5 Why are you cast down, O my inner self? And why should you moan over me and be disquieted within me? Hope in God and wait expectantly for Him, for I shall yet praise Him, Who is the help of my [sad] countenance, and my God.

As the Deer

September 9, 2013

Psalm 42:1-2As the deer pants for streams of water, so my soul pants for you, O God. My soul thirsts for God, for the living God. When can I go and meet with God?

From NetBible Ps 42:1-2

  • The psalmist recalls how he once worshiped in the Lord’s temple, but laments that he is now oppressed by enemies in a foreign land.
  • pants[06165](with thirst)= to long for, to cry for
  • thirsts[06770] = parched, suffer dryness
    *A future thirst is coming due to the lack of hearing …
    “Behold, the days are coming,” says the Lord GOD, “That I will send a famine on the land, Not a famine of bread, Nor a thirst for water, But of hearing the words of the LORD. -Amos 8:11
  • “When can i go meet with God?” = When will I go and appear [to] the face of God- in His presence?

As the deer pants for the streams, O Lord
So my soul pants for You
How lovely is Your dwelling place, O LORD Almighty
My soul yearns, even faints for Your courts
My heart and my flesh cry out for You, the living God
O to sing for joy before my King Jesus!

How blessed are those who dwell in Your house! They are ever praising You. -Ps84:4

Better is one day in Your courts than a thousand elsewhere! -Ps84:10

As the deer, O LORD, my soul longs
Even faints for Your courts
O to dwell in the joy of Your presence -Ps 16:11,21:6,43:3-5,46:4
I long to be ever praising You
Jesus my King!
-Ps84

Psalm 43:3-5 NASB
3 O send out Your light and Your truth, let them lead me;
Let them bring me to Your holy hill
And to Your dwelling places.
4 Then I will go to the altar of God,
To God my exceeding joy;
And upon the lyre(harp) I shall praise You, O God, my God.
5 Why are you in despair, O my soul?
And why are you disturbed within me?
Hope in God, for I shall again praise Him,
The help of my countenance and my God.

God Will Make A Way

March 18, 2012

You may be enclosed in darkness right now
Unable to see a way forward.

Do not despair
BELIEVE
That you will see the goodness of the Lord
In the land of the living! -Ps 27:13

Take heart, don’t quit
Be brave and of good courage
And He will strengthen your heart
Wait, hope for and expect the Lord.
-Ps 27:14

God makes a way where there is no way!

Oh, how great is Your goodness, which You have laid up for those who fear, revere, and worship You, goodness which You have wrought for those who trust and take refuge in You before the sons of men! -Ps 31:19 AMP

Oh, send out Your light and Your truth!
Let them lead me;
Let them bring me to Your holy hill
And to Your tabernacle.
Then I will go to the altar of God,
To God my exceeding joy;
And on the harp I will praise You,
O God, my God.

Why are you cast down, O my soul?
And why are you disquieted within me?
Hope in God;
For I shall yet praise Him,
The help of my countenance and my God.
-Ps 43:3-5
