May 21, 2015 – Psalm 16:5-6

Psalm16-5-6Lord, you alone are my inheritance, my cup of blessing. You guard all that is mine. The land you have given me is a pleasant land. What a wonderful inheritance! Psalm 16:5-6I can hear her words now, my Mom often said, “Why does God spoil me so much?”  Her book quotes Psalm 16:6 — for she has received a goodly inheritance…the love of God.  I thought perchance because she was born a Loewen-Suderman, but as time goes on, I realize she meant the blessings God heaped upon her daily, blessings of goodness and peace and contentment. Most of all, the blessings of love unending — on earth as it is in Heaven.Mom learned and I learn now that the Lord is the Master of waiting.  As I care for my husband and watch the unsure and faltering steps of my husband, I learn what it is to wait.  The Lord waits for us to come to Him.  How many times did I ignore Him and turn the other way?  He knew the urgency, He knew that my way would lead to death.  Yet the Lord waited for He is a faithful God.  He holds treasures of love and compassion that eases our way through this life.The final blessing will be Heaven!  Literally – Heaven.  After this I looked, and there before me was a door standing open in heaven. And the voice I had first heard speaking to me like a trumpet said, “Come up here, and I will show you what must take place after this.”  At once I was in the Spirit, and there before me was a throne in heaven with someone sitting on it.  And the one who sat there had the appearance of jasper and ruby. A rainbow that shone like an emerald encircled the throne.  Revelation 4:1-3Oh, I’m running to Your arms, I’m running to Your arms, The riches of Your love, Will always be enough, Nothing compares to Your embrace, Light of the world forever reign!  (Hillsong – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3f3sNiYpuF4)So the Lord must wait for you to come to him so he can show you his love and compassion. For the Lord is a faithful God. Blessed are those who wait for his help. Isaiah 30:18
