Have you ever had an experience in life where your heart is tickled???? By that I am describing a heart tickled as one excited or stirred up agreeably, provoked to laugher, joy or merriment. It gives ya this kind of expression:
I have to say the Lord truly just tickles my heart in heavenly ways as I look to Jesus first and foremost in life! King David understood this when he wrote this praise of deliverance by our Father. As you read it, see if you can pick up on how his heart is tickled by the Father:
“O Lord, in Your strength the king will be glad,
And in Your salvation
how greatly he will rejoice!
You have given him his heart’s desire,
And You have not withheld
the request of his lips.
For You meet him with
the blessings of good things;
You set a crown of fine gold on his head.
He asked life of You,
You gave it to him,
Length of days forever and ever.
His glory is great through
Splendor and majesty You place upon him.
For you make him most blessed forever;
You make him joyful with gladness in Your
For the king trusts in the LORD,
And through the lovingkindness
of the Most High he will not be shaken.”
This Psalm or praise of deliverance was written in response to the prayers of the people for King David in which they prayed for him:
“May the LORD answer you in the day of trouble!
May the name of the
God of Jacob set you
securely on high!
May He send you help
from the sanctuary (sacred place)
And support you from Zion!
May He remember all
your meal offerings
And find your burnt offering
May He grant you your heart’s desire
And fulfill all your
We will sing for joy over your victory,
And in the name of our God we will set up
May the LORD fulfill all
Now I know that the LORD saves His
He will answer him from
His holy heaven
With the saving
strength of His right hand.
Some boast in chariots
and some in
But we will boast in the
name of the LORD, our
They have bowed down and fallen,
But we have risen and
Save, O LORD;
May the King answer us
in the day we call.“
WOW! According to King David, the LORD answered the people’s prayers for him against enemy armies and that not only tickled King David’s heart, but the hearts of the people who boasted in advance of the faithfulness of their God in response to their prayer that they had confidence in to bring heaven to their king and hence to them! Oh that kinda makes ya want to pray for your leader, doesn’t it! Doing so with ya!
When we as God’s people look to Him, He puts upon our hearts what is of heaven’s heart for us!!!! As the people prayed “May He grant you your heart’s desire And fulfill all your counsel!” the LORD went to work in guiding King David’s heart and counseled him in such a way that led King David to have a heart in agreement and celebration of victory with heaven and oh that is sure how our Father still works in the lives of His people even today! We may think this way initially or step forward with a plan and our Father reveals His Godly counsel as we go that can move our hearts to match up with heaven’s heart plan for us and when we see it and go with it, our hearts are tickled with joy and gladness for we trust in the LORD!!! Through His lovingkindness of revealing heaven to our hearts, we are not shaken, but enlightened and excited about going with the heavenly plan in life and seeing His victory for us as Father’s Word tells us:
“Delight yourself in the LORD;
And He will give you the
desires of your heart.
Commit your way to the LORD,
Trust also in Him, and He
will do it.
He will bring forth your
righteousness as the
And your judgment
as the noonday.”
Because our Father is righteous and just, we have the assurance that He will extend righteousness and justice to His people of faith in Him! HOOORRRAAAHHH! Oh that glory of His that will be unveiled soon with the coming of His kingdom shall be like the rising sun at dawn and like the bright light at noon! This we can be sure of, for us of faith in Christ Jesus as our Savior, there will be no condemnation for us – only reward for what we do on this earth out of a heart for heaven! GLORY BE TO JESUS FOREVER!
Therefore, let us keep praying, precious family of faith and looking to our Father and we, too shall find our hearts tickled in His victory blessings for us as He is at work in our lives even now and forever! Oh He has a heavenly way of changing the atmosphere of our hearts to bring heaven to us here on earth as this song says here. To that I say, bring it sweet loving kind Jesus! I sooo want to have a heavenly heart after your own heart!
He loves us of faith, dear ones and is faithful to lead us in triumphant procession always as we keep looking to Him Who is all the time good and forever victorious and therefore, so are we!!!! WOOOHOOO!!!! I’m tickled about that and rejoicing with ya’s wherever you are today!!!! Let us stay connected in unity of heart through prayer to our Father for heaven’s heart for us because it’s the divine life that just tickles our hearts!!!! Oh that thought just makes me smile! 🙂 It’s a good life with Jesus with us wherever we are just as we are! Father sees us His of faith always holy, blameless and beyond reproach–if indeed we continue in the faith firmly established and steadfast and not moved away from the hope of the gospel that we have heard which was proclaimed in all creation under heaven.
