   This Psalm brings about the start of the Psalms connection of the Davidic Covenant and the Promise of the King of Kings, the Messiah, Jesus Christ.  The promise that David’s throne would be eternal will only be complete when Jesus reigns forever in His eternal kingdom.(2 Sam. 7:13-26closeERROR: The IP key is no longer supported.

   In verses one and two David breaks out in praise and worship for God’s strength, salvation, and answers to his prayers.  This sets the tone of thanksgiving and praise, glorifying God for all the blessings as His chosen king.  While we are not genetically part of the line of David, we have been grafted into God’s family by faith and trust in Jesus Christ and we will rule and reign and worship in His eternal kingdom.  7 For the king trusts in the LORD, and through the steadfast love of the Most High he shall not be moved.

   Verses 8-12 tell the story of God’s victories provided over our enemies both now and in the future.  Sometimes David didn’t get to see the victories in the timing he desired, but he knew God would come through and judge the enemies that came against God’s people.  We can have this assurance in our lives, no matter how much it seems that the enemy is winning the struggles and battles the words “You will, the Lord will” bring out our faith in the steadfast love of the Lord in our lives.  He will set things right!  We can continue our worship as David did; 13 Be exalted, O LORD, in your strength!  We will sing and praise your power.
