What glorious words! Having patience to wait on the Lord is essential especially when faced with a challenging situation. Sometimes it may take to wait just a little longer before something can be seen clearly for right action to be taken. Yes, let us wait on the Lord and know the gift of his strength and clear action.
MY FOOT STANDETH IN AN EVEN PLACE…
Our feet have been related to our understanding. As our understanding resides in an even place a place where there are not extremes a place where there is balanced understanding then we can view our worlds with perspective. A perspective that brings a balance in living.
LOOK UPON MINE AFFLICTION AND MY PAIN; AND FORGIVE ALL MY SINS (AS I FORGIVE ALL SINS)
Yes, God has the power to forgive sins provided we forgive. As we forgive ourselves for things we may have done and as we we forgive others for what they may have done then the power of God can go to work to address and alleviate the afflictions or pains we may have. The power is present for healing to occur. We just need to position ourselves so that power is received and given through us. As God looks upon us we need to look upon others. Remember we are made in the image and likeness of God to keep and dress His garden.
RECEIVE THE BLESSING FROM THE LORD
The blessings of the Lord are constantly being given to us. It is how we position ourselves that allows us to receive the blessings. Positioning ourselves relates an attitude or a “turning to the Lord.” When we turn to the Lord we are to have an attitude of reverence, humility and an openness that allows for the Lord to come into our hearts and minds. As we position ourselves in a right way we will know it. We will know an infilling as we keep a clear tranquil respectful space before the Lord. Simply by articulating words with care and respect for the Lord to the Lord we will create a space for the Lord to come and be received into our hearts and minds. As we do this we will know that we are receiving the blessings of the Lord. It is not a complicated thing and is readily available for those who turn rightly in reverence and respect.
