Psalm 21

The king rejoices in your strength, Lord.
How great is his joy in the victories you give!

Psalm 21:1

Like Psalm 20, this Psalm is what is known as a royal Psalm. Much of what we read here is about the king (David), his relationship to the one true God, and what God has done and will do for the king. The fact that most of this Psalm is about David does not make it irrelevant for us. Indeed, it is just as relevant and important as any of the other Psalms - or any other Scripture for that matter.

We need to rejoice in the strength of the Lord just as verse 1 says. Although we all probably know this, it is important to periodically be reminded that God is all powerful. He is, as the theologians say, omnipotent. He has all power, all might, all strength. There is nothing too hard for Him to accomplish and nothing too big for Him to overcome. The only thing that limits what God can do is His holy character. He will not act outside of His holiness. He will not do something that is unrighteous. That doesn’t limit His strength, it just limits the exercise of that strength.

This circumstance in which we have redefined “normal” due to a world pandemic offers no suggestion that we could or should attempt to redefine God’s love, purpose or pleasure!
