Psalm 21

Sorry for the late posting. Tonight we’re going to look at Psalm 21. A few slightly odd perspectives to muse over:

  • This is King David saying how many blessings and victories God has given him on behalf of Israel.   How do we – living in Western Europe where the church is declining – react and respond to this?
  • Talk about the King invariably leads to the Jesus analogy. But “I know the answer must be Jesus but it sounds like a squirrel to me”. Might this apply as we read this Psalm?
  • A bit of smiting going on here. Who are “the enemies” anyway?
  • Do we feel like rejoicing in such a wholehearted way? What can we learn from David’s thought-process here?
