Psalm 24

Everything and everyone belongs to God
Because God created everything
God created everyone to share in divine glory
And that includes me
I belong to God
God wants me to be content, to live in truth
To recognize truth and respond to it
In truth, God blesses and saves me
Even from myself
If I – like that great cloud of witnesses
Turn to the bright light of God’s face
Away from the darkness of my fears and doubts
So let me lift up my thoughts, lift up my feelings, lift up my actions
Each day
Lift them up to my sovereign God
Who is this God of glory?
God is strong and mighty
Strong enough, mighty enough to conquer my troubles
So let me lift up my thoughts, lift up my feelings, lift up my actions
Each day
Lift them up to my sovereign God
Who is this God of glory?
None other than the true God, the mightiest God
Ruler of glory, Bringer of light, Conqueror of fears.
Amen

One thought on “Psalm 24

  1. I love your cloud of witnesses….I like your way of spelling out fears of mankind in these psalms…..fear of self as you say here. Yeah. Yes. so true at times. We get forlorn or even just bored. We need not be idle. Meditation can be good. Prayer nice and great. My Bible calls this one, something like…..The Entrance of the Divine King. I appreciate your spared down version. Holy God, Holy Mighty, Holy Immortal One, have mercy on us. Later, Adrienne…..
