Choose your King


“High King of Heaven, my treasure thou art.”Rulers come and rulers go.  Sometimes they are pleasing in your sight, sometimes they are not.  If you place your trust in the hearts of men, you have built a house on shifting sand.  There is only one high King to whom the universe takes its orders.  His name is Yahweh.  Choose your King and align your allegiance there. Psalm 115:2-9 (The Message)

” Not for our sake, God, no, not for our sake, but for your name’s sake, show your glory.   Do it on account of your merciful love,      do it on account of your faithful ways.   Do it so none of the nations can say,      “Where now, oh where is their God?” 3-8 Our God is in heaven      doing whatever he wants to do.   Their gods are metal and wood,      handmade in a basement shop:   Carved mouths that can’t talk,      painted eyes that can’t see,   Tin ears that can’t hear,      molded noses that can’t smell,   Hands that can’t grasp, feet that can’t walk or run,      throats that never utter a sound.   Those who make them have become just like them,      have become just like the gods they trust. 4-9 God is higher than anything and anyone,      outshining everything you can see in the skies.   Who can compare with God, our God,      so majestically enthroned,   Surveying his magnificent      heavens and earth?   He picks up the poor from out of the dirt,      rescues the wretched who’ve been thrown out with the trash,   Seats them among the honored guests,      a place of honor among the brightest and best.   He gives childless couples a family,      gives them joy as the parents of children.   Hallelujah!”
