Psalms of the Salter: Some Thoughts on Really Living for the Lord (Psalm 99)

07 Feb

Psalm 99

The Lord reigns,screen-shot-2016-10-16-at-5-47-25-am
    let the nations tremble;
he sits enthroned between the cherubim,
    let the earth shake.
Great is the Lord in Zion;
    he is exalted over all the nations.
Let them praise your great and awesome name—
    he is holy.

The King is mighty, he loves justice
    you have established equity;
in Jacob you have done
    what is just and right.
Exalt the Lord our God
    and worship at his footstool;
    he is holy.

Moses and Aaron were among his priests,
    Samuel was among those who called on his name;
they called on the Lord
    and he answered them.
He spoke to them from the pillar of cloud;
    they kept his statutes and the decrees he gave them.

Lord our God,
    you answered them;
you were to Israel a forgiving God,
    though you punished their misdeeds.
Exalt the Lord our God
    and worship at his holy mountain,
    for the Lord our God is holy.

    I like to think of being holy as being “set apart” to God: He redeemed me, adopted me, and is with me daily. I’m to be loyal to Him–separate from all other gods, religions, and worldviews–by acknowledging His ways as righteous, just, and kind and making every effort to learn and live according to His Word.
