The Thirsting Soul Satisfied in Elohim

Psalm 63

1 O God, You are my God; I shall seek You earnestly;

My soul thirsts for You, my flesh yearns for You,

In a dry and weary land where there is no water.

(Where there is no sustainable hope, compassion, love, caring, gentleness…)

2 Thus I have seen You in the sanctuary,

To see Your power and Your glory.

3 Because Your lovingkindness is better than life, My lips will praise You.

4 So I will bless You as long as I live; I will lift up my hands in Your name.

5 My soul is satisfied as with marrow and fatness, And my mouth offers praises with joyful lips.

6 When I remember You on my bed,

I meditate on You in the night watches,

7 For You have been my help,And in the shadow of Your wings I sing for joy.

8 My soul clings to You; Your right hand upholds me.

9 But those who seek my life to destroy it,

Will go into the depths of the earth.

10 They will be delivered over to the power of the sword; They will be a prey for foxes.

11 But the king will rejoice in God; Everyone who swears by Him will glory, For the mouths of those who speak lies will be stopped.

Refuge from Treachery and Oppression

Psalm 62

1 My soul waits in silence for God only;

From Him is my salvation.

2 He only is my rock and my salvation,

My stronghold; I shall not be greatly shaken.

3 How long will you assail a man,

That you may murder him, all of you,

Like a leaning wall, like a tottering fence?

4 They have counseled only to thrust him down from his high position;They delight in falsehood; They bless with their mouth,But inwardly they curse

5 My soul, wait in silence for God only,

For my hope is from Him.

6 He only is my rock and my salvation,

My stronghold; I shall not be shaken.

7 On God my salvation and my glory rest;

The rock of my strength, my refuge is in God.

8 Trust in Him at all times, O people; Pour out your heart before Him; God is a refuge for us.

9 Men of low degree are only vanity and men of rank are a lie; In the balances they go up;They are together lighter than breath.

10 Do not trust in oppressionAnd do not vainly hope in robbery;If riches increase, do not set your heart upon them.

In the balances they go up;They are together lighter than breath.

11 Once God has spoken;Twice I have heard this:That power belongs to God;

12 And lovingkindness is Yours, O Lord, For You recompense a man according to his work.

Hallelujah and Amen! 😁

Prayer for Protection, Guidance and Pardon

Psalm 25

1 To You, O Lord, I lift up my soul.

2 O my God, in You I trust,

Do not let me be ashamed;

Do not let my enemies exult over me.

3 Indeed, none of those who wait for You will be ashamed; Those who deal treacherously without cause will be ashamed.

4 Make me know Your ways, O Lord; Teach me Your paths.

5 Lead me in Your truth and teach me,

For You are the God of my salvation;

For You I wait all the day.

6 Remember, O Lord, Your compassion and Your lovingkindnesses,

For they have been from of old.

7 Do not remember the sins of my youth or my transgressions;
According to Your lovingkindness remember me,

For Your goodness’ sake, O Lord.

Good and upright is the Lord;

Therefore He instructs sinners in the way.
9 He leads the humble in justice

And He teaches the humble His Way.

10 All the paths of the Lord are lovingkindness and truth

To those who keep His covenant and His testimonies.

11 For Your name’s sake, O Lord,

Pardon my iniquity, for it is great.

A Cry of Anguish and a Song of Praise

Psalm 22

1 My God, my God, why have You forsaken me? Far from my deliverance are the words of my groaning.

2 O my God, I cry by day, but You do not answer; And by night, but I have no rest.

3 Yet You are holy, O You who are enthroned upon the praises of Israel.

4 In You our fathers trusted;

They trusted and You delivered them.

(Trust, a part of faithfulness. Loyalty is required!)

5 To You they cried out and were delivered; In You they trusted and were not disappointed.

6 But I am a worm and not a man,

A reproach of men and despised by the people.

7 All who see me sneer at me; They separate with the lip, they wag the head, saying,

8 “Commit yourself to the Lord; let Him deliver him; Let Him rescue him, because He delights in him.”

(We won’t help you! Let him rely on something that doesn’t exist! That is dead, that has not proven its existence to me!

For they are blind & deaf!

The Lord has shown me that he has given ALL many, many chances! Revealed Himself to each & everyone of us!

The blind & deaf reject The Still Small Voice, the Thunder & Lightning Voice

9 Yet You are He who brought me forth from the womb;

You made me trust when upon my mother’s breasts.10 Upon You I was cast from birthYou have been my God from my mother’s womb.

Born with the Gift of Faith! Ty Lord!

For much favor!

Having a parent (My Mother) who has the Gift of Faith as well, has been a blessing!

I am honored, i am very touched by such a thing!

Thank You Elohim! 😊😚❣️

The Closer We Get…

To Elohim, the more the devoid will attack us because we threaten evil and selfish ways of living.

Psalm 60

Workers in Christ

Matthew 9

36 Seeing the people, He felt compassion for them, because they were distressed and dispirited like sheep without a shepherd.

37 Then He *said to His disciples, The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few.

38 Therefore beseech the Lord of the harvest to send out workers into His harvest.

There are Sowers, there are Reapers, there are Water Bearers and Fertilizers (those who give meat).

Then there are the many various ways in which to do the above.

And then, there are the various cultures/mindsets/backgrounds, in which understanding will come!

I beseech Thee, oh Lord of the Harvest, Elohim, to send more workers in Thy Field of Humanity, in Yeshua’s holy name, I pray, amen.

Matthew 5:21-22

ft Matthew 5:21-22 The fact that we are being persecuted proves that we have been faithful; faithless people would be unnoticed.

NASB Living Application Study Bible ©2000

I remember a Pastor’s Wife saying, “i don’t have any persecution.”

No tribulations.

i just looked at her.

Not having the words, not having Matthew 5:11 in my head then.

“Blessed are you when people insult you and persecute you, and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of Me.”

This is not something that happens occasionally.

Not something to look back upon, as if it is behind you.

It is something that happens, you wish and pray would stop, it hurts so bad (ie: David verses…).

Persecution, crucifixion, same difference.

More levels? More crucifixions!

Longer ones, deeper ones.

Scars.

The Old Man.

The lives you had before.

For you are indeed a new person …

Each time.

Resurrected.

Not something you will ever desire another to go through.

You, yourself, do not want to do it again.

Yet, you will.

You know, or will know, you will.

Willing lie down in the Olive Press.

The Ark.

That ship headed into the Perfect Storm.

Why?

Transformation is a bytch! 😀

Yet i choose my death!

Crucifixion

over my soul dying, any day! 🙂

For that pain has no end.

That numb, watching myself-can’t-stop-myself bs, pain.

Living hell.

Vs Living Heaven?

Walking Dead vs Flying Righteousness? 😀

Peace, Love & Mustard Greens! 😀

In Yeshua’s holy name, amen. 😀

Family

Matthew 10

i see so many people putting their all into their children, their spouse even.

Creating this perfect world around them, devoted to them.

Our devotion is to be for Elohim alone.

Our spouse 2nd to our relationship with Yeshua, the Christ.

Our children 3rd, to even that.

In the ways of Christ, in ways that do not conflict with Christ, in our hearts.

For the Holy Spirit will guide us in making such choices, every second of the day.

Thou art blessed to find & hold onto Christ, intimately, daily (secondly), for a year or more before finding a spouse.

For your spouse, your children need to see you dedicating yourself to Christ on the daily.

They will see this as you go about it normally. No need to be showy, nor hide it from your loved ones.

Everyone needs a break from each other.

Everyone needs to spend quality time with Christ, alone, individually.

Children may need to learn with you for awhile.

Spouses need to spend time together with Christ, intimately as well.

As a family too.

First individually, then spouses, then immediately family, then the rest….

Then your community at large.

Imagine everyone spending intimate time with Christ, first thing in the morning!

Like a wave across the planet!

Peace, the Holy Spirit washing over the entire planet in waves…

😌

(In Yeshua’s holy name, I pray…amen.)
