Psalm 139:23-24

June 15, 2019

Search me, O God, and know my heart! Try me and know my thoughts! And see if there be any grievous way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting!

Lord, it is a continuation of the refining process, of working out my salvation, of becoming Your Ambassador of Reconciliation, posted to the Kingdom of Man. To lead me in the way everlasting is to lead me along that narrow path that wends through the Kingdom of God, tasting and sampling the pleasures of Your presence every step of the way. A foretaste of the joy to come as You bring your Kingdom into full awareness.

Psalm 139:19-22

June 14, 2019

Oh that You would slay the wicked, O God! O men of blood, depart from me! They speak against You with malicious intent; Your enemies take Your name in vain! Do I not hate those who hate You, O LORD? And do I not loathe those who rise up against You? I hate them with complete hatred; I count them my enemies.

Lord, I am in Your hands, I know that You will protect me from the attempts of the Evil One to discourage me, fill me with fear, trust in my own knowledge and strength, tempt me with the lures of this world; any way to take my eyes off You and to stray from the Way of Righteousness. Train my conscience to be an alert sentinel against the wiles of those who loathe You.

Psalm 139:17-18

June 13, 2019

How precious to me are Your thoughts, O God! How vast is the sum of them! If I would count them, they are more than the sand. I awake, and I am still with You.

Yes, my Lord, Your thoughts sustain me and that comforts me today as I go to take this medical test. No, no, You never let go of me!

Psalm 139:13-16

June 12, 2019

For You formed my inward parts; You knitted me together in my mother's womb. I praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are Your works; my soul knows it very well. My frame was not hidden from You, when I was being made in secret, intricately woven in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed substance; in Your book were written, every one of them, the days that were formed for me, when as yet there was none of them.

Lord, sometimes it is difficult to remember that I am the work of Your hands. Especially at those times when I face an upcoming physical test. But, Lord, I must not forget that Your workmanship is perfect but it has been sullied by my sin. Walk with me each time I face another session with a doctor. Do not let me forget that I am fearfully and wonderfully made.

Praise You, my Lord and my Master.

Psalm 139:7-12

June 11, 2019

Psalm 139:7-12

Where shall I go from Your Spirit? Or where shall I flee from Your presence? If I ascend to heaven, You are there! If I make my bed in Sheol, You are there! If I take the wings of the morning and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea, even there Your hand shall lead me, and Your right hand shall hold me. If I say, "Surely the darkness shall cover me, and the light about me be night," even the darkness is not dark to You; the night is bright as the day, for darkness is as light with You.

Lord, I spent my days fleeing from Your presence, hiding from You, denying Your name, determined to be my own god. But You pursued me, sent the Hound of Heaven after me, brought me into Your Kingdom, transformed me from a life of darkness into a life bright with Your glorious light.

Praise You, my Lord and my Master.

Psalm 139:1-6

June 10, 2019

Monday, 10 June 2019

Psalm 139:1-6

To the choirmaster. A Psalm of David. O LORD, You have searched me and known me! You know when I sit down and when I rise up; You discern my thoughts from afar. You search out my path and my lying down and are acquainted with all my ways. Even before a word is on my tongue, behold, O LORD, You know it altogether. You hem me in, behind and before, and lay Your hand upon me. Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; it is high; I cannot attain it.

Here I am Lord, completely enveloped in Your love and Your presence. There is nothing hidden from You; it used to be frightening, now it is comforting to know that I am secure in the palm of Your hand. But still beyond my understanding and comprehension, I must accept as one of those ineffable mysteries and praise You for You love me so.

Psalm 119: 17, 24

June 9, 2019

Deal bountifully with your servant, that I may live and keep your word. Your testimonies are my delight; they are my counselors.

This living in the Kingdom is not easy; it is filled with many potholes called trials, distractions called temptations and the writhing of the old man in his death throes. But Your word and testimony are ever at hand to counsel and lead me through the quagmire; it spreads the beauty of life in the Kingdom as a prize within my grasp readily at hand as I learn to delight in Your Law. Praise You for You deal bountifully with Your servant

Psalms 49:5-6 

June 8, 2019

Why should I fear in times of trouble, when the iniquity of those who cheat me surrounds me,  who trust in their wealth and boast of the abundance of their riches?

It is so easy to get all bent out of shape when someone cheats or otherwise takes advantage of me, especially when someone returns an evil for a kindness that I have done for them. So easy for me to forget that I am called to display, in small measure, the kindness that my Lord Jesus showed to me on the cross. He died that I might live. I am called to minister a glass of cold water to someone who reviles me and my LORD.

Psalms 47:1-2 

June 7, 2019

To the choirmaster. A Psalm of the Sons of Korah. Clap your hands, all peoples! Shout to God with loud songs of joy! For the LORD, the Most High, is to be feared, a great king over all the earth.

Let's see here. I am to shout with loud songs of joy because I am to fear (terrified) of the LORD, the Most High. That makes absolutely no sense at all. Let's try this. I am to shout with loud songs of joy because I am filled with the awesomeness of His being. Indeed, my God is an Awesome God.

Psalms 46:1-2 

June 6, 2019

To the choirmaster. Of the Sons of Korah. According to Alamoth. A Song. God is our refuge and strength; a very present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear though the earth gives way, though the mountains be moved into the heart of the sea,

The Fear of the LORD, God, the Almighty leads to a complete banishment of fear (fright) of everything else. As I grow in my understanding of the awesomeness of the LORD, I also grow in my understanding of the security that is given to me as a child of God. Even if the Green Mountain chain, beginning to rise a mile or so to the west of where I am sitting, were to be cast into the Atlantic Ocean suddenly, 50 miles or so to the east, I HAVE NOTHING TO FEAR. HE IS IN CONTROL OF ALL THINGS.

Psalms 40:1-3

June 5, 2019

To the choirmaster. A Psalm of David. I waited patiently for the LORD; he inclined to me and heard my cry. He drew me up from the pit of destruction, out of the miry bog, and set my feet upon a rock, making my steps secure. He put a new song in my mouth, a song of praise to our God. Many will see and fear and put their trust in the LORD.

Is there anything more potent than a transformed life? A life lived in joy and filled with the praise of the LORD, God, the Almighty? Others will see, and that will lead to lives lived out in the Fear of the LORD.

Psalms 36:1 

June 4, 2019

To the choirmaster. Of David, the servant of the LORD. Transgression speaks to the wicked deep in his heart; there is no fear of God before his eyes.

David realized that transgression numbs the soul; So often, a little white lie leads to flagrant disregard for the Word of the LORD. It cannot be otherwise, for I am a sinful creature, carrying the burden of the sin of Adam and Eve. The Fear of the LORD, God the Almighty cannot exist in an environment of sin.
