“The LORD has established His throne in heaven, and His kingdom rules over all. Bless the LORD, you His angels, who excel in strength, who do His word, heeding the voice of His word. Bless the LORD, all you His hosts, you ministers of His, who do His pleasure. Bless the LORD, all His works, in all places of His dominion. Bless the LORD, O my soul!” (Psalm 103:19-22)
God has already established His kingdom. Jesus came preaching “the kingdom of God is at hand.” If you are a Christian and you know Him personally, then you are living in the Kingdom of God. It is a kingdom in the spirit right now, but one day it will be manifested in the earth. To believers it is a daily reality.
He commands three types of hosts to bless Him 1) His angels, 2) His ministers and 3) all places of His dominion. That covers everything in creation I’d say! We are all commanded to bless His name. What does this mean? It means to acknowledge His Lordship. It means to thank Him for everything He has done for you and through you. It means to praise Him because He is the Great and Mighty God. The One who saves us.
Did you know that praise and worship to Him is actually ministering to Him? It is. Every day we need to praise Him because He has given everything for you. His most precious heart: Jesus–He put to death so you could live eternally with Him in His kingdom. He paid for your citizenship in His kingdom.
Open the door of your heart if He is knocking on it right now as your read these words. He loves you like nobody else could ever hope to.
