Psalm 81 has a beautiful ending:
“If my people would only listen to me,
if Israel would only follow my ways,
how quickly I would subdue their enemies
and turn my hand against their foes!
Those who hate the Lord would cringe before him,
and their punishment would last forever.
But you would be fed with the finest of wheat;
with honey from the rock I would satisfy you.”
Now consider a version through the lens of Union, from the lips of Jesus:
"If my people would only listen to my voice from within,
if Believers would only follow my Way,
how quickly I would remind them of My victory over the enemy,
for I have dealt already with their foe!
Those people who hate the Lord would learn to know Him,
and their salvation would last forever.
For you are being fed with the choicest from my table;
with honey from the Rock I am satisfying you."
May our day today draw honey from the Rock who is our Savior; may His presence in us be the light upon the Way! We are the ones set free from ceaseless striving; our place is found in Him; the world is watching to see if His Life in us is true and real.
