Psalm 24:7-10

When You Feel Dreary, Think About This

Do you ever have a dreary day?  You know – a day where you feel blah?  Life doesn’t seem so grand? When that happens remember that the King of Glory is inside of you.  Read Psalm 24:7-10  with that in mind.

“Lift up your heads, O gates,
And be lifted up, O ancient doors,
That the KING of GLORY may come in!
Who is the  KING of GLORY?
The Lord strong and mighty,
The Lord mighty in battle.
Lift up your heads, O gates,
And lift them up, O ancient doors,
That the  KING of GLORY may come in!
Who is this  KING of GLORY?
The Lord of hosts,
He is the  KING of GLORY.”

This psalm points to Christ, the King of Glory, taking His throne.  “Glory” in this song means “majesty, splendor.” What’s amazing and will redirect us if we’re having a blah day is to remember Jesus’s words that after He ascended to heaven He would send another just like Him to live in us. (John 14:16-17)  In other words, the Spirit of the King of Glory is in us, believers!  Instead of letting Him “in” as referenced in Psalm 24:7-10, we acknowledge that He is already in us so we ask Him to “fill” us. (Ephesians 5:18)

Say these truths out loud with me.

When I am weak, the King of Glory is strong. When I am tempted, the King of Glory is victor over Satan. When I feel blah, the King of Glory’s Spirit is in me to fill me. I am part of the glorious, splendid, majestic kingdom of the King of Glory.

KING OF GLORY, majestic splendor, we lift our hands and open our hearts asking You to cleanse us and fill us with Your glory.

Praise to the KING OF GLORY

“Lift up your heads, O gates,
And be lifted up, O ancient doors,
That the KING of GLORY may come in!
Who is the  KING of GLORY?
The Lord strong and mighty,
The Lord mighty in battle.
Lift up your heads, O gates,
And lift them up, O ancient doors,
That the  KING of GLORY may come in!
Who is this  KING of GLORY?
The Lord of hosts,
He is the  KING of GLORY.”

There are many kinds of kings: tyrant kings, good kings, lazy kings, aggressive kings. So think with me. What kind of a king do you want to rule over you? What kind of a king do you want to be subject to?
Our leader and king is the King of Glory. The word “glory” in Psalm 24 means “majesty, splendor.” We’re the most blessed of all people.

KING OF GLORY, majestic splendor, we lift up our hands and hearts in praise of You.
