The Regulating Spirit in the Psalms

Forever, O Lord, Your word is settled in heaven. Your faithfulness endures to all generations; You established the earth, and it abides. Psalm 119: 89- 90 (NKJV)

The Bible says that God’s Word is settled forever. This means that when He calls you blessed, holy and favoured, you are indeed blessed, holy and favoured! When people tell you otherwise, you can easily discount their opinions. And you can believe God’s Word is true, because the next verse of this Scripture passage goes on to describe God as faithful. Our faithfulness may fail, but God’s faithfulness is everlasting. Therefore, because of God’s Word, you can be confident that you are SOMEBODY! Knowing this, and knowing that God has a plan for your life, means that you never have to compromise.

Since we began studying the Psalms, we have learnt that in our New Covenant reality, portions in the Psalms that refer to the Law can be read as a reference to Jesus. This is because Jesus became the end of the Law for righteousness sake for those who believe in Him (Romans 10: 4). Now, when we focus on Christ, He makes impossible situations possible. Because of Jesus, we have a royal identity and we never have to compromise, knowing that God has a plan for our lives, and that nothing is impossible with God. This truth is revealed by the Spirit of sonship that God has given and wants us to receive as our identity (Romans 8: 15). We will enjoy God’s victory when we are settled in this identity.
