Psalms — Psalm 45 – She is Worthy!

Day 2592: Be thankful!!! Not only for what you have been blessed with, but also TO the One who has done the blessing!

Scripture: My heart overflows with a good theme; Your throne, O God, is forever and ever; a scepter of uprightness is the scepter of Your kingdom. 

Kings’ daughters are among Your noble ladies; at Your right hand stands the queen in gold from Ophir. Listen, O daughter, give attention and incline your ear: because He is your Lord, bow down to Him. The daughter of Tyre will come with a gift; the rich among the people will seek your favor. The King’s daughter is all glorious within; her clothing is interwoven with gold. She will be led to the King in embroidered work. 

I will cause Your name to be remembered in all generations; therefore the peoples will give You thanks forever and ever.  Excerpts from Psalm 45

Thoughts/questions: This Psalm is said to be about Jesus and His bride, the Church. The ‘you‘ in these verses definitely refers to Him, but I am taking a different look at kings daughters.

Although there may be differing roles for genders, the value of women is on display in this Psalm! Would have God created either human gender to be lacking in their relationship to Him? Would have He given one relational superiority to Him over the other?

No, women are worthy of ALL God offers to humanity, and those who follow Jesus have been created with emotions and a spirit which can relate to God on a special level that men have a difficult time experiencing!

Yes, to God women ARE worthy! But as Christ following women, His injunction to you is the similar to all – because He is your Lord, bow down to HIM!  And bow down to Him alone!

Suggested prayer: Father God, may we all do one thing – because You are our Lord, bow down to You . . .
