Filled With Good Things
A largely unspoken, even unknown blessing resides within the soul of the sufferer - a life shunned or broken. The poor in spirit or the weak in body are invited to the rest rooms of heaven; rooms the able-bodied or the rich in spirit have no need of, nor carry a thirst for.
The burdened are blessed for God's choice rests steadfastly upon them:
- Blessed are those You choose to bring near to live in Your courts. We are filled with the good things of your house, of your holy temple. (Psalm 65:4)
- Blessed are those who have learned to acclaim You, who walk in the light of your presence, O Lord. (Psalm 89:15)
- Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. (Matthew 5:3)
For He has satisfied the thirsty soul, and the hungry soul He has filled with what is good. (Psalm 107:9)
The desperate day that the Lord draws you aside is one to rejoice in - not lament. Don't despise the day of despair, it is better. The day of deep pain births the day of great gain.
Blessed are those you choose and bring near to live in your courts! We are filled with the good things of your house, of your holy temple. (Psalm 65:4)
To be drawn aside by God is to feast at the table of His richest fare, even when trekking the scorching sands.
