The utter dependence of this king upon God is encouraging and convicting. It allows us to see what a life abiding in Christ is like. “For the king trusts in the LORD, and through the mercy of the Most High he shall not be moved.” All of the king’s wants and needs are fulfilled in God. The king’s length of days, blessings, crown, heart’s desires, glory, honor, majesty, gladdness and steadfast footing all come from God. This king asked these things from God. He sees that God does not have to answer these requests and the king is completely thankful for God’s lovingkindness to still bestow upon him all of these excellent gifts. The LORD, in His most excellent mercy, sustains this king and the king is completely reverent of God and in awe of his great mercy toward him.
