A CARRIER OF GOD
A meditation of Psalm 42:1-2…
As the deer pants for streams of water, so my soul pants for you, my God. My soul thirsts for God, for the living God. When can I go and meet with God?
Honestly speaking, I have never sought ease in life, and principally, I’ve never needed honour from anyone, because I have always been secure in who I am and what I have.
What I love the most is the deep relationship and sweet communion with the Father. Every morning for the last 40 years this fellowship has been my secret and sacred space. I have jealously guarded this hidden area of mine during the day.
Today, I am ever so consciousness of a deep urgency in Heaven. I cannot just sit back and rest. The lost need hope and eternity.
Though my body gets older and slower than what It was 40 years ago, I am constrained from within to finish what I have to do. The work and labour of the Kingdom never stops, so in a way we must never stop, nor be unprepared. Like Paul said, “Be ready in season and out of season.”
So like water to a deer my soul literally pants with a deep longing ‘noise’ in my spirit.
The Father can hear these noises in me. So, He gently leads me daily to streams immeasurable.
I drink deep every morning and am sustained miraculously with that daily strength I need for every day.
But here’s a catch for you!
This ‘maskil’ written by the best singers and musicians in the Temple qualified the Kohathites to carry the ‘Ark of the Covenant’ on their shoulders.
When we deeply desire His Presence…then He will rest on our shoulders so we eventually become carriers of God that can see and hear Heaven daily.
Bless your hearts folks!
