-Theme: A victory celebration for God’s people for His salvation and the enemies’ defeat. God truly enjoys His people.
-Historical Insight: This is an anonymous Psalm summoning up the promises of God for His people for complete and utter victory as He judges those who have dealt ruthlessly with Israel.
-*Application* This marred and wounded world under the dominion of Satan can beat up the believer with all manner of persecution and trouble. We need to remind ourselves often that the words in this Psalm hold true, not just for the nation of Israel, but for all people of faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. “The LORD takes pleasure in His people; He will beautify the afflicted ones with salvation (Psalm 149:4).” We will sing a “new song” of praise and adoration unto the One who overcomes and judges our enemies. Our Maker will prevail, and we will rejoice in the fact that good has won with dancing and absolute celebration. This victory will be better than winning the Super Bowl, or any other championship you can imagine. This is our assured destiny as children of God, and we can look forward in confident hope that our King reigns. So exult Him in glory wherever you are in life. Better days are on the way brothers and sisters who are IN Christ Jesus. There will be honor for all His godly ones (Psalm 149:9).
