Psalms 33:20 “Our inner selves wait [earnestly] for the LORD; HE is our Help and our Shield!”
Got Rest? (Our Sovereign Watchman!)
The LORD is our Watchman and always has been; neither sleeping nor aimlessly gazing. Forever with hand on the helm of all things, by HIS pow’r and grace so amazing.
As such, it’s enough to trust solely in HIM; neither sharing nor stealing HIS stage. For we are CHRIST’s poems: the work of HIS hands! GOD’s inscriptions called man…on Life’s page!
So SAVIOUR, CREATOR and Watchman as well; HE continues to sovereignly lead us. Guiding, directing and endlessly loving…is HE WHO does all
these things — JESUS!
As HIServant thankful beyond words that I have been taught HIS glorious NAME,
Devotional: Psalms 121: A Song of Ascents.
“I lift up my eyes to the hills.
From where does my help come?
My help comes from the LORD,
WHO made heaven and earth!
HE will not let your foot be moved; HE WHO keeps you will not slumber. Behold, HE WHO keeps Israel (and all HIS children) will neither slumber nor sleep.
The LORD is your keeper; the LORD is your shade on your right hand. The sun shall not strike you by day, nor the moon by night.
The LORD will keep you from
all evil; HE will keep your life.
The LORD will keep your going out
and your coming in from this time
Psalms 33:21-22 “For in HIM does our heart rejoice, because we have trusted (relied on and been confident) in HIS Holy NAME. 22 Let YOUR mercy and loving-kindness, O LORD, be upon us, in proportion to our waiting and hoping for YOU.”
What fantastic words of hope for as HIS “poiema’s” or poems!
We are indeed the workmanship of HIS hands and HE watches us relentlessly for good, working all things together for our welfare, according to HIS sovereign standards.
Here is where we, speaking most of all to self, get our words and wires crossed.
We define with limited comprehension at best and then stand back and contemplate whether CHRIST is faithful or if HE has kept HIS word.
We cannot stand on the same stage as HE until HE draws us to Heaven. No human can claim a shared status with HIM on determining whether HE follows through.
There is only one wise GOD, our SAVIOUR. HE stands alone in authority and does all things according to HIS good pleasure and works all things together for our very good.
But do we REST in that truth?
In this hour, we see many demonic advances. The state of California is now trying to BAN the Bible. What?
Yes, make it a crime to share, speak of, print, witness etc. many signs both on the earth and in the Heavens point to the end of the Age of Grace.
But the GREATEST TRUTH we must rest in is that HE said these things would come to pass…and they are.
Is this foolish hype, embellishment or fear-mongering? In no way! RATHER!
This is so we “turn our eyes upon JESUS!” The AUTHOR and FINISHER of our Faith!
It is so that our focus is exclusively on what HE penned and not on our own human assessments…as if what we think is on par with what HE thinks.
Isaiah 55:8 “MY thoughts are nothing like your thoughts,” says the LORD. “And MY ways are far beyond anything you could imagine.”
So let us wholly trust our Sovereign SAVIOUR, CREATOR and WATCHMAN without any reservations!
For HE tells us to walk by Faith in HIM…not faith in ourselves.
HE is coming, be prepared! Shed your love of the temporal, earthly anchors which Self builds and gain the GREATEST feelings of Rest and Peace by casting all our cares upon HIM! (1 Peter 5:7)
Psalms 91:2 “I will say of the LORD, “HE is my REFUGE and my FORTRESS, my GOD, in WHOM (alone) I trust.”
Amen, Beloved, and amen!
