Psalms 13 How Long Lord…? How Long?

David laments about how long it’s taking to overcome their enemies. Enemies arise back-to-back. But the Children of Israel are only facing enemies’ generation after generation because they are not staying under the anointing of GOD. Acts of disobedience are opening the door to their enemies.

In verse 1 and 2, David ask, “How long…”, a total of 4 times. It’s interesting to note that Israel went into exile a total of 4 times; Babylon, Persia, Greece and with Rome.

Where else in the scriptures do we find similar language.... [Using one of the 7 Rules of Biblical Hermeneutics (Rule #6) known as ‘Ka-yoẓe bo mi-maḳom aḥer‘ (“Like that in another place”), i.e., the explanation of a Biblical passage according to another of similar content].

We see:

Exodus 16:28 “And the Lord said unto Moses, How long refuse ye to keep my commandments and my laws?”

Numbers 14:11 “And the Lord said unto Moses, How long will this people provoke me? and how long will it be ere they believe me, for all the signs which I have shewed among them?”

Numbers 14:27 How long shall I bear with this evil congregation, which murmur against me? I have heard the murmurings of the children of Israel, which they murmur against me.”

David recognizes and expresses two ways in which we can feel that GOD is not with us…

  1. Removal of His Presence; (1a) can cause us to feel forgotten.
  2. GOD Conceals His Face; (1b) can cause us to feel abandoned.

Yet, in the Book of Jeremiah we find GOD’s reply to apathy, idolatry, apostasy…

“Saying to a stock, Thou art my father; and to a stone, Thou hast brought me forth: for they have turned their back unto me, and not their face: but in the time of their trouble they will say, Arise, and save us.”

Sure, we can come up with our own strategies to save ourselves, and we have. But when will we trust GOD enough to abide with Him, without turning our backs, getting comfortable and complacent, without crossing over into apostasy, forgetfulness, apathy?

What causes us to drift back into the world and turn away, and get caught in the cycle of exile? Isn’t that one of the things that David wants us to figure out?

Lighten our eyes LORD, give us Your plan. We purpose to hear Your plan; we purpose in our hearts to listen and obey. We need Your counsel to keep us out of the snares of the enemy, we need to outwit them. It is imperative that we outwit them. If You do not give us the plan, or the instructions, to keep us from venturing into the traps, plots, plans or snares of our spiritual enemies, we will sleep the sleep of death (Jer. 51:9).

Enlighten us with torah… cause us to see beneath the verses… cause our eyes to open so that we understand the message… open our ears to hear… least our enemies prevail over us, over our children and over our futures…

This is why we can trust in Your Mercy…This is why we can rejoice in Your Salvation… This is why we can sing and find joy in the midst of pain and disappointment, or distress… because we don’t allow our feelings to rule over us… because our hearts are not seared, we can receive correction, we possess the humility to repent, because we know you are Faithful, More Faithful that we are… whether we can see Your Face, or feel Your Presence, we trust in You and on Your Name, and we already know that you will never leave us or forsake us…

Amen.

Praying the Psalms… OUTLOUD

Children’s names are dressed in Royal Apparel… The Purple Ink.

Come alongside us and pray for every name on this altar. Everything they need is just a prayer away! Ask The LORD to show you which people on this list you are assigned to pray for. I hope it’s every name, but if you are called to cover children…

My granddaughter asked about the people that you pass by, and you can look at them and see… knowing they need prayer, but you don’t know their names… how do we include them?

So, I made a reminder on the list for “The Unknown Name.” We are covering everybody, hidden in plain sight, everybody passing by anonymously, but we can see pain, hurt, devastation, secret pain… we’re binding every lying suicidal spirit, every spirit of sabotage, depression, we cast out vain imaginations… We are praying for you to have divine encounters, divine interventions, a Word from the LORD, that only you recognize must be coming from Him, because flesh and blood could not reveal it to you… Give your servants a Word for the lost, the broken, the lonely, the hurting… anoint my granddaughter to be one of your servants, to see behind the mask the people wear, to see the truth, to see beneath the surface, and be that servant, to give them a Word from the LORD, a Word that retrieves them from behind enemy lines.

Praying the Psalms…

With Just 7 Psalms a Day …. We heard the testimony and beheld with our own spirit, the blessing that came to others because many of us stood the watch, kept our consecration and we prayed in unity; one body, one heart, one mind, one spirit in January…

What Will February Bring in the Lives of Others When We All Stand The Watch This Month?

Let’s make it happen!

  • For those joining us from the many nations, you are welcome to send me an email with your top 3 names of those you are requesting prayer for. Send 1st Names Only (for their privacy).
  • No background history is needed. Just a 1st Name.
  • No need to tell us the situation or circumstance. Just a 1st Name.
  • Keep the rest of the names of those you are praying for in your personal prayer time with the Psalms. We are all agreeing with each other together and they will be covered by faith.
  • Assess the highest need for yourself and send those 1-3 names. Use the Comments button or RSVP.
  • We are speaking the Psalms OUTLOUDINTO THE ATMOSPHERE… We are taking them out of 1st person singular and speaking them in 3rd person plural – to cover others, to cover all those who are crying out to the LORD….
  • Together, with our voices in prayer, we are sending the Body of Christ help from the Sanctuary. Help is Coming! Amen. And All our prayers will be on time. Amen.
  • You don’t have to complete all 7 Psalms in the same sitting. You can split them up as you need to throughout the day. The only thing that matters is to get them done.
  • It does not matter what time. We are all in different places in different time zones. Speak the Psalms out loud in prayer as you are able.
  • Everyone is welcome to join us in the Fast if able. If you can’t that’s OK. It’s not time yet for you to fast. Many of us will be fasting, but if you are unable that is fine. Consider a fast that has nothing to do with food. If you haven’t done something healthy for yourself, like walking… take a 10-minute walk each day and speak the Psalms out loud… be creative. If you watch too much TV, fast the TV. If you are on Social Media too much and you know it.. fast Social Media…. sacrifice something that will cause you discomfort. It might just be a cup of coffee, but if it causes you to have to restrain yourself from doing it… I think it qualifies. Amen. Just keep your word to yourself and fast that particular thing. So in essence, this can also reveal to each of us, if we will even keep our word to ourselves. Amen.

Let your voice be heard at the Altar of Incense.

PRAY FROM A PLACE OF PASSION! PRAY FROM A PLACE OF LOVE!

Pray as if Your Life depended upon Your voice in Prayer!

Expect the phenomenal….

Amen.

Today, February 2nd we continue where we left off in January, with Psalm 132, The Psalm of Ascent. How perfect is that?

It’s time to ascend….

Amen.

Went back and placed children’s names in the Royal Apparel of Purple ink, Speak a special emphasis on their covering of protection, prophecy breakthrough, destiny, they shall be an answer in the earth, they shall bring forth solutions, the world is in need of your solutions, ideas, witty inventions, you are here to build and not tear down, to resolve a matter, you are negotiators, solution oriented, problem solvers, readers, investigators, seers, hearers, visionaries, creating new colors, lifting burdens, removing limitations, in Sync with the Spirit of God in the Earth. Amen.

My granddaughter asked about the people that you pass by, and you can look at them and see… knowing they need prayer, but you don’t know their names… how do we include them?

So, I made a reminder on the list for “The Unknown Name.” We are covering everybody, hidden in plain sight, everybody passing by anonymously, but we can see pain, hurt, devastation, secret pain… we’re binding every lying suicidal spirit, every spirit of sabotage, depression, we cast out vain imaginations… We are praying for you to have divine encounters, divine interventions, a Word from the LORD, that only you recognize must be coming from Him, because flesh and blood could not reveal it to you… Give your servants a Word for the lost, the broken, the lonely, the hurting… anoint my granddaughter to be one of your servants, to see behind the mask the people wear, to see the truth, to see beneath the surface, and be that servant, to give them a Word from the LORD, a Word that retrieves them from behind enemy lines. (Feb 5, 2023)

Pray for those who you do know, even those who never ask for prayer. Pray for those that support you and the things that give you purpose, and over the things that give them purpose. Surround them with prayer… before they even need it, Amen? (Feb 6, 2023)

DO YOU FEEL ME?

One day… we’re all going to find out that those tears rolled down because our spirit could feel GOD holding us when our souls were in distress.

At the very time we felt lost and all alone, abandoned, rejected, or just completely sad and heartbroken… the presence and the promise of GOD was right next to us, never leaving or forsaking us… GOD, by our side, filled with nothing but hope for us… with plans of good and not of evil, hoping we could feel His presence, that we would hold on, trust Him.

“Wherefore, when I came, was there no man? when I called, was there none to answer? Is my hand shortened at all, that it cannot redeem? or have I no power to deliver?”

The LORD says… ” I’m Still Elohim YHVH… The Creator & The Deliverer. I’m not changing and I’m not leaving, and I will come strong on your behalf… Do not be a stranger to me… Stand alongside me, Call on My Name… I am the GOD of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. I will come for just one… I will come for you. Just trust and believe….

Do You Feel Me?”

You’re Still Blessed!

LET LOVE REMAIN…

Love heals a multitude of sins, it’s true. But it will cost you everything to operate in love. Who will pay the price of love? Love will cost you your anger, you will have to die to self, you will have to elevate others, even when no one is elevating you, it will cost you time, and patience, you will have to set a watch over your mouth, one day you will have to be silent, another day you will have to speak, or the irresistible urge to be right, or the irresistible urge to prove another wrong, love weighs differently on different days, love is not equal to or greater than… love means praying for enemies, with as much heartfelt devotion as you will for those easy to love, love cost you acts of kindness to those who wouldn’t take the time to do anything nice at all for you, love cost you words of edification to others, who have nothing nice to say about you, love cost you devoted prayer for others, who may never say a word of prayer for you, love is unfair and full of favor, but I promise you, though it will cost you everything… love means you can’t keep any of the treasure you have inside… you have to spend it… you have to pour it out because love is sacred, and it has to be poured out into the world…or the world will continue in pain. Is there one thing that you can restore today by applying love? If you stripped everything else away from the conversation, would love remain?

Here’s what I do know… The Presence of GOD moves in an atmosphere of genuine, undivided, unprecedented, uncompromising, unconditional pure love.

If it has been a while since you have seen what love can do in your life… reset and start off today with the LORD’s Recommendation…

“Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.”

I’m constantly praying for breakthrough, blessing, and miracles for you, people I don’t even know, and for the ones that I do, because I GOD moves in an atmosphere of love.

Let’s pour more love in the atmosphere today (especially the kind of love that cost us the loss of pride, anger, bitterness, envy, strife, the kind that requires humility, dying to self, patience, time…) and stand back and watch miracles happen all around our lives and the lives of those around us.

Challenge: Pour out so much love today, that GOD has no choice but to fill you up again with a fresh anointing of love!

Love until you pass out from an overdose on love!

Amen.
