I Will Be Satisfied With Your Likeness In The Night

Today’s Word Of Encouragement From Wayne: “I will bless the Lord who has counseled me; indeed, my mind instructs me in the night. I have set the Lord continually before me; because He is at my right hand, I will not be shaken” Psalm 16:7-8 Praise God Who, through our indwelling Lord Jesus Christ, allows us to set Him continually before us, “in our hearts” (2 Corinthians 4:6), that we might behold Him at all times! Previously, I shared with you David’s words, “As for me, I shall behold Your face in righteousness; I will be satisfied with Your likeness when I awake’ (Psalm 17:15). Now in this verse, we see this same blessed truth being declared, of our beholding, or setting, the Lord before us

I Will Be Satisfied With Your Likeness When I Awake

Today’s Word Of Encouragement From Wayne: "As for me, I shall behold Your face in righteousness; I will be satisfied with Your likeness when I awake" Psalm 17:15 Ministering to the Lord on a regular basis, beholding God’s face in righteousness, allows and enables us to “be satisfied with Your likeness when I awake,” because ministering to the Lord keeps the likeness of God in the forefront of our minds. Because David beheld God’s face in righteousness on a regular basis, he was therefore blessed and enabled to “be satisfied with Your likeness when I awake.” Shouldn’t we all be blessed to say, and truly we are all blessed to genuinely say, first thing every single morning, “I am satisfied wit

As For Me, I Shall Behold Your Face

Today’s Word Of Encouragement From Wayne: “As for me, I shall behold Your face in righteousness; I will be satisfied with Your likeness when I awake” Psalm 17:15 How was it that David was able to behold God’s face? David was not asking. He did not say, “Oh please show me Your face God.” Instead David affirmed, “as for me, I shall behold Your face,” as if to say, “I don’t know what others want to behold but, “as for me, I shall behold Your face in righteousness.” David was experiencing this, regularly I believe, through the Spirit of the Living God. In ministering to the Lord, we behold the face of God. David had such a highly practiced life of ministering to the Lord in God’s presence that h

David Ministered To The Lord From An Early Age

Today’s Word Of Encouragement From Wayne: “Upon You I was cast from birth; You have been my God from my mother’s womb” Psalm 22:10 Perhaps being the youngest of eight sons was not so easy for David. Maybe, with such a large family, there was not much time or attention given to David. We know that when Samuel came to Jesse’s house, his seven sons, minus David, were ready for Samuel to see them, while David was left out in the fields with the sheep. David’s own testimony, from the 22nd Psalm, indicates that as far back as he could remember, he had been with the Lord, “Upon You I was cast from birth.” David may have, just like Samuel, begun ministering to the Lord from a young age. Samuel minis

Experiencing Renewal In God’s Presence

Today’s Word Of Encouragement From Wayne: “I will give thanks to the Lord with all my heart; I will tell of all Your wonders. I will be glad and exult in You; I will sing praise to Your name, O Most High” Psalm 9:1-2 Here is the basic premise of what we say in our ministering to the Lord. Just like David, we praise God “with all my heart” for Who He is and for what He has done. In future sharing from the Psalms, we will see that David would often list actual attributes of God, and the things God has done, as he praised God in His presence. “I will tell of all Your wonders” is our praising God for all that He has done. Truly, once we begin thanking our God for all He has done, the list become

A Word From David About Ministering To The Lord

Today’s Word Of Encouragement From Wayne: “But as for me, by Your abundant lovingkindness I will enter Your house, at Your holy temple I will bow in reverence for You. Let all who take refuge in You be glad, let them ever sing for joy; and may You shelter them, that those who love Your name may exult in You” Psalm 5:7,11 In this early Psalm of David’s, we see the heart of someone who not only practiced and understood ministering to the Lord, but who also desired for all to experience God in this way. Yes, today may “abundant lovingkindness” lead us all into “Your house,” “Your holy temple” O Lord. This is for us today because now, in the New Covenant of Jesus Christ, we have been made a prie

Receive The Anointing Which “Abides In You”

Today’s Word Of Encouragement From Wayne: “The Lord said, ‘ Arise, anoint him; for this is he.’ Then Samuel took the horn of oil and anointed him in the midst of his brothers; and the Spirit of the Lord came mightily upon David from that day forward” 1 Samuel 16:12-13 David was the one individual whom God had found, saying “This is he,”in all of His searching for “a man after His own heart” (1 Samuel 13:14). When Samuel anointed him, “the Spirit of the Lord came mightily upon David.” As new born children of God, we have been given the call of our priesthood (Revelation 1:5-6, 1Peter 2: 5-9), that we ourselves would be a people of God pursuing “after His own heart.” In his first letter, the a

Man Looks At The Outward Appearance, But The Lord Looks At The Heart

Today’s Word Of Encouragement From Wayne: “God sees not as man sees, for man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart” 1 Samuel 16:7 These are the words the Lord spoke to Samuel after he had arrived at the house of Jesse, where he had gone, following God’s word to him, in order to anoint the next king of Israel. When Samuel first entered and saw Jesse’s son, Eliab, He thought, “surely the Lord’s anointed is before him” (1 Samuel 16: 7), which provoked God to speak these words about how He sees things differently, from the heart. Jesse proceeded to show off seven sons to Samuel, and none of these were God’s anointed. Jesse obviously thought his youngest son, David, was

A Prophecy About Samuel, Jesus, and You!

Today’s Word Of Encouragement From Wayne: “But I will raise up for Myself a faithful priest who will do according to what is in My heart and in My soul; and he will walk before My anointed always” 1 Samuel 2:35 A prophet of God had spoken these words to Eli the priest, shortly before the Lord called to Samuel in the temple at night. The first meaning of this prophecy, I believe, is about Samuel, who was faithful to God and who did, during his life, walk before God’s anointed kings, being integral to God’s anointing of both Saul and David. The second meaning of this prophecy, I believe, is about our Savior, “Jesus, the apostle and high priest of our confession” (Hebrews 3:1), Who truly has do

Ministering To The Lord Is Taking The Time To Truly Hear God

Today’s Word Of Encouragement From Wayne: “Then the Lord came and stood and called as at other times, ‘Samuel! Samuel!’ And Samuel said, ‘Speak, for your servant is listening.’ The Lord said to Samuel, ‘Behold, I am about to do a thing in Israel at which both ears of everyone who hears it will tingle.’” 1 Samuel 3:10-11 God was telling little Samuel first, of a new thing that He was about to do, before He showed anyone else in all of Israel. Why? To me the big obvious conclusion is that Samuel, through ministering to the Lord, repeatedly showed God that he, in fact of practice, was the only one in Israel who was actually taking the time to truly hear God, for he was the only one drawing near
