Rabbi Schneider - Living in Joy
Baruch Hashem beloved ones. This is Rabbi Schneider. Bless the name of the Lord from Jerusalem. I'm continuing today, we've been here for several weeks, but it's such a beautiful Psalm. I'm continuing today in Psalm number 73. Now I left off last week on the 24th verse, where the Psalmist said there, "With your counsel you will guide me". And I simply said last week that there was such a sense in the Psalmist's life of God's nearness to him, that God was gonna uphold him and that he had confidence that whatever he faced in the future God was gonna guide them. And I declare that over your life right now.
Now I'm gonna move on to the next part of the verse here, verse number 24. The Psalmist continued and he said, "And afterward". He was saying to Hashem, he was saying to God, "You will receive me into glory". I mean the Psalmist covered every part of his life; that God was with him in the present, that God was gonna keep him from falling as he moved forward, that God was gonna guide him in the future. And now lastly the Psalmist declares with confidence, "And afterwards you will receive me into glory". He knew that when he died he was gonna go straight into the glory of Hashem, straight into the glory of God.
You know Yeshua said, "In My Father's house there are many mansions". He's prepared a place for you and me. I mean if we would really take a hold of this church, if we would really take a hold of this beloved ones, we would be living in such joy and without fear. The Psalmist said, "Your nearness is my portion". You're near me O God. The Psalmist said, "You're gonna guide me and keep me from falling". And then Psalmist said, "And afterward You're gonna receive me into glory". I mean what a carefree life. If we really knew and believed in the innermost part of our kishkas, our innermost being, that God is near us. He's with us. He's closer to us then our own breath.
And as we move forward in life He's gonna keep us from stumbling. We might fall, but we're never gonna fall completely. He's gonna hold us, the Psalmist said, "You'll uphold me by my hand". And then He's gonna guide us as we're going forward and afterward, beloved, at the end of our days, He's gonna receive us into glory. Beloved, I speak a word of confidence over your life today. Go forward in the confidence, in the name of the Lord. Baruch Hashem from Israel. This is Rabbi Schneider saying I love you, shalom and it would be good for you to pass this on to a friend. I think they'll enjoy it.
