The Streams on Earth I’ve Tasted . . . .
More Deep I’ll Drink Above

I find the Word of God speaks to me more in small portions. Sometimes it seems one or two verses fill my mind full. Like looking thru a magnifying glass, it seems to zoom up so large that a few words fill the whole pane of view. And so it is this morning– “that where I am there may ye be also”. I know we have not the comprehension to grasp all the full content here. But to grasp at it brings such rejoicing.

I stand amazed in the presence
Of Jesus the Nazarene,
And wonder how He could love me,
A sinner condemned, unclean.

Oh, how marvelous! Oh, how wonderful!
And my song shall ever be:
Oh, how marvelous! Oh, how wonderful!
Is my Savior’s love for me!

I “AM” amazed at the fleeting passing perishing things of this world that I once thought were so significant. Oh, the glorious hope He has provided you and I and all the household of faith in the Lamb of God.
Oh yes, amazing grace, how sweet the sound!

“Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear.”

“Finally my brethren, be strong in the Lord and the power of His might”; Oh, how I’m so needy here. But we seek His face in all things.

Joined with family for a delayed “Thanksgiving” yesterday. I do not believe I have ever been so blessed with thanksgiving in my own heart.

I was reminded of the woman who came to Jesus, and wept before God, as I re-read the account of her petition before God for the healing of her daughter. Christ told her it was not for her, but was for the Jews. Her glorious response is mine. “Lord, even the dogs get the crumbs”. Oh yes master, just a few crumbs from your table will do me! One sweet touch of your tender mercy! I have found that; My heart soars this hour with rejoicing, I have now the bread of heaven. Oh joy, joy, joy. I’m in-firmed, aged, decrepit, weak in body, but soaring in the heavens with rejoicing. I’m one of His who are destined irrevocably to heaven with my Savior and all the saints of God.

Getting so feeble with the passing of days. But I am reminded that each day is one day closer to being with Him. Think of it my brother, NO SIN in or around Him in heaven. I will be forever thru dealing with it. Oh, what a glorious hope we do have and it is all a gift in His mercy.

You are rich beyond compare, a child of the King, robed in Christ’s righteousness, delivered from the corruption that is in the world through lust, endued from on high with spiritual knowledge, seated in heavenly places in Christ Jesus, kept by the power of God, loved with everlasting love, all things are working together for your good; God is for you and nothing can separate you from His love. So many recorded glorious promises, all from the absolute truth recorded in God’s Word. There’s enough there to think on for a while!

Oh, may we have the faith and boldness to walk as the apostle Paul.

Jer 31:3– “The LORD hath appeared unto me, saying, Yea, I have loved thee with an everlasting love: therefore with lovingkindness have I drawn thee.” Can you think of anything more wonderful?
