Psalm 132 is pretty cool. Not only does it address David's special love for the Lord, and remind us of his desire to build a temple for Him, but it also recalls that God promised David that one of his sons would always be on the throne.

Of course, we (as believers in the arrival of the Jewish messiah, Jesus), know that this is ultimately true because David's descendant, Jesus, is on the ultimate throne, the throne of God himself!

But just in case you didn't pick it up from earlier segments, the psalmist ends the song by clarifying that he's actually talking about the messiah. He says,

“There I will cause a horn to sprout up for David; I have prepared a lamp for my anointed one. His enemies I will clothe with disgrace, but on him, his crown will gleam.””

Oh David, thank you for your faithfulness and worship! Thanks for your honest heart! I love the thought of a mere human so pleasing to God, that such promises would be made!

I want to have the kind of heart that also seeks after God without any holding back.

God, like David, I want to build you a temple, a dwelling place for the mighty one of Jacob! I want my heart, and the hearts of my brothers and sisters to be your temple!

Please use us as you see fit to bring about your kingdom! May you come and reside among us for ever. Bless us; satisfy our poor with bread. Clothe our priests with salvation, and fill your faithful servants will shouts for joy!

Amen!
