God’s Yes

Psalm 128 (The Message)


Psalm 128

A Pilgrim Song

 1-2 All you who fear God, how blessed you are! how happily you walk on his smooth straight road!
   You worked hard and deserve all you’ve got coming.
      Enjoy the blessing! Revel in the goodness!

 3-4 Your wife will bear children as a vine bears grapes,
      your household lush as a vineyard,
   The children around your table
      as fresh and promising as young olive shoots.
   Stand in awe of God’s Yes.
      Oh, how he blesses the one who fears God!

 5-6 Enjoy the good life in Jerusalem
      every day of your life.
   And enjoy your grandchildren.
      Peace to Israel!

I was reading this chapter this morning and couldn’t get away from the shock of verse 4–Stand in awe of God’s Yes.
When was the last time I stood in awe (real eye-opening, feet glued to the floor, can hardly breathe sort of awe) at one of God’s Yes? I’ll just say. .. not near often enough. I started listing God’s yes(es) in my life and I realized how I’ve taken for granted His incomparable, and sometimes quiet, yes (es) for the disappointing, plate-droppingly loud, no(es) or the confusing , am I wandering around like maybe I got His directions wrong, maybe(es). Today, I want to stand in awe of the yes.
