The Psalms—a mirror into my soul. A divine pathway into the presence of God. Songs ablaze; poetry aflame. Causing my spirit man to burn.
Psalm 23, The Good Shepherd. “The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want.” Do you know that the Hebrew word for shepherd can also be translated best friend? The Lord is always looking for those he can call friends.
Psalm 11, Song of the Steadfast. “And with a glance, his eyes examine every heart.” Do you know that the actual Hebrew word for eyes is eyelids? Some believe the eyelid symbolizes the lid of the ark of covenant, called the mercy seat. The Lord examines every heart with an eye of mercy.
Psalm 32, Forgiven. A poem written by King David after he had an affair with the wife of his most loyal soldier, then had him killed to try to keep her pregnancy a secret. Yet, God still calls David a man after his own heart. Forgiven & forgotten.
Today and always, may our wrap-around God surround you in favor and cover you under His canopy of kindness & joy.
Love & Peace.
