The earth is the Lord's and everything in it, the world, and all who live in it;
for He founded the seas and eastablished 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 the 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 hands, 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 He, this King of glory?
The LORD Almighty---
He is the King of glory.
All of creation cries out that God is God. The roar of the ocean, the gentleness of a breeze, the fragile nature, beauty and song of birds, the grace peacefulness of deer, the sweetness and spirit of a puppy, the force and power of a stallion... the fresh smell of rain, the roll of thunder, the warmth of the sun... they ALL proclaim He is God... the Creator and Lover of the Universe.
I love meeting Him in nature. I love to stand in the storm and feel His presence all around me. I love to sit in the quiet and feel His presence stir inside me.
The God that has created everything and to whom everything belongs... placed a piece of HIMSELF inside us in with the Holy Spirit. Have you really put your mind around that? Have you really tried to grasp that if you are a believer, God HIMSELF put a PIECE of HIMSELF INSIDE YOU? And do you know that if you seek that part of Him, if you seek Him, listen to Him and surrender to Him... it will overflow out of you and change your very breath...? It's true. Oh... is it ever true. And it is oh so sweet.
