Stand Upright

May 15, 2017

It’s only by the LORD’s grace, compassion and lovingkindness that we can stand upright before Him. Only when we have our faces turned toward the Son can we continue to walk uprightly on the path of righteousness(Pro 4:18).

STAND TALL – STAND UPRIGHT – Before the Lord
FACE the SON!

Who is this, that arises{grows} like the dawn? –Sos 6:10

The path of the righteous is like the first gleam of dawn, growing, shining ever brighter till the full light of day. Pro 4:18

The Doe of the Morning –Ps 22:1
… Panting for the streams –Ps 42:1
… Thirsting for the living God. –Ps 42:2

Who is this, beautiful, fair as the moon, reflecting the Son? –Sos 6:10

My dove, My perfect{pure} one  –Sos 6:9
The spotless bride, radiant –Eph 5:27, Ps 34:5;Jer 31:12
… Washed by the water of the word –Eph 5:26
… Shining bright as stars in procession –Dan 12:3

The Doe of the Morning. –Ps 22:1 
.
Song of Songs 8:14 AMPC [Joyfully the radiant bride turned to Him, the one altogether lovely, the chief among ten thousand to her soul, and with unconcealed eagerness to begin her life of sweet companionship with Him, she answered] Make haste, my beloved, and come quickly, like a gazelle or a young hart [and take me to our waiting home] upon the mountains of spices!

Isaiah 60:19-20 NKJV … “The sun shall no longer be your light by day, nor for brightness shall the moon give light to you; But the Lord will be to you an everlasting light, and your God your glory. 20 Your sun shall no longer go down, nor shall your moon withdraw itself; For the Lord will be your everlasting light, and the days of your mourning shall be ended.

Song of Songs 6:10  Who is this that arises{appears, grows} like the dawn, beautiful{fair} as the full moon{white, purified one}, pure{bright, radiant} as the sun, awesome as an army with banners{majestic as the stars in procession}?

From NetBible Sos 6:10

  • dawn[07837] = daybreak, morning light, sunrise
    Ps 22:1 => Doe of the Morning
  • full moon[03842] = white, purified one
  • pure[01249] = bright, clean
  • *  stars in procession are often compared to the heavenly armies. This nuance is clear in the light of the parallelism with the dawn, moon, and sun.

Jesus is our Dayspring from on High!

June 2, 2016

Psalm 112:4 AMPC … Light arises in the darkness for the upright, gracious, compassionate, and just [who are in right standing with God].

From NetBible Ps 112:4

  • NIV … Even in darkness light dawns for the upright, for the gracious and compassionate and righteous.
  • NLT … When darkness overtakes the godly, light will come bursting in. They are generous, compassionate, and righteous.

Even in the darkness
When storm clouds seem to overtake –Job 37:21
Son light arises, bursts in
Dawns for the upright –
Ps 112:4
For those who are gracious, compassionate and just
Who are in right standing with the Lord Jesus.

Jesus is our Dayspring from on High – our Sonrise after the dark!

Luke 1:78-79 NET … Because of our God’s tender mercy the dawn will break upon us from on High, 79 to give light to those who sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the way of peace.

From NetBible Lk 1:78

  • God’s tender mercy is seen in the deliverance of those in darkness by Jesus who is the light of dawning day.
    =>2Cor 4:6 NET … For God, who said “Let light shine out of darkness,”  is the one who shined in our hearts to give us the light of the glorious knowledge of God in the face of Christ.
  • Dayspring: The Messiah is pictured as a saving light that shows the way. The Greek term was also used to translate the Hebrew word for “branch” or “sprout”
  • Zec 6:12 NET … Then say to him, ‘The Lord who rules over all says, “Look – here is the man whose name is Branch,  who will sprout up from his place and build the temple of the Lord. =>describes the rise of the Messiah, already referred to in this manner in Zec 3:8 (Is 11:1; 53:2; Jer 33:15). In the immediate context this refers to Zerubbabel, but the ultimate referent is Jesus (Jn 19:5).
  • Jn 19:5 NET … So Jesus came outside, wearing the crown of thorns and the purple robe.  Pilate  said to them, “Look, here is the man!” =>Pilate’s words constituted an unconscious allusion to Zec 6:12. Pilate (unknowingly and ironically) presented Jesus to the nation under a messianic title.

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.

From NetBible Job 37:21

  • clearing{cleansing}[02891] = purify, heal

Son Light on my Face!

September 5, 2012

I look up
I see
The dark storm clouds parted
Parted by the Son bringing light.

My face turns upwards to see
The beauty of the Son -Ps 27:4-6
Pure joy -1Pe 1:8;Ps 16:11
Sheer delight
I feel the Son light on my face.

Jesus the Son
The radiance of God’s glory -Heb 1:3
Full of grace and truth -Jn 1:14
There is no place so dark
that the light of the Son can not reach! -Ps 139:10-12

Lift up your heads O ye gates
The storm clouds part
The King of Glory comes
Strong and mighty is He -Ps 24
Feel the Son light on your face!

Psalm 112:4 …  Even in darkness light dawns{arises} for the upright, for the gracious and compassionate and righteous one.

2 Samuel 23:4   He is like the light of morning at sunrise on a cloudless morning, like the brightness after rain that brings the grass from the earth.

Psalm 11:7 …  The LORD is righteous, He loves righteousness; The upright will behold His face.

May the Lord bless you and keep you; May the Lord make His face shine on you and be gracious to you; May the Lord turn His face toward you and give you peace. -Num 6:24-26

God of the Valleys

March 11, 2012

Hosea 2:15 There I will give her back her vineyards, and will make the Valley of Achor a door of hope. There she will sing as in the days of her youth, as in the day she came up out of Egypt.

God promises to make the valley of Achor[05911]{trouble} – a door of hope!

Psalm 84:5-7How blessed is the one whose strength is in You, in whose heart are the highways to Zion! Passing through the valley of Baca they make it a spring; The early rain also covers it with blessings.

God promises to make the valley of Baca[01056]{weeping} – a spring; a place of blessing!


Psalm 23:4
Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for You are with me; Your rod and your staff, they comfort me.

God promises that even when we walk through the valley of the shadow of death, there is no reason to fear, for He is with us bringing comfort.
🙂
There is no shadow without a light somewhere.
Don’t look at the shadow, turn towards the light –Jn 8:12
Face the Son and the shadow falls behind you.

Sunlight On Your Face

March 4, 2009
Psalm 112:4   Even in darkness light dawns{arises} for the upright, for the gracious and compassionate and righteous one.

Soon after posting Upright Dawn and thinking about light dawning in the darkness I heard the following song.

You Led Me
BarlowGirl
.
Good morning
The night is over and gone
I thought once
This dark would last for so long
.
Pre Chorus
Feel the sunlight
On my face
You have brought me
Through this place
.
Chorus
Jesus, Jesus You found me
Through the long night you led me
You set me free

Do you see
Just what you’ve done in my life?

You gave me
More then I hoped for; now I

Pre Chorus
feel your sunlight
On my face
You have brought me
Through this place

It brought me such hope! There is no place so dark that the light of the Son can not reach.

If I say, “Surely the darkness will overwhelm me, and the light around me will be night,”  even the darkness will not be dark to You; the night will shine like the day, for darkness is as light to You. –Ps 139:11-12

So if you find yourself in a dark place today, take heart, the Lord Jesus makes a way where there is no way. He cares for those who belong to Him. He leads His own out of the darkness into the light of dawn, into the rising Son.

Rejoice! Seek the Son! Feel the Sonlight on your up turned face leading you out of the darkness of night into the light of the full day. The upright WILL behold His face!

Keep your face turned towards the sunshine
And the shadows will fall behind you.

Psalm 11:7   The LORD is righteous, He loves righteousness; The upright will behold His face.

Numbers 6:24-26   The LORD bless you, and keep you; the LORD make His face shine upon you and be gracious to you; the LORD turn His face towards you and give you peace.”

Psalm 112:4
Even in darkness light dawns{arises} for the upright,
For the gracious and compassionate and righteous one.

Proverbs 4:18
The path of the righteous is like the first gleam of dawn,
Shining ever brighter till the full light of day.

It’s only by the LORD’s grace, compassion and lovingkindness that we can stand upright before Him. Only when we have our faces turned toward the Son can we continue to walk uprightly on the path of righteousness.

The righteous & upright are commanded to rejoice and praise the LORD as they walk and stand! Rejoice and feel the Son shine rising on your up turned face! Let it fill you up!

Psalm 7:10   My shield is God Most High, who saves the upright in heart.

All you who are bowed down, weary, faint
Lift up your head to the Son
Lift up your heads, O you gates of praise. –Isa 60:18

Be glad in the LORD and rejoice, you righteous ones; And shout for joy, all you who are upright in heart. –Ps 32:11

Be lifted up!
Open the door for the King of glory to come in.

Lift up your heads, O you gates; be lifted up, you ancient doors, that the King of glory may come in. Who is He, this King of glory? The LORD Almighty— He is the King of glory.
Selah –Ps 24:9-10

For its only as you lift up your head
And keep your face turned towards the Son
That you will be strengthened and revived
Lifted up to stand upright.

Psalm 12:5    “Because of the devastation of the afflicted, because of the groaning of the needy, Now I will arise,” says the LORD; “I will set him in the safety for which he longs.”
