The Kingdom of God Has Come

1 O Lord, who shall sojourn in Your tent? Who shall dwell on Your holy hill? 2 He who walks blamelessly and does what is right and speaks truth in his heart; 3 who does not slander with his tongue and does no evil to his neighbor, nor takes up a reproach against his friend; ~ Psalms 15:1-3

The Psalmist is asking God a very pertinent question.

LORD, who shall sojourn in your tent?

In other words, who can live in Your anointing? When Jesus came, He introduced us to the kingdom of God. The kingdom of God is where the power is. For He said that if He drove out demons by the finger of God, then the kingdom of God had come upon them.

This is the question the Psalmist is asking. This is the question we all want to know the answer to.

How can I get that power?

God answers the Psalmist immediately. Why? Because He wants His people to have access to the power of His kingdom. Because without it, what are we? Think about it. We obey an officer of the law not because of them but because they have the power of the state backing them. So, it is with us. On our own, we are nothing. We are powerless. But when we have the kingdom of God behind us, we have all the power of the Holy Spirit behind us.  

So, we must:

  • Walk blamelessly
  • Do what’s right
  • Speak Truth in our heart
  • Refrain from slander
  • Do not plot evil against our neighbor
  • Do not think bad/evil thoughts against your friend
  • No backbiting
  • Rather we are to love our neighbor as ourselves

If you do these things, you will walk in the anointing and the power. It’s all about the relationship. We can say whatever we like, but when it comes down to it, if we have no relationship with God Almighty, we have nothing.

LORD God, help me to seek out a relationship with You. Search me, oh God, and cleanse me from all unrighteousness. Remove all malice, hurt, deceit, hypocrisy, envy, slander, sexual immorality, depression, fear, or anything that can hinder my relationship with You. Teach me Your ways and Your statutes. Fill me with Your Holy Spirit that I might walk in the paths of righteousness and work in Your Holy Kingdom. In Jesus’ Name, I pray, amen.
