The King of Glory

Who is the King of Glory? The Lord strong and mighty. The Lord invincible in battle…
the God of Angel Armies, he is the King of Glory.” Ps 24:8&10

It is so easy to get wrapped up in the moment, to work hard all day and week building the kingdom of me. It’s my natural tendency to look out for myself first. The Psalmist shatters this thinking and reminds me that I am not in charge, I answer to a king, The King of Glory. My guess is that those who were under the rule of a king in days gone by, did not really appreciate being “servants” to the king. In contrast, the King we get to serve is strong, mighty, invincible in battle, He is the God of Angel armies. Talk about an ally. He has all the qualities that I desire, deserves all the reverence of a king, and all the while He offers friendship. The King of all things offers friendship and partnership to me today.

Prayer: You have so many qualities that I want. Graft those qualities of strength and might in me. I am under your authority. Amen
