Psalm 99

Good morning everyone.  Though it might be any time of day...it is morning as I type this.  I just finished reading Psalm 99.  No matter how many times I read the word, I find something new.

This morning was no exception.  I found so many words that describle our Lord.  HE IS HOLY, HE IS GREAT, HE IS EXALTED, HE IS MIGHTY, FORGIVING, JUST, and we respond with TREMBLING, SHAKING, PRAISE, WORSHIP, AND CALL ON HIS NAME, KEEP HIS STATUTES, AND EXALT HIM.

Do we liken him to a buddy that we give out list of woes to?  A genie in a bottle who will grant our every wish?  I think not. He truly is our friend in that he loves us and wants the best for us.  Yet never forget he has the power to turn us into dust at the flick of an eyelash.

He is approachable and our heavenly Father.  We owe him the respect that a child shows to his or her father.  A small child does not run to a father with a list of demands.  One who does so will receive reprimand.

We are to know that he is able and wants to meet our needs. He knows what is best for us.  He deserves our praise and worship.Like a father, he loves to spend time with us.  Speak to Him all through the day.   We are to come close to Him and speak in reverence to the King of Kings.
Tell Him what is in your heart.  Go boldly to the throne of God.  Just remember who He is.
