Royalty

“Lord, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth!” Psalm 8:9 

The word majestic is how David begins and ends this Psalm. What a testament to the beginning and end of all we do. When we begin with the perspective that God’s name rules overall and ends, with the same conclusion we have found victory.  

The trouble begins when we place ourselves or anything God has created above His majesty. When we desire to rule His Kingdom in our way instead of serving under His service. The temptation comes when the enticement for power begins. When we stop looking towards the majestic and start looking toward the seed of pride we trip on what is significant in life. 

We were created as royalty, and submission to the King is what David had learned. Learning submission begins in professing and living under the allegiance of the King. David knew God as Lord which means He surrendered His life to His majestic ways. He understood that the Lord could conquer all his giants, and David did not fear. He understood he was in the Kingdom of His Majesty.

Keeping it Clean
in whose hands are wicked schemes, whose right hands are full of bribes. Psalm 26:10
David mentioned he washed his hands of all impurities, unlike the wicked whose hands are full of wicked schemes. But he also knew that his hands could easily lay prey, and he desired to keep his hands full of the love of God instead of participating in the wickedness around him.

How quickly we can become involved in the slightest offense when we take our cues from the world. There are many practices which may seem right in the world but don’t hold up in the Word of God. There are many ways which may even bring prosperity to our families, but our hands may have to become dirty. How quickly temptation may face us to tell a white lie or cheat to gain a bit of status, but once again we soon find our hands dirty.

It is a slippery slope, and it often starts with the small things, the ones easily justified. The question becomes, are we going to take the Word of God as our authority for the decisions we make or are we going to allow the influence of the world to guide our way? Seeking God’s Word as the authority may not always make us wealthy or the easy way, but it sure will bring abundance in the heart.
