Breaking News Part 4: You Are Anointed with Joy

Psalm 45 has been called a ‘King’s Wedding Song’. It brims with royal pageantry and wedding imagery. The bridegroom here is a King of God’s people, preparing to marry the one he loves. This Psalm was probably used at many royal weddings in ancient Israel.

Later in Israel’s history, this Psalm came to be seen as a picture of the promised Messiah-King, who would come to deliver and unite with God’s people. In the New Testament, God’s people recognize Jesus as the Messiah-Saviour and see the church (God’s people) as his bride, based on teachings about a wedding feast in the kingdom of Heaven (Matthew 22:2; 25:1; Revelation 19:7; 21:2).

The psalmist talks about being anointed with “the oil of joy”. The joy we have in Christ as our Saviour can be with us always. Yet we are often distracted by worries and troubles in this world, forgetting the amazing blessings and potential we have as Christ’s anointed ones.

Today, weddings are seen as joyous events. So, even as we deal realistically with the struggles of this world just as Jesus does, we can look forward to our wedding and full life with Him in the kingdom of God. We can share that good news with others, so they too can have this anointed joy – now and forever. With whom can you share this breaking news of a joyful of life today?

You love righteousness and hate wickedness; therefore God, your God, has set you above your companions by anointing you with the oil of joy. (Psalm 45:7).

Let’s Pray

Yahweh, I long for a joy-filled life forever with you. Father, thank you for anointing me with your joy. God guide me to share it with others, for your sake. In Christ’s name, Amen.
