Oneta Ruth Hayes
For your delight with the Lord today, try personalizing Ps. 21:1-7 (below). You will have something like this:
I rejoice in your strength, Lord. How great is my joy in the victories you give! You have given me my heart’s desire and have not withheld the request of my lips. You came to greet me with rich blessings and placed a crown of pure gold on my head. I asked you for life, and you gave it to me – length of days, for ever and ever. Through the victories you gave, my glory is great; you have bestowed on me splendor and majesty. Surely you have granted me unending blessings and made me glad with the joy of your presence.
Okay, I haven’t really received a “kingly” crown of pure gold, or splendor or majesty. But in reality I have received strength, victories, heart’s desire, blessings, life, length of days, and the joy of his presence. And the touch of his hand on my head is so much more than a crown of gold.
1 The king rejoices in your strength, Lord.
How great is his joy in the victories you give!
2 You have granted him his heart’s desire
and have not withheld the request of his lips.[b]
3 You came to greet him with rich blessings
and placed a crown of pure gold on his head.
4 He asked you for life, and you gave it to him—
length of days, for ever and ever.
5 Through the victories you gave, his glory is great;
you have bestowed on him splendor and majesty.
6 Surely you have granted him unending blessings
and made him glad with the joy of your presence.
7 For the king trusts in the Lord;
through the unfailing love of the Most High
he will not be shaken.
Thanks to Bible Gateway for scripture.
Amen, Oneta! Personalize it and receive it. 🙂
God is no respecter of persons. The King/Me. That’s good.
So good, Oneta. 🙂
Beautiful. Thank you for this uplifting start to my day. Blessings!
It blesses my day when I start with Him. Sometimes I procrastinate to my sorrow.
