Psalm 24

Read Psalm 24 – The meaning of life.  What a great day this is!  Beloved, once you fully understand Psalm 24 everything in life lines up.  

“The earth is the LORD’s, and everything in it, the world, and all who live in it.” :1  It’s not about me.  It’s not mine.  Yet God has blessed me to enjoy and care for his creation.  He has blessed me to delight and care for my very own life because I am his.  

Those who seek the LORD with a clean hands and a pure heart will enter his presence, receiving blessing and vindication. (:3-6)  Exhale, Beloved, life is that simple so don’t lose your way with the things of this world.  Walk close with Jesus; stay on the narrow path, and know that the best is yet to come.

Regarding :7-10, when there is a knock at your door, what do you ask?  “Who is it?”  So, who is this King of glory?  He is the one the doors to heaven must be thrown open for!  He is the LORD, strong and mighty, mighty in battle, the LORD Almighty – he is the King of glory!

This was written as a song, most believe it was written for the Ark of the Covenant when it was carried into the tent pitched by David for it, or possibly the Temple built by Solomon.  And it clearly has the dual, prophetic meaning of Jesus at his ascension.

I am amazed once more this morning at God’s Word.  It is so multifaceted and rich.  One could spend about a minute reading Psalm 24, or one could meditate on it for all eternity.  Reading the Bible is our opportunity to fall deeper and deeper in love with Jesus every day.
