SAA Notes

Think of a man who has just had his girlfriend say “Yes” to his proposal of marriage. You can’t shut him up about how wonderful this girl is. The writers of these psalms have found God wonderful. Look for one thing to meditate on.

SJA Notes

Psalm 112 has so much good stuff in it!

As we have been seeing, it is a psalm that has a direct pointing to Jesus.

He greatly delighted in His Father’s commandments! His righteousness endures forever! He is gracious, merciful and righteous. He is remembered forever, and His heart was and is firm, trusting in His Father.

And, importantly, He did and will on the final day look in triumph on His adversaries.

Too, we see from the gospels particularly, wicked men saw Him and who He was and were angry, they gnashed their teeth at Him (but are no more).

And in that wonderful manifold nature of God’s word, this psalm is also for His people.

Because IN JESUS we can delight in the Lord’s commandments! IN JESUS we can be full of grace, mercy and we have His righteousness in the place of our brokeness!

IN JESUS we can never be moved. He is our rock, our defender, our foundation stone and capstone.

IN JESUS we are remembered forever. Not in the way the world considers important, but in the eyes of God Almighty. More, we have been thought of with intent since BEFORE THE FOUNDATION OF THE WORLD!

IN JESUS we join with Him in victory over sin and death, and we will stand with Him on that final day (with Him, IN His righteousness) as His enemies are made a footstool with terrible finality.

“Blessed is the man who fears the LORD, who greatly delights in his commandments!”

Amen! Amen again!
