God At Times Brings A Song

Psalm 40:3-8  He has put a new song in my mouth—
Praise to our God;
Many will see it and fear,
And will trust in the Lord.

Blessed is that man who makes the Lord his trust,
And does not respect the proud, nor such as turn aside to lies.
Many, O Lord my God, are Your wonderful works
Which You have done;

And Your thoughts toward us
Cannot be recounted to You in order;
If I would declare and speak of them,
They are more than can be numbered.

6 Sacrifice and offering You did not desire;
My ears You have opened.
Burnt offering and sin offering You did not require.
Then I said, “Behold, I come;
In the scroll of the book it is written of me.
I delight to do Your will, O my God,
And Your law is within my heart.”

Yesterday after finishing and posting “Triple Hardened What’s In A Name” I decided to mow the yard. As what happens sometimes, while I was mowing and thinking with gratefulness to Father God for the things He allowed me to find behind the narrative in the Book of Acts chapters 24 thru 26, I was overwhelmed by His Love and Faithfulness. The scripture that is the theme of this blog came to mind because God had “done it again.”

Jeremiah 33:3 NKJV  ‘Call to Me, and I will answer you, and show you great and [a]mighty things, which you do not know.’         Footnotes:   a: Jeremiah 33:3 inaccessible

This morning when I talked to my Dad who was a pastor for many years, I asked him if he knew that Agrippa II, Bernice and Drusilla were siblings.  I was really surprised when he said he didn’t.

So yesterday as I rode around my yard weeping tears of gratefulness to God, for a moment I wondered, “what would someone think if they saw me like this.” It was for only a moment because I welcome those intimate times reflecting on what God is doing in and through my life as I get to share those things in this blog.

Then way back in my mind, the ending chorus of a Hebrew worship song began playing. It’s was just out of reach to remember the English words or even the title of the song. It was just enough to remember that the words were praises to my Dear Heavenly Father. As I mowed and until I finished, the 8 or 10 notes of the melody continued over and over but the complete song wouldn’t come. I wasn’t even sure if I knew the exact song that it was from but had a good idea.

Then after lunch I got busy doing other things but those notes from the end of the song kept playing in my head, still not clear enough to be certain of the song, it was mostly the melody of it, over and over. Then this morning after my devotional reading and studying God’s Word it was back again playing in my mind but no clearer than before. After a moment I thought, “time to look of the song” so I went to the song I was suspecting the closing chorus’ words were in. I knew those words, praises to God had only been sung at the end so I fast forwarded towards the end. It was the song and the english words that I just couldn’t quite grab hold of in my mind were,

Who is like Thee Adonai
majestic in holiness
Awesome in glory

They are from a wonderful Hebrew worship song by Sarah Liberman, “Fire of Your Spirit” that is a prayer asking God for Him to fill me with His Fire & Spirit and it praises the Blood that cleanses and set me Free. The song begins with the Aaronic blessing from Numbers 6: 24-26 in Hebrew which is a favorite prayer to friends and family, especially for birthdays.

Numbers 6

The words in themselves are a prayer, worship and praise to God and Yeshua Jesus for His Powerful Blood He shed for us.

Put the fire of Your Spirit upon me
Place the power of Your Word within me
Fill me, fill me

I will bow down before the throne of God
I will lift Your Name above all names
There is none like You Adonai
Among the gods
Fill me, fill me

Fill me with Your love
Place Your healing power within me
Fill me, fill me

Your blood purifies me
Your blood frees me

I am free, I am free

You are great and greatly to be praised

 Who is like Thee Adonai
majestic in holiness
Awesome in glory
working wonders

The video below is a tour of the life size model of the Tabernacle built while Israel wandered around the wilderness for 40 years. Since the resurrection of Jesus, the Holy Spirit isn’t looking to dwell in anything built with human hands. Instead He is looking to indwell hearts of  believers in Yeshua Jesus. Only because of the Blood of Jesus being “sprinkled” on our hearts is it acceptable for the Holy Spirit to abide in us.

 

Hebrews 9:13-15 For if the blood of bulls and goats and the ashes of a heifer, sprinkling the unclean, sanctifies for the purifying of the flesh, 14 how much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered Himself without spot to God, cleanse your conscience from dead works to serve the living God? 15 And for this reason He is the Mediator of the new covenant, by means of death, for the redemption of the transgressions under the first covenant, that those who are called may receive the promise of the eternal inheritance.

Hebrews 10:4-18 For it is not possible that the blood of bulls and goats could take away sins. Christ’s Death Fulfills God’s Will
5 Therefore, when He came into the world, He said:

“Sacrifice and offering You did not desire,
But a body You have prepared for Me.
6 In burnt offerings and sacrifices for sin
You had no pleasure.
7 Then I said, ‘Behold, I have come—
In the volume of the book it is written of Me—
To do Your will, O God.’ ”

8 Previously saying, “Sacrifice and offering, burnt offerings, and offerings for sin You did not desire, nor had pleasure in them” (which are offered according to the law), 9 then He said, “Behold, I have come to do Your will, O God.” He takes away the first that He may establish the second. 10 By that will we have been sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.

16 “This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, says the Lord: I will put My laws into their hearts, and in their minds I will write them,” 17 then He adds, “Their sins and their lawless deeds I will remember no more.” 18 Now where there is remission of these, there is no longer an offering for sin.
