Be Content

THEY WHO SEEK THE LORD: BE CONTENT

O fear the LORD, you His saints;
For to those who fear Him, there is no want.
The young lions do lack and suffer hunger;
But they who seek the LORD shall not be in want of any good thing.
Psalm 34:9-10

In every challenge and trial, we are rest assured the Lord shall give us contentment in the fullness of His Presence. As faithful children of God, we have the satisfaction of Him being near to us. As we press on this race in our life, we can surely know that the Lord will guide and lead us through every challenge we may face until we finally are taken to our heavenly home.

As we are full and content with the closeness of God, we can boldly proclaim, “Hallelujah! Praise The Lord! May Your Presence Be With Us As We Focus On You.”

Therefore, let us be like the Apostle Paul who said:

I have learned to be content in whatever circumstances I am.
Philippians 4:11

Psalm 34 (NKJV)
The Happiness of Those Who Trust in God

A Psalm of David when he pretended madness before Abimelech, who drove him away, and he departed.

34 I will bless the Lord at all times;
His praise shall continually be in my mouth.
2 My soul shall make its boast in the Lord;
The humble shall hear of it and be glad.
3 Oh, magnify the Lord with me,
And let us exalt His name together.

4 I sought the Lord, and He heard me,
And delivered me from all my fears.
5 They looked to Him and were radiant,
And their faces were not ashamed.
6 This poor man cried out, and the Lord heard him,
And saved him out of all his troubles.
7 The [a]angel of the Lord encamps all around those who fear Him,
And delivers them.

8 Oh, taste and see that the Lord is good;
Blessed is the man who trusts in Him!
9 Oh, fear the Lord, you His saints!
There is no [b]want to those who fear Him.
10 The young lions lack and suffer hunger;
But those who seek the Lord shall not lack any good thing.

11 Come, you children, listen to me;
I will teach you the fear of the Lord.
12 Who is the man who desires life,
And loves many days, that he may see good?
13 Keep your tongue from evil,
And your lips from speaking deceit.
14 Depart from evil and do good;
Seek peace and pursue it.

15 The eyes of the Lord are on the righteous,
And His ears are open to their cry.
16 The face of the Lord is against those who do evil,
To [c]cut off the remembrance of them from the earth.

17 The righteous cry out, and the Lord hears,
And delivers them out of all their troubles.
18 The Lord is near to those who have a broken heart,
And saves such as [d]have a contrite spirit.

19 Many are the afflictions of the righteous,
But the Lord delivers him out of them all.
20 He guards all his bones;
Not one of them is broken.
21 Evil shall slay the wicked,
And those who hate the righteous shall be [e]condemned.
22 The Lord redeems the soul of His servants,
And none of those who trust in Him shall be condemned.

Messages Hidden In Journals

I was given a prophetic word on 7-2-09 from the International House of Prayer in Kansas City, Missouri. She said that in my communion with the Lord, with intercession where reading the Word, I write down things, in my journal. I truly have journals upon journals. I nodded yes in affirmation. The woman said, “Okay.” I was reminded that this is very precious to the Lord. I write things down and then ponder it to the Lord and then pray it back to Him. This is very powerful communion with the Lord; really powerful intercession. Again, I was asked, “I just put it before you, if there are messages in your journals whether some of these messages will come together and be published.” I said, ” I have been praying about that”. Again she said, “Okay. Be published or get to speak them. I see this picture maybe you take your journals and are gathered around a group of people and you say, “I am going to share something. I want to read something from my journal and there are messages linked together.” She continued with, “It is like sometimes when people publish books they have a book reading or something like that it could be. That is the picture I get, so you have many messages that are hidden but people need to know them and it will get out.”

After Hagar wandered in the desert, the angel of the Lord appeared to her (Genesis 16:7-12). After his appearance She gave Yahweh this name saying, “You are the One who sees me.” The well at that place was named “Beer-lahai-ro, ” which means “Well Of The Living One Who Sees Me.” (Genesis 16:14)
[Strong’s Exhaustive Concordance]

Hagar = “Flight.”

El-Roi: The God Who Sees

I have been loved since childhood. Almighty God and I have been knit together in my mother’s womb. He saw it all. He is the El-Roi, “the God who sees.” He looks over me with such fondness, kindness and tenderness. He wants me to realize I am not alone.
