My Heart Will Sing!

June 30, 2018

My heart will sing – no other name
Jesus, Jesus …

Sing no other name – only JESUS
With an undivided heart
=> pure JOY
=> Filled with the Spirit
=> EQUIPPED!


.
Psalm 86:11-12Teach me Your way, O LORD, and I will walk in Your truth; give me an undivided heart, that I may fear Your name. 12 I will praise you, O Lord my God, with all my heart; I will glorify Your name forever.
.
Ephesians 5:18-20be filled with the Spirit. 19 Speak to one another with psalms, hymns and spiritual songs. Sing and make music in your heart to the Lord, 20 always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Word Study
.
From NetBible Ps 30:11

  • girded me with gladness = clothed me with joy
  • clothed-‘azar[0247] = girded(metaphorical of strength), encompassed, equipped
  • joy-simchah[08057] = joy, mirth, gladness, joy (of God)
    *The root denotes being glad or joyful with the whole disposition, the whole heart [08056] [08055]

.
From NetBible Hos 6:3 & Ps 86:11

  • Psalm 86:11 Teach[03384] me Your way, O LORD
    .
    Hosea 6:3 … 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.
    .
  • 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)

Notice how the word for rain/ watering is the same as teach. This is very comforting. To those who press on to know and acknowledge the Lord with an undivided{pure} heart, He will come like rain to water/teach{fill} personally.

John 6:53-58 NASB … So Jesus said to them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink His blood, you have no life in yourselves. 54 He who eats My flesh and drinks My blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up on the last day. 55 For My flesh is true food, and My blood is true drink. 56 He who eats My flesh and drinks My blood abides in Me, and I in him. 57 As the living Father sent Me, and I live because of the Father, so he who eats Me, he also will live because of Me. 58 This is the bread which came down out of heaven; not as the fathers ate and died; he who eats this bread will live forever.

Matthew 4:4 But He answered and said, “It is written, ‘Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God.’”

Serpents and Doves

June 14, 2018

Matthew 10:16 AMPC … Behold, I am sending you out like sheep in the midst of wolves; be wary and wise as serpents, and be innocent (harmless, guileless, and without falsity) as doves.

Be on guard, sober and alert –1Pe 5:8
Do not be deceived –Gal 6:7-8
Do not be led astray –2Cor 11:3
The unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God –1Cor 6:9-11
Be wise as serpents
=> mature in your thinking/understanding –
1Cor 14:20
Declare the whole counsel of God –Acts 20:27-29
Preach His word in and out of season –2Tim4:2
Be gentle as doves –2Tim2:25
That opponents may come to repentance that leads to the Truth
And escape the snare of the devil. –
2Tim2:26

2 Corinthians 11:2-4 NLT … For I am jealous for you with the jealousy of God himself. I promised you as a pure bride to one husband—Christ. 3 But I fear that somehow your pure and undivided devotion to Christ will be corrupted, just as Eve was deceived by the cunning ways of the serpent. 4 You happily put up with whatever anyone tells you, even if they preach a different Jesus than the one we preach, or a different kind of Spirit than the one you received, or a different kind of gospel than the one you believed.

In the Shadow We See

feathers
.
Psalm 91:4 NLT
4 He will shield you with His wings. He will shelter you with His feathers. His faithful promises are your armor and protection.
.
In the shadow, in the shadow
The hidden revealed
The concealed brought to light –Mk 4:22
The “WAY” made clear. –Jn 14:6
.
In the shadow, in the shadow
Of His wings rest secure
Here only in His light
Do we taste and SEE! –Ps 36:9, 34:8
.
He who has ears, let him hear. –Mk 4:23
.
1 Corinthians 2:9-12 NLT
9 That is what the Scriptures mean when they say,
“No eye has seen, no ear has heard,
and no mind has imagined
what God has prepared
for those who love Him.”
10 But it was to us that God revealed these things by His Spirit. For His Spirit searches out everything and shows us God’s deep secrets. 11 No one can know a person’s thoughts except that person’s own spirit, and no one can know God’s thoughts except God’s own Spirit. 12 And we have received God’s Spirit (not the world’s spirit), so we can know the wonderful things God has freely given us.

Forever Faithful Rock

June 8, 2018

Forever faithfulPs 100:5
Forever true Rev 19:11-13

Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever. –He 13:8

Jesus Christ is faithful and true
=> He always does just what He says – there is no question!

He alone is my Rock!Ps 62:6
The LORD lives! Praise be to my Rock!
Exalted be God my Saviour!
Ps 18:46

Hebrews 10:19-23 TLB … And so, dear brothers(and sisters), now we may walk right into the very Holy of Holies, where God is, because of the blood of Jesus. 20 This is the fresh, new, life-giving way that Christ has opened up for us by tearing the curtain—His human body—to let us into the holy presence of God.
21 And since this great High Priest of ours rules over God’s household, 22 let us go right in to God himself, with true hearts fully trusting Him to receive us because we have been sprinkled with Christ’s blood to make us clean and because our bodies have been washed with pure water.

23 Now we can look forward to the salvation God has promised us. There is no longer any room for doubt, and we can tell others that salvation is ours, for there is no question that He will do what He says.

Noble Heart?

June 4, 2018


.
Luke 8:15 AMP … But as for that seed in the good soil, these are the ones who have heard the word with a good and noble heart, and hold on to it tightly, and bear fruit with patience.
.
Who has a noble heart?
.
Acts 17:11 AMP … Now these people were more noble and open-minded than those in Thessalonica, so they received the message [of salvation through faith in the Christ] with great eagerness, examining the Scriptures daily to see if these things were so.
.
Luke 8:18 AMP … So be careful how you listen; for whoever has [a teachable heart], to him more [understanding] will be given; and whoever does not have [a longing for truth], even what he thinks he has will be taken away from him.”
.
Mark 4:23-25 AMP … If anyone has ears to hear, let him hear and heed My words.” 24 Then He said to them, “Pay attention to what you hear. By your own standard of measurement [that is, to the extent that you study spiritual truth and apply godly wisdom] it will be measured to you [and you will be given even greater ability to respond]—and more will be given to you besides. 25 For whoever has [a teachable heart], to him more [understanding] will be given; and whoever does not have [a yearning for truth], even what he has will be taken away from him.”

**Footnotes:
Mark 4:25 The person “who has” is one who is receptive to God’s word, while the one “who does not have” is the person who is blind to and has rejected the spiritual truth and godly wisdom already given to him. As a result, even what little he had previously understood about Jesus will no longer be clear to him.

Place of Surrender

Daniel 3:16-18 Shadrach, Meshach and Abed-nego replied to the king, “O Nebuchadnezzar, we do not need to give you an answer concerning this matter. 17 If it be so, our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the furnace of blazing fire; and He will deliver us out of your hand, O king. 18 But even if He does not, let it be known to you, O king, that we are not going to serve your gods or worship the golden image that you have set up.”
.
Esther 4:16“Go, assemble all the Jews who are found in Susa, and fast for me; do not eat or drink for three days, night or day. I and my maidens also will fast in the same way. And thus I will go in to the king, which is not according to the law; and if I perish, I perish.”
.
Job 13:14-15“Why should I take my flesh in my teeth
And put my life in my hands?
15 “Though He slay me,
I will hope in Him.
Nevertheless I will argue my ways before Him.

.
I know You’re able and I know You can
Save through the fire with Your mighty hand
But even if You don’t
My hope is You alone …

Psalm 31:23-24O love the Lord, all you His saints! The Lord preserves the faithful, and plentifully pays back him who deals haughtily{proudly}.
