What Do They Have To Do With Each Other

Good morning my friends,

Okay, so I am tired of the regular way of doing the devotions. I enjoy much more the interactive stuff so here is what we are going to do. I want you to read Psalm 24, then watch the video I have included. After this I want you to comment on how these are related to each other and how they apply to your life. It should only take you 30 minutes, tops.

Psalm 24

Video

Enjoy. I am looking forward to reading what you come up with.

Well that was a good devotion. I think its trying to reflect that God is the king of glory and with him we can fly and touch the sky. But without him we are just a.....a...a bird with an iron ball attached to its foot..(like in the song)

I really did like this type of devotions.I think that the verse and the video tell us that we should never stop trying.

Noah said...

ya interesting so i thought of it like in the verse God is in charge of everything and we are the bird that couldn't fly because of the rock and he waited until the song was over to cut the rope so God waits until the right time to set us free maybe.

This was pretty cool. I'm not sure, but I think they say that God is in control of everything.

This devotion was special... but what I understand is that we should lay on God(Almighty) who will encourage us to continue in our way (good).

Nice song, nice video, nice verse. But I dont really see where they relate to each other. Uumm.. The verse talks about God and how everything is his and those who seek him will be blessed. The song talks about trying to 'fly' while being 'tied down'. Unless of course I missed something... Wait... unless the flying bit is supposed to represent, so to speak, us trying to seek God's face, but we are 'tied down' by the things of this world, and the end where the bird is cut loose to fly away and be at rest supposed to be the blessing the verse talks about?
Hot? Cold? Warm.... ish?

Some of you did very well with this exercise. Others of you completely missed the point. (Yes, Brandon, the bird is blue).

The fact is that we can only gain our freedom to be who we were created to be through our Creator. The psalm tells the gates to open up. IN our lives our spiritual heart represents the gates of our lives.

Just as the bird presented himself to his creator to be released we too must open our gates to our Creator so he can "release" us into the "greatness" he has called us to, so that we may soar.

Just as the bird struggled to free himself so do we; but we can't do it on our own.
