There is absolutely nothing that I have experienced that is more powerful, more healing or more peaceful than being graced with the awesome presence of our God Almighty.
When I say effort, I do not mean work. Although, left to myself I would have to work at the discipline of remaining in this place of faith and fulfillment. Isn’t that crazy? Crazy that it would be work to remain in such a place of peacefulness and restoration!
When I say effort, I mean my determined purpose to remain in the presence of my God, my Father, my Abba in all circumstances. I desire only His counsel, only His Word, only His direction…
O’ LORD this wonderful feeling of arrival has once again saturated my spirit, body and soul…I humbly thank You for this confirmation that my efforts are what would glorify Your Name!
So in this purpose I post this marvelous Psalm…O if I could only put it to music!
A Praise of David.
1 I will extol You, my God, O King;
And I will bless Your name forever and ever.
2 Every day I will bless You,
And I will praise Your name forever and ever.
3 Great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised;
And His greatness is unsearchable.
4 One generation shall praise Your works to another,
And shall declare Your mighty acts.
5 I[a] will meditate on the glorious splendor of Your majesty,
And on Your wondrous works.[b]
6 Men shall speak of the might of Your awesome acts,
And I will declare Your greatness.
7 They shall utter the memory of Your great goodness,
And shall sing of Your righteousness.
8 The LORD is gracious and full of compassion,
Slow to anger and great in mercy.
9 The LORD is good to all,
And His tender mercies are over all His works.
10 All Your works shall praise You, O LORD,
And Your saints shall bless You.
11 They shall speak of the glory of Your kingdom,
And talk of Your power,
12 To make known to the sons of men His mighty acts,
And the glorious majesty of His kingdom.
13 Your kingdom is an everlasting kingdom,
And Your dominion endures throughout all generations.[c]
14 The LORD upholds all who fall,
And raises up all who are bowed down.
15 The eyes of all look expectantly to You,
And You give them their food in due season.
16 You open Your hand
And satisfy the desire of every living thing.
17 The LORD is righteous in all His ways,
Gracious in all His works.
18 The LORD is near to all who call upon Him,
To all who call upon Him in truth.
19 He will fulfill the desire of those who fear Him;
He also will hear their cry and save them.
20 The LORD preserves all who love Him,
But all the wicked He will destroy.
21 My mouth shall speak the praise of the LORD,
And all flesh shall bless His holy name
Forever and ever.
