PSALM 21

  1. The king (David) shall joy in Your strength, O Lord; and in Your strength, O Lord; and in Your salvation how greatly shall he rejoice!
  2. You have given him his heart’s desire and have not withheld the request of his lips. Selah!
  3. For You send blessings of good things to meet him; You set a crown of pure gold on his head.

This is not known for an end time’s theme. It is one of my favorites because it is such a happy Psalm. I guess I ignored the last verses which do have an end time’s theme.

8. Your hand shall find all your enemies; Your right hand shall find all those who hate You.

9. You will make them as if in a blazing oven in the time of Your anger: the Lord will swallow them up in His wrath, and the fire will utterly consume them. Amp.

His wrath is filled with much fire.

DEFINITIONS

Enemy -d) a person who hates another and wishes to injure him; also, one hostile to an idea, cause, etc.

Hostile -d) of or characteristic of an enemy.

Psalm 21 has 7 verses of blessings and 6 verses of curses. 7 is a good number and 6 is a bad number. God is consistent all throughout the Word with numbers. You can learn a lot by studying them. He uses them in my life and is always consistent.

The definition of enemy is also one who is hostile to an idea or cause. Romans 8:7 That is because the mind of the flesh — with its carnal thoughts and purposes — is hostile to God; for it does not submit itself to God’s Law, indeed it cannot. Amp.

It goes on to say if you are catering to the fleshly impulses and appetites, you cannot please, satisfy or be acceptable to God. We must be in battle against the fleshly nature that always will be present but weakens as we crucify it until the end.

The more we resist the ways of our flesh the weaker it becomes. I believe the Lord starts us out by fasting which always weakens the flesh and causes the Holy Spirit to grow stronger. If we ignore this, we may end up the Lord’s enemy with the flesh ruling instead of His Spirit ruling. None of us want to be hostile to God.

James 4:7 So be subject to God. Stand firm against the devil; resist him and he will flee from you. Amp.

We always must give the Lord our will and follow His ways. Who do we serve or whose will do you do? We can be bound up by a controlling person, the devil or ourselves instead of the Lord. If we are subject to Him, we will serve Him by doing His will and what is pleasing to Him and not the flesh or others or the devil.

Then we must resist when temptation comes with the power of the Holy Spirit and eventually the devil will flee. But we have many areas that need resisting. It takes time. So, if we want to be blessed like King David in verses 1-7, we must get busy.

  1. David’s Psalms are such inspiration and so rich with worship, praise, encouragement and also some prophetic utterances. The word of God is life and we live in a constant state of repentance so that we can access the throne of grace. πŸ™πŸΎβ€οΈ

      1. I passed by its a powerful post .
        It’s also something I am working on .
        I used to fast a lot now I am not at that level.
        So I need to be careful especially when God is blessing us a family with abundance, we tend to neglect what we used to do in times of trouble.
