This verse is found in psalm 77 and it starts with a word about considering “the days of old, the years of ancient times.” As a note to this meditation these words got me thinking that if and when these words were written and to us I gather we think that when the psalms were written they were the ancient times. However, if back then when this psalm was written and the psalmist was referring to ancient times then when would they be referring to? This brought to mind the time referred to as the Garden of Eden before the fall of man. As it is referenced later in this psalm by the words “the years of the right hand of the most high.” The time when divine order actually reigned on earth. I found as this dawned in my awareness I have been intrigued how spiritual discoveries are found in the light of the words, “I commune with my own heart: and my spirit made diligent search.”
I have been further drawn to consider the words “and my spirit made diligent search.” I have found as I meditate on these words they bring a greater sense of centering. I can see more clearly the spirits that present before my awareness in terms of seeing if they are destructive or constructive. From this awareness it has been easier to make more consistent choices to be aligned with that which increases the Name of the Lord on earth. Here are the essences and key to waxing strong in grace and stature.
