As we abide under the shadows of the wings of the LORD we know a sense of trust, of wonder and of joy.
How do we abide under the shadow of the LORD?First is giving heed to knowing that there is one individualized aspect of God who provides the apex point of control in which all others including you and me are focalized. That one is the Lord of Lords. As we accept this wonderful truth our lives begin to take on a new name offerring that which is coming from God out of heaven into the earth through us.
Abiding under the shadows of the wings of the LORD is acknowledging that there is a King that we all find centering in and that it is our love to do so. Here the shadow of the wings of the LORD really is a radiant shadow that fills our soul’s to overflowing.Here we then extend that radiance on earth through us providing warmth, security and love to all in our world.
Let us so abide.
This is an interesting verse to consider. At the time when it was said it was a call to the LORD to say unto the soul that made the statement. We can also consider it in a way that makes us think more about when we use the word “I.” “I” really is a most powerful word. When we think of ourself as an I what do we think who I is?
Is it someone scared, unfit, bad etc?If we do have such thoughts we need to take our response away from them. The reality is that each of us is a being of God. Here is our birthright and our responsibility to extend the influences of God on earth.
As we acknowledge that we are to be unified in and of the spirit of the LORD we can find how we blend and integrate with doing our integrated works on earth.
So when you use the word “I” consider what you are thinking and saying whether it is in line with who you really are. If not you will feel the off balance of not being true to yourself.
If what your are saying is in line you will be able to know what the words mean, “say unto my soul, I am thy salvation.”
Isn’t it good to acknowledge this statement? As we trust in Him we will not know desolation. Desolation is such a common experience in the world today. When the experience of desolation comes into our awareness it is good to stop and reorient to trust in the LORD. I find utilizing the HeartMath methods to come back into our rightful place to be very helpful in this regard.
First is to upright ourselves knowing as the psalms also state, “unto the upright there ariseth light in the darkness.” As we upright ourself and focus our feeling attention on our heart area physically and spiritually while breathing a little slower and deeper than usual begins the process of orienting back to our trust in the LORD. While we hold this upright breathing pattern and opening up to our love in the LORD perspective comes back into our view. We can see what is real and what is not. We can then put our feeling attention on that which matters and discount or cut off the unreal. What is real is that which fills our soul with love, that which is unreal tethers and drains. Here in a greater state of “heart coherence,” we can enjoy being in a place that fills our soul to overflowing. Here the experience of desolation dissolves as we know the joy and richness of being in our rightful place.
“According as we have hope in thee” can also be said as according as we have confidence in thee. As we do find confidence in the LORD we know HIS mercy. HIS mercy that has been given to us all through the ages since the fall of man. As we have the awareness of HIS mercy we are filled with love to overflowing. Here it is our love to let the LORD’s influence be restored on earth through the expression of our living. As we reawaken to our single minded focus to provide this influence our living is ordered up. Double-mindedness has been the cause of a living experience that has gone no where. It has caused an experience of a lack of fulfillment, tiring out living and a lack of confidence. As we make the choice to know and cultivate our heart and mind interest to provide the influences of the LORD on earth in a real and true way without imposition our living experience takes on a charge. A charge of life, of joy, of enthusiasm, of assurance, of serrendipity. Here we emanate the influences of LORD through the expression of our living easily, gracefully and perfectly.
Let’s continue in this central way.
