Psalm 24–We Are In His House!

We are stewards in this life.  We are called to trust God and honor Him.  David is doing that very thing.  As he looks out over the earth, this mighty king is humbled because He is in God’s Kingdom. 

When one takes time to look at the wonders of nature, we can only live in awe at the intricacy and beauty that is this creation. We see from the tops of the highest peaks to the depths of the deepest seas, God shows His greatness and love for us in all He has produced.

David reminds us that this is His house and we need to have the right hearts to enter it, and we need to treat the Lord and His house with great respect.  So much of our lives cause us to focus upon our stuff and our needs.  We errantly seek first our priorities and our desires over the priorities and desires of others.  We also put our desires and needs ahead of the desires and needs of God. 

We must remember, as David remembered, that this is all God’s stuff and we need to hold on to it loosely and live gratefully that he allows us each access.  If we will, then He would bless us beyond measure and would allow us to grasp the wonder of His creation.

Jesus said it best in His Sermon on the Mount, “Seek first the Kingdom of God and His Righteousness. Then all these things, (Food, clothes, shelter, security, and peace) will be added to you!  We need to live as though we are guests in our Father’s house and show God and His creation the reverence and respect they deserve.

God Bless You

The earth is the Lord’s, and everything in it,
    the world, and all who live in it;
for he founded it on the seas
    and established it on the waters.

Who may ascend the mountain of the Lord?
    Who may stand in his holy place?
The one who has clean hands and a pure heart,
    who does not trust in an idol
    or swear by a false god.[a]

They will receive blessing from the Lord
    and vindication from God their Savior.
Such is the generation of those who seek him,
    who seek your face, God of Jacob.[b][c]

Lift up your heads, you gates;
    be lifted up, you ancient doors,
    that the King of glory may come in.
Who is this King of glory?
    The Lord strong and mighty,
    the Lord mighty in battle.
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 is an amazing Journey. I hope you will hear from the Lord, as you seek Him with your heart. Matthew 6:33
