God Will Always Be With You, Always

RG AUDIO 011912Psalm 45:10-17

Psalm 47 is a war psalm. It celebrates God’s triumphant reign before the battle: “He subdued nations under us, peoples under our feet” (v. 3). It celebrates God’s triumphant reign in the battle: “God has ascended amid shouts of joy” (v. 5a). It also celebrates God’s triumphant reign after the battle: “For God is the King of all the earth” (v. 7a). The psalm is set in a world in revolt against the Lord. Nevertheless our God goes into battle and subdues the nations. We have nothing to fear.

Scholars have suggested that this psalm was used during temple worship. A time of celebration! God’s children are to sometimes worship him with great enthusiasm and outward joy, to clap their hands to the Lord.

Has God been with you in the past? Is he with you now? Then doesn’t it make sense that whatever you are facing in the future—he is already there? No wonder we have reason to clap our hands in praise to Him!
