Psalm 45 is a wedding song, and it tells the story of the king's wedding. Therefore, this royal celebration is the wedding of all weddings. Psalm 45 is a prophecy about the coming of our groom, King Jesus. It paints a picture of King Jesus preparing a place for His bride, the church, and then coming back to take her to His Father's house.
In His first coming, Jesus betrothed every believer to Him on the cross of Calvary. He told everyone who belongs to Him: "I love you. I died for you. I have chosen you and have paid the heaviest dowry that could be paid with My own precious blood. I am betrothing you to Myself and am committed to you. I will take you to My Father's house."
For those who are part of the bride of Christ, soon—whether we go to Him first or He comes back to us first—we will hear those words: "Welcome home. I have been preparing My Father's house for you. I loved you with everlasting love. I have shown you My love on the cross; now you can see it fully. Come inherit your Father's kingdom. I know you have waited longingly for Me, but the wait is over. Now enter into My Father's glory."
Prayer: Father, thank You that when I accepted You, I became a part of the bride of Christ. Thank You for the inheritance that awaits me. I pray in the name of Jesus. Amen.
"For as a young man marries a virgin, so your sons shall marry you; and as the bridegroom rejoices over the bride, so your God shall rejoice over you" (Isa. 62:5).
