God's Faithfulness & YOUR Faith - Psalm 89
Topic: Psalms, Citizenship, Kingdom Of God Scripture: Psalm 89:1–89:52
“Faithfulness” is one of those words we love but have given little thought to it’ meaning. The Hebrew word is used repeatedly in this Psalm. It means “steadfast.” When someone is faithful they are steadfast in their word and their loyalty no matter what.
As to the occasion of Psalm 89, there are two opinions. Those who hold the first view believe that Psalm 89 was penned as a result of the kingdom’s division by the arrogant and inexperienced king Rehoboam who was the son of Solomon. Those who hold to the second view believe that this Psalm is referring to the end of the southern monarchy which came at the deportation of Jehoiachin (38 -45 BC.). The latter is more probable and seems to have more in common with the text of Psalm 89. The Psalmist is experiencing a crisis of faith because it seems that the Davidic kingdom has been lost forever.
