My God is…seated on His Royal Throne Psalm 47:7-9

Psalm 47:7-9 – For God is the King of all the earth;Royalty's Throne. Ornate. On White sing to him a psalm of praise.

God reigns over the nations;
God is seated on his holy throne.
The nobles of the nations assemble
as the people of the God of Abraham,
for the kings of the earth belong to God;
he is greatly exalted.

For God is the King of all the earth

What does it mean for us that God is King? It should mean a lot to us. God is the King, and He is a good King. Not only is He our King, but He is also our Father, and that makes us part of the royal family. We are inheriting from Him much more than we can ever give back to Him.

God reigns over the nations

Sometimes we think that God can’t handle what we’ve got going on. Sometimes we thing it’s too big or too small for Him, but God is in the details. He is in charge of all things. Over all the nations, all the people, all the animals, all the cells and all the atoms. He’s got them all under His power. He can do anything. In Matthew 19:26 we read, “Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”” If you want something big changed, you might contact your senator or your congressman. But what if you had access to the President. wouldn’t it be better to ask Him. We’re able to go right to the top, in fact we have Jesus interceding for us at all times (Romans 8:34 – Who then is the one who condemns? No one. Christ Jesus who died—more than that, who was raised to life—is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us.) We are blessed to have a God who hears and listens to what is important to us. We can go right to the top and ask the one who can make all things possible.

God is seated on his holy throne.

So why does it matter that God is seated on His holy throne? Have you ever seen a movie where the king enters to sit on His throne? Everyone stands and turns their attention to Him. Why? Because He’s about to get down to business. He’s ready to hear your requests, to give you advice, to celebrate with you, to send out His angels to protect you. To do all the God things He does. He has taken up His position of authority and is ready to use it. And because you are His adopted child through Christ Jesus, you’ve got an in with the Big Guy. You can have access to Him at any time. How amazingly blessed would you feel to be able to walk right up to the King? Right to His throne all the while knowing that He loves you as He loves His own Son. He took action for you and me that day. He had Jesus shed His blood so that you and I could live in Heaven with Him. He loves you that much. God is good!

Do you want some time with the King?

My God is…my king Psalm 145:1-3

Psalm 145: 1-3 I will extol you, my God and King,
and bless your name forever and ever.
Every day I will bless you
and praise your name forever and ever.
Great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised,
and his greatness is unsearchable.

Descended from Royalty

My husband and I went out to dinner with some friends last week, and they told us about a show they like on PBS called, “Finding your roots“. In the show, they trace people’s lineage back quite far using, documents, family history and DNA analysis. We watched one on Kyra Sedgwick and Kevin Bacon. Kyra found out that she is related to royalty. Would you be surprised if you found out your family was related to royalty? Would you feel more important knowing your 18th great-grandfather was royalty?

You are Royalty

You’re not just the 18th generation after a king. You’re the adopted sons and daughters of a King, our Lord Jesus Christ. We’re the children of Royalty. What does that mean for us? As adopted children into the family of our God and King, we’re promised eternal life in his palace. We will live with Him forever in paradise. We will know Him. Imagine knowing a King. There are many privileges that come with knowing the King. Our privileges don’t often show up as much on this side of heaven, but our future is secure. We know where we’re going, and that the King has prepared a room for us. We are blessed to be part of His kingdom, and part of the royal family.

What’s expected of you

So many people say that Christians are hypocrites, and I think they’re right. We make big mistakes. We don’t always treat others the way we should. Sometimes we get up on our soapbox or on our high horse and look down at others who don’t know the Lord. What is expected of us as part of God’s royal family? Should we be running around naked, drinking too much and having affairs? That’s how some in a royal family might act, but it’s not what is expected from someone of position. We have a position, and it’s important that we work to reflect our King to the world around us. Not because it gets us into the palace, but because we care so much about the King that we wouldn’t want to tarnish His name. I pray that I am a good reflection of the title Christian.

Do you respect your title?
