“The LORD says to my Lord: "Sit at my right hand, until I make your enemies your footstool” (v1). This psalm celebrates the coming of the righteous King-Priest, the Messiah. The author of Hebrews (1:3, 5:6) quotes from this psalm, declaring that Jesus rules at the Father’s right hand and serves as our high priest “after the order of Melchizidek” (v4). Melchizidek was the mysterious priest to whom Abraham gave tithes long before the Jewish priestly line was created. While human leaders disappoint us, Jesus is the King-Priest we can worship forever.
“Your people will offer themselves freely on the day of your power” (v3). We can give ourselves freely to the One who used His power to rescue us.
