Blessings from the King of Glory-November 24, 2013am
Who is this King of Glory? He is Creator, Lord, and King. The earth and everything in it is his. When we are tempted to question God or whether we are blessed I think Job offers some answers. When God speaks in Job 38 he first tells Job he intends to ask some questions. God begins with were you there at creation that you can instruct me about it? It is in creation we begin to see and understand the magnitude of his majesty. God continues making Job quite aware of who he is, God, and it makes Job more aware that he is not. Job responds with I spoke without understanding, things too wonderful for me to know. And I heard you but now I see you and repent in dust and ashes.
He is Lord and has no equal. He is the King of Glory and there is no end to his reign. Thanksgiving is understanding our place so that we understand his grace. He doesn’t bless us because he has to but because he desires to and is able to do so. All blessings flow from the throne of the King of Glory. His greatest and most powerful blessing is his presence, and for that we should all be thankful. Unless you do not know him as King.
He is Creator and able to bless and does so by giving us life and sharing his presence. He is Lord and to him there is no equal. To ascend to the hill of the Lord is only possible through his grace. He is th King of Glory. His Kingdom is eternal and so the blessing of the presence of the King.
Who is the King of Glory? You may have heard of him, the Lord Almighty. The better questions may be first, have you seen him and second, do you know him and third, is he your King? When we know he is Creator, Lord, and King it is easy to be thankful because we recognize the blessing of his presence in our lives and our presence in his Kingdom.
He is my King! I wonder do you know him today?
