We will first share the complete PSALM 138, which was penned by the senior pioneering real, taking dominion King, who was also a writer, prophetic seer, warrior and priest as unto the Lord.
NOW: PSALM 138 APOSTOLIC LEADER BIBLE STUDY PART 5
FIRST: Please read the entire Psalm 138 (but we only discuss verse 5 on this posting)
1.I will praise thee with my whole heart: before the gods will I sing praise unto thee.
2 I will worship toward thy holy temple, and praise thy name for thy lovingkindness and for thy truth: for thou hast magnified thy word above all thy name.
In the day when I cried thou answeredst me, and strengthenedst me with strength in my soul.
4 All the kings of the earth shall praise thee, O Lord, when they hear the words of thy mouth.
5 Yea, they shall sing in the ways of the Lord: for great is the glory of the Lord.
6 Though the Lord be high, yet hath he respect unto the lowly: but the proud he knoweth afar off.
7 Though I walk in the midst of trouble, thou wilt revive me: thou shalt stretch forth thine hand against the wrath of mine enemies, and thy right hand shall save me.
With that finished, let’s get on to verse 5. But if YOU did not get a chance to read the previous blog about Verse 4, as this one pertains to that one, it may be good thing to do first, before you read any more.
PSALM 138:5, “ Yea, they shall sing in the ways of the Lord: for great is the glory of the Lord.”
“Yea, they shall sing in the ways of the Lord.”
Again this tells us that once the sober, realistic, pragmatic and logical pioneering senior minister /or or prophetic King (or Queen) “perceive,discern “(meaning they RECEIVE, OR GET) a “word from the Lord, which pertains to their own unique set of (even dire) circumstances, that God’s WORD will penetrate the hopelessness, the weariness and the deep personal doubt and major frustration of what they are aware of: back in their business or ministry life or either in their private, personal, real life.
As we mentioned in VERSE 4 Study (on the previous entry) the tired, very aware of what needs to be resolved, king, queen, who is often “multimantled, multigifted and multifaceted” may have MANY levels of attack all happening, even at once.
So when GOD is able, with His fine tuned Holy Spirit precision, to divide between what is hay and chaff, that which is fair and unjust and that which is so delicate, it resembles the soft place “between the mortal soul and the marrow” then THIS “EUREKA, I’VE GOT IT” (meaning perceiving that through the SPIRITUAL EYES of applied FAITH” that God has responded.
Even in the midst of OUR uncertainty,with a spiritually whispered “YES.” The power of God can immediately REMOVE the big tension, alleviate even giant pressures, and begin to slowly DECOMPRESS what had been before, a somber, stoic, ,acutely pressured prophetic senior minister, or pioneering business person.
Perhaps, as Verse 5 implies,with all of the pressures now alleviated, for at least the moment, the King feels the light peace and carefree nature of a kid at heart. He/she may very well burst into a song of joy or praise to God or even a spontaneous one, that celebrates a great victory.
Surely, the Psalmist pioneering King David had done just that, at many different times.
YET, when we read the entire verse, we notice something deeper.
While it DOES say that the prophetic, ruling King, ruling Queen, will “sing” it reveals much more.
“they shall sing in the ways of the Lord”
Admittedly, after God bringing me through VERY MANY acute, very long enduring repeated TESTS and exceeding difficult (MANY) personal and ministry near death, not one bit positive situations, when I reflect, I can see how the Lord used EACH SIGNIFICANT ONE to cause me to turn toward HIM and thus get to know now just ABOUT Him.
With His Eternal Overview Leader Viewpoint, the Heavenly Father understands just what HE truly wants as well as what WE truly require: to fully get WITH HIM, rather than remaining in the shallow waters of an Outer Court surface underlying relationship.
And, the apostolic writer, having been in repeated (MANY) apostolic jail lengthy season for long seasons, has found that HE used them for fine tuning, for polishing, and for setting me FREE while (rather ironically)held back, apostolically /humanly WITHSTOOD, and even while forced to recuperate from warfare, even the Friendly Fire, fellow human accusative variety.
For after EMERGING, in appreciative, amazed, hindsight view, I fully understood how God had freed me further from the manmade Prison House of SELF. And in dying to ones SELF one is granted new power and life of the RISEN LORD and further deeper revelation knowledge of His Own Kingdom.
The Heavenly Father had granted me NEW amazing FREEDOM from (multilevels) of FEAR, most especially of “fearing other men’s faces” and in exchange for the unpleasant leadership Prison Time” He allowed me the granted GRACE to discern not about HIM, but about His WAYS and for all of my repeatedly DYING TO SELF, He turned it into NEWER, DEEPER, discerned comforted realms of REAL LIFE “He comes to bring life more abundantly.”
“Verily, verily I say unto you, unless a grain of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abideth alone; but if it die, it bringeth forth much fruit.” John 12:24
And the byproduct of this slow, leader over all PROCESS is the release of a NEW, Deeper, tougher, wiser deep Leader, who will be able to remain in deep PEACE and REST when faced with the future problems, untrue persons and pioneering trials.
And this NEW deep leader will be absolutely FEARLESS come what may: due to this new God allowed “DEPTH” of absolute TRUST, ACCEPTANCE, PEACE, REST which comes with the Fearless Freedom to fully ENJOY and once again begin to FLOURISH.
And in this writer’s experience, God will allow YOU to perceive and discern and once again begin to GROW in a new (spiritually perceived) understanding, that because of being through that, God was simply preparing YOU to live, to feel even BETTER than YOU used to, even before that particular Time ever existed.
Now back to Psalm 138:5:
So along with prophet, priest and King David, this writer would also regard VERSE 5 ““they shall sing in the ways of the Lord” as very well could mean:
The business market place kings, having been in overly much heightened PRESSURE, and over the repeated test of TIME, should they keep their Focus on ETERNITY and regard each TEST as a “sign” to “Turn More TOWARD The Lord,” ……
…..then they will eventually NOT only gladly SING praises about what the Lord is doing and has actually DONE,but will, with a much deeper Love and mature real appreciation for the WAYS of the LORD( His goodness, His comfort, His abiding JOY and PRESENCE, loving,NON ACCUSATIVE Nature) ….
….and hence, they will ALSO sing as they “sing IN THE WAYS of the Lord” (being intimately, personally reminded of the FAVOR and GOODNESS of the ENDURING, COMFORTING “Being There-ness” father’s NATURE” or “WAYS”)
“Yea, they shall sing in the ways of the Lord: for great is the glory of the Lord.”
The kings are singing with JOY and appreciative THANKSGIVING due to the fact that, while in the MIDST of their trouble, big stress and amazing hardships, that through the MERCY OF GOD’s “Being There” HE can still allow them, assist them to PERCEIVE and DISCERN His Presence, His Peace and His undergirding POWER, even while they are in the middle of the STORM.
The Ruler Kings have asked the Lord for His FAVOR …and HE has COMPLIED. They now detect His Granted Grace and are deeply humbled, appreciative and GLAD.
The Lord has shown His Face down upon them and in the middle of the PRESSURE He has broken through every resistance,ever tough minded abrasive personality and every Personal Ministry warring Strong Hold.
Now, the prophetic, mantled Kingdom Business Market Place Rulers get many reasons to prophesy, to declare and to PERCEIVE the Glory of their GOD.
THE GREAT AMAZING GOD has SHOWN UP, BROKEN THROUGH and truly PROVIDED.
“Great is the Glory of the LORD!”
(Then, let them all shout AMEN!)
