As new creations in Christ, you and I can experience His R.E.S.T: We can be free to be fully alive and live as God’s Holy people! On this day when we celebrate the resurrection of Jesus, God’s Messiah, never forget that because He lives, we can also live. Tap in to this resurrection power to be godly, and holy, through faith in the resurrected Lord and Savior Jesus !
There is one thing the Psalmist wanted. He actually intentionally prayed for it: He wanted to live in the house of The Lord every single day of his life. WOW! Now that is something.
Why do such a thing? Well, he wanted to be at a place, or in a place, where he could be delighted in The Lord’s perfection and use the Temple, as the place for this holy reflection, all the days of his life.
Fast Foward to Today
If we look at the 21st century, we see that we have a far greater opportunity than does the Psalmist: I say this because we don’t have to be in a particular location for this experience. Check this out: WE ARE THE LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION! Our bodies, if we know Jesus, serve as the Temple of The Holy Spirit! Right where we are, we can experience the perfection of our God! We can delight in Him! We can reflect on Him, Meditate on Him and experience Him, develop His gifts and have HIS Spiritual Fruit grow from the inside out! And we can do so “All The Days of” our “lives.”

1. Gracious words are sweet words to hear. Ancient Wisdom gives us a word picture that tells us these words are like a honey comb. I have had the privilege 😌 of tasting honey, and a honey comb from a be hive, and this really is a special kind of sweet. Well, the G words are really special as well.
2. They are really sweet for our souls: Indeed, that part, of each us, that God created when He first breathed the breath of life into us, which caused us to be more than a body … our soul … is blessed by such words. Their impact goes down deep to a God breathed place in us.
3. Finally, this portion of The Word of God teaches that grace words have a healing quality.
We live in an Era when combative, and uncaring words, bathed in coarse hurtful 💔 tones, seem to be the norm for our day. How blessed we would be if Christ Followers could shake a little salt, and shine a little light, and speak with grace.
