Bearers of God’s Name and Singers of His Praise II

My praise shall be of You in the great assembly; I will pay My vows before those who fear Him. Psalm 22: 25 (NKJV)

When you read through the Psalms, you will occasionally encounter strong human sentiments as well as divine expressions, but this is because of the dispensation in which the psalmists lived- the Law. Now that we enjoy fellowship with God in the dispensation of Grace, there are certain things in the Psalms that have different meanings for us. For instance, in Psalm 55: 1, the Psalmist was in anguish and asked God not to hide from his supplication; but in our current reality, we have the assurance in Jesus that God does not hide His face from us. In fact, He assures us of answered prayers when we pray in Jesus’ name!  (John 14: 14)

In our new reality, Jesus assures us of God’s blessings. We are in union with Christ, so we do not need to pray for fiery vengeance against our human enemies; instead, we pray for God’s mercy to envelope them. We now have the mind of Christ and when we approach life from this perspective, God’s joy fills our hearts and inspires us to praise and worship Him.
