The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork./ Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night sheweth knowledge(vv.1-2)”.

How does the throne of God reveal the glory of God? Jesus said that man should not swear by it. What does it conjure up by literal approach other than a throne, a museum piece?  God is a Spirit and his throne is consequently something else. It is where Power and Wisdom of a triune God reside as one, indicating that there is no schism among the three. Without caring to put yourself completely under it is a fool’s business to mention things that cannot be understood (Matt.5:34). The throne represents God. In other words it is used figuratively as the seat of Power and Wisdom.

What does a wise king do? “A king that sitteth in the throne of judgment scattereth away all…

But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly(Matt.6:6)”.

We had hitherto meditated upon the Psalms as the heart of the Scripture, which is not about nations, but fellowship every creation holds with the Creator.  Our concern is as a man and not for enquiring into other creatures. Our meditation is on the basis of aligning our thoughts, emotions as well as actions as revealed to us by the Word made flesh.

The Word was God and as his ‘only begotten Son,-‘ so the synoptic gospels have broadly given us where our wisdom and power would come from. Not from the world. Had it been mandatory in Jesus’ time to carry passport his status would be as ‘refugee.’ However he as God-human gives us…

From the superscription of this Psalm we understand it is a song of deliverance. God delivered David from all his enemies especially from King Saul. In his victory he sings praise for every child of God whose victory shall similarly be from God. Full armour of God is represented by shield of salvation: “Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked (Ep.6:16)”. ‘Above all’ refers to other parts of divine armoury, which includes breastplate, helmet the sword and so on. Trust in positive outcome of warfare for any foot soldier signifies his morale. It is God who fights his battle. So the outcome of warfare rests in Him. Satan’s flame throwers spew hatred and malicious barrage, which as we read in the Vision of the woman clothed with the sun and moon under her feet (Re.12:15-16) is awesome:…

Mercy and goodness are what keep every child of God so he no matter through what difficulties which is the portion of the godly, may say with the Psalmist,”my heart shall rejoice in thy salvation(Ps.13:5).”Habakkuk also speaks of this.”Although the fig tree shall not blossom, neither shall fruit be in the vines; the labour of the olive shall fail, and the fields shall yield no meat; the flock shall be cut off from the fold, and there shall be no herd in the stalls:Yet I will rejoice in the LORD, I will joy in the God of my salvation(Hab.3:17-18)”. 

Our security is not that the wicked and the ungodly are spared of such turmoils that daily confront us but God did foreknow us. When we speak of our meditations and our world are locked into his Meditations salvation is the goal and for which Goodness of the Lord God has…

What does the eye of the Lord God represent? Samuel faults David for his foolishness. He says,”For the eyes of the LORD run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to shew himself strong in the behalf of them whose heart is perfect toward him. Eye of the Lord God is His Power and Wisdom transposed into visual terms so man may understand as optic of light before him: nothing is hidden. Eyelids try as in the following verse: “his eyes behold, his eyelids try, the children of men.(Ps.11:4) It signifies light of knowledge bringing motives of man to light by the Law of the Lord.

In this Psalm David prays thus “Keep me as the apple of the eye, hide me under the shadow of thy wings (v.8), The two wings are similar as eye lids but it is rendered in terms of man in his different circumstances…

In an earlier post we considered the Book of Psalms as the heart of the Bible, not withstanding the synoptic gospels. Of course without the Son who reconciled us to his Father our salvation would have been non-starter. Gospels give us 360° view of the Son of Man with regards to Father Son relationship as well as every believer. Rest of the books in varying degrees places our covenant by blood with regards to the Everlasting Covenant to the Lord Almighty whose throne is “In heaven: his eyes behold, his eyelids try, the children of men (Ps.11:4). The importance of the Psalms is its usefulness in our everyday lives as strangers and pilgrims ascending on the holy hill.

God is a Spirit and in accepting Jesus Christ as Savior we have been given indwelling Spirit.”At that day ye shall know that I am in my Father, and ye in me…

Psalm 14.

So far we have been considering what ‘communing with our heart’ would mean. It is a world in itself. So ‘with all our heart’ is in a manner of speaking sets us under the direct authority of the Sovereign Lord God. “The Lord is in his holy temple, the Lord‘s throne is in heaven: his eyes behold, his eyelids try, the children of men.(11:4)” This verse from Psalm 42 is with reference to me,  “…As the deer pants for streams of water, so my soul pants for you, my God./My soul thirsts for God, for the living God. When can I go and meet with God?(Ps.42:1-2)”

Here my soul indicates my inner man as distinct from my body that may be engaged in some household chores or attending to needful things in life.. It has its own language and my meditations in whichever case are on the…
