Wings Like a Dove

September 10, 2015

Oh, that I had wings like a dove! I would fly away and be at rest. -Ps 55:6

Who are these who fly like a cloud and like doves to their windows? -Is 60:8
Who shine with the Lord’s glory?Isa 60:1-3

Those who look to the Lord for help are radiant!
Their faces will never blush in shame or confusion.
–Ps 34:5 AMP

Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the LORD rises upon you. -Is 60:1

My beloved speaks and says to me, Arise, my love, my fair one, and come away. …
… O my dove, [here] in the clefts in the rock,
In the sheltered and secret place of the steep pathway,
Let me see your face, Let me hear your voice;
For your voice is sweet, And your face is lovely. -Song 2:10,14

Arise, my dove, come away and be at rest!

Almond Blossoms at the Door

May 30, 2010

Proverbs 8:34 Blessed is the man who listens to [08085]{hears,obeys} me, watching[08245] daily at my gates, waiting at the posts of my doors.

Jeremiah 1:11-12 Moreover the word of the LORD came to me, saying, “Jeremiah, what do you see?” And I said, “I see a branch of an almond[08247] tree. ” … Then the LORD said to me, “You have seen well, for I am watching[08245]

Numbers 17:6-8 So Moses spoke to the children of Israel, and each of their leaders gave him a rod apiece, for each leader according to their fathers’ houses, twelve rods; and the rod of Aaron was among their rods. 7So Moses deposited the rods before the LORD in the tent of the testimony. 8Now it came to pass on the next day that Moses went into the tabernacle of witness, and behold, the rod of Aaron, of the house of Levi, had sprouted and put forth buds, had produced blossoms and yielded ripe almonds[08247].

The word for almond[08247] means earliest in bloom, wakeful, watchful as tho it never slept, it comes from the same word for watching[08245]. The rod of Aaron {the branch} laid in the Lord’s Presence all thru the night in the tent of the testimony. The next morning the rod the Lord had chosen had blossomed and generated the full fruit of almonds.

The one who hears, listens and obeys
Is found at the feet of  I AM

Speak, for Your servant hears[08085]! -1 Sam 3:10

Watching daily at my gates, waiting at the posts of my doors
Kept safe under my wings thru the night.

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. -Ps 42:8

Wait, expectantly wait at my feet
Covered
Kept thru the night …

I wait[06960] {look,hope} for the Lord,
I expectantly wait, my soul does wait,
And in His word do I hope.
My soul waits for the Lord
More than the watchmen for the morning;
Indeed, more than the watchmen for the morning. -Ps 130:5-6

Until in the doorway on the wings of dawn
Your blossoms appear, cascading
Shining, full of the sun’s morning light.

I will sing for joy in God,
Explode in praise from deep in my soul!
He dressed me up in a suit of salvation,
He outfitted me in a robe of righteousness,
As a bridegroom who puts on a tuxedo and a bride a jeweled tiara.
For as the earth bursts with spring wildflowers,
And as a garden cascades with blossoms,
So the Master, God, brings righteousness into full bloom
And puts praise on display before the nations. -Isa 61:10-11 MSG
