Lift Up Your Heads



July 31, 2020


Psalm 24:7-10 (KJV)

7 "Lift up your heads, O ye gates; and be ye lift up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in.

8 "Who is this King of glory? The Lord strong and mighty, the Lord mighty in battle.

9 "Lift up your heads, O ye gates; even lift them up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in.

10 "Who is this King of glory? The Lord of hosts, he is the King of glory. Selah."


I have always loved reading this portion of scripture, and even wrote a song about it. When I look at its context, I think about a time when all I could do was hang my head in shame. Then Jesus rescued me from a life of despair and gave me purpose. He filled me with hope for the future, and I no longer hang my head in shame.


Leading up to Psalm 24, we read in Psalm 22 these words spoken "My God, my God, why has thou forsaken me?" In Matthew 27:46 we hear our Lord and Savior crying out these same words as he hung from the cross. In Psalm 23 we see a picture of Christ walking through the shadow of death. And now in Psalm 24 Christ entering into His glory.


The question we are asking now is, “Who is this King of Glory, strong and mighty, the Lord mighty in battle?” I say the answer to that, without a doubt, is Jesus the Son of God. So “lift up your heads oh ye gates,” your eye-gates, your ear gates, your mouth gate, and give glory to your Lord.


Father, I know that the world is in a tale spin that’s out of control and heading for utter destruction. I pray for their eyes to be open before it is too late for them. In Jesus' name, Amen.


Blessings on the journey, and remember that the best is yet to come.
