Lifted Up


Psalm 21:3 “You welcomed him with rich blessings and placed a crown of pure gold on his head.”

[You crowned David as king, after his long wait of living years as an outlaw. And you crowned Jesus as Savior, after His 30 year wait, then after His 3 years of intense work followed by his immense suffering.

And every day you crown us as children of the King with love and compassion (Ps 104:4), continually pouring out abundant, good and gracious blessings on us.]

Psalm 21:4 “He asked you for life, and you gave it to him—length of days, forever and ever.”

You gave David life on earth—you protected him in all the battles he was in; and you gave David eternal life with you.

[In his death, you granted Jesus resurrection; He rose to eternal life and then passes it on to all who believe in Him, David included.

And we, as your children, have eternity before us–length of days forever and ever–and can rejoice now in the certainty of it.]

You have given us rich blessings in Jesus: forgiveness, cleansing us for sin, adopted into the family of God, made a citizen of Heaven and equipped for special service. In addition we have an “an inheritance that can never perish, spoil or fade. This inheritance is kept in heaven for you, who through faith are shielded by God’s power until the coming of the salvation that is ready to be revealed in the last time.” 1 Peter 1:4,5

Help us, Lord, to live in this reality, knowing that we are passionately accepted, fully approved of and deeply cared for. To live with you is like having a bit of heaven now, like the picture here. We praise you for your rich and high love for us.
