God Loves a Party | Psalm 45:10-15
Today’s Passage: Psalm 45:10-15
Key Verses: Psalm 45:13-15
All glorious is the princess within her chamber; her gown is interwoven with gold. In embroidered garments she is led to the king; her virgin companions follow her—those brought to be with her. Led in with joy and gladness, they enter the palace of the king.
It is the day of the royal wedding and the nation is buzzing with excitement. Today’s passage was a song written specifically for the occasion. In yesterday’s passage the song focused on the king. Today the focus is on his bride.
The bride stands in an extraordinary gown that is interwoven with gold. Her accessories are exquisite. Amidst great celebration the bridal party is led to the palace of the king. As she enters, he is captivated by her beauty.
Many see God as a killjoy. He is there to tell us that what seems fun is not acceptable. He is pictured as stoic and solemn . . . and even angry, but here is a reminder that God loves a party. He created all things for us to enjoy. When we follow his lead, life is a celebration. Then there is heaven!
Thank you, Father, for giving us all things to enjoy. Help us celebrate with you every day of our lives. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
