In your majesty

And in Your majesty ride prosperously because of truth, humility, and righteousness; And Your right hand shall teach You awesome things. – Psalm 45.4

This caught my eye simple because of the beautiful wording. Something clicked in my head about the majesty of our Saviour as our great Victor riding in on His chariot.

Spurgeon of course has all the right words for what I wanted to say.

And in thy majesty ride prosperously. The hero monarch armed and apparelled is now entreated to ascend his triumphal car. Would to God that our Immanuel would come forth in the chariot of love to conquer our spiritual foes and seize by power the souls whom he has bought with blood. Because of truth and meekness and righteousness. These words may be rendered, ride forth upon truth and meekness and righteousness.—Three noble chargers to draw the war chariot of the gospel.

When I read this I was reminded of the great parade of triumph that Paul wrote about to the Corinthian believers.

The victory is already accomplished. God will ride forth in majesty and Jesus will lead the victory parade. As a part of these parades flowers would be strewn in the streets and the horses and troops marching over them would produce a ‘sweet smelling savour. Paul says that we Christians carry that sweet smelling savour into the world.

So let God ride forth in majesty and may we carry that sweet smelling aroma to everyone around in truth, and meekness, and righteousness.
