As we mature in following the ways of the LORD we become increasingly aware of the consequent peace that results. I have found ways to know more in this respect. With my HeartMath work there is a procedure in all its tools called heart focus. This is where you simply focus your feeling attention on your heart. As I do this I find a greater sensing of peace in the midst of my moments. It especially helps when I may be feeling stressed. However. when the intensity in my life is off doing this allows me in my more quieter moments to experience a greater sense of wholeness and spiritual communion. Try it for yourself and see how it may help in knowing and following the ways of the LORD.
Rest in the LORD are words that point to the experience of refreshment. I have found that as I turn to reading and considering something of the nature of the LORD like a psalm verse I come to rest in sweet peace. A peace that brings my heart and mind to a refreshing rest. Let’s continue to make the time to know that sweet peace of the LORD.
I love this verse especially in considering what it takes for our soul to be at ease. Ease where we find an enjoyment in the moments we have. Ease where we can allow things to pend while taking care of what needs taking care of in the immediate moment.
It is good to consider fear as reverence for the Lord and to know the consequent peace that comes along with positioning our consciousness in such a way.
Consider this verse in a quiet moment and open up to the wonderful ease that it brings.
Wonderful words here! The purity of the LORD is made evident in so many ways. The purity of a flower, the purity of the sun, the purity of a real conversation with a friend come to my mind as examples to acknowledge. Consider for yourself examples. As we do turn our significant attention to the purity of the LORD made manifest in so many ways we find ourselves knowing an ease and peace and pure joy. May we continue in this way.
Psalm 15 lays out how to abide in the LORD’s tabernacle and dwell in His holy hill.
Consider the following in the depth of your heart:
He that walketh uprightly.
He that worketh righteousness.
He that speaketh the truth in his heart.
He that backbiteth not with his tongue.
nor doeth evil to his neighbour,
nor taketh up a reproach against his neighbour,
nor putteth out his money to usury
nor taketh reward against the innocent.
I find these are great keys here to know more what it takes to constantly experience the joy and peace of abiding in the LORD’s tabernacle and dwelling in His holy hill.
As I consider the words, “my soul unto thee,” I sense coming into a conscious place that is above the morass of the present day world. It seems there is so much to fill our thoughts that pulls us here and there that we fail to know what it means simply to be present.
As I consider lifting up my soul unto the Lord something of peace and spaciousness dawns in my consciousness. At first the openness and spaciousness of this feeling feels in a way daunting or unfamiliar. And as I just continued to consider what it means to lift up my soul I found that I came to a conscious awareness of oneness. Oneness with all the living world. Here as I moved past the feeling of something unfamiliar I found myself at home.
My word today is to consider what it means to lift up your soul unto the Lord and to let something new be experienced something that actually gives you the experience of wonderful oneness with all the living world.
As we lift up our eyes to that which is whole and decent and real there is a communion with the spirit of our Lord. Here there is peace and an infilling of our soul that is enlightening. Let’s continue to lift up our eyes knowing a greater state of communion filled to overflowing extending the wholeness, decency and realness of the Lord.
As we orient to the Word there comes the experience of purity. Purity that brings also an experience of oneness. In this oneness comes a calm and a peace that puts things in perspective and gives coherent sequence to our lives.
Orienting to the Word of God takes an interest to come into oneness with it. I find reserving time in the evening before going to sleep and in the morning before I start my worldly day to be vital in knowing more of this communion. During these times immersing ourselves in that which we acknowledge to be of God allows for an increasing experience of oneness.
Take the time to know the purity of the Word. As we do we are gifted with something so wonderful as well as being in position to extend its wonderful influences into the world.
A perfect heart is a consideration that touches my heart. As I think about this I am moved to simply still my heart and mind. I am moved to come to rest in this moment that I may know more what this actually means. I find this is something that cannot be forced. As I pause in this way my soul is filled with what it means to have a perfect heart. I can feel a deep sense of gratefulness. Here I am in awe of allowing a perfect heart be set within my soul. Here I realize more what it means to walk within my house with a perfect heart. May my meditations open up your heart in knowing a deep sense of peace and gratefulness also.
