Psalm 72



A Bible Devotion from Psalm 72

David's Doxology


Google


17 His name shall endure forever; His name shall continue as long as the sun. And men shall be blessed in Him; all nations shall call Him blessed. 18 Blessed be the LORD God, the God of Israel, Who only does wondrous things! 19 And blessed be His glorious name forever! And let the whole earth be filled with His glory. Amen and Amen. 20 The prayers of David the son of Jesse are ended. 
Psalm 72:17-20, KJV



In Psalm 71 we read David's recollections of God's faithfulness from his youth to old age. In this Psalm we have David's doxology; his final prayer to God. And what a doxology it is! 

David looks into the future proclaiming, His name shall endure forever; His name shall continue as long as the sun. He then goes beyond time when he states, And men shall be blessed in Him; all nations shall call Him blessed. We live in a time when this is certainly not the case. Well, actually God does call men to himself from every nation, but at the end of the ages the time will come when all nations will call Him blessed and all men, Christians and non Christians alike, will bow the knee to the Lord God of Hosts. 

After a final blessing, Blessed be the LORD God, the God of Israel, Who only does wondrous things! And blessed be His glorious name forever! And let the whole earth be filled with His glory, he states, Amen and Amen. The prayers of David the son of Jesse are ended. 

Is it no wonder why God called David a man after his own heart? 

Pray today that you will live this day in the knowledge that the Lord God of Hosts is the triumphant King over all the nations, and that when time has ended, all people will bow the knee to Him.
