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.

Father- Glorify Your Name

November 1, 2017

Isaiah 26:8Yes, LORD, walking in the way of Your laws{your judgements}, we wait for You; Your name and renown are the desire of our hearts.

Isaiah 26:8 NLT … LORD, we love to obey your laws; our heart’s desire is to glorify your name.

Our heart’s desire, O Lord, is to glorify Your Holy name!

Help us to praise Your name, O Lord, and tell of
… Your mighty deeds. 
Is 12:4

Isaiah 12:4 NLT … In that wonderful day you will sing: “Thank the LORD! Praise His name! Tell the world what He has done. Oh, how mighty He is!

John 12:28 … [Jesus says]“Father, glorify Your name.” Then a voice came out of heaven: “I have both glorified it, and will glorify it again.”
.

Study
.
From Jn 12:28

  • Barnes’ Notes on the Bible:
    Glorify thy name – The meaning of this expression in this connection is this: “I am willing to bear any trials; I will not shrink from any sufferings. Let thy name be honored. Let thy character, wisdom, goodness, and plans of mercy be manifested and promoted, whatever sufferings it may cost me.” Thus Jesus showed us that God’s glory is to be the great end of our conduct, and that we are to seek that, whatever sufferings it may cost us.

Prayer in Secret = Rewarded in Open

July 16, 2017


.
Matthew 6:1, 5-6 AMPC
1 Take care not to do your good deeds publicly or before men, in order to be seen by them; otherwise you will have no reward [reserved for and awaiting you] with and from your Father Who is in heaven. …
… 5 Also when you pray, you must not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the corners of the streets, that they may be seen by people. Truly I tell you, they have their reward in full already.
6 But when you pray, go into your [most] private room, and, closing the door, pray to your Father, Who is in secret; and your Father, Who sees in secret, will reward you in the open.
