Mid Afternoon Meditation 4-2-17

100_0746

Listen to me, O royal daughter; take to heart what I say.
    Forget your people and your family far away.
11 For your royal husband delights in your beauty;
    honor him, for he is your lord.
12 The princess of Tyre[c] will shower you with gifts.
    The wealthy will beg your favor.
13 The bride, a princess, looks glorious
    in her golden gown.
14 In her beautiful robes, she is led to the king,
    accompanied by her bridesmaids.
15 What a joyful and enthusiastic procession
    as they enter the king’s palace!

16 Your sons will become kings like their father.
    You will make them rulers over many lands.
17 I will bring honor to your name in every generation.
    Therefore, the nations will praise you forever and ever. Psalm 45:10-17

Verses 12-17 metaphorically describe the church’s procession into God’s presence. Try to extend your imagination into the reality of that event. What will it feel like?

  1. I was going to say “like graduation day’s Pomp and Circumstance”…but maybe we’ll be expected to show more reverent decorum…or maybe we won’t be able to contain ourselves, bursting out in whatever way the Spirit moves us, crazed with JOY (and I’ll be shouting, “FINALLY!”).
