…Remember me, O my God, for good! Neh. 13:31
September 16th: READING & PRAYING PSALMS 84-90
How amiable are thy tabernacles, O Lordof hosts!
To truly be content and at peace, human beings find fulfillment in the presence of GOD.
2 My soul longeth, yea, even fainteth for the courts of the Lord: my heart and my flesh crieth out for the living God.
3 Yea, the sparrow hath found an house, and the swallow a nest for herself, where she may lay her young, even thine altars, O Lord of hosts, my King, and my God.
It’s human nature to return to the place where you have kept those things most precious to you. Where do you keep those things that are most precious to you? And those treasures that were born out of your relationship with GOD… Where do you go to find them? Where do you go to connect with GOD again? to be close to Him again? Where are the treasures that you nurtured in your relationship with GOD?
4 Blessed are they that dwell in thy house: they will be still praising thee. Selah.
5 Blessed is the man whose strength is in thee; in whose heart are the ways of them.
6 Who passing through the valley of Baca make it a well; the rain also filleth the pools.
The valley of Baca is the valley of thorns… There in that dry place you will dig deep until water is found! Until the anointing breaks forth! There is adversity on the path to find GOD. You will encounter it. Anticipate resistance. Overcome it, and your blessings will be cloaked by the rain… expect the abundance of rain…
7 They go from strength to strength, every one of them in Zion appeareth before God.
Adversity only makes you stronger… sharper, purer…better… You are well able to take the territory… each day you draw closer to GOD, closer to His image and likeness, each day you take on His character and nature, each day you embrace humility, kindness, compassion, each day that you do whatever good, that is in your power to do.
8 O Lord God of hosts, hear my prayer: give ear, O God of Jacob. Selah.
Look daily for the MESSIAH to appear in your life… in your circumstances… Invite the spirit of GOD into every hard place, dry place, or good place… expect His arrival daily… be consciously aware of His Presence. Orient yourself toward the presence of GOD daily… You will hone your expertise in these matters and reap bountiful spiritual rewards.
9 Behold, O God our shield, and look upon the face of thine anointed.
10 For a day in thy courts is better than a thousand. I had rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God, than to dwell in the tents of wickedness.
11 For the Lord God is a sun and shield: the Lord will give grace and glory: no good thing will he withhold from them that walk uprightly.
GOD will provide the Good, and Good will overtake you on the way that you go.
12 O Lord of hosts, blessed is the man that trusteth in thee.
May you live.. produce and reproduce life… life that contains the potential to produce more life.. May the seed that is in itself, produce seed after it’s own kind… Good seed.. that nourishes and lives to inspire others to create something, unique… something better than ever before…
Fruit is being gathered all the time, not just fruit here on earth, but spiritual fruit… Your fruit is being placed in baskets and being presented before the LORD. Fruit that is large, vivid, surreal and exquisitely perfect. Your spiritual fruit is being harvested, inspected for quality, character, nature and sound—ness. May GOD give you an understanding mind (a.k.a, a hearing heart) to hear and discern between the good and the evil (1 Kings 3:9).
I pray that you reap a bountiful harvest this season!
AMEN & Amen.
