Here is a new song that the Holy Spirit gave me in 2002. The title comes from Psalm 110:3 which says, “…in the beauties of holiness, from the womb of the morning, You have the dew of Your youth”
Womb of the Morning
I come to You O Lord in the womb of the morning. To sit and worship You and call upon Your name. You answer me with a sweetness that melts my heart. And opens me to receive Your words.
Your words like oil penetrate the places in my heart that were hardened through fear. You say My child don’t be afraid. I’ve been there all along to shield and protect. Let go of that which you clutch so tight. That I might fulfill the deepest longings of your heart.
Don’t let the cares of this life choke out My words. Open your heart to hear the beat of My own heart. I desire oneness with you but I won’t compete with that to which you give yourself. I will but wait until you tire of your own pursuits. And nestle down in My love.
Be still now and quiet your heart before Me. I have so much to share to reveal the depths of My counsel. For in Me is hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge. I have all and hold all. Through the power of My Word.
In Me you will lack nothing. Your very sustenance comes through sweet communion. Through intimacy that cannot be broken. Nothing in this earth can compare with My beauty of holiness. In the womb of the morning.
Hidden sin hardens our heart through its deceitfulness. God’s word is like oil that can penetrate to soften and loosen our calloused places. That is His part. Our part is to be in His word daily. He uses His word in many different ways.
Jeremiah 23:29 says, “Is not My word like a fire? says the Lord, and like a hammer that breaks the rock in pieces?” Isaiah 59:19 says, “…when the enemy comes in like a flood, the Spirit of the Lord will lift up a standard against him.”
Psalm 149:6 says, “Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, and a two-edged sword in their hand.” Jeremiah 15:16 says, “Your words were found, and I ate them, and Your word was to me the joy and rejoicing of my heart.”
His word has significant application for every aspect of our lives. It is not a bandage to cover, He wields His word like a skilled surgeon does his scalpel. Hebrews 4:12 says that it pierces and penetrates to split apart that which defies His will and His ways through our thoughts.
Everything goes back to our thoughts. Our thoughts are key if we are to spiritually thrive. We are called to live in His abundance. I love Jeremiah 33:14. It says, “I will satiate the soul of the priests with abundance, and My people shall be satisfied with My goodness, says the Lord.” Are you filled and overflowing?
Like David said in Psalm 23:5 ~ in the presence of our enemy, He causes our cup to overflow. Our adverse circumstances never alter the Lord’s purpose for our lives. He uses them to draw us closer to Him. He desires to share His heart with us through intimate communion that will sustain and fulfill us in every aspect of our lives.
