||Written June, 2003--
How does one approach this subject from a scriptural position? This
statement is not found in the Bible and used to describe our LORD.
However, you find it pointed to in so many ways throughout
the Bible. As I sat down to write this several scriptures immediately
popped into my mind. It seems that there was a heavy concentration
in the Psalms as Psalm 1, 23, 19, 33, 34, 91, 100, 103, 119, and 150
came immediately to my heart along with Jeremiah 1:5.
1, my LORD who truly is More Precious Than Silver tells me how to
live a life that sets me apart specifically for HIS work. HE
desires to transform me from an everyday, ordinary, common man into
a fruit bearing child of GOD that delights in HIM and HIS word.
23, I find my LORD ever-present in my every day life leading me
into peace, prosperity and righteousness. Giving me HIS peace
that is beyond human understanding and helps me understand and appreciate
even HIS correction in my life. As well as assuring me that HE is
committed to meeting my every need as I walk hand in hand with HIM.
19, HE assures me that every single element of HIS creation bears
witness of HIM to me: of HIS existence, love, mercy, grace and reality.
This testimony that continually surrounds me is heard and seen by
all, though many deny it. My Precious LORD then assures me of the
completeness and character building qualities of HIS word. Hallelujah!
33, HE assures me that he has made the hearts of all men the same
way, with a place that can only be filled by HIM. And this includes
ME and YOU! Hallelujah! \o/
34, HE encourages me to bless, praise, and extol HIM at all times
and in every circumstance in my life. O taste and see
that the LORD is good, blessed is the man who trusts and takes refuge
in HIM. Hallelujah! \o/
91, I come to know the value of HIS protection and the security
under the shadow of HIS wings. Not only is HE my GOD, HE is
my salvation! Hallelujah! \o/
100, I am assured that HE alone is my creator. HE gives me the
opportunity, permission, and right to Praise HIM for making me all
that I am. Hallelujah! \o/
103, I learn of the completeness of HIS mercy and grace as he awakens
me to the truth of how far HE has separated me from my sins.
119, the LORD again assures me of the completeness of his word,
and the results in my heart, countenance, and actions, when HE alone
is my guide. Thy word is a lamp unto my feet and a light
unto my path. Hallelujah! \o/
150, the LORD assures every person on this earth past, present,
and future of their absolute freedom to praise, worship, and Exalt
HIM with Every breath. Hallelujah!
