This is by far the shortest passage I’ve come across in my Bible Reading Challenge — just one psalm…and it only contains 3 verses. Yet what power and truth resides in these words:
1 How good and pleasant it is
when brothers live together in unity!2 It is like precious oil poured on the head,
running down on the beard,
running down on Aaron’s beard,
down upon the collar of his robes.
3 It is as if the dew of Hermon
were falling on Mount Zion.
For there the LORD bestows his blessing,
even life forevermore.
“Life forevermore” is what I’m thinking about tonight…that, and unity among brothers and sisters. Today over 60 people were baptized at the church we have been attending. I have seen many baptisms over the years, but never have I seen that many at one time! The pastor took the time to tell a little about each person, and I was moved to tears over and over again as I witnessed people dying to their old selves and being born to their new ones. What a celebration today was!
I have a special prayer request for a woman on the verge of becoming a believer. I do not need to use her name here in cyberspace because the Lord already knows to whom I am referring….we can call her Eve. If you are reading this blog and are a believer, will you stop what you are doing right now and pray for Eve? Satan knows she is on the verge and has been sending roadblocks in her path. I know that she will do great things for the Kingdom of God simply by virtue of the roadblocks. I’m talking serious roadblocks…like mediums and other demonic devices trying to speak lies into her heart. So pray with me now for “Eve,” that the Lord will protect her and bring her into His kingdom…
On that thought, we can all have unity and pray for all the Eves and Adams out there who are on the verge of belief. Something inside them is stirring (Holy Spirit), and they want to respond…I pray that at this moment, they will surrender and let God speak to them. That they will relax and let Him rain grace and mercy all over their lives, so they can come to know first hand the words of Psalm 4:8:
I will both lay me down in peace, and sleep: for Thou, Lord, only makest me dwell in safety.
