They shall be abundantly satisfied with the fatness of thy house; and thou shalt make them drink of the river of thy pleasures (Psalm 36:8 KJV)
NB. On Feb. 8, 2021, Glory & Grace Daily will be Deshen Daily! As we prepare for this important milestone, we are looking back to review what the Lord has done in the lives of His people all over the world through these devotionals. If these devotionals have been a blessing to you, please share that testimony with us on using this form.
As we prepare to transition the name of our devotionals from Glory & Grace Daily to Deshen Daily on February 8, I will be sharing a few details regarding the devotional life, the word Deshen and a few practical details to enrich your devotional time with the Lord. But, what is “Deshen”?
Deshen is an English transliteration of the Hebrew word “fatness” in Psalms 36:8, “They shall be abundantly satisfied with the fatness of thy house”. It is rich and abundant spiritual food and drink that “abundantly satisfies” the people of God. The main idea is food that satisfies a need for hunger and thirst. That need can be eternal life, e.g., for the lost, healing, joy, understanding, strength, faith, etc. God has a Table furnished to provide for all our needs, spiritual or physical. The food on that Table is rich and abundant. That food is called Deshen. A close parallel many of us are most familiar with is manna.
Deshen is the Word of God as rich and abundant spiritual food that is given to God’s people to furnish intimacy with the Lord, strength, wisdom, joy, healing, provision, understanding, faith, etc. If you have followed our ministry for any length of time, you know this is the core of this ministry. In fact, it is what the Lord has told me to do. He has shown me that by the power and wisdom of His Word accurately taught, understood and believed, I can bring you into glorious experiences with His presence and power. Give us, indeed, every day our daily bread!
Please carefully think through the devotional above as you meditate on Ps 36:8.
APPLY THE WORD
These devotionals are breaths from the Spirit blowing out of my heart. They are portions from God’s Table for you every day. Sit at the Father’s Table, eat to your fill and be satisfied with the sweet presence and power of the Spirit, increasing faith, spiritual maturity, understanding, joy, etc. That is Deshen Daily!
Please join together and ask the Father for the purpose of these devotionals to be fulfilled in our lives.
