18 Nissan, 5774
Let them shout for joy and be glad who favor my righteous cause; And let them say continually, “Let the Lord be magnified, who has pleasure in the prosperity of His servant.” (Psalm 35:27)
The psalmist knew there were people who agreed with his righteous cause. The cause was his — the righteous cause of a man. It was a righteous pursuit so obviously the Lord was involved but here the cause belonged to a man. “My” refers to the psalmist – the man.
The same is true of your righteous cause. Your life is an epistle, read and known of all men, and the people walking with you in the cause you’ve undertaken have taken on your cause. They cheer you forward, prayerfully keeping vigilant watch for you. They know if your resolve weakens the ordeal may be prolonged and if your heart is broken in the pursuit your cause will also break.
God’s Word applies. You know what you are doing is right – it is righteous; and your humility speaks volumes but you’re no push-over . . . you understand in the deepest part of who you are and in the way God has wired you, this a God-thing! You stepped up and began!
You are not alone. Surrounding you, others are shouting – you go! Your team of encouragers has picked up in the spirit what’s ahead for you; they sense the joy and gladness that’s ahead for you! Sure, they see what you’re going through and, like you, are impatient for your breakthrough. They know your cause is righteous; they know the Lord is on your side.
. . . And they say continually . . . Magnify the Lord! In the way you do this, in the way you live, magnify the Lord!
. . . They say, over and over and over, “Let the Lord be magnified! He is so pleased with you, His servant.”
. . . They talk about you every day; continually, with words, they insist upon your vindication.
. . . Continually, yes continually they prophesy about the Lord’s presence that is with you, proven in the wealth of every decision you make.
Continually, those on your side are talking about you and all that’s going on with that righteous cause of yours! Talking expectantly about you, they SHOUT for all to hear: “Hey, come magnify the Lord with me. Magnify the Lord – shout, rejoice in a big, big way and multiply the Lord’s presence in your midst – to prosper and increase you with every step.
Let those who favor YOUR righteous cause magnify the Lord continually for His favor to accomplish your righteous cause. You go!
Amen, so be it!
