Psalm 21:3 “You welcomed him with rich blessings and placed a crown of pure gold on his head.”
[You crowned David, after his long wait of living as an outlaw; you crowned Jesus, after His 30 year wait, then His intense work and immense suffering; and you crown us now every day with love and compassion (Ps 104:4) as you continually pour out abundant, good and gracious blessings on us.]
Psalm 21:4 “He asked you for life, and you gave it to him—length of days, for ever and ever.”
[In his death, you granted Jesus resurrection; He rose to eternal life, and passes it on to all who believe in Him, David included. We, as your children, now have eternity before us—length of days forever and ever–and can rejoice now in the certainty of it.]
Psalm 21:5 “Through the victories you gave, his glory is great;”
[David was given many victories, beginning with Goliath and spanning his whole reign. Jesus, in His incarnation was strengthened by your power and had one long string of victories: no sin, no failure, no losses. The greatest possible defeat, death, led to the greatest possible victory, overcoming the power of death, the devil and destruction. What great glory Jesus earned in His many victories. And so He passes this possibility on to us, calling us to be more than conquerors with Him in His power; and He wants to share His glory with us, as we triumph through our faith in Him (1 Pet 1:7).]
“you have bestowed on him splendor and majesty.”
[David ruled in the golden age of Israel. Jesus now reigns from his throne on high as the mighty and majestic Ruler of creation and all beyond. You have raised Him up above all principalities and powers, above all might, above all names and seated Him, the eternal Victor, at your right hand to reign forever and ever.
Evil can now be eliminated. A new and sinless start can be had through our physical death, into the new heaven and earth where the splendor and majesty of Jesus will be on display forever, and we will be ever with Him in wonderful, wide and endless love.]
Praise be to you, Heavenly Father, for revealing these things by the pen of David, by the triumph of Christ and by bringing us into your great and beautiful Kingdom. Help us to live daily in this unseen reality, rejoicing in you, in your love for us and in the certainly of what you will bring.
