  Study Tools

BIG IDEA:

THY KINGDOM COME (IN THE PERSON OF THE MESSIAH AND HIS

RULE) / SHOWERS OF BLESSING

INTRODUCTION:

Clearly a Messianic Psalm; the prayers of David (partially and typically fulfilled in Solomon) repeated as the prayers of Solomon with the ultimate Son of David clearly in view

I. (:1-4) MAY HE JUDGE THE PEOPLE OF GOD WITH RIGHTEOUSNESS AND BRING JUSTICE TO THE AFFLICTED

The Source of that Righteousness and Justice = God

MAY HE BRING RIGHTEOUSNESS AND JUSTICE TO THE AFFLICTED (:4)

- VINDICATE THE AFFLICTED

- SAVE THE CHILDREN OF THE NEEDY

- CRUSH THE OPPRESSOR

II. (:5-7) MAY HE COME DOWN LIKE SHOWERS OF BLESSING

Who Benefits from these Blessings?

Those who fear God (:5)

the Righteous

MAY THE RIGHTEOUS FLOURISH AND PEACE SPREAD ABUNDANTLY (:7)

III. (:8-11) MAY HE RULE THE ENTIRE WORLD AND RECEIVE GIFTS FROM ALL KINGS

IV. (:12-15) MAY HIS REIGN BE CHARACTERIZED BY COMPASSION,TOWARDS THE POOR AND NEEDY

Responsibility of those who have been delivered:

pray for him continually

bless him all day long

V. (:16) MAY THERE BE MATERIAL PROSPERITY

VI. (:17-19) MAY HIS NAME BE BLESSED AND HIS GLORY FILL THE EARTH

DEVOTIONAL QUESTIONS:

1) Are we actively praying that the judgments of our rulers would reflect the righteousness of God? (For it is only God who can give the king His judgments – verse

1.)

2) How does the psalm employ the language of nature (the sun, the moon, the mountains, the rain, the fruitful grain) to illustrate the beneficial reign of the righteous king?

3) How does our blessing of the name and reign of the Messiah spill over to reap blessings on ourselves (cf. v.17)?

4) Are we looking forward to that day when all the earth will be “filled with His glory” (vs.19)?
