I had previously written about how the Lord woke me up, a couple of weeks ago,
(when I say that, I should disclose that I wake up almost every day, to my Bible app as the first thing I look at on my phone-)
so when I say He woke me to, I’m referring to the Word I believe is to me from Him,
I look for the Word as His Word to me, personally.
I woke up to Psalm 143-
“Therefore my spirit is overwhelmed and weak within me [wrapped in darkness]; My heart grows numb within me.”
PSALM 143:4 AMP https://www.bible.com/bible/1588/psa.143.4.amp
I know that’s maybe not the most exciting verse in the Bible, but to me, it was a confirmation and a Great Hope.
I had been asking God to put someone in my path who had been experiencing what I had, and if you read that post, I was experiencing numbness in my heart.
That was my exact discription.
When you look at the beginning of the New Testament, it shows a bloodline. Jesus’ bloodline.
How God worked with every day people, just like you and me, to get His Son of Righteousness in the earth.
They were all flawed, until Jesus.
They ranged from prostitues, to murderers, and liars to name just a few of their not so worthy traits.
But they all had one thing in common-
They trusted God, not themselves.
That’s our bloodline.
When the rubber meets the road, that’s the criteria of being a part of our family tree.
Do we trust His righteousness or go about it another way?
Thank God for David, penning His moment of numbness. It’s like He wrote it just for me.
He didn’t, but I take it that way.
It gave me, and is still giving me hope to press forward.
Onward to the palace. That was an excerpt of his life somewhere between Goliath and ruling and reigning as King.
That’s my bloodline. That’s what I have to look FORWARD to.
Yea, though we walk through…..
the valley of the shadow of death,
(numbness of heart)
we will fear no evil.
We aren’t camping in the valley, we are going through!
Onward my friends! This train is bound for Glory.
