang are what we now know as the Psalms.
Psalms: songs of praise. Praise to God, celebrations of His power and love.
The book you hold in your hands can't be called a book of psalms, but we do believe it is a book full of praises. And though the stories in Daily Guideposts, 1982 were not composed to the strains of a harp, still they were created out of wonder and inspiration.
All of us, in our daily lives, encounter moments that renew our strength and inspire us to devotion, just as that midnight awakening did for David. The 365 devotionals within this book tell of times such as these in the lives of many members of our Guideposts family.
We offer them to you as daily reminders of God's lasting love. Through them we hope that you yourself will be drawn closer to Him.
