Who shall ascend the hill of the LORD?
And who shall stand in his holy place?
He who has clean hands and a pure heart,
who does not lift up his soul to what is false
and does not swear deceitfully.
He will receive blessing from the LORD
and righteousness from the God of his salvation.

The Psalmist was inquiring who can come into the presence of God and as he prayed, he got the answer and declared that only those with clean hands and pure heart shall see the King of Glory, the Lord of Hosts. We have to be able to see God for who He is and let our prayer address Him as the King of Glory and Lord of Hosts. As Lord of Hosts, He is leading the army to fight based on His leading and as the army fights, the King of Glory is seen. How do you see God? What might be a hindrance in your life to seeing God in all His splendor? Prayer is the key to helping you to have a better understanding of God. Pray and keep on praying.
