2 Samuel 22:29-37 (KJV)
29 For thou art my lamp, O LORD: and the LORD will lighten my darkness.
30 For by thee I have run through a troop: by my God have I leaped over a wall.
31 As for God, his way is perfect; the word of the LORD is tried: he is a buckler to all them that trust in him.
32 For who is God, save the LORD? and who is a rock, save our God?
33 God is my strength and power: and he maketh my way perfect.
34 He maketh my feet like hinds’ feet: and setteth me upon my high places.
35 He teacheth my hands to war; so that a bow of steel is broken by mine arms.
36 Thou hast also given me the shield of thy salvation: and thy gentleness hath made me great.
37 Thou hast enlarged my steps under me; so that my feet did not slip. 

This is a song of David when the Lord delivered him out of the hand of all his enemies, and out of the hand of Saul. This would make a beautiful affirmation to speak every day for your own life. It is a song that glorifies God and also speaks good things into your life. It is a song full of blessings. The Lord lights your path where ever you go. He fills you with strength that you feel you can destroy the enemy that stands in your way; and overcome any obstacle that would try to stop you from accomplishing what you want to accomplish. He gives you the wisdom and understanding to reach to higher heights. To make your feet like the feet of the deer means the ability to go higher and higher with very little. The trails up the mountains are not readily seen because the path is so narrow, but the deer have learned to scale those mountains on those narrow pathways. In life you also learn to hurdle any roadblocks. The Lord knows just when to enlarge the pathway to help you on your journey so that you will not slip or fall. Fly this song of victory high upon a banner of your soul and be blessed with the effects of the powerfulness of the words. Speak strong and loudly; and receive your blessings today.

Jehovah-El Elyon

Genesis 14:19 (KJV)
19 And he blessed him, and said, Blessed be Abram of the most high God, possessor of heaven and earth:

“El” expresses strength, might or power, or by extension, deity. “Elyon” means the supreme or the most high. When they are used together then it expresses that there is none higher and there is nothing that can be compared. It captures God as the highest authority in the affairs of mankind and in all nature. Who could be higher than the God who framed the worlds just by speaking them into existence by his word? He is the highest power, “And I heard as it were the voice of a great multitude, and as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of mighty thunderings, saying, Alleluia: for the Lord God omnipotent (all powerful or all ruling) reigneth.” Paul wrote to Timothy, “That thou keep this commandment without spot, unrebukeable, until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ: Which in his times he shall shew, who is the blessed and only Potentate, the King of kings, and Lord of lords;” This reveals that Jesus Christ is the visible of an invisible God. Matthew recorded the words of Jesus, “All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.”  There is no other who should receive praise or glory. John recorded an event that will take place (Revelation 7:9-12)“After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands; 10And cried with a loud voice, saying, Salvation to our God which sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb. 11And all the angels stood round about the throne, and about the elders and the four beasts, and fell before the throne on their faces, and worshipped God, 12Saying, Amen: Blessing, and glory, and wisdom, and thanksgiving, and honour, and power, and might, be unto our God for ever and ever. Amen.” He is our blessing and deserves our honor. He is the Most High God. You are blessed just by knowing him. Receive your blessing of knowing who the Lord God is, and was, and is to come.

Luke 23:39-43 (KJV)
39 And one of the malefactors which were hanged railed on him, saying, If thou be Christ, save thyself and us.
40 But the other answering rebuked him, saying, Dost not thou fear God, seeing thou art in the same condemnation?
41 And we indeed justly; for we receive the due reward of our deeds: but this man hath done nothing amiss.
42 And he said unto Jesus, Lord, remember me when thou comest into thy kingdom.
43 And Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, To day shalt thou be with me in paradise.

Two different destinies. Jesus was nailed to a cross and placed between two thieves. One thief mocked and spoke evil to Jesus. The other thief rebuked the thief which disrespected Jesus. He understood that the punishment he was receiving was just for the crimes that he had committed. He also knew that Jesus was a man who had not done anything wrong and did not deserve the cruelty of the cross. In his humility he asked the Lord to remember him when he entered his kingdom. Jesus with compassion told him that this thief would be with him in paradise. Jesus saw his humility and confession of his sins, forgave him. The other thief had no remorse for what he had done and was not given the same promise. Two men who met the Master in a most unlikely setting had the same opportunity, but one chose to die in his sin while the other only hoped to receive forgiveness. What is your choice? To continue in your sinful condition or confess your sins and ask for forgiveness? Blessed is the man who hungers and thirst after righteousness for they shall be filled. You have made the right choice, receive your blessings.
