Sunday's Psalm

The best days are when I wake up early in the morning and read the living and active Word of God. I don't know how, but it fills my soul. It is refreshing. It is pure. It is good.

I want to focus my heart in worship this morning before I go and meet with other believers at church. I want to begin my worship now. Yes, it means a sacrifice of sleep, but after I get some good wake-up coffee I find that the Word of God never leaves me unsatisfied. Sleep I can do another time. This is holy ground right now. 

Psalm 24

The earth is the LORD's, and everything in it,
the world and all who live in it;
for he founded it upon the seas
and established it upon the waters. 

Who may ascend the hill of the LORD?
Who may stand in his holy place?
He who has clean hands and a pure heart,
who does not lift up his soul to an idol
or swear by what is false.
He will receive blessing from the LORD
and vindication from God his Savior.
Such is the generation of those who seek him, 
who seek your face, O God of Jacob.

Lift up your heads, O you gates;
be lifted up, you ancient doors,
that the King of glory may come in.
Who is this King of glory?
The LORD strong and mighty
The LORD mighty in battle.
Lift up your heads, O you gates;
lift them up, you ancient doors,
that the King of glory may come in. 
Who is this King of glory? 
The Lord Almighty -- 
he is the King of glory. 

Lord, your Word, your laws are good. To live uprightly and with you is better than anything else on this earth. Please help my feeble feet to follow. Teach me to walk in your ways because your ways are better than life itself. Help me to move and breathe and walk in you today.
