A Short Study of Psalm 45:17
“I will make thy name to be remembered in all generations: therefore shall the people praise thee forever and ever.”
This psalm is a Messianic one, referring to Jesus Christ. This particular verse, the last in the psalm, is a promise from God the Father to God the Son. The promise guarantees that Christ will be remembered and praised in every generation, that praise and glory will always be given Him.
What an encouraging thought for a dark spiritual hour!
In a day where the name of Christ is largely mocked and despised, when darkness seems to gain more and more momentum, we can be assured that there will always be a contingent of people holding up high the name of Jesus Christ.
God has promised it!
He has committed Himself to assure it will happen. God’s kingdom will triumph; it will endure; it will (already has) have the final victory.
Every time one is brought to Christ in faith, this is just another part of the fulfillment of this promise. Every time a church of Jesus Christ meets together in true worship, it is another part of the fulfillment of this promise. Every day that you and I seek to faithfully serve Him, it is yet another part of the fulfillment of this promise.
Rejoice in this Divine promise today!
