Behold, bless the Lord, All you servants of the Lord, Who by night stand in the house of the Lord! Lift up your hands in the sanctuary, And bless the Lord. The Lord who made heaven and earth bless you from Zion! Psalm 134 NKJV
The psalmist was exhorting his people to bless God. This is also a closing blessing to the pilgrim Psalms.
Are you a servant of the Lord? What makes you His servant? Is it living a sinless life? Is it giving away everything you own to the poor? Is it living off the grid and turning your back on the world system?
God created Adam and Eve in His image and likeness. He created them to have dominion over the earth. God blessed them and said, “Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it.”
God created the first man and woman to live in a special relationship wherein they would represent Him on the earth. They were to reign with Him over the creatures God created to live upon the earth.
Adam and Eve failed to live up to their calling. They disobeyed God. They surrendered the authority to represent Him. Satan became the god of this world. Sin and death are his offspring!
Satan loses authority over us when we surrender our hearts and lives to Jesus. We are no longer children of the devil. Sin and death do not reign over us. We become servants of Almighty God!
You can bless the Lord if you are His servant. You can stand before Him at all hours of the day and night just as if you had never sinned!
The place where you have set your feet is holy ground. It is holy because the temple of Jesus Christ has been set up in your heart. Lift-up your hands to the Lord in the sanctuary of your soul. Bless the Jesus today!
Jesus is pronouncing a blessing on you today. He is sending you out to represent Him everywhere you go. Jesus wants you to be fruitful by sharing the Word of God with people so His servants can multiply on the earth!
It may appear as if evil is gaining the upper hand. It is not. God is in control. Evil will prosper for a season. It will be a short one. Jesus is going to subdue and ultimately eliminate all evil. His Kingdom will cover every corner of creation. His servants will reign with Him!
You do not have to be a spiritual superstar to serve Jesus. You have the freedom to serve Him today. Let the light of God’s love shine through the darkness in your corner of the world. Bless the Lord who made heaven and earth today and every day!
