Feb. 10. PSALMS OF JOY, PRAISE AND THANKSGIVING, CONT’D.
This psalm began with a description of the awesome power of God—His power to destroy the wicked and to protect the righteous. It proceeded with a brief retelling of His care of the Israelites during the wilderness wanderings. God supplied them with their needs during that time and brought them into the promised land of Canaan where they continued to be blessed by Him. The Lord had subdued nations leaving the spoil for His people. With Israel being established, other nations will respect and honor them as their kings shower them with gifts. David ended the psalm with a call to worship God in a song of praise to the God of Israel who “gives strength and power to His people.”
