My God the King


My mouth shall speak the praise of the Lord, and all flesh shall bless His Holy name forever and ever. Psalm 145:21

This psalm was written by the beloved psalmist David, and the verse above is the last verse of this psalm. He was King David, but in this Psalm, he begins by establishing that the title of kingship belongs first to God the true king.

Verse 1

I will exalt you, my God, the King; I will praise your name forever and ever.
Earthly kings are revered by their kingdoms and subjects when they exude noble traits. Today, let us look at the magnificence of the King above all kings unfolded in this Psalm. The king of the universe is mindful of you. Everything in this Psalm is directly relevant to you. How amazing! His Highness and Holiness are passionate about you.

Verse 8

The Lord is gracious and compassionate, slow to anger, and rich in love.

We are children of God today because of His rich love towards us, and yet sometimes we feel pressured by lies and negative thoughts that our love for God is not adequate and that it would in turn change His goodness towards us. We must remind ourselves that we love Him because He first loved us. He is slow to anger. Any pursuit of God by the human heart is initiated by the King of Kings Himself. Take off the pressure and choose to obey the word of God. If we love Him we will obey his commandments.

Verses 13-17

The psalmist further describes God, our King, as faithful, trustworthy, and righteous. We are often faced with the fiery trials of life, but we can rest assured that the God and King we serve are with us and for us. When we fall, He lifts us. When we look at Him, He lifts us up. When we are bowed down, He lifts us up. No matter how difficult or painful our position, He is with us, and He is moving on our behalf.

Verse 19, 20

He is our God and King, and He promises to provide, protect, and defend His people. and so let our response to Him be like the psalmist; let today our mouth speak the praise of the Lord; and let us bless His Holy Name forever.
