In this beautiful Psalm, the last of Psalms Book II, we get to not only ponder the characteristics of an ideal leader, we get to consider all the qualities of THE KING whose reign is everlasting.
The ONE who:
- is righteous
- is justice
- brings prosperity
- defends the afflicted
- saves the children of the needy
- crushes the oppressor
- endures FOREVER, through ALL GENERATIONS
- waters the earth (for HE is the living water/the river of life)
ALL nations bow down to HIM
ALL nations serve HIM
…for HE alone delivers the needy, saves the helpless, sees the unseen, hears every whisper/every shout/every sound.
His reign is FOREVER. It was prepared for HIM by the Creator before creation. How beautiful to sink into his perfect provision and sustenance even in the midst of life’s challenges and abundance.
“For from him and through him and for him are all things. To him be the glory forever! Amen.” Romans 11:36
