Surely goodness and lovingkindness will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever. Psalm 23:6.
Today your LORD (יהוה) God (אלהים) says:
Your inheritance is forever, and it just gets better and better, bigger and bigger, brighter and brighter, and more and more delightful as you proceed forward in your spiritual growth, which never ends.
Therefore we do not lose heart, but though our outer man is decaying, yet our inner man is being renewed day by day. For momentary, light affliction is producing for us an eternal weight of glory far beyond all comparison, while we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen; for the things which are seen are temporal, but the things which are not seen are eternal. 2 Corinthians 4:16-18.
There are always new heights and depths in Me. Revelation is unfolding always and it never ends, there are unceasing delights at My right hand where you are seated in Christ forever.
You will make known to me the path of life; in Your presence is fullness of joy; in Your right hand there are pleasures forever. Psalm 16:11.
And even now, at every moment of your day and night, as you learn My Ways and how to let My Word go to work in you and for you, your life will reach new levels of provision, blessing, and joy! But above all you will rest in knowing you will always have the best.
I make all things work together for good for you who love Me and are called according to your purpose. If you are willing and obey you will have the good things and perfect gifts that issue forth from in Me, coming down from your Father of lights, there is no darkness or turning away from you in Me.
My goodness is flowing and shining down on everyone, just as no one is left out from the sun that shines upon the earth or upon the showers upon the places where they fall, but some pick it up and receive it, while others ward it off and keep it at arm’s length. They just do not connect.
If you want to harness the sun’s power for solar heating, you must have up the proper receptors and solar panels. If you want to pick up television signals and receive the programing into your home, you must have an antenna or other receptor that will catch those signals. If you want to catch rainwater you must have the proper containers and systems to retain it. It is the same with My blessings, creative ideas and inventions, solutions, provision—you must have your spiritual antennas up constantly and have an open heart to Me of faith. Remember that hard hearts to His Words and works grieved My Son more than anything else. Hearts hardened to Me in rebellion cannot receive the goodness that is constantly flowing from Me to you. From My realm to yours. Remember that the people who came with faith to Jesus just wanted so much to touch Him and My power flowed out and healed them. The same was later true of Peter and Paul. They had become so full of Me it had to be shared. Even those that got in Peter’s shadow as he walked along got healed. Wonder working power.
You just must learn how to ask and receive in everything. Many times, you have not because you ask not. People are just not used to the kind of love I have for each and every one of you and so they do not live their lives resting in that blessed assurance of My provision in every area of your life. And I do not mean only in major events but in every little detail of your life all day and all night, every day and every night. I am interested in taking care of you in every detail of your life.
I love you and I desire to care and provide for you. Not just in Heaven, but at every moment of your life, every moment of your existence, from its beginning throughout eternity.
Very few even begin to tap into the wellspring of My goodness. Taste and see My goodness, happy are you who take refuge in Me. And t is a place that is yours forever.
Please understand this, for it is hard for you to grasp for everything in the temporal as you know it since the fall of Adam into sin so that death and corruption came into the earthly realm, has a beginning and an end. There is an ending point when the good-bye seems final. But the wonderful thing about your inheritance is that with Me it is eternal, which with your limitations in the flesh it is hard to grasp, and yet it is easy for your spirit, for I have put eternity in every person’s heart. Like the migration call that will impel amazing strength and direction into butterflies and birds across miles and miles to a resting place.
He has made everything appropriate in its time. He has also set eternity in their heart, yet so that man will not find out the work which God has done from the beginning even to the end. Ecclesiastes 3:11.
As I told Moses and My covenant people, if you will just hear My Words and do them, that is, take Me at My Word and do as I tell you to do to have what My Word says you have, all My blessings will chase you down and overwhelm you. Goodness and lovingkindness will pursue you all the days of your life and I will be delighted to be with you and keep you forever in My beautiful home.
Just ask and you shall receive. Come with confidence to My throne of grace and find health, hope, and healing, in a world that has called the curse, blessed, and the blessed and find
Receiving an inheritance is a blessing and people long to receive an earthly inheritance that will keep them well supplied and in comfort for years ahead. Earthly treasures last but for a season. An inheritance in this life is fleeting. And yet families will fight over an inheritance as if it were forever. It may last for awhile, even many years, but eventually it will be gone and certainly you cannot take it with you past death. That is the way it is with earthly goods, if you do not use them to obtain heavenly rewards, and you do not know when your life will be required of you.
But God said to him, ‘You fool! This very night your soul is required of you; and now who will own what you have prepared?’ So is the man who stores up treasure for himself, and is not rich toward God.” Luke 12:20-21.
In Psalm 33 it is written that “The counsel (advice) of the LORD (יהוה) stands forever, the plans of His heart from generation to generation.” Psalm 33:11. The word that is translated there as “plans” is “machshevot”, which means thoughts, devices, designs. It is the same word I used when I spoke to Jeremiah about My plans (machsehvot) for you. For I know the plans that I have for you, plans for your shalom and not for evil to give you a future and a hope. Jeremiah 29:11.
The plans of My heart from generation to generation are for your shalom and not evil, for a future and a hope (tikvah). And hope does not disappoint. I have a good plan for you. And it is forever. And it goes down your generations. Like My plan did for Abraham. The father of many nations; and all peoples of the world were blessed by him and his descendant, Jesus according to the flesh.
I bring evil plans to naught, I foil the plans of the nations; I thwart the purposes of the people but My plans are forever. A way may seem right to a man in his own eyes but it ends in death. Make sure you get My input (counsel, advice) for it stands forever, before you enter a new venture, or even just continue with an old one.
Do not lean on your own understanding but lean on Mine. I have given you the gift of the Holy Spirit when you believe in Him and receive Him as your LORD. And He is in you and with you forever.
“If you love Me, you will keep My commandments. I will ask the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may be with you forever; that is the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it does not see Him or know Him, but you know Him because He abides with you and will be in you.” John 14:15-17.
You have one who can teach you all things, guide you to all truth, and tell you of the things to come resident in your spirit. Why are you acting so confused? Get in touch with the Holy Spirit. And the way you do that is by praying without ceasing to Me. And I speak to you in your spirit by My Spirit. And He knows My deepest thoughts. Think BIG (beautiful in God). And I lead you by Him and He is your counselor. And He is with you and in you always.
And today I would like to share Psalm 33 with you in its entirety for it has much to tell you. You would do well to make it your own prayer and song. Meditate on it and say it out loud and then let Me speak to your heart. And do what it advises you to do. Sing when I tell you to do so, give thanks, and shout. It is becoming to you. Good for you. Life to you and health to all your flesh. Proverbs 4:22.
“Sing for joy with the LORD, O you righteous ones; praise is becoming to the upright. Give thanks to the LORD with the lyre; sing praises to Him with a harp of ten strings. Sing to Him a new song; play skillfully with a shout of joy. For the word of the LORD is upright, and all His work is done in faithfulness. He loves righteousness and justice; the earth is full of the lovingkindness of the LORD. By the word of the LORD the heavens were made, and by the breath of His mouth all their host. He gathers the waters of the sea together as a heap; He lays up the deeps in storehouses. Let all the earth fear the LORD; let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of Him. For He spoke, and it was done; He commanded, and it stood fast. The LORD nullifies the counsel of the nations; He frustrates the plans of the peoples. The counsel of the LORD stands forever, the plans of His heart from generation to generation. Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD, the people whom He has chosen for His own inheritance. The LORD looks from heaven; He sees all the sons of men; from His dwelling place He looks out on all the inhabitants of the earth, He who fashions the hearts of them all, He who understands all their works. The king is not saved by a mighty army; a warrior is not delivered by great strength. A horse is a false hope for victory; nor does it deliver anyone by its great strength. Behold, the eye of the LORD is on those who fear Him, on those who hope for His lovingkindness, to deliver their soul from death and to keep them alive in famine. Our soul waits for the LORD; He is our help and our shield. For our heart rejoices in Him, because we trust in His holy name. Let Your lovingkindness, O LORD, be upon us, because we have hoped in You.” Selah.
David knew two things about Me that he focused on and never wavered from no matter what happened to him, no matter how bad it seemed. And it was these: First that I am good, nothing but good. And second, that My love and mercy endure forever. And he lived out those two truths all the days of his life. And they were what sustained him in constant joy and well being, both in good times and in bad. When everything went his way and when everything seemed lost and gone he never changed his good opinion of Me. Remember Ziklag? 1 Samuel 30.
Do you want to know the sum total of all theology about Me? The LORD is good and His merciful love (chesed) endures forever.
When you know and believe those two eternal truths, My glory comes down, which is the manifestation of My goodness, and miracles can flow.
When Solomon brought the Ark to the Holy of Holies in the huge temple he built according to the plans his father David had left for him along with the funds necessary to build the magnificent structure, he knew to have music, but with a very particular theme.
All the Levites who were musicians—Asaph, Heman, Jeduthun and their sons and relatives—stood on the east side of the altar, dressed in fine linen and playing cymbals, harps and lyres. They were accompanied by 120 (remember, I appointed man’s years to be 120 on earth) priests sounding trumpets. The trumpeters and musicians joined in unison to give praise and thanks to Me, YHWH. Accompanied by trumpets, cymbals and other instruments, the singers raised their voices in praise and sang: “Give thanks to the LORD for He is good; His love endures forever.” 2 Chronicles 5:12-13.
Then the temple was filled with the cloud, and the priests could no longer stand, they fell to the floor, and could not perform their service because of the cloud, for My glory filled the temple. When the Israelites sang “Give thanks to the LORD for He is good, His love endures forever” My glory came down. The same happened for Jehoshaphat and the people of Judah (the tribe born in yadah praise) when attacked by three enemy armies. When they marched out with the singers in front singing, “Give thanks to the LORD for He is good, His love endures forever,” I rent the Heavens and came down and delivered them from all three armies so that not one enemy remained against them. I turned the weapons formed against them back on their foes.
Build your lives on these two truths: First that I am good. Every good and perfect gift comes from Me. There is no darkness in Me, only light, and light produces every form of goodness. I am your healer, your provider, your victory, your peace, your righteousness, your holiness, your shepherd, and your redeemer. Believe that and let Me manifest as such in your life. You can rest if blessed assurance that I will take care of you at all times.
Second, My loving mercy and grace endure forever. I have placed all your sins on Jesus and I see you standing before Me clothed in all the glory of the finished work of Christ. Before Jesus died on the cross, you could not stand before Me as righteous and holy in My sight. Under the law it was your keeping of the commandments upon which your righteousness was based and that could change every day. Under the law no man is righteous in My sight, for on your own without being born again, you are a sinner born of the corruptible seed of Adam’s line sold into the slavery of sin and death. And My pure eyes cannot look on sin for I am love. I am love but I am also just. To be love I must be just. I cannot permit evil in My Kingdom or before Me. Justice will not allow evil in My Kingdom if I truly love you. But I have judged your sins in Jesus and satisfied My justice so that you can stand before Me washed in His blood. It is by His blood that you can stand before Me blameless.
By His blood you have been redeemed. And this is the gospel proclamation: that in Jesus you have forgiveness of sins for all who believe and you are made righteous by His blood of all the things you could not be made righteous of under the law. Acts 13:38-39.
Every time you focus your mind on My goodness and grace, you are blessed. My glory will come down to you, which is the manifestation of My goodness in your life and the lives of those around you.
Grace gives life. The law kills. Have you moved from law to grace? I have changed mountains, I am no longer on Mt. Sinai, I have moved to Mt. Zion.
For now, when you come to Me in Jesus you have not come to Mt. Sinai but to Mount Zion, to My city, the heavenly Jerusalem. You have come to thousands upon thousands of angels in joyful assembly, to the church of the firstborn, whose names are written in heaven. You have come to Me, the just Judge of all, to the spirits of the righteous made perfect, to Jesus the mediator of a new covenant, and to the sprinkled blood that speaks a better word than the blood of Abel. Hebrews 12:22-24.
And Jesus blood is still speaking today for it is eternal and it is before Me in Heaven now. Your salvation is forever. And what does it say? I tell you it is speaking better things than that of the blood of Abel. The blood of Abel cried out from the soil to Me for vengeance and judgment, but the blood of Jesus cries out for mercy and forgiveness from the mercy seat in My throne room. And the blood of Jesus is eternal. Your forgiveness is eternal. For when Jesus ascended back to Me, He came bringing His precious blood to Heaven to put on the true mercy seat in the Holy of Holies upon which the earthly tabernacle where the blood of lambs and bulls was offered as a temporary covering for sin every year was fashioned.
Do not reject the voice of My Son’s blood. See to it that you do not refuse Him who speaks. Hebrews 12:25. Believe that you are redeemed by His blood and cleansed from all sin. You are no longer a sinner but a saint by the blood of My Son shed for you. His blood seals the New Covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins. Matthew 26:27-28. Never despise or underestimate the blood. It cost My Son so much to shed it for you. Do not say you are a sinner any longer. Do not refuse Him who speaks. He made you righteous with My own righteousness and there is no sin in Me.
I love you. Know that I am good, you have nothing to fear, and that My love, mercy and grace for you endure forever. They are eternal and never change. I am the same yesterday, today and forever. I will never leave you or forsake you. Please return that same faithfulness to Me. Two hearts as one forever. Forever we will sing.
