As we choose to be anointed of the LORD we know his strength. We choose to be anointed by simply keeping a thankful and grateful heart. As our heart is so clean the strength of LORD is known in and through our heart, mind and body. Let genuine thankfulness fill your soul and know the stength of the LORD.
I find this verse to remind us how to be in an even place when we are challenged by stress. To be in place of evenness is to be able to have perspective to know how to respond. An even place is a place where we are not treading towards getting knocked off balance and where we can see how to move forward in facing the challenges that present themselves in our lives. An even place where we abide blessing and glorifying the LORD in and through the moments of our living with all we are with.
As we love abiding in the spirits of appreciation, understanding, care, compassion and forgiveness we know the habitation of the house of the LORD. Here there is a natural honour that emanates from us as we honor the LORD in all that we think, say and do.
In addition as we so abide things we have done battle with within ourselves such as fears we may have had are dissipated by the cleansing nature of the LORD at work through ourselves. So often the things we may not like within ourselves we do battle with to try to get rid of all on our own in our own time which NEVER HAPPENS. This only creates a loop of wasted time and living. These things in addition to fear may relate to things we are ashamed of, or things we have hated or things we have wanted. As we acknowledge to “LET THE LORD DO THE WORKS,” through ourselves we can let go of the battle to try to get over these things. We can let the natural processes of cleansing the LORD can only do through ourselves occur as we simply abide in the habitation of his house. Here we choose to abide in the spirits of appreciation, understanding, care, compassion and forgiveness moment by moment, day by day.
As we revere the LORD the viel lifts giving us more awareness of the privilege of greater knowing along with greater responsibility. A responsibility we long to fulfill. We see more what matters to make our lives count.
