Read Psalm 21 today.
How has God provided for the King?
For what does the psalmist give thanks in this psalm?
Why do God’s enemies deserve judgment?
God provides for his people.
As you reflect on this, pray in these ways and any other way the Holy Spirit leads.
Pray to feel God’s presence with you today.
Pray for others to experience the joy of God’s blessings.
Pray for those who do not yet know God, that they might be saved through a relationship with Jesus Christ.
Pray that hope, peace, and justice one day reach all the ends of the earth.
Through Your Strength
For the end times, to the Pure and Shining One
David’s poem of praise
1 Yahweh, because of your strength the king is strong.
Look how he rejoices in you!
He bursts out with a joyful song because of your victory!
2 For you have given him his heart’s desire,
anything and everything he asks for.
You haven’t withheld a thing from the king.
Pause in his presence
3 Rich blessings overflow with every encounter with you,
and you placed a royal crown of gold upon his head.
4 He wanted life—you have given it to him and more!
The days of his blessing stretch on one after another, forever!
5 You have honored him and made him famous.
Glory-garments are upon him,
and you surround him with splendor and majesty.
6 Your victory heaps blessing after blessing upon him.
What joy and bliss he tastes, rejoicing before your face!
7 For the king trusts in Yahweh,
and he will never stumble, never fall.
The forever-love of the Most High holds him firm.
8 Your almighty hands have captured your foes.
You uncovered all who hate you and you seized them.
9-10When you appear before them,
unveiling the radiance of your face,
they will be consumed by the fierce fire of your presence.
Yahweh’s flames will swallow them up.
They and their descendants
will be destroyed by an unrelenting fire.
11We will watch them fail,
for these are the ones who plan their evil schemes against the Lord.
12They will turn and run at the sight of your judgment-arrows
aimed straight at their hearts.
13Rise up and put your might on display!
By your strength we will sing and praise your glorious power!
