Ps 45:6-7 Your throne, O God, endures forever and ever. You rule with a scepter of justice. You love justice and hate evil. Therefore, God, your God, has anointed you, pouring out the oil of joy on you more than on anyone else.

            This Psalm is considered messianic and describes the Messiah’s future relationship to the church. It is interpreted, by some, as a love song of King Solomon to his bride, of Israel to their God or the church as the bride of Christ. In the sixth verse, we see a theme of Christ as Lord. This refers to the fact that God will be forever, as in the future Jesus Christ, our ultimate fulfilment.

            Reading this Psalm reaffirms that God had a plan from the beginning, starting with himself and continues through hundreds of years to Jesus. That’s endurance. Think about what God tolerated and suffered, through millennia, for his people. Yet we have difficulty sustaining relationships with people in our lives.

            The next time there is a disagreement in the family or with a friend, think about what Jesus withstood. In the scheme of things, are we asked to endure more than we can handle? NO. The outcome, of everything, depends on how we deal with the situation. Do we worry and become anxious or increase our faith by praying and seeking God’s resolution. Faith can be an attitude of complete confidence in God. Because Gods plan has endured thousands of years, why not stick with the plan that works.
