Living in God's Word
I would have despaired unless I had believed that I would see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living.
Wait for the Lord;
Be strong and let your heart take courage;
Yes, wait for the Lord. Psalm 27: 13- 14
He chooses our inheritance for us, Psalm 47:4
Is God teaching you to lean hard into Him? Losses have a way of crowding us to
Christ. Psalm 47:4 says: ‘He chooses our inheritance for us’!
Wow! Our Savior tends us with His loving kindness. We learn the sweetness of Him, the sufficiency of Him, the power of Him on our behalf. We do not have an enemy choosing our inheritance, but our loving Father who calls us to ‘Come’…
“Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest.” Matthew 11:27-29
“Being conscious of our own folly, we would not desire to rule over our own destinies. We feel much safer … when the Lord steers our vessel than we could possibly be if we could direct it according to our own judgment. Joyfully we leave … the unknown future with our Father, our Savior, our Comforter.” CHS
I have been living in Psalm 27 this past few weeks, especially verses 13-14. The truth of this chapter is profoundly stated in these last two verses. With out faith I would have despaired. Without His promises hope evades my heart. How blessed to be His child and know “As for God, His way is perfect; the word of the LORD is flawless. He is a shield for all who take refuge in Him. (Psalm 18:30 & 32) “It is God who arms me with strength and makes my way perfect!”
He chooses our inheritance. Let’s look at the definition of inheritance: something that one receives or is entitled to receive by succession. As from a parent.
He is our Abba. Our Papa! Look up and cry out ‘Papa, I need You.’ Picture your self, His beloved, climbing up on your Papa’s lap. He looks tenderly into your eyes as you snuggle into the safety of His pure and loving arms. Resting against His chest, you hear His heart beat the perfect rhythm of His love for you. Pulling His robe around you, He Hides You and gives You joyful rest. This is He who chooses your inheritance! There are no second causes. What He allows in your life, He plans to use in your life, for your good and His glory. Choose to trust Him. We walk by faith and not by feelings.
Take time to praise Him. The enemy hates to hear praise from our lips!
Come, everyone! Clap your hands!
Shout to God with joyful praise!
For the Lord Most High is awesome.
He is the great King of all the earth. Psalm 47: 1-2
Sing praises to God, sing praises;
sing praises to our King, sing praises.
For God is the King of all the earth;
sing to him a psalm of praise. Psalm 47:6-7
Father-God, You who love us more than we can ever understand and are filled with compassion toward us, we want to praise You! Bring forth praise through us Your Holy Spirit and fill me faith to walk to please You. Thank You for the Cross, for it make all the difference. You have chosen me and made me Your child and You choose my inheritance and I am so very thankful. I pray in my Savior name. amen
