" So shall the KING greatly desire thy beauty; for HE is thy LORD; and worship thou HIM. " Psalm 45:11
As I was reading though the Psalms the other day, I came across Psalm 45.. a Psalm where I stopped a bit and meditated...
The love of Christ, my King.... I was reminded yet again of Christ's work on my behalf... making me a child of God.
And the Lord's desire for me...
That my garments would smell beautiful. (verse 8)
- " For we are unto God a sweet savour of Christ..." 2 Corinthians 2:15
That I might be all glorious from within. (verse 13)
- "A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh." Ezekiel 36:26
That my clothing would be of wrought gold. (verse 13)
- "I put on righteousness, and it clothed me..." Job 29:14
What a wonderful reminder the Psalm was to me ... that God has done a beautiful work for me. And I am to reflect the image of His Righteousness in how I live...
... for I have been given the Royal garments... made a child of the KING.
There's been a change of raiment... a robe of righteousness, a garment of salvation... and a new heart.
"... put on the new man, which after God
in righteousness and true holiness. "
Therefore, my heart shall rejoice and be glad... for I can enter the King's palace!
May you be encouraged to shine brightly as a child... of a Righteous and Holy King.
