“For the Kingship and the Kingdom are the Lord’s, and He is the ruler of all the nations
Psalm 23: 3
“He leads me in the paths of righteousness (- not because I’ve earned it, but) for His name’s sake”
“You anoint my head with oil”
from the Amplified Bible notes… “it was customary in hot climates to anoint the body with oil to protect it from excessive perspiration. When mixed with perfume, the oil imparted a delightfully refreshing and invigorating sensation. As the body, therefore, anointed with oil was refreshed, invigorated, and better fitted for action, (athletes), so the Lord would anoint His “sheep” with the Holy Spirit, Whom oil symbolizes, to fit them to engage more freely in His service and run in the way He directs – in heavenly fellowship with Him. ” I thought that was very cool!
“This is the generation of those who seek Him…”
“Let integrity and uprightness preserve me, for I wait for and expect You.”
“I will walk in integrity”
OH, I pray this is true… and that I would recognize the Spirit’s voice convicting me otherwise if not, and have the courage to admit and ask forgiveness if reconciliation is needed or offense was given.
