    23 A Psalm by David.

    1 Yah Veh Raah;
    I lack not.
    2 He reposes me in sprouting folds;
    he guides me beside the waters of rest:
    3 He restores my soul;
    he leads me in the paths of justness
    for sake of his name.
    4 Yes, though I walk through the valley
    of the shadow of death,
    I awe no evil;
    for you are with me;
    your scion and your crutch sigh over me:
    5 you arrange a table at my face
    in the presence of my tribulators;
    you anoint my head with ointment;
    my cup satiates.
    6 Surely goodness and mercy pursue me
    all the days of my life;
    and I settle in the house of Yah Veh
    for a length of days.

    I've been scrolling through your latest comments. God is never mentioned. Jesus, God the Son, is never mentioned. Now with this post, you completely ignore the work of God in quickening and in gifting his children with pastoral ministry. Such man-centered teaching, is it from God? I leave you to ponder what you have been doing...

    For a number years I have been answering the enquiry “ how are you” with the reply “contented” which is both accurate and sincere.
    This morning I was made aware of the reason for my contentment. Unlike Mick Jagger who cried “ I can’t get no satisfaction” I can and do get satisfaction in all things. This satisfaction and the gratefulness that accompanies it results in blissful contentment.
    The person who has their mind, mouth and life filled with complaints and sighs will find only misery all the day long, just as i once did in the days of wrath.

    The problem with running away
    is that you can't escape yourself.
    Wherever the person runs to
    they will always find themselves
    waiting, accusing and mocking.

    About two or three weeks into my salvation I was leaving a Sunday meeting of evangelicals that I had begun to attend’ The Pastor, who was busy receiving praise for his sermon, saw me and shouted across the room, “you’re doing really well’ and gave me a thumbs up. I immediately, without any forethought, replied in all honesty, “I’m not doing anything”.

    Last year a chap I’ve known since my conversion started giving me a pep talk. He did so by pointing out each and everything he deemed necessary for my TRUE salvation. Uninteruppted he mentioned at least a dozen things. When he finished I told him that I hadn’t done any of the things he’d listed. His shoulders straighten and I saw him put on a devilish smile as if to say, “There, I’ve caught you out, you fraud”.
    Then, in all sincerity, I added, “but I have felt all those things working in me since the day of my regeneration”. He looked sad and I realised he was unable to rejoice in the salvation that is by grace through trust.

    Let the volume of the call to be grateful
    be so sudden and so loud that it can’t be ignored
    Cause me to answer the call with a sincere gratitude
    that melts my heart and brings tears of joy.

    When I was working I used to love this time of year when I'd filed my tax return and paid whatever tax was due. I was always grateful for the ability to pay the bill and that self-control had prevented me from squandering the money I'd set aside. Yah Veh is good.

    Salvation is not about doing
    salvation involves the receiving
    and acceptance that all that needs
    to be done has been and will become.
    There are sufficiency and certainty
    in salvation that has no reliance
    nor dependance on mankind.

    I am sought of them that asked not for me; I am found of them that sought me not: I said, Behold me, behold me, unto a nation that was not called by my name. I have spread out my hands all the day unto a rebellious people, which walketh in a way that was not good, after their own thoughts; a people that provoketh me to anger continually to my face; that sacrificeth in gardens, and burneth incense upon altars of brick; which remain among the graves, and lodge in the monuments, which eat swine's flesh, and broth of abominable things is in their vessels; which say, Stand by thyself, come not near to me; for I am holier than thou. These are a smoke in my nose, a fire that burneth all the day. Behold, it is written before me: I will not keep silence, but will recompense, even recompense into their bosom, your iniquities, and the iniquities of your fathers together, saith the Lord, which have burned incense upon the mountains, and blasphemed me upon the hills: therefore will I measure their former work into their bosom.
