Thinking & Understanding
Just as God is interested in the weak and the poor, a king who follows God’s wisdom and justice will become the protector of those who are helpless, rather than a representative of the privileged. However, while blessing the righteous king, the people will direct all their songs of praise to God. This is because God is the one who will appoint the king and establish righteous rule (vv. 12-20).

Who is God?
Vv. 18-19 God single-handedly performs wondrous deeds and his glory fills all the earth. Therefore, his glorious name is the title for the eternal song of praise. Praise is an act of recognising and revealing that all of God’s work has been done by God and giving him the glory he deserves. For those who try to show off the things they’ve done, or try to make their name known, praise is merely empty reverberation. Give glory to God with pure praise that shows off only God.

What lesson is God teaching me?
Vv. 18-19 In our families, workplaces and communities of faith, the position and authority we have taken must become serving tools that reveal God’s righteous rule. Let’s also reflect on whether our sincere service is for our own glory, or if it is for the glory of God, who has given us wisdom and the opportunity to serve in this way.

Prayer
Let your blessings be spread far and wide, Lord, starting from our close surroundings, through our obedience to your righteous rule.
