Love you all, praying for you!
God showing me something recently. Psalms 90:17 - May the favor of the LORD our God rest upon us; establish the work of our hands for us, establish the work of our hands. This Psalm was a prayer of Moses. Moses asked for God’s favor – because He was in the right position to receive it. May your favor – O LORD, our God – rest upon us. This is a great secret to God’s favor. You have to be in the right position to have His favor rest on you. Moses didn’t just call Him, The LORD God, Moses could call Him - the LORD our God, the One we are obeying! They had submitted to Him as LORD – So He was directing their steps, their activities – they were doing what God told them to do (PiVAT before dinner) not what they wanted to do (their PIVAT Maybe List) They were going in to occupy the territory God told them to occupy. There were battles ahead, rebuilding, planting, harvesting. The work of their hands was God directed – what He said, when He said, and how He said. Favor is not possible without it. God doesn’t grant favor in Tarsus, His favor is waiting for you in Nineveh. Favor often involves work. PiVAT before dinner will help you know what He wants you to do (He’ll tell you.) And PRISM throughout the day - when you soak in His WORD, you’ll get His mind, and receive instruction along with His direction. Then - you are positioned for His favor – and you can ask Him for it!
So interesting – the King James version of that verse says – May the beauty of the LORD our God be upon us… That word beauty – (no-am) means agreeableness, that is delight, splendor or grace. Moses was saying may the delight of the LORD be upon the work of our hands. May You be delighted with the work of our hands – so you pour out your beauty, splendor and grace on us - that power we need to do it! To have God be delighted with what we are doing – means we have to be doing what He told us to do. If we are – His favor will rest on us. Asking for God to be delighted – Moses was also asking Him to reveal anything that doesn’t delight Him. If we’re a little off, God please correct us, and we’ll do it. Let all of my work that you told me to do, delight you! Help me to do what you want me to do – in a way that delights you, and would you establish it. That word establish – means to set up, to render firm and prosperous – to make it successful! Praying for you – that God would always be the delight of your heart. That you would know what He wants for you to do - because you ask Him - you seek Him. If you are doing His will – you can ask him to be delighted with the work of your hands. There’s a difference between just obeying cause you have to – and wanting to do more than just obey him – you want to delight Him! He will show you how to delight Him – if you ask. And He will render sure and prosperous – the work of your hands - everything that He has for you to do. It will be for His glory – and He will make His delight – your delight.
