Psalm 15

1 O Lord, who may abide in Your tent?

Who may dwell on Your holy hill?

2 He who walks with integrity, and works righteousness, And speaks truth in his heart.

How can one read the Bible & refuse to see?

For the Lord is showing me that similar inquires, similar thoughts have been brought before all!

So those who continue to be legalistic with the Bible, are those who are REFUSING the Holy Spirit!

Who keep choosing the pleasure of now, the easy way!

I had forgotten about Legalists! Having found those who at least on the surface, saw! Beyond, to the Spirit behind the words!

“I think that’s what this is, i need to verify it with my Pastor…”

Has me flabbergasted!

When did the Holy Spirit only become viable from/through the Pastor?

When did i begin to hear such things & not immediately become upset?

Because He is showing me how many times He comes to each & every one of us.

Same as He did with me.

I could tell that the person knew their argument (debate side) was weak!

For i could sense (see) it!

Yet this person never spoke it, will not admit it, even to themselves…

Later, quietly on their own, like i have done countless times!

Introspection!

The Lord shows me…

How can anyone leave a question unresolved? 🙂

(Wow! A reason to be thankful for..how many times i tortured myself…

💡!

I am not afraid to question?

To ask?

To explore?

To NOT know, to acknowledge i do not know…

Why are so many afraid of that?

Why do they choose to explore evil? Rather, things not of Him?

Legalists do not explore!

Do not seek! Do not thirst.

Standing in water, yet die from dehydration.

Commiting suicide, surrounded by the Bread of Life!

Depressed when He is Joy!

Phillip 25, DOL 1

3 He does not slander with his tongue,

https://www.blueletterbible.org/Comm/guzik_david/StudyGuide2017-Psa/Psa-15.cfm
Speaks the truth in his heart; he who does not backbite with his tongue:
David here understood that an upright and righteous life is known by the way someone speaks. As Jesus said in Matthew 12:34: Out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks.
i. “I think more damage has been done to the church and its work by gossip, criticism, and slander than by any other single sin. So I say, don’t do it. Bite your tongue before you criticize another Christian.” (Boice)
Nor does evil to his neighbor, Nor takes up a reproach against his friend;

4 In whose eyes a reprobate is despised, But who honors those who fear the Lord; He swears to his own hurt and does not change;

5 He does not put out his money at interest, Nor does he take a bribe against the innocent. He who does these things will never be shaken.

Prayer for Victory over Enemies

Psalm 20

1 May the Lord answer you in the day of trouble! May the name of the God of Jacob set you securely on high!

2 May He send you help from the sanctuary And support you from Zion!

3 May He remember all your meal offerings And find your burnt offering acceptable! Selah.

4 May He grant you your heart’s desire And fulfill all your counsel!

5 We will sing for joy over your victory, And in the name of our God we will set up our banners.

May the Lord fulfill all your petitions

6 Now I know that the Lord saves His anointed; He will answer him from His holy heaven With the saving strength of His right hand.

7 Some boast in chariots and some in horses, But we will boast in the name of the Lord, our God.

8 They have bowed down and fallen, But we have risen and stood upright.

9 Save, O Lord; May the King answer us in the day we call.

The Lord a Refuge and Defense

Psalm 11

1 In the Lord I take refuge;

How can you say to my soul, “Flee as a bird to your mountain;

2 For, behold, the wicked bend the bow, They make ready their arrow upon the string To shoot in darkness at the upright in heart.

3 If the foundations are destroyed,

What can the righteous do?”

4 The Lord is in His holy temple; the Lord’s throne is in heaven;

His eyes behold, His eyelids test the sons of men.

5 The Lord tests the righteous and the wicked, And the one who loves violence His soul hates.

6 Upon the wicked He will rain snares; Fire and brimstone and burning wind will be the portion of their cup.

7 For the Lord is righteous, He loves righteousness;

The upright will behold His face.

May putting/reading more verses bless you more has it has been for me! 😄 In Yeshua’s holy name, I pray. Amen.

Along with my daily reading of the Bible, Psalm 3 and Psalm 4 have been added daily too.

Since I have begun this additional daily regiment, my chronic pain has decreased, I am no longer thinking such negative, depressing thoughts (I wm chipper again) AND!

My prayers seem to die or fall into a void, in certain places (like Seattle (& Tacoma (for those who have kept up! 😁)…

Now?! I have had things on my to do list I wanted to check out, etc (like United healthcare (combines Medicare & Medicaid) (& get this!…<drumroll please> it pays $2 thou on dental! I have been praying hard on a way to get my root canal & crown paid for! & ! 😁) When I walked into the day shelter, who had a table in the corner? United Healthcare!)

A without doubt Elohim did this! 😘

Thank You Love! 😍)

I knew an increase was/is needed!

How and where, I did not know.

I remember blogging, What More Do I Need to Do?!

Me entirely frustrated, at the end of my rope!

When the Lord answers?

😭🤩

<tears>

Joyful tears

The ones that spill

When someone has done something so wonderful! 😁

So amazing, so loving…so thoughtful…

<sigh>😙 (A Waiting to Exhale Moment, one you didn’t even know you had!)

<tears>

When Elohim answers prayers in your heart, you didn’t even know you had?

😭🤩😘

Tis why I love You like I do! 😁

I scream it from mountain tops!

I never felt love like this before! 😁

And I am ever so grateful to experience You like this before I get married…

Before I experience such from a human…😊

(I was reminded often of dude with the Lions? 😄 How his prayers was not answered for like 6 months?

DANIEL! 😁

Because the Angel sent by Elohim was delayed by the demon of the area? To the point where Michael, the Archangel, needed to be involved?

Well, I have often wondered, what would have helped the Angel?…

I believe the addition of Psalm 3 &4…

Helped…! 😁 Hallelujah!

May the same happen for you! In Yeshua’s holy name, amen! 😁🙋🏾‍♀️

Psalm 9 

A Psalm of Thanksgiving for God’s Justice.

For the choir director; on Muth-labben. A Psalm of David.

1 I will give thanks to the Lord with all my heart; I will tell of all Your wonders.

2 I will be glad and exult in You;

I will sing praise to Your name, O Most High.

3 When my enemies turn back,

They stumble and perish before You.

4 For You have maintained my just cause; You have sat on the throne judging righteously.
5 You have rebuked the nations, You have destroyed the wicked; You have blotted out their name forever and ever.

6 The enemy has come to an end in perpetual ruins, And You have uprooted the cities; The very memory of them has perished.

7 But the Lord abides forever;He has established His throne for judgment,

He has established His throne for judgment,

8 And He will judge the world in righteousness; He will execute judgment for the peoples with equity.9 The Lord also will be a stronghold for the oppressed, A stronghold in times of trouble;10 And those who know Your name will put their trust in You, For You, O Lord, have not forsaken those who seek You.

11 Sing praises to the Lord, who dwells in Zion; Declare among the peoples His deeds.

12 For He who requires blood remembers them; He does not forget the cry of the afflicted.13 Be gracious to me, O Lord;See my affliction from those who hate me, You who lift me up from the gates of death,14 That I may tell of all Your praises,That in the gates of the daughter of Zion I may rejoice in Your salvation.15 The nations have sunk down in the pit which they have made; In the net which they hid, their own foot has been caught.

16 The Lord has made Himself known; He has executed judgment.In the work of his own hands the wicked is snared. Higgaion Selah.

17 The wicked will return to Sheol, Even all the nations who forget God.

18 For the needy will not always be forgotten, Nor the hope of the afflicted perish forever.19 Arise, O Lord, do not let man prevail; Let the nations be judged before You.20 Put them in fear, O Lord;Let the nations know that they are but men. Selah.

The Reign of the Lord’s Anointed

Psalm 2

1 Why are the nations in an uproar
And the peoples devising a vain thing?

2 The kings of the earth take their stand And the rulers take counsel together Against the Lord and against His Anointed, saying,

3 “Let us tear their fetters apart

And cast away their cords from us!”

4 He who sits in the heavens laughs,

The Lord scoffs at them.

5 Then He will speak to them in His anger And terrify them in His fury, saying,
6 “But as for Me, I have installed My King Upon Zion, My holy mountain.”

7 “I will surely tell of the decree of the Lord: He said to Me, ‘You are My Son, Today I have begotten You.

8 ‘Ask of Me, and I will surely give the nations as Your inheritance,

And the very ends of the earth as Your possession.

9 ‘You shall break them with a rod of iron,

You shall shatter them like earthenware.’”

Now therefore, O kings, show discernment;

10 Take warning, O judges of the earth.

11 Worship the Lord with reverence

And rejoice with trembling.

12 Do homage to the Son, that He not become angry, and you perish in the way,

For His wrath may soon be kindled.

How blessed are all who take refuge in Him!

Prayer for Help in Trouble

Psalm 13

1 How long, O Lord? Will You forget me forever? How long will You hide Your face from me?

2 How long shall I take counsel in my soul, Having sorrow in my heart all the day?

How long will my enemy be exalted over me?

3 Consider and answer me, O Lord my God; Enlighten my eyes, or I will sleep the sleep of death,

4 And my enemy will say, “I have overcome him,” And my adversaries will rejoice when I am shaken.

5 But I have trusted in Your lovingkindness;

My heart shall rejoice in Your salvation.

6 I will sing to the Lord,

Because He has dealt bountifully with me.

What Does It Mean To Lose One’s Soul?

How does it feel?

What does it look like?

Better yet, how does it feel to NOT lose one’s soul?

What does THAT look like? 🤩

Answering the second one, is much easier for me! Hallelujah!

For saving is a process, just like being unsaved, was or is!

A perpetual machine has been made (is at work as we communicate) to steal (kill & destroy) your soul!

What IS your soul?

As I was taught, per disciple training, via Min Doris/New Life Covenant Chicago (Central Campus, whatz up! 😁)…

The soul is composed of 3 parts:

The Mind,

The Body

AND the Spirit!

Many believe the Spirit & the Soul are one & the same!

I believe the Soul is where the 3 combine…

What science today calls our subconscious. (The Id would be man’s attempt at labelling (controlling) more of the unknown).

The discussion of the Id borders on one’s Nature, as in one’s spirit…

I do not like where such discussions go, where all such discussions go without Elohim.

The World/Society (Atheistic Science/business/everything) does it’s best to CONVINCE humanity that it is naturally evil (ie: https://hbr.org/2019/07/why-people-get-away-with-being-rude-at-work?ab=hero-main-text)

I am here to REMIND you!….

That the MAJORITY of the world (this planet/humanity) will CHOOSE evil/wickedness,

THERE ARE THOSE WHO NEVER WILL!

There are those who will learn to NOT choose evil/wickedness!

Those who will learn NOT to harden their hearts,

Those who will choose the CONSEQUENCES of keeping their hearts open, to right-use-ness, to Love, to compassion, to mercy, to Yeshua/Holy Spirit/Elohim!

A very tall, cool glass of water, to those who thirst! Hallelujah!

For Seeds looking to sprout! Searching to produce the fruits of the Holy Spirit!

A Reminder, ya’ll!

As I too seperate myself/shown evil/wickedness I knew not of! An environment I was raised in!

May the Holy Spirit show you such things, with His Love, Mercy & Grace!

It feels like death!

Like watching yourself be numb,

Unable to stop it!

To believe that it is ok! That it is better, INSTEAD OF knowing!

In your heart, in your soul, it is the right thing to do!

Where one’s heart sings!

That is the Holy Spirit’s reward to you for CHOOSING right-use-ness/Him! 😄

My Ways Are Not Your Ways

Lean Not On Your Understanding

For I Have Chosen Thee.

So I ask why hast Thou not chosen them?

Those closest to me? My loved ones?

Is this how You feel for each one of us?

Will I get any rest tonight? (currently 4:23a been awake since 2:15… graveyard shift, eh? What is the name of the shift from 1 or 2a – 9 or 10am? Is there such a thing?)

For this eating of one”s soul, watching my loved ones harden themselves…

I do trust You Lord!

What I see may not be permanent (for life), yet it is so very painful to watch!

To see,

To have words

Not understood,

To have them fail me

For…

I did not hear once too

I heard

And did Not respond

Until it was all my spirit COULD hear!

For Thou were yelling! (Thunder & Lighting spoke to me)

Now I learn how love speaks,

As the devoid tries to copy Thee. 😁

Failing miserably, hallelujah! 😁

No weapon formed against me shall prosper!

Ty Lord for saving me!

From the daily machine, that slowly but surely, kills the soul.

I prefer the pain of a righteous death, one chosen, in the Way.

In the Truth, the Way & the LIFE!

(small things, like verse abnormalities, are not so small…

Indicators of lack of desire to be better…

In how one responds to such a transgression…

The How & the Why are more important than the What.

For what you see & hear change before what you do!

Only Elohim sees such.

It is ok to cry for them

It is another to change another

Or to change oneself!

For neither can we/I do.

Just pray…

Just praise…

And more shall be added unto thee.

In Yeshua’s holy name I pray, Amen!

🙏🏽
