“Open up, ancient gates!
Open up, ancient doors,
and let the King of glory enter.”
– Psalm 24:7
Have you ever wondered about Psalm 24? Is it a praise? Is it a prayer? Is it an affirmation or a declaration.
I will tell you what it is, it’s all of the above. It’s a masterpiece… One of the greatest songs ever written on earth. It is a prayer, it is a praise, it is request and a declaration, a testimony of God’s awesome power.
It reminds me of where the Bible said “do not be anxious for nothing but in everything through prayer and thanks given, let your request be made known to the Father.”
Most importantly, Psalm 24 is an assurance of God’s intervention to grant the request of the saint, knowing fully well that He has everything in His possession.
The Psalm started with eulogy to wealth and the majesty of God. The minstrel, haven perfected his eulogy went on to warn that only those who fear God and delight in His commandments can receive from Him. Yes, God has everything but He is to be revered. He withholds nothing from His people.
Now that it has been established. The minstrel, (and this is the part I like), in verse seven, started making his request, crafted in an encompassing declaration. He commanded the “gates and ancient doors” to open up so that the King of glory can come in.
Have you ever wondered where the King wants to enter? God is the possessor of heaven and earth, where will He need permission to enter? Of course, your life and circumstances!
God has given us freewill so except you call Him into the situation, He will not meddle in the affair. He wants you to recognise His Lordship and willingly surrender to Him so that He can have His way with you. And the beautiful thing is that the minstrel compared the situation with “ancient doors” that means God’s supremacy is everlasting to everlasting and there is no situation, circumstance, sin that condemns you, that is bigger than His saving power and grace! This is why the minstrel ended by alluding to his mightiness in battle… Hallelujah!
