The river of God continually flows abundant through all of nature. As a river flows there is a constant influence of God that causes the animation of all the living world including ourselves.
The problem has been we have been mired in eddy’s apart from the central flow. As we give ourselves to the flow of God we find ourselves playing our integrated parts and are infused by our participation in the whole.
We need to let go of that which has caused us to be moved aside, like things as holding on to past hurts or incriminating judgments of our own self and others.
As we do remove such interference’s we find ourselves flowing in the central current of things playing our glorious part’s in centrally glorifying the influence of the LORD on earth.
These words have made me take notice of them and have prompted me to consider them more. First, to be upright in heart I find means to acknowledge and enact the spirit of these words in my living. To be upright in heart means to give attention to that which actually makes me upright in heart. To give attention to the qualities of spirit that makes me remember what is most important. To give attention to that which acknowledges something higher than my conscious awareness. I find that orienting to attitudes of thankfulness and integrity it positions my conscious awareness to receive something of strength and love from I sense the source of myself.
Here I find a greater awareness of my reason for being in how my life expression can be of glory.
May my words touch something in you that you may know more of the glory of your own life expression.
As we receive into our conscious awareness the reason for our being we come to realize we are here to share in the One glory of the expression of the LORD on earth.
And here we know more of what the words actually mean, “And all the upright in heart shall glory.”
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 know how to abide in His tabernacle and dwell in His holy hill we realize what it takes to continue in this blessed place. Taking not advantage nor casting aspersions upon those in our world relate to not doing evil to our neighbour. Why choose to leave the space of experiencing the joy and peace of the Lord in favor of such things?
I have been realizing more and more that this choice depends on how well we condition ourselves to abide and dwell in this place. It takes something to do so. It takes attention especially in the evening and morning to spend time devoted to remembering and knowing our place. Our place of providing what we are to provide of the Lord for all in our world to know the joy and peace and glory of the Lord!
These words point to the reality that the Lord dwells in a designed place that is whole. As we still ourselves to know our place within this temple we come to a state of communion. Here we experience soundness and peace and glory and praise. Here we know ourselves as the light that we are as one.
Remembering it is not only by our own efforts that we are lifted up from challenging circumstances is vital. As we do acknowledge there is something greater than the awareness of ourself that actually animates us we open to a presence that can do the real work of lifting us up. Mainly what we have to do as a human soul is to position our capacities of heart mind and body for this to occur. How we position our soul is first realizing that this very moment of now is really what matters. This moment of now that we can emanate the light of love that is constantly expressing itself through all the natural world. As we open to allow the light of love to find expression through ourselves we are lifted up. The light of love is the truth of love of which we have been created for the greater glory to be known. Simply said let’s let the light of the LORD shine through us.
In opening up to the meaning of these words something large and magnificent can dawn in awareness how grand the name of the LORD is. Even though the meaning may be more than we can comprehend mentally let the feeling of opening up to this awareness fill our heart’s to overflowing. As it does the power and glory of these words can make itself evidence through the expression of our lives. Here we place our parts in extending the excellence of the name of the LORD on earth.
As we orient our minds and hearts to acknowledge the Name of the LORD as excellent it does not separate us rather it unites as one with the LORD as well as one with each other. Let’s lift up our heads in knowing the unifying glory of the LORD. Here is living EXCELLENCE!
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.
Glory dwells in our land as each of us is extending it through ourselves. Each of us is a point of specific and unique glory that fits and integrates with the glory of others. If we find we are at odds with another it is vital we look at what we are giving our responsive attention to. As we make the internal correction to give our full and perfect response to God and the things of God we find we return to the kingdom of heaven at hand. Here there is complete peace and the return to the extension of the true glory of ourselves.
