God hath blessed Thee forever
Psalms 45:1-2 says, My heart is inditing a good matter: I speak of the things which I have made touching the king: my tongue is the pen of a ready writer. Thou art fairer than the children of men: grace is poured into thy lips: therefore God hath blessed Thee for ever. Psalms 45 is a Messianic Psalms about Christ Jesus. Christ Jesus is the King of Kings, the Creator, the Prince of the kings of the earth, the Ancient of Days, Jehovah, Jealous, the I am that I am. Christ is almighty, all powerful. Christ saves men from their sins and gives both mercy and judgment. One day Christ will return and rule the entire earth with a rod of iron. There is no king so great as Christ the king of kings.
Psalms 45:1 says, My heart is inditing a good matter: I speak of the things which I have made touching the king. My tongue is the pen of a ready writer. To Speak of Christ Jesus and to read and acknowledge the truth of Jesus Christ the only begotten son of God is a good matter. When we hear the word indite we most likely think of an indictment or a legal action involving a crime. In this verse the word indite is not used to refer to a criminal action but to explain how the truth of the Word of God should be searched out, acknowledged and declared to the world.
Proverbs 20:5 says, Counsel in the heart of man is like deep water; but a man of understanding will draw it out. My heart is indicting a good matter: I speak of the things which I have made touching the king.
Psalms chapter 45 is a Psalms about Christ the king of kings and the bringing of the virgin unto Christ. This Psalms illustrates both the salvation of a soul and the twinkling of an eye at the end of the age of grace. It should be no surprise that Psalms 45 comes after Psalms 44 because Psalms 44 talks about slavery, suffering, and the destruction of being bowed down to the dust and having the belly cleaving unto the earth.
The world is in slavery. The world is falling more and more into slavery both spiritually and physically. But Christ has risen from the grave. There is redemption in Christ because of His mercies. Psalms 45:1 says, My heart is inditing a good matter: I speak of the things which I have made touching the king. My tongue is the pen of a ready writer. My tongue is the pen of a ready writer. Some have said that the pen is mightier than the sword. Even the tongue is a pen because Jesus said in Matthew 12:36, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment. Words spoken in the mind, in the heart, even by the tongue go forth into the world. How powerful words are. It is a good matter for the heart of man to think about and meditate on Christ and who He is and what His name means and then to declare the truth to others. How few there are in this world that will fear God more than man and speak the truth that Christ is the king of kings. This is indeed a good matter for the heart to indite.
2 Corinthians 3:3 says, Forasmuch as ye are manifestly declared to be the epistle of Christ ministered by us, written not with ink, but with the Spirit of the living God; not in tables of stone, but in fleshy tables of the heart. When we consider the power of words it should be no surprise that the Words of God endure forever. The words of man, even when the words of man are things that are foolish to say, still have a powerful effect on this world. Sometimes men wonder what their place is in this world and their purpose is in this life. In a way men are like angels only a little lower. The angels of God are messengers. The word angel means messenger. A Christian and all the Christians of this world are the epistle of Christ. Every time you study the Word of God and read and acknowledge the truth; the Spirit of God is writing in your heart more of the epistle of Christ. You are being conformed more to the image of Christ.
Psalms 45:1 says, My heart is inditing a good matter: I speak of the things which I have made touching the king. My tongue is the pen of a ready writer. Jesus said in Luke 6:45, For of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaketh. Even actions themselves are a type of words spoken not with the tongue but with the deed. In word and deed Christians are the epistle of Christ made manifest unto this world.
I speak of the things I have made touching the king. Jesus Christ is the king; the king of kings. What works have you done in word or deed that touch the heart of the Almighty, Holy God? This life is temporary. Man at his best state is vanity. God is a God of grace. There is always time and opportunity to live for Christ; to touch the heart of the king by living by faith in the promises of God.
How easy it is to do a great work for Christ. Simply praise His name and speak the truth aloud. Even if no one else hears you Christ hears you because Christ fills heaven and earth. Psalms 45:2 says, Thou art fairer than the children of men: grace is poured into thy lips: therefore God hath blessed thee for ever. The whole creation groans from the chains of the consequences of sin. Man desires to live for ever. Yet man knows that every day he grows older and eventually perishes. There is one who is blessed forever: Jesus Christ. Those who become a joint heir with Christ will be blessed forever too with the inheritance of eternal life.
The world may hate you, men may persecute you but O how God will shed His favour on you because there are so few that praise the name of Jesus Christ. If you never have turned from your sins to Jesus then let Jesus touch your heart. I speak of the things which I have made touching the king.
