Good morning and happy thanksgiving!
If your traveling may Gods grace and mercy be with you.
Says the Lord is my shepherd I shall not want. How many times have we read or heard this scripture? My other question would be have we found the Lord and do we really know where the Lord resides? If you have found the Lord explain your experience to help someone else. The scripture that stuck out to me today is psalm 23:6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life; and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.
I couldn’t get away from asking myself where is the Lord when reading the psalm 23 today… I never take the word for granted as to know because of my past studying. I believe in coming to the word of God supping as a child to receive fresh revelation.
Furthermore in my mind to experience( which is and example of how I study) His goodness and mercy means to me I must have a relationship with Him in His presence. As I enter into His presence mentally I question myself, my life, my successes, my actions, and the hardships I’ve had as I read the entire psalm.
My thoughts took me to dwelling in the house of the Lord and not leaving for any reason psalm 23:6, psalm 91:1, because when I dwell in Him I’m not going in and out of Him, meaning living in His will and then my will at times. My will and Gods will are conflictual. My will tends to be natural and self absorbed, however Gods will has everything to do with the truth of who Iam, my purpose and destiny of what I’m in earth to fulfill, which means if I practice living in His dwelling my life can change in the areas I’ve fallen short. Never the less the question is still at hand… do I know where my Lord resides? While you think on this remember Luke 17:21 says, Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you. Meditate on this for the Keys of successful living are within you!
