Psalm 45 – Rejoice in the Groom, Respond to His Love

Whenever things are shaky around you, whenever you are afraid, just remember that God is on His righteous throne, which He deserves. It was not given to Him. He didn’t purchase it. He didn’t have to conquer kingdoms to get it. Our eternal God is on His eternal throne. “Your throne, O God, is forever and ever.”

Many rulers in history thought their thrones would endure forever. But those thrones were toppled. In fact, we have to search through history books just to find the names of long-forgotten kings and queens. Not so with Jesus Christ. His throne is not ruined by the ravages of time. It is eternal and righteous, and it can never be overthrown by the attacks of men. Whatever our Lord does is right. He never rules unjustly, and He never causes evil. His scepter is righteous.

To fight against the throne of God is foolish, because that is fighting against something eternal, righteous and holy. God wants to rule in our lives. That’s why it’s important for us to bow before Him and say, “I crown You King of my life. You shall receive the glory.” Let the eternal throne of God rule in your life today.

Have you recognized God’s authority and rule in your life? One day, every knee shall bow before Him (Phil. 2:10). Do you know Jesus as your Lord of lords and King of kings? If not, bow before Him now and allow Him to rule in your life.

Warren Wiersbe

Read Psalm 45 and consider the author’s words of praise and exultation in the King.  Do we admire our King as much as worldly people admire their little gods? What would it look like if we were really impressed with our King Jesus?  What sorts of things encourage you to honor and praise Jesus your King?
