As we position our heart to understand a new and refreshed world opens up in our perspective. Here we can understand ourselves more as well as others we are with. Here we realize we are all in this world together that really what is good for me is what is good for another. As we realize it is our collective influence that matters most for the benefit of the WHOLE that we find our real place within it.
I love the phrasing of this psalm verse-“beautiful for situation—the joy of the whole earth—-mount Zion.”
Let’s pause and soak in the nature of these words. For here, the spirit of love opens a door to know the wonders of heaven.
Let’s live in this place of mount Zion…
If we really are inclined to do the LORD’s will on earth we will hear his direction with a shout with the sound of a trumpet. If we are willing to actually hear this call it will immediately upright ourselves in knowing what is required at hand. If we turn aside from this call we will find ourselves caved in and contracted in angst and fear. It really becomes our choice to live a life of strength and clarity as compared to a sad and contracted life.
Let’s hear the shout of God and the trumpet of the LORD knowing a sense of victory throughout our living days.
I find this a very comforting thought to realize that the LORD of Lords is with us and to have it phrased as the LORD of hosts. It makes us realize that each of us is actually a host. We are each designed to welcome to be a host.
Let’s consider how we can welcome those who enter our world—how we can be large and gracious and understanding with all in our world.
Let’s be the hosts we are designed to be true to the LORD of hosts. Here is fulfillment.
