There is much contained here. It is good to consider the word presumptuous in the light of taking liberties that are not rightfully ours. The great transgression is eating from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil which is the cause of the fall of man. I find it good to consider the antonyms of presumptuous like humble, modest, unassuming and down to earth. May my words to today bring to heart more what it means to live consciously in a place that is humble and strengthening at the same time where we know our integrated place along with peace and sanity.
We are called in each moment to upright ourselves and know our integrity. This is the call of the Lord within ourselves that when honored and responded to causes our fulfillment to be known in each and every moment.
According to the integrity of his heart. What beautiful words! As I consider what these words mean I consider my world in light of them. I am moved to think about how I feed those in my world with the integrity of my heart. The integrity that uprights myself, the integrity that has the best interests of others at heart and the integrity that has the interests of the Lord at heart. As I view these thoughts I find I am in a place that is filled with peace and ease. In a place that is fulfilling that has its own rhythm. A place that allows an infilling of my soul paused in this moment to let something of peace and ease express through me. Here I sense a synchronicity with divine order. Here there is a fullness and an interest to fulfill my divine commission. As I take this moment to receive and appreciate it I am further moved to view my day and my life for the purposes of letting this place of integrity expand on earth. Here I invite you to share with me in the wonderful graciousness of this space enjoying divine synchronicity being filled to overflowing. As we know this overflowing through ourselves we look out upon our words with blessing eyes. Here we bless our world. Let’s continue to know what it means to be in place feeding our world according to the integrity of our heart.
As we stay upright we can act with wisdom knowing what is right and what is wrong. Here we can see things that may arise in ourselves that are of impropriety. And we can see it for the unworthiness that it is and choose rightly. Each us of is in the world to make straight the paths of the Lord. How that is done first is through ourselves without the need to point any fingers.
Psalm 15 has keys to abiding in the tabernacle and dwelling in the holy hill of God. As these things are done we shall never be moved out of the experience of excellence and high understanding. It worth the time to consider such matters as the following:
Honoring those who revere the Lord
Speaking the truth in our heart
Not putting our money out to usury
Not taking reward against the innocent
Not doing evil to our neighbor
Not taking up a reproach against our neighbor
Backbiting not with our tongue
The lowly are the humble and those that keep their honor. Their honor and integrity mean the most to those that are considered lowly in this verse. As we keep honoring the Lord through the integrity and honesty of our living the Lord does have respect for us. Respect that brings his abundant love and encouragement into our hearts and minds. Lowly does not mean graveling in the dirt for the sins we may commit. As we honestly view our actions and correct any misguided ways we may have we lift up our heads as the Lord would have us do and move on with our living knowing we are instantly forgiven and needed to carry on the work of increasing the name and influence of the Lord on earth. Let’s let our living be an example of honesty, honor and integrity as we have been uniquely designed to be.
It is good to look upon those in our world we acknowledge as faithful. Those that have kept their integrity and those that are looking to keep their integrity. For the latter it is also good to see how we can be of service to those who are calling out to be true to themselves. Let’s look how we can provide encouragement and inspiration for those in our world.
Permeated through out the healing verses the principles or foundations for our living experience are inherent within them. As we read the verses the underlying values and character of integrity and uprightness are well provided. As we appreciate these fundamental simplicities we become blended or harmonized with them. From here we can so experience them and be filled to overflowing to bless our worlds.
As we read the words of the Psalms contained within them is a call to find our purpose. A purpose that calls us to be upright and true. As we live with such integrity a sense of purpose infuses us day by day becoming clearer and clearer and stronger and stronger. If you feel like there is no purpose in life or that you may have lost your purpose the words contained in the Psalms can be starting points to reopen your awareness for the meaning of your being. There is a reason way you are here. Just follow the path that is given to you. One way that is given to all of us are the words given through the Psalms. Read them, as you do something of a feeling will begin to be recognized that brings your heart to rest and your mind to an awareness that you are here for a reason. This reason is to be shared with others. You have gifts of life to give to others. As you provide them you will know a greater sense of purpose. Do not let the down casting thoughts generated from the skewed imbalances of the world take sway within your heart and mind. Make a choice that regards the words, “until the upright there ariseth light in the darkness…” Hold steady and keep providing what you can for others!
In the psalms there is mention of the river of God. The river that provides the life flow for all of us to join with. In looking at a river we see that in the center of it there is a flow that moves onward with consistency and with a natural force effortless seemingly. How well are we participating in the center of our lives whereby there is this same consistency and natural and effortless flow? As we open our eyes to how we can participate in the central flow of our lives this can occur. This occurs when we simply acknowledge the people closest to us and in the situations we find ourselves where we can acknowledge the central part we play in participation with others. The central part that is ours alone in concert with others that provides the life flow through all the situations that we find ourselves in. Here is the glory of God increased on earth with us included!
