Psalm 24

11 A psalm of David. The earth is the LORD’S and all it holds, the world and those who live there.

2 For God founded it on the seas, established it over the rivers.

3 Who may go up the mountain of the LORD? Who can stand in his holy place?

42 “The clean of hand and pure of heart, who are not devoted to idols, who have not sworn falsely.

5 They will receive blessings from the LORD, and justice from their saving God.

6 Such are the people that love the LORD, that seek the face of the God of Jacob.” Selah

73 Lift up your heads, O gates; rise up, you ancient portals, that the king of glory may enter.

8 Who is this king of glory? The LORD, a mighty warrior, the LORD, mighty in battle.

9 Lift up your heads, O gates; rise up, you ancient portals, that the king of glory may enter.

10 Who is this king of glory? The LORD of hosts is the king of glory. Selah (NAB)

 

From the Catechism of the Catholic Church

 

The Holy Scriptures repeatedly confess the universal power of God. He is called the “Mighty One of Jacob,” the “Lord of hosts,” the “strong and mighty” one. If God is almighty “in heaven and on earth,” it is because he made them. Nothing is impossible with God, who disposes his works according to his will. He is the Lord of the universe, whose order he established and which remains wholly subject to him and at his disposal. He is master of history, governing hearts and events in keeping with his will: “It is always in your power to show great strength, and who can withstand the strength of your arm?” (CCC, 269)

One Response to Psalm 24

    Whenever I accomplish something that I feel is good, I have a tendancy to say to myself, “Good job. I did really good.” I need to say, “Thank you, Lord. You have blessed me by giving me the gifts I needed to accomplish this deed. Only by the grace of God.
