The Devotion: Psalm 16:11
Published on July 28, 2021
Another taste of a devotional woke up with this:
Good morning family,
I woke up this morning with the word running through my head…” “We are living proof of what holding on can do… keep praying! keep praying “
One of the beautiful things about worshiping The Lord through song is, that your brain registers the sound not only of the tune, but eventually the words will come to mind, or vice versa.
God knew how He formed every cell of our body as well as the brain knowing that if we would worship Him in the midst of our “whatever” His grace and mercy would see us through our time of trouble. The “songs of worship” would enable us to rise from the imprisonment of our own thoughts of stress and sorrow to God’s tabernacle of PRAISE!
When the scripture says to be “Thankful in all things”… I used to think it was saying…Lord, I thank you for my broken heart, or I thank you for my sickness and disease. But..a translation that I could better relate to (being I am four years “cancer-free”) is…
Father “I thank You that You are…My peace or You are my Healers, My Deliverer…
The Word of God tells us to enter His gates with Thanksgiving and into His courts with praise! So could it be we are worshiping our way into His presence where we will find Him…Jireh…The One Who is enough, and meets our every need?
I don’t know what your “whatever” is today, or how long you but I encourage you to…Keep praying and praising until your through to God’s sweet place of “peace” and even Joy!
Sometimes I weep while I worship, because I know I am in the presence of The Only One who knows the intimate places of my heart and mind…
You make known to me the path of life; in your presence, there is fullness of joy; at your right hand are pleasures forevermore.
U 4 U, Doc
