15. Blessed – happy, fortunate (to be envied) – are the people who know the joyful sound (who understand and appreciate the spiritual blessings symbolized by the feasts); they walk, O Lord, in the light and favor of Your countenance.
16. In Your name, they rejoice all the day, and in your righteousness they are exalted.
17. For You are the glory of their strength (their proud adornment), and by Your favor our horn is exalted and we walk with uplifted faces. Amp.
Blessed are the people that know the joyful sound that comes from heaven. What are heavenly sounds? You can’t say exactly with words what it is because it is spiritual. There is a distinct sound when something is anointed. It is felt in a heart that is clean. The world can’t hear it.
This scripture is talking about the holy remnant who is walking in the light of the Lord’s countenance. The Lord is watching them. He follows all they do. He is blessing them in ways that are not known to all. They have an inner joy that nothing can compare to.
The Lord is the strength that they proudly wear. His glory shines all around them and lights the way. The Lord is with them and in close communion with them and they are blessed. They rejoice in His holy name or character all the day. They are so supremely satisfied because they get to be with Him all the time.
There is a sound in the music of God that fills the heart with His love and presence. It comes from other anointed people of God who are blessed. All do not have it. It is only known by the elect of God.
There is power and strength in that sound that will enable them to be overcomers. It is the same sound the early church had when they were being persecuted. It is the glory of their strength that causes their horn or power to be exalted.
When the Lord begins to judge the world He reveals His face. Those who do not know Him will run and hide. Those who do know Him will be extremely joyful because they know the joyful sound.
PSALM 89:52 Blessed be the Lord for evermore! Amen and Amen.
I often wish I could hear the Psalms that David composed, sang the way that he would have sung them, while playing the lyre. Wenda, One day we may indeed hear those songs, while we are sitting together, at the feet of Jesus💕
