Psalms 128:1-2

Pondering Psalms 128:1-2

“Blessed is everyone who fears the LORD,

who walks in His ways!

You shall eat the fruit of the labor of your hands;

you shall be blessed, and it shall be well with you.”

My take: I have been focusings on Proverbs and Psalms for well over a year now. This ‘fear of the LORD’ is a common thread through both books. This call to fear is best summed up in our language and culture as RESPECT. In addition to respect, it conveys we are well served to obey, be in awe, admire, grasp His Holiness.

We should fear God as we might something awesome; like an armed fighter jet, a lion on the prowl, or a mama bear protecting her cubs or a loaded gun. CS Lewis nailed this when he penned in his book the Lion, the witch and the wardrobe, “Aslan is a lion- the Lion, the great Lion.” “Ooh” said Susan. “I’d thought he was a man. Is he-quite safe? I shall feel rather nervous about meeting a lion”…”Safe?” said Mr Beaver …”Who said anything about safe? ‘Course he isn’t safe. But he’s good. He’s the King, I tell you.” In the book Aslan represents Christ Jesus, God Himself.

Walking in God’s ways is quite an adventure. Have you ever read the book, Pilgrim’s Promise by Bunyon? It is a great tale of walking to find God and therefore walking with Him.

Here also in this passage, we read a promise of justice, sowing and reaping and reward for hard work and a greater one of just abiding, just walking God’s path. It says, “You shall eat the fruit of the labor of your hands; you shall be blessed, and it shall be well with you.” This doesn’t mean all the time, we will get everything we want and that our fickle hearts desire. But rather we will have what we need and God has got our backs. That’s a blessing indeed.

My prayer: Help me stay on track, to be on Your highway to Heaven. Buckle me into Your jet liner to the sky, traveling through the sky, space and to Heaven not too soon enough but nor late either. Until that amazing flight, keep me grounded in Your Word, walking on the one way path.

Kirk’s Review:

It was an sporadically funny, off beat comedy to the last part...then it became a shooting star!

What I really enjoyed about this show was its authenticity and the young girls focus into outer space along with her willingness to be creative and pivot to get what she wanted, and that is the best part even though things didn’t work out as she had hoped it all worked out well.

Says a lot about how teams and people should not try to copy each other and be the same but rather to highlight and utilize their God-given talent to its maximum.

I give it 4 of 5 stars and certainly worth a watch, enjoy and learn.

Growing up in the 70’s, it as also a blast from the past.

4 step outline to great story telling, preaching and selling.

Start slow, Go low, Rise higher, Catch fire!

1. Start slow (slow pace, soft, building rapport, overview… prior to ruminate, pray, prepare but start soon enough)

2. Go low (basics, simple, relatable, rich and deep storyline)

3. Rise higher (build pace, encouraging, great challenge)

4. Catch fire (fervant emotion, climax, hot white, victory)
