Until Your Heart Sings

May 26, 2016

Psalm 27:13-14 AMPC …  [What, what would have become of me] had I not believed that I would see the Lord’s goodness in the land of the living! 14 Wait and hope for and expect the Lord; be brave and of good courage and let your heart be stout and enduring. Yes, wait for and hope for and expect the Lord.

From NetBible Ps 27:13-14

v13 … I would have lost heart{despaired,given up hope, lost heart,fainted} [What, what would have become of me]  , unless I had believed that I would see{ experience} the goodness of the LORD In the land of the living.

v14 … Wait and hope for and expect{rely on} the Lord; be brave{strong} and of good courage and let your heart be stout{strengthened} and enduring{firm}. Yes, wait for and hope for and expect{rely on} the Lord.

Wait, hope, expect, rely on the Lord
Wholeheartedly trust Him
Let your heart be steadfast
Fixed on Him
Be strengthened there
Held in His perfect peace, perfect rest –
Is 26:3
In the shadow of His wings –Ps 91:1
Be held there

Cling to Him –Ps 63:8
Until you are helped{experience His goodness} …

… Until your heart greatly rejoices and sings!Ps 63:7

Psalm 28:7 AMPC … The Lord is my Strength and my [impenetrable] Shield; my heart trusts in, relies on, and confidently leans on Him, and I am helped; therefore my heart greatly rejoices, and with my song will I praise Him.

Psalm 57:7-8 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]!

From NetBible Ps 57:8

  • * “Dawn” is used metaphorically for the time of deliverance and vindication the psalmist anticipates. When salvation “dawns,” the psalmist will “wake up” in praise.
    =>I will awake the dawn = I will see the deliverance/vindication{goodness} of the Lord

Selah [pause, and calmly think of that]!

A New Day Dawning

July 3, 2015

For those who revere and worshipfully fear My name
It’s a new day dawning
The Son of righteousness rises
Shining brighter
Brighter than the noonday. –
Ps 37:6; Prv 4:18

As surely as the sunrise
Jesus comes
With healing in His wings
Anointed with joy.

Anointed healing wings
Joy unspeakable and full of glory!1Pe 1:8

Malachi 4:2 AMP
2 But unto you who revere and worshipfully fear My name shall the Sun of Righteousness arise with healing in His wings and His beams, and you shall go forth and gambol like calves [released] from the stall and leap for joy.

2 Samuel 23:4 AMP
4 He dawns on them like the morning light when the sun rises on a cloudless morning, when the tender grass springs out of the earth through clear shining after rain.

Hosea 6:3 AMP
3 Yes, let us know (recognize, be acquainted with, and understand) Him; let us be zealous to know the Lord [to appreciate, give heed to, and cherish Him]. His going forth is prepared and certain as the dawn, and He will come to us as the [heavy] rain, as the latter rain that waters the earth.

Lion of Judah ROAR!

February 18, 2015

Joel 3:16 AMP
16 The Lord will thunder and roar from Zion and utter His voice from Jerusalem, and the heavens and the earth shall shake; but the Lord will be a refuge for His people and a stronghold to the children of Israel.

1 Samuel 2:10 AMP
10 The adversaries of the Lord shall be broken to pieces; against them will He thunder in heaven. The Lord will judge [all peoples] to the ends of the earth; and He will give strength to His king (King) and exalt the power of His anointed (Anointed His Christ).

Psalm 29:4 AMP
4 The voice of the Lord is powerful; the voice of the Lord is full of majesty.

From: A Mighty Thunderous Roar {Article}

All will tremble at the roar of the Lion of Judah (Amos 3:8). To those who contend with the Lord, His roar will show His wrath (Prov 19:12, 20:2). They will tremble in terror. But to those who belong to the Lord it will be protection. They will tremble in awe and respect gathered like protected children around Him.

A song:
Rise up O Lord, rise up
Rise up O Lord, rise up
Num10:35;Ps68:1-2

From the secret place of thunder
Rise up
Lion of Judah
ROAR!

From the secret place of thunder
ROAR!
A glorious mighty thunderous
ROAR!

Rise up O Lord, rise up
Rise up O Lord, rise up
Lion of Judah
ROAR!

Psalm 81:7 AMP
7 You called in distress and I delivered you; I answered you in the secret place of thunder; I tested you at the waters of Meribah. Selah [pause, and calmly think of that]!

From NetBible Ps 81:7

  • secret place[05643] = hiding place, covering, protection, shelter
  • *The name Meribah means “strife.” Two separate but similar incidents at the place called Meribah are recorded in the Pentateuch (Exod 17:1-7Num 20:1-13). In both cases the Israelites complained about lack of water and the Lord miraculously provided for them.

The Lord answers the cry of His children
From Zion, the secret place of His thunder
With His mighty, thunderous ROAR!
His ROAR of refuge and protection for His children
A terrifying ROAR to His enemies.

Zion is the Lord’s dwelling place
Zion is where the Lord is enthroned on the praises of His children.

From my article ‘Ascending Mount Zion‘, we saw that the center of the throne is where the Lord is enthroned on the praises of His people. God’s throne, His dwelling place, Zion, is encircled by those singing a new song, it’s here in this atmosphere of praise where the Lamb stands high and lifted up(Rev 5:6, 9-13).

From my article ‘Rise Up, O LORD!‘, Arise found in Psalm 132 links Zion with the Lord’s eternal resting place.

Psalm 132:7-9, 13-14 … Let us go into His dwelling place; Let us worship at His footstool. Arise[06965], O LORD, to Your resting place, You and the ark of Your strength. Let Your priests be clothed with righteousness, and let Your saints shout for joy. … 
… The LORD has chosen Zion; He has desired it for His habitation. This is My resting place forever; Here I will dwell, for I have desired it.

From: A Mighty Thunderous Roar
Awake the dawn {awake a time of deliverance/vindication}
Join the mighty thunderous roar
Let the triumph of praise be heard!

Deuteronomy 28:7 AMP
7 The Lord shall cause your enemies who rise up against you to be defeated before your face; they shall come out against you one way and flee before you seven ways.

A Harp in My Heart

August 5, 2012

There is a harp in my heart
And only You can play it
There is a song in my spirit
And only You can sing it

Awake my heart
Awake my soul
to sing

Jesus, Jesus, O Jesus
Deep in my soul
Jesus, Jesus, O Jesus
You are beautiful my sweet
Sweet Song.

My heart is steadfast, O God, my heart is steadfast; I will sing and make melody {in my heart}. Awake, my soul! Awake, harp and lyre! I will awaken the dawn{with my song}. I will praise You, O Lord, among the peoples; I will sing to You among the nations. For great is your love, reaching to the heavens; your faithfulness reaches to the skies. -Ps57:7-10

Do not get drunk on wine, which leads to debauchery. Instead, be filled with the Spirit. Speak to one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord, giving thanks always for all things to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, Submit to one another out of reverence for Christ. -Eph 5:18-21

The LORD is my strength and song, and He has become my salvation{victory}; This is my God, and I will praise Him{prepare Him a habitation}; My father’s God, and I will extol Him. -Ex 15:2

Behold, God is my salvation, I will trust and not be afraid; ‘For YAH, the LORD, is my strength and song; He also has become my salvation.’ Therefore with joy you will draw water from the wells of salvation. -Isa 12:2-3

An Everlasting Song

April 24, 2010

Quote from Spurgeon’s Evening Devotional for August 28

“Sing, O barren.” -Isaiah 54:1

But what can I sing about? I cannot talk about the present, and even the past looks full of barrenness. Ah! I can sing of Jesus Christ. … Come, my soul, heavy laden thou wast once, and thou didst lose thy burden there. Go to Calvary again. Perhaps that very cross which gave thee life may give thee fruitfulness. What is my barrenness? It is the platform for his fruit-creating power. What is my desolation? It is the black setting for the sapphire of his everlasting love. I will go in poverty, I will go in helplessness, I will go in all my shame and backsliding, I will tell him that I am still his child, and in confidence in his faithful heart, even I, the barren one, will sing and cry aloud.

Psalm 30:5 For His anger is but for a moment, His favor is for life; Weeping may endure for a night, But joy comes in the morning.

Joy after weeping in tears
Morning light breaking thru the darkest night.

Sing, O, barren, sing
There is a song that never dies
A crown of everlasting joy and delight.

The desert will rejoice and blossom, as the rose
Barrenness a platform for His fruit creating power
Desolation the black-setting for the sapphire of His everlasting love.

Sing, O, barren sing
The song that never dies.

Jesus your strength
Your song
Your everlasting delight.

His praise endures forever –Ps 111:10
His word forever settled in heaven –Ps 119:89

An everlasting song of praise to awake the dawn
… and vanquish the night.

Isaiah 35:1,8,10 The wilderness and the wasteland shall be glad for them, And the desert shall rejoice and blossom as the rose … And a highway will be there; it will be called the Way of Holiness. The unclean will not journey on it; it will be for those who walk in that Way; wicked fools will not go about on it. … and the ransomed of the LORD will return{in this Way}. They will enter Zion with singing; everlasting joy will crown their heads. Gladness and joy will overtake them, and sorrow and sighing will flee away.

Isaiah 54:1,11 Sing, O barren woman, you who never bore a child; burst into song, shout for joy, you who were never in labour; because more are the children of the desolate woman than of her who has a husband,” says the LORD. … O you afflicted one, Tossed with tempest, and not comforted, Behold, I will lay your stones with colorful gems, And lay your foundations with sapphires.

Exodus 15:2 The LORD is my strength and song, And He has become my salvation; He is my God, and I will praise{beautify,adorn with praise} Him; My father’s God, and I will exalt Him.

Psalm 57:7-9 My heart is steadfast, O God, my heart is steadfast;
I will sing and give praise.
Awake, my glory! Awake, lute and harp! I will awaken the dawn.
I will praise You, O Lord, among the peoples;
I will sing to You among the nations.
