Meditation on Psalm 45
Lord, here in this Psalm, YOU Messiah JESUS are foretold. Help me see YOU. Grant me a greater and greater vision of your beauty. Help these words to open my heart to YOUR greatness.
“More than 1900 years ago there was a man born contrary to the laws of life. This man lived in poverty and was reared in obscurity. He did not travel extensively. Only once did he cross the boundary of the country in which he lived, and that was during his exile in childhood. He possessed neither wealth nor influence. His relatives were inconspicuous and had neither training nor formal education. Yet in infancy he startled a king, in childhood he puzzled doctors, in manhood he ruled the course of nature, walked upon the billows as if pavements, and hushed the sea to sleep. He healed the multitudes without medicine and made no charge for his service. He never wrote a book. Yet all the libraries of the country could not hold the books that have been written about him. He never wrote a song. Yet he has furnished the theme for more songs than all the songwriters combined. He never founded a college. But all the schools put together cannot boast of having so many students. He never marshaled an army nor drafted a soldier nor fired a gun. Yet no leader ever had more volunteers, who have, under his orders, made more rebels stack their arms and surrender without a shot fired. He never practiced psychiatry. And yet he has healed more broken hearts than all the doctors far and near. He stands forth upon the highest pinnacle of heaven’s glory, proclaimed of God, acknowledged by angels, adored by saints, feared by devils, as the living, personal Lord Jesus Christ — my Lord and Savior.” Jim Burns No Compromise
Messiah Jesus my king help my faith in YOU grow! Help my awe of YOU grow. Let my understanding of YOUR victory on the cross and in the resurrection put at peace all my fears.
Demonstrate YOUR defeat of the world, the flesh and the devil in my life this day. Rule over me KING Jesus!
YOUR throne great Savior and God Jesus is forever and ever. YOUR kingdom is one of righteousness, truth, and grace.
Come now and let YOUR bride, YOUR Church be filled with YOUR presence and joy. Let the beauty of the Queen of heaven, YOUR Church, be seen and may she abide in YOU and bear YOUR fruit of LOVE into this needy world.
LORD, renew, revive, cleanse, convict, restore, and reform YOUR Queen. May all nations give praise to the Church, the body of Messiah Jesus, for reflecting the truth and love of the KING in words and deeds consistently before all the people of the earth.
LORD, give us YOUR vision of who we are in YOU that we may become what we are called to be in YOU.
KING MESSIAH, SAVE YOUR COVENANT CHILDREN AND REVIVE THEM WITH TRUE FAITH. BREATHE UPON THE BONES AND GIVE THEM LIFE. RAISE THE DEAD TO LIFE. AWAKEN US! HELP US! BEFORE YOUR RETURN FILL THE EARTH WITH TRUE FAITH. MAKE US READY FOR PERSECUTION. LORD HAVE MERCY AND HELP US PREPARE.
COME OH KING ETERNAL!
