Dove Eyes Behold

February 20, 2017

Psalm 32:8 AMPC … I [the Lord] will instruct you{make you wise} and teach[03384] you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with My eye upon you.

Psalm 101:6 AMPC … My eyes shall [look with favor] upon the faithful of the land, that they may dwell with me; he who walks blamelessly, he shall minister to me.

Hosea 6:3 NASB … So let us know{acknowledge}, let us press on to know{acknowledge} the LORD. His going forth is as certain as the dawn; And He will come to us like the rain, Like the spring rain watering[03384] the earth.

From NetBible  Hos 6:3Ps 32:8

  • rain watering/teach[03384] = to shoot arrows, to throw water, rain, to flow as water, to instruct, to point out (as if by aiming the finger)

=> To those who press on to know and acknowledge the Lord with an undivided{pure} heart, He will come like rain to water/teach personally. They will see “eye to eye”, with “the eyes of His dove”(Song 4:1, 1:15,5:12;Ps 32:8;Ps 86:11)

=> these will dwell in the shadow of His wings, with His eye upon them, as the apple of His eye, these will minister to the Most High!(Ps 91:1,4;Ps 101:6;Ps 17:8)
.

Lord help me to press on with a pure heart, that I may see “eye to eye” with You and minister to You. Keep me as the apple of Your eye, hidden beneath Your wings(Ps 17:8). In Jesus name.

Remember the Lord in the midst of opposition!
Behold, His hand is not too short to save
Nor is His ear to dull to hear.Is 59:1

Call on the name of the Lord
The name of the LORD is a strong tower
The righteous run to it
And are safe{set safely on high}.Pro 18:10

When the enemy comes in like a flood
The Lord lifts up a standard against him!

Isaiah 59:1,19 AMPC … Behold, the Lord’s hand is not shortened at all, that it cannot save, nor His ear dull with deafness, that it cannot hear …
… 19 So [as the result of the Messiah’s intervention] they shall [reverently] fear the name of the Lord from the west, and His glory from the rising of the sun. When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the Lord will lift up a standard against him and put him to flight [for He will come like a rushing stream which the breath of the Lord drives].

Job 37:21 BBE … And now the light is not seen, for it is dark because of the clouds; but a wind comes, clearing{cleansing} them away.

Like refreshing rains that bring forth tender grass.  –
2Sa 23:4

My message shall drop as the rain, my speech shall distil as the dew, as the light rain upon the tender grass, and as the showers upon the herb. -Dt 32:2 AMPC

The “Son” of righteousness{vindication}
Rises with healing in His wings!Mal 4:2

Word Study

From NetBible Job 37:21

  • And now the light is not seen, for it is dark because of the clouds; but a wind comes, clearing{cleansing} them away.
  • * The light here must refer to the sun in the skies that had been veiled by the storm. Then, when the winds blew the clouds away, it could not be looked at because it was so dazzling. Elihu’s analogy will be that God is the same – in his glory one cannot look at him or challenge him.
  • clearing{cleansing}[02891] = purify, heal

.

From NetBible Hos 6:3

  • Let us acknowledge the LORD; let us press on to acknowledge him. As surely as the sun rises, he will appear; he will come to us like the winter rains, like the spring rains that water the earth.
  • spring rains water[03384] = to direct, teach, instruct

.

From NetBible 2Sa 23:4

  • [He]Is as the light of the morning when the sun rises, A morning without clouds, When the tender grass springs out of the earth, Through sunshine after rain.
  • light[0216] = light of instruction
  • morning[01242] = bright joy after night of distress

.

From NetBible Dt 32:2

  • My message shall drop as the rain, my speech shall distil as the dew, as the light rain upon the tender grass, and as the showers upon the herb.
  • showers[07241] = prophetic influence!!!

***

Look what awakens the dawn of a new day!

Psalm 57:7-9 AMPC … My heart is fixed, O God, my heart is steadfast and confident! I will sing and make melody. 8 Awake, my glory (my inner self); awake, harp and lyre! I will awake right early [I will awaken the dawn]! 9 I will praise and give thanks to You, O Lord, among the peoples; I will sing praises to You among the nations.

Growing in Grace and Truth

February 9, 2017

  1. Read: 2Peter 3:1-7
    Above all know-remember this:
    => In the last days scoffers will deny the promise of Christ’s return.
    => Their argument against Christ’s return was this: since it has not occurred yet it will not happen.
    =>They “willfully” forgot the words of the Lord = about the flood as divine intervention.
    => v7: By His word the present heavens and earth are being kept for the day of judgment and destruction of the ungodly.
    =>I am coming quickly; hold fast what you have, so that no one will take your crown. -Rev 3:11
  2. Read: 2Peter 3:8-12
    => v9: The Lord is not slow about His promise, as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing for any to perish but for all to come to repentance.
    => Now all glory to God, who is able to keep you from falling away and will bring you with great joy into his glorious presence without a single fault. 25 All glory to him who alone is God, our Savior through Jesus Christ our Lord. All glory, majesty, power, and authority are his before all time, and in the present, and beyond all time! Amen. -Jude 1:24-25
  3. Read: 2Peter 3:13-18
    =>From Biblehub =>Ignorance naturally produces instability; those who have no clear principles of Christian doctrine easily fall victims to seductions of all kinds.
    => v14: Therefore, beloved, be diligent to live a pure and blameless life. And be at peace with God.
    => “Think and do these things” and the God of peace will be with you. I can do all things thru Christ who strengthens me! –Phil 4:8-9,13
  4. Read: Psalm 119:1-8
    => Blessed are those{the upright} who walk in His ways
    => They keep His testimonies, seek, inquire for and of Him and crave Him with their whole heart.
    .
    Psalm 101:6 AMPC … My eyes shall [look with favor] upon the faithful of the land, that they may dwell with me; he who walks blamelessly, he shall minister to me.

Overwhelmed?

February 7, 2017

ps18_28
.
Psalm 142:3 NLT … For I am overwhelmed, and You alone know the way I should turn. 

Overwhelmed in a dark place?
Remember no matter how dark it is
=> The Lord knows the “Way” out
=> Only He knows the way out of this “prison”!

Remember Paul and Silas
Worship and pray!

Acts 16:25-26 NASB … But about midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns of praise to God, and the prisoners were listening to them; 26 and suddenly there came a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison house were shaken; and immediately all the doors were opened and everyone’s chains were unfastened.

Psalm 142:7 NLT … Bring me out of prison so I can thank You. The godly will crowd around me, for You treat me kindly.

From NetBible Ps 142:3

  • overwhelmed[05848]= grow weak, faint, despair, shrouded in darkness
  • NET … when my strength leaves me,  You watch my footsteps. …
  • NIV … When my spirit grows faint within me, it is You who know my way. …

From NetBible Ps 142:7

  • prison[04525]= dungeon
  • NET … Free me  from prison, that I may give thanks to Your name. Because of me the godly will assemble,  for You will vindicate me.
  • NIV … Set me free from my prison, that I may praise Your name. Then the righteous will gather about me because of Your goodness to me.
  • NKJV … Bring my soul out of prison, That I may praise Your name; The righteous shall surround me, For You shall deal bountifully with me.

Psalm 42:8 NASB … The Lord will command His lovingkindness in the daytime; And His song will be with me in the night, a prayer to the God of my life.

Psalm 32:7,10 AMPC … You are a hiding place for me; You, Lord, preserve me from trouble, You surround me with songs and shouts of deliverance. Selah [pause, and calmly think of that]! …
… 10 Many are the sorrows of the wicked, but he who trusts in, relies on, and confidently leans on the Lord shall be compassed about with mercy and with loving-kindness.

Walk as Children of Light!

February 4, 2017

pro4_18Proverbs 4:14-19 NASB
14 Do not enter the path of the wicked and do not proceed in the way of evil men.
15 Avoid it, do not pass by it; Turn away from it and pass on.
16 For they cannot sleep unless they do evil;
And they are robbed of sleep unless they make someone stumble.
17 For they eat the bread of wickedness
And drink the wine of violence.
18 But the path of the righteous is like the light of dawn,
That shines brighter and brighter until the full day.
19 The way of the wicked is like darkness;
They do not know over what they stumble.

=>Walk as children of light. Learn what is pleasing to the Lord. Do not participate in the unfruitful deeds of darkness, but instead even expose them.

=> The fruit of the Light consists in all goodness and righteousness and truth(Eph 5:8-11).
