1 The earth is the Lord’s, and everything in it, the world, and all who live in it; 2 for he founded it on the seas and established it on the waters. 3 Who may ascend the mountain of the Lord? Who may stand in his holy place? 4 The one who has clean hands and a pure heart, who does not trust in an idol or swear by a false god.[a] 5 They will receive blessing from the Lord and vindication from God their Savior. 6 Such is the generation of those who seek him, who seek your face, God of Jacob.[b][c] 7 Lift up your heads, you gates; be lifted up, you ancient doors, that the King of glory may come in. 8 Who is this King of glory? The Lord strong and mighty, the Lord mighty in battle. 9 Lift up your heads, you gates; lift them up, you ancient doors, that the King of glory may come in. 10 Who is he, this King of glory? The Lord Almighty— he is the King of glory.
This Psalm is a call for us to have the right picture of God. To understand His place in the world. It is good to be reminded of God’s power and His place. It is easy to get distracted.
He created this place and all of us. It is He we need to go to when things don’t make sense – they make sense to Him. Invite Him into your life. Don’t fall asleep at the wheel. Grow in your connection to the King of glory. Let Him into your life and the things you are facing. Join with Him as He fights the battles.
Thank You Lord – that You made the world; that You made us; that You are ready to enter in as King; that You are ready for battle; that You want us to be there beside You. Help us to have the right picture of You in our lives and to walk the path beside You each day. Amen
