How can 2018 be your best year yet? Be of the “…generation of them that seek him…” the King of glory. “…and serve him with a perfect heart and with a willing mind: for the LORD searcheth all hearts, and understandeth all the imaginations of the thoughts: if thou seek him, he will be found of thee…and the King of glory shall come in.(Ps. 24:6a; 1Chron. 28:9; Ps. 24:7b).
“Who is the King of glory? The LORD strong and mighty…Thine, O LORD, is the greatness, and the power, and the glory, and the victory and the majesty: for all that is in the heaven and in the earth is thine; thine is the kingdom, O LORD, and thou art exalted as head above all. Both riches and honour come of thee, and thou reignest over all; and in thine hand is power and might; and in thine hand it is to make great, and to give strength unto all…Now to him that is of power to stablish you according to my gospel, and the preaching of Jesus Christ…To God only wise, be glory through Jesus Christ for ever. Amen. (1Chron. 29:11,12; Rom. 16:25,27).
“…the LORD mighty in battle…For the eyes of the LORD run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to shew himself strong in the behalf of them whose heart is perfect toward him…The angel of the LORD encampeth round about them that fear him, and delivereth them…He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler.” (2Chron. 16:9; Ps. 34:7; 91:4).
The challenge is before you, be of “…the generation of them that seek him…O taste and see that the LORD is good…” Answer, “When thou saidst, Seek ye my face, my heart said unto thee, Thy face, LORD, will I seek…O God of my salvation…Teach me thy way…lead me in a plain path…believe to see the goodness of the LORD…And…Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the LORD.”(Ps. 24:6; 34:8; 27:8,11,13,14).
2018 can begin the best year of your life no matter what it brings. With the King of glory as your King you will emerge a conqueror.
“And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose…What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us? He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things…Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.” Rom. 8:28,31,37).
“Who is this King of glory? The LORD of hosts, he is the King of glory.” Ps. 24:10.
Is He your King?
