As we are interested to remain upright in all our circumstances especially those that may seem dark we are given the assurance that all will be well. In each moment we can choose to be upright letting whatever cycles and seasons work out for a greater light and glory to be known. Let us rest in the assurance of being upright.
“FOR THE LORD HATH DEALT BOUNTIFULLY WITH THEE.” If you think about this statement the “O my soul,”part is striking. Something more formative than our own earthly soul is calling to put our soul to rest. It has been said each of us has our own individual and unique Lord that actually bountifully animates us! Remember also that the Lord that animates our soul is a Lord of the LORD of Lords. As we consider the Oneness of God let us know there is something so solid, so real, so constant that the awareness of ourselves may come to rest in. This verse opens a door to the knowing of a greater peace in our temporal soul as well as the greater action of the working of God through us as we position ourselves to listen and attend to the callings of our Lord of the LORD. As we do so we may find that we are at rest in acting accordingly. May we know the following: RETURN UNTO THY REST AND THY ACTION, O MY SOUL.
As we upright and still our soul while opening to acknowledge a presence greater than our conscious awareness something of our beloved may come through ourselves. Another psalm verse written shortly after in 110 has the words, “in the beauties of holiness.” I love putting these two verses together “that thy beloved may be delivered—in the beauties of holiness.” As we still our soul in the beauties of holiness our beloved may be delivered. Our beloved which is real, large, integrated, worshipful, majestic, wonderful loves to find its way into expression. Let’s upright and still ourselves in that which is beautiful and whole that we may be filled full to overflowing letting our beloved outwardly bless all the earth through us.
As we mature and find confidences in our outer expression it becomes even more essential to fix our hearts in singing and giving praise unto the Lord. No matter what glory or just the opposite may be given to us as our hearts are so fixed the stage is set for increasing stability and our purpose to ever be so fulfilled. There is always more glory to be known ultimately for the glory of the Lord to shine all about.
