Psalm 22:29 “All the rich of the earth will feast and worship; all who go down to the dust will kneel before him—those who cannot keep themselves alive.”

[No one can keep himself from dying, none of us can defeat old age. And no one can avoid the judgment: all human beings will come under before you, Lord.

And all will bow their knee, whether willingly or not. For when we enter into your magnificent, holy presence, the strength of your mighty power and majestic authority will force all to bow in submission to truth and the judgment to come.

But you offer us the privilege of bowing before you now in willing surrender, in belief, in faith, in submission to Truth.

You bring us into your presence through the blood of Christ, where we, as your children, can joyfully bow to your Kingship, O Triune God.

And we do so willingly, wholeheartedly, in wonder and joy. For Joy is what you have for us: “These things I have spoken to you, that my joy may be in you, and that your joy may be full.” John 15:1.

This joy is not dependent on circumstances, as happiness is. No, it is dependent on knowing the All-powerful Creator of the universe who created the beautiful dawn in the picture below. AND He loves us like crazy. Let us revel in that every day, drinking in the joy He has for us.
