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 means us, for now, in the New Covenant of Jesus Christ, we have been made a priesthood to our God, we have become a temple of His Spirit, and we are the place where God may now rest (Revelation 1: 5-6, 1 Corinthians 3: 16, Isaiah 66: 1-2).
Minister to your Lord with singing, see His sheltering presence over you, be glad, love His name, and exult in the Lord! When it comes to ministering to the Lord, it is always "by Your lovingkindness" that we enter His house. God’s love is the key that unlocks the door to your inner chamber, where you may come at all times, in reverence, singing, gladness, love, and exultation. Bless your Lord for He is so good, and receive the grace, the joy, of lingering in His presence. Hallelujah!
