Passion Translation Psalm 27
I HEAR HIS WHISPER…
“Spend time with Me”
I give you strength as you give Me time. The moments that you spend to speak with Me and listen to Me are moments filled with eternity. There is no weakness, no wavering, no doubting in My presence. This is where I energize your being, in My presence. Many influences have affected your life and your thoughts, but as you come into My glory I lavish upon you what you need the most, My love and My strength. So easily you are distracted and disturbed, so faithfully you must come and be with Me.
The peace I bring to you is not comparable to the peace known on earth. It transcends your mortal life and streams to you from My river of tranquility that pours from My throne of grace. Peace like a river will subdue your soul and wash away the words of hopelessness and pain. Come into My river of peace and float on My promises, you will never be disappointed. Listen to Me and peace will be your pillow to rest your anxious thoughts.
In My love you are able to do all things, for I strengthen you with My love. People make demands on your time and your thoughts, I wait for you to come and draw you closer when you choose Me above your friends and your family. Come as My dearest one and I will give you grace for your dearest ones on earth, so that you may show them My love.
When you give Me your time I give you My strength. Are you weak? Then come before Me until you are bathed in power. No human can empower you, for their weapons are puny and helpless. Trust in My strength, not in the affirmation of others. Watch Me work in your heart this day as you “waste” your time in My presence. I will pour you out upon the earth as My gift, My treasure, full of My love.
Psalm 27:4 & 8 The Passion Translation
Here’s the one thing I crave from God,
the one thing I seek above all else:
I want the privilege of living with him every moment in his house,
finding the sweet loveliness of his face,
filled with awe, delighting in his glory and grace.
I want to live my life so close to him
that he takes pleasure in my every prayer.
Lord, when you said to me, “Seek my face,”
my inner being responded:
I’m seeking your face with all my heart.
