Psa 5:3 My voice shalt thou hear in the morning, O LORD; in the morning will I direct my prayer unto thee, and will look up.
Psa 5:4 For thou art not a God that hath pleasure in wickedness: neither shall evil dwell with thee.
Psa 5:7 But as for me, I will come into thy house in the multitude of thy mercy: and in thy fear will I worship toward thy holy temple.
Psa 5:8 Lead me, O LORD, in thy righteousness because of mine enemies; make thy way straight before my face.
Because God is good and not evil and His ways are the right ways to prosperity and goodness, I lift my sorry old soul up in prayer in the morning. Lord what do you want me to do today? His house is not a building with bill to keep the heat on. And it is not just a zoom meeting that has Internet problems. Nor and empty building shut down by the government or the CDC.
And it is not a temple in Isreal that needs to be rebuilt NOPE! NOPEI it is US! THE BODY OF THE LIVING CHRIST! I am in His house, His church and His Body all the time and anywhere I go!
Mat 16:18 And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter (a little rock), and upon this ROCK (Christ) I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.
Eph 1:22 And hath put all things under His feet, and gave Him to be the head over all things to the church,
Eph 1:23 Which is His body, the fulness of Him that filleth all in all.
I have come into the Body of Christ the House of God by His multitude of mercy when He sent His son to find me. I am home!
AND NO DEMON CAN CHANGE THAT! YOU CAN STAND ON THAT ROCKSOLID PROMISE!
Psa 5:11 But let all those that put their trust in thee rejoice: let them ever shout for joy, because thou defendest them: let them also that love thy name be joyful in thee.
If God says we may rejoice then we can because it is available to do. God is not telling us to be happy because if we don’t He is not Happy! God is Joy and he would not tell his children to rejoice if it was not possible. It is a promise! So Rejoice, you can and you have permission. Just Trust Him.
In Christ we are at Home with God and we can forever shout for Joy!
Psa 16:1[[Michtam of David.]] Preserve me, O God: for in thee do I put my trust.
Psa 16:5The LORD is the portion of mine inheritance and of my cup: thou maintainest my lot.
Psa 16:7I will bless the LORD, who hath given me counsel: my reins also instruct me in the night seasons.
Many a night I can not sleep but I don’t run to the pill cabinet, I pray. And when I do He gives counsel and instructs me with ideas in my mind. I get the sleep I need and the answers too. But naybe not the recommended 7 or 8 hours the pharmacy companies recommend. It is all good. Don’t trust them!
Psa 16:8I have set the LORD always before me: because he is at my right hand, I shall not be moved.
And when I keep the Lord as my first priority all things come in their time and I am on a steady, steady course forward. To my final destiny …Paradise.
Psa 16:9 Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoiceth: my flesh also shall rest in hope.
Many live a restless life because they fear what will come in a few years. But they have no hope of Eternal life! We do and for that hope we can rest. Our bodies and minds can always find rest from the fear of death. Once you can say that you do not fear death, what can scare you? Depression comes from disappointments and broken hopes. Mini hopes can come and go. But that is life in this world. Life in Eternity has a rock solid reason to hope and always be glad. We know that we are on a path towards home. We are passing through and life here is a vapor, a passing dream. Those who believe that this is all there is are busy grabbing and grabbing all the toys that they can to get more pleasure. But it fails, but we who have Hope are giving, giving, and giving.
Psa 16:10 For thou wilt not leave my soul in hell; neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption.
God rose His son from that grave two thousand years back and each and every believer too when we called on the Savior. Nothing can seperate us from our Fathers love.
Psa 16:11 Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore
When we walk with Him we are on the paths of life. When we are in His presence there is always a party! Wherever we are we can be with Him now. We can speak with Him in prayer and praise and realize that we are in His invisible Church, the Home of Our Daddy where there is fullness of Joy and blessing forever. We just need to get into His presence and run back to Him every time we find our selves out in the cold.
I have a little Mexican dog, Molly. She is destined like me to finish her days in cold Canada. Poor thing! She has to go out in the snow every morning to pee and poop. She has no fur! When I let her outside I am her Daddy. And she is not even my own seed, but my adopted daughter. We humans who believed are born again of Gods own seed, Christ, and we are really His children. When my dog is freezing, I stand at the door and watch to see that she did her business and then welcome her back as soon as I can get her into the warmth of our home. Some times when it is minus 20 outside I even go out and stand on the porch because I am so concerned about his little 8 pound fur baby. How much more would a parent who loves his own be there to welcome his children back every time they are out in the cold. How much more would God welcome his prodigal children back for a party when they are done pooping? I am sure God is a lot more loving that I am. But even my Chihuahua teaches me revelation.
