I love remembering the Lord Jesus on Sunday morning. What a precious, precious time! Yesterday the words of a song gripped me and blessed me and encouraged me! This morning I read this verse and the song came rushing to the forefront of my thinking.
Blessed is the man whom You chasten, O LORD,
Who is the happy man? The one who is disciplined by God and taught out of the Word! That is true happiness or blessedness! It is opposite of the person who thinks he's happy because he is getting his own way! The song is Peace, Peace is Mine. The verse that got me is verse three, but I’m giving you the whole song to enjoy.
God's almighty arms are round me,
Oh, the Peace of God! There's nothing like it!
Do you have peace with God because your sin is forgiven?
Do you have the peace of God because you are being disciplined and taught from the Word? Peace, peace, wonderful peace!
More than anything I would like to encourage you in your walk with God!
