A King of Glory
Of David. A psalm.
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.
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.
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.
My blood cleans your hands and purifies your hearts. I have provided the way for you. I am your salvation and I am your peace. I am your exceeding great reward. I hear you, My love. I hear your desperate heart cry. I hear you calling out to Me, yes even in the middle of the night I hear you and I notice your desperate plea. My heart jumps to be with you in that moment, knowing that your soul is being renewed, is being healed, is beginning to prosper.
Now is the time that I am moving to come into your life, into your situation, into your circumstances, into the very substance of your living. The door is opened, I am coming to establish My Kingdom in the place of your soul, in the place of your deep soul … making a forever change to how you think and how you feel and how you even make choices. The door has been opened, the way has been provided for you. I am coming in and establishing everything needed in you and for you. My Kingdom is coming to hearts that are desperate for Me.
How desperate are you? How very desperate are you for Me? Not what I can do for you, but how desperate are you for Me, for knowing Me, for finding Me, for following Me?
In you, My love, I have found a heart that desires Me more than any other. In you, My precious bride-to-be, I have found a heart cry that has reached My ears. In you, My holy people, I have found a desperate hunger for Me. Allow Me in. Allow the King of glory in.
