Joyous Satisfaction

Satisfy us in the morning with Your graciousness, That we may sing for joy and rejoice all our days.
Psalms 90:14 NASB

Do you have an established time each day when you set aside time to spend with your Creator, Father, Savior? Oh to spend time in the early morning, experiencing His graciousness through prayer and His word. Sets the tone and focus for the entire day.

With our focus on God we enjoy His leading. . .

Send out Your light and Your truth, they shall lead me; They shall bring me to Your holy hill And to Your dwelling places.
Psalms 43:3 NASB

But know that the Lord has set apart the godly person for Himself; The Lord hears when I call to Him.
Psalms 4:3 NASB

My soul longed and even yearned for the courtyards of the Lord ; My heart and my flesh sing for joy to the living God.
Psalms 84:2 NASB

There is a river whose streams make the city of God happy, The holy dwelling places of the Most High.  God is in the midst of her, she will not be moved; God will help her when morning dawns.
Psalms 46:4‭-‬5 NASB

🌹Sing for joy in the Lord, you righteous ones; Praise is becoming to the upright.
Psalms 33:1 NASB

Attention to the Word

One who pays attention to the word will find good, And blessed is one who trusts in the Lord.
Proverbs 16:20 NASB

Taste and see that the Lord is good; How blessed is the man who takes refuge in Him!
Psalms 34:8 NASB

🌹Trust in the Lord with all your heart And do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He will make your paths straight.

Tablet of Your Heart

Our soul waits for the Lord; He is our help and our shield. 
For our heart rejoices in Him, Because we trust in His holy name.
Let Your lovingkindness, O Lord, be upon us, According as we have hoped in You.
Psalms 33:21-‬22 NASB

Scripture is a great place to learn to pray. God’s timeless word that expands many generations. God’s words spoken back to Him from the mouth of His children.

Personalizing God’s word back to Him, the One who wrote it, is a good way to “write it on the tablet of your heart”.

Do not let kindness and truth leave you; Bind them around your neck, Write them on the tablet of your heart.
Proverbs 3:13 NASB

🌹Prayer: My soul waits for You, Lord; You are my help and my shield. My heart rejoices in You, God, because I trust in Your holy name. Let Your lovingkindness, O Lord, be upon me, according as I have hoped in You.

In Your holy name I pray, amen.

Have a blessed day in the Lord.

Walking in the Light of Life

Behold, the eye of the Lord is on those who fear Him, On those who wait for His faithfulness, 
To rescue their soul from death And to keep them alive in famine.
Psalms 33:18-19 NASB

The eyes of the Lord are toward the righteous, And His ears are toward their cry for help.
Psalms 34:15 NASB

For the Lord takes pleasure in His people; He will glorify the lowly with salvation.
Psalms 149:4 NASB

The Lord favors those who fear Him, Those who wait for His faithfulness.
Psalms 147:11 NASB

For You have saved my soul from death,  Indeed (have You not delivered) my feet from stumbling, So that I may walk before God In the light of the living (or life).
Psalms 56:13 NASB

🌹Oh the blessings of waiting for God’s faithfulness.

Counsel

Why are the nations in an uproar And the peoples devising a vain thing?  The kings of the earth take their stand And the rulers take counsel together Against the Lord and against His Anointed,”
Psalms 2:1‭-‬2 NASB

The Lord nullifies the counsel of the nations; He frustrates the plans of the peoples.

The counsel of the Lord stands forever, The plans of His heart from generation to generation.

Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord, The people whom He has chosen for His own inheritance.
Psalms 33:10-‬12 NASB

🌹With whose counsel* do you stand?

Lord may our hearts always seek Your counsel over any other and the plans of Your heart. Amen

*counsel: advice; opinion or instruction given in directing the judgment or conduct of another.

He Spoke

By the word of the Lord the heavens were made, And by the breath of His mouth all their host. 
He gathers the waters of the sea together as a heap; He lays up the deeps in storehouses.  Let all the earth fear the Lord;
Let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of Him.
For He spoke, and it was done; He commanded, and it stood fast.
Psalms 33:6‭-‬9 NASB

🌹By His word, one breath. . . Do you stand in awe and shear reverence of God? He spoke. . . Done. His commands stand still today.

God, today may we stand in awe of You and the brilliant God You are. To You be the glory for the things You have done! Praise You for the things You are still doing!

Jesus in You

And even when I am old and gray, O God, do not forsake me, Until I declare Your strength to this generation, Your power to all who are to come.
Psalms 71:18 NASB

We are needed now more than ever to stand on the truth of God and spread the power of God to all, to declare His strength to this generation!

Let this be our banner cry:

We will not conceal them from their children, But tell to the generation to come the praises of the Lord, And His strength and His wondrous works that He has done. 

That the generation to come might know, even the children yet to be born,
That they may arise and tell them to their children,

That they should put their confidence in God And not forget the works of God, But keep His commandments,
Psalms 78:4‭, ‬6‭-‬7 NASB

🌹Where is your confidence? Do others see and know who your confidence is in? Do others see and hear Jesus in you?

🎶 Let others see Jesus in you,
Let others see Jesus in you.
Keep telling the story, be faithful and true;
Let others see Jesus in you.

Then live for Christ both day and night,
Be faithful, be brave and true,
and lead the lost to life and Christ.
Let others see Jesus in you.

Continually Seeking Him,

Sharon

Keep the Word

Oh that my ways may be established (steadfast) To keep (obey)Your statutes (decrees, laws)!  Then I shall not be ashamed When I look upon all Your commandments.
Psalms 119:5‭-‬6 NASB

How do we obey God’s statutes? When we know His commandments and keep them. How do we know them? You must open the word of God and read. Open the word of God and know. Then we obey them.

🌹 Jesus answered and said to him, “If anyone loves Me, he will keep My word; and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our abode with him.  He who does not love Me does not keep My words; and the word which you hear is not Mine, but the Father’s who sent Me.
John 14:23‭-‬24 NASB
