Psalm 73


Today I read Psalm 73. I knew basically what it was about. It is about seeing the wicked prosper and not understanding it “UNTIL I went into the Sanctuary of God, then I understood their end” (v.17).

But the Holy Spirit so quickened another verse to me that I have meditated it ever since. And I wanted to share it with others. I texted it to my children and grandchildren. I tweeted it. And now I am sending it to you.

I realize that this verse insures my entire future. My future at age 82, or my youngest grandchild’s, Isaac, at age 11.

And here it is!!!!!!!

“Thou shalt guide me with Thy counsel, and afterward receive me to Glory.”
Psalm 73:24


Shalom and Blessing

P.S. Of course, you and I have to put ourselves in the position of listening to His counsel. Fellowshipping with Him through His Word. And Prayer. (There has to be what I call “the listening side of prayer.”) Practicing His Presence.

      It is such a joy and peace to know the Lord’s comfort for His people. While the enemies of the Lord contend, the people of the Lord maintain their position of rest in the Lord.

  3. penny marrone on December 12, 2020 at 5:40 pm

    Amen we get so excited with our prayer that we dont listen to what he has to say. With what is happening in our election the remnant has prayed the word and we have seen the the hidden things coming to a service and now with the supreme court not want to hear our case its tinde to pray in the spirit to end this . We have relied on our own understanding but now we need to pray in the spirit to finish this.

  16. Gwen Ricks on December 12, 2020 at 7:16 pm

    Thank you for sharing when we have needed this today! Not understanding why our Supreme Court would not hear our plea!
    As I have been meditating in Exodus 14, I can see that as God hardened Egypt heart and lured them to the Red Sea, Our God gets the glory and He will this time!

    Thank you, Billye. At 80 yrs, I am not far behind you. I have been so caught up with our prayer time, positional authority, and what is happening all around us, listening to the prophets, that I have been neglecting my alone time with God. Than you for the reminder. Bless you and your family. We love you and your teaching.

    • Nancy and Isaiah on December 12, 2020 at 9:16 pm

    What a promise…Thanks for the reinforcement of the Word…I think whether 80 or 11 time is short on God’s calendar. Be blessed????

    • Sourneat Krawczak AKA Anna K. on December 13, 2020 at 1:50 pm

      Shalom! Thank you, Sister Billye! I had in my Bible the date Sep. 16, 2006, was the date I fasted as I was going through something. But the Lord spoke to me in the shower as I sobbed. It was the year when my grandmother passed. We had a beautiful small funeral for her and a man of God preached a great message of salvation. It was also the time when I transitioned to a new job that the Lord has just promoted me. Glory to God! Vs. 12 “Behold, these are the ungodly, who prosper in the world; they increase in riches.” A Psalm of Asaph. Then the Lord spoke to Habakkuk in Chapter 2:2-3 to write the vision. That’s when I started to write my own vision each year of how I prophesy to my own life as God sees me.
      Thank you for being such a blessing to the Body of Christ with your word of encouragement and wisdom from our Lord. I believe as Brother Hagin prophesied you have helped us to be a part of that – “…there’s going to be a whole company of believers who will rise up with the authority that is theirs…they will do the work that God intended they should do.” Blessings to you and your family and at BBM. We love you – Blessed the Lord who blessed us with all spiritual blessings in Christ Jesus. Hallelujah! With love, Anna K. Virginia

  19. Ricky Bratton on December 12, 2020 at 8:03 pm

    I want to thank you for this Word. It reminds me that I need to be guided by His counsel. And yes, our destiny is His glory. As for this electoral process, I believe our Father is allowing us to exhaust all of our idea’s and abilities. So that when He steps in (And He will step in-our President is the friend of Israel), we will say, only our God and Father could have done this. And He will receive all the glory. I am EXCITED to see what my Father has in store for this electoral process!!! It’s going to be GRAND and SIMPLE at the same time. We have prayed, we have believed and we have spoken (decreed, declared & commanded). Now it is time for us to REST. And allow our Father to do His part. My statement of faith, “Dad Your up, I’ll be over here out of Your way, watching You show out.”hahahahahahahahahahahahahaha

  20. Peggy Berets on December 12, 2020 at 8:32 pm

    Ty and bless you. I’ve been studying since my divorce. About 14 years. His word is my salvation. Bless you and your lovely family at Christmas. I’ll never forget studying The Authority of the believer with you and Glo.

  22. Mary on December 12, 2020 at 9:11 pm

    Thanks Billye for sharing this verse You have no idea how it blessed me. I lost my amazing son recently and I am looking forward to the day when God “receives me in to Glory.” Our great hope. Until then may He use us to advance His kingdom however we can.

  23. Joanne Drenckpohl on December 12, 2020 at 9:26 pm

    Thank you

  24. Gymmie Smith on December 12, 2020 at 9:28 pm

    I often read 73:23-26 at graveside services along with 17:15 from The Living Bible, which states, “as for me, my contentment is not in wealth but in seeing you and knowing all is well between us. And when I awake in Heaven, I will be fully satisfied, for I will see you face to face.”
    Twice these passages have blessed family members who were not sure if their loved one was in heaven or if spirit, soul & body were in the grave awaiting the rapture. Such a great relief to hear the truth from the Word.
    This is one of my favorite passages.

    Thank You.

  25. Janet L Smith on December 12, 2020 at 9:32 pm

    Thank you for sharing your heart of instruction from our Heavenly Father’s book today! His mercies are new every morning!

    Thanks Ms Billye!

    That is very well-timed message.

    I received it as a WORD from the LORD. And a good complement for the Psalm 121 that I meditated on this morning and through the day 🙂

    Our LORD is so good, He is our Keeper, He is our Refuge.
    GLORY to His Name forever and ever. Amen!!

    Shalom, shalom!

  32. Yeli Vale on December 13, 2020 at 6:41 am

    Good and blessed morning!

    I have a Bible side by side KJV-NIV and time ago in my time of prayer I marked this verses and it reads as follow:

    2 Chronicles 20: 15 KJV:

    ..Thus said the LORD unto you, Be not afraid nor dismayed by reason of this great multitude; for the battle is not yours, but God’s.

    2 Chronicles 20: 17 NIV:

    You will not have to fight this battle. Take up your positions; stand firm and see the deliverance the LORD will give you….

    2 Chronicles 20: 18 KJV:

    ….worshiping the LORD.

    2 Chronicles 20: 19, 20KJV:

    …praise the LORD God of Israel with a loud voice on high.

    …Believe in the LORD ( NIV: Have faith in the LORD your God) KJV … so shall ye be established; believe his prophets, so shall ye prosper.

    2 Chronicles 20: 21KJV:

    This is underline in red ink no highlighted

    …appointed singers unto the LORD, …that should praise the beauty of holiness, as they went out before the army, and to say, Praise the LORD; for his mercy endures forever.

    2 Chronicles 20: 22 KJV:

    And when they began to sing and to praise, the LORD set ambushments against the children of Ammon, Moab, and mount…. ( I wrote: them, the enemy)

    And this morning… I open my Bible to go to my scripture in Psalms to meditate on it and it opened right there ???? what a Blessing to me today to read this. The WORD of the LORD is so precious.

    Praise the LORD; for His mercy endures forever.

    Oh LORD our good FATHER thanks for your LOVE for your FAITHFULNESS. We love YOU because YOU love us first.. thank YOU❣️

  33. Maria Walker on December 13, 2020 at 7:21 am

  40. Jeanine Placide-Carthans on December 13, 2020 at 9:58 pm

    Thank You , thank you so very much for Psalm 73:24
    “Fellowshipping with Him through His Word and Prayer ( There has to be what I call : The Listening side of prayer.”)
    Practicing His Presence “
    Thank You! This is So powerful: Fellowshipping with Him ! What an honor ! I do know that God the kind of love of God is Agape love!
    With the world going virtual, I have been blessed to grow closer to Our Father so much more than in my entire life of 66 years on this earth. I am very grateful that through The Word of God I was healed at 2017 Southwest Believer Convention With KCM.
    That was A Door to many Blessings ! Since March 2020 , I feel like a kid in a candy store …
    …Jesus came so we may have life more Abundantly!
    I am so forever grateful for the Abundance of The Knowledge of God and his Son Jesus available now in the world that my dream to know Our Father is being fulfilled without living home and all the expenses . My WOW to win people to the Lord has grew roots again and sustained people zeal for life and for growing closer to Jesus & Our Loving Father .

  44. Ricky Bratton on December 15, 2020 at 10:50 am

    I believe we are coming into a Psalm 2 moment in our Nation. I believe Our God is sitting in the heaven’s laughing at the enemy as he thinks he’s triumphing in our elections. Just the same as he thought he was triumphing at the death of our Lord. We are buried in the grave right now, but day 3 is on the way. Our election is headed for a glorious resurrection of a 2nd term of Presidency for our beloved Donald J Trump, God’s man of the hour. He has a job to finish and we need him to finish it. Bring it Lord…..display Your glory and power!!!

  45. Jo on December 15, 2020 at 9:15 pm

    THANK YOU Sister Billye,
