Feast...any rich or abundant meal. As I read Psalm 37 this morning verse 3 really stirred me and got my attention.
Psalm 37:3 TPT
"Keep trusting in the Lord and do what is right in His eyes. Fix your heart on the promises of God and you will be secure, FEASTING on His faithfulness.", really stirred me and got my attention.
Two things really stuck out the most powerful to me.
As 2017 ended last night there was a beautiful time of worship together with the wonderful people I was honored to be with. One of the things shared was in regards to our hearts and that what we do from the heart releases a sound towards our Father. It was so beautiful seeing it this way...when His characteristics emerge from within our own hearts it makes a beautiful sound towards our heavenly Father and towards the lives around us. When we are doing things not of Him from our heart it releases a not so beautiful sound. So what it comes down to really is a daily inner questioning for each of us...what sound is my heart making today? How is His truth radiating from my heart towards Him...and towards the lives around me? I couldn't remember the Scripture that was mentioned lastnight about the sound of your heart, but I came across this one:
Psalm 51:6 AMPC
Behold, You desire truth in the inner being; make me therefore to know wisdom in my inmost heart.
To me this truly reflects how one allows for the beautiful noise to be released from our inner hearts. God wants truth to be reflected from within us...wisdom is what causes our heart to release the beautiful sound. When we know His wisdom, we begin to walk, live...do as Wisdom has taught us. True wisdom from above causes you to walk in a beautiful sound...
So then as I am reading Psalm 37 this morning the word feast just stood completely out to me...when we feast on His Word it is getting planted into our spirits, but also released out of our hearts...the more we take of the feast, the rich abundant meal....we are fine tuning--producing--a sound that only comes from Him from within us. When a sound is released...there are waveforms that occur...so soundwaves have the capability to push back things that may be coming at the center of where the sound is being released.
So as I saw this verse, Holy Spirit quickly took me to Psalm 23:5 AMPC, "You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil; my [brimming] cup runs over." When we sit at the table...the feast that is set before us at this table has everything you need to take down every enemy that is trying to come at you. When you sit at the table you are face to face with Him and every bit of what you need to defeat every lie, torment, wrong or anything else that sets itself against Him is there awaiting you to grab ahold of and eat. Once eaten, then you can rise up and walk in freedom...what was trying to come at you has no chance against the power of the soundwaves that are being released by the wisdom from within your heart.
So come, sit and look into the wonderful eyes of our Lord...have your face to face encounter with Him, then eat from the abubdant, rich spread set before you...and then rise up, walk in freedom and see every enemy that has tried to come at you fall down in defeat right before you! Walk in your victory and see what the beautiful sound from within does when it is released from your heart.
