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."
Take a moment to pause and think about what David is saying to us here. He is making a strong statement on just how huge our God really is. I found this in an article on Google:
"Now let’s examine the Psalm (song) that David wrote to herald the approach of the “King of Glory," the God of the Hebrews! The Hebrew word, “rosh," means lintel, or top, or head, as in head of the gate. The lintel is the piece of the door post that goes across the top of the frame. So to lift up the “rosh," or the head, was to lift off the lintel or the top of the door, or gate that was the entrance to the temple. The door was already over sized, but our God is so big that we’re going to have to lift the top off of the temple, just so that He can get in! Our God is way too big for these puny temples made by human hands!“
So let's take off the top of the Temple! Let's raise the roof off with songs of praise! Get out of the way devil! Our God, who is huge and mighty, awesome and powerful is ready to come in! Who is our God? It’s YHVH, the Lord Almighty, the King of Heaven and Earth!
Help me, Father, to get a better understandibg of just how enormous You really are as You enter Your temple gates in power, in glory, and in honor. The kingdom of darkness better get out of Your way! We lift up our praises and we bow our knees to you. In Jesus's name, Amen and Amen.
Blessings on the journey, and remember that the best is yet to come.
