“My heart overflows (literal: bubbles up) with a good matter: I speak of the things touching the king: my tongue is the pen of a ready writer” (Psalms 45:1).
Jesus said, “From the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks” (Luke 6:45). The Psalmist says his heart is “bubbling up” with good things. His heart was full of praise for his king. He is ecstatic in his praise saying, “You are fairer than the children of men: grace is poured into your lips: therefore God has blessed you forever” (Ps. 45:2).
“We speak what we know” (John 3:11), and what we know comes from the Father of Lights as we behold Him in His Majesty. We speak out of our relationship with the Father; and out of our experience with the Divine Life of the Son, the Lamb.
There are qualities of virtue and grace that are birthed in us in these times together in the Presence. We come to love righteousness and hate iniquity, as is the nature of the Divine (see 45:7). We understand that righteousness, truth and justice with meekness come from the Throne, and the reign of the Lamb is with a Scepter of Righteousness (see 45:6).
There are many who oppose the Lamb. We encounter the enemy within his domain in an age of corruption, evil and shame. Therefore, the Lord of glory is girded with His sword on His thigh, and reigns with mighty power in His glory and Majesty (45:3: Ephesians 6:11). The sword of the Lord is the Word of God (Ephesians 6:17) by which our enemies are smitten and defeated before us.
We are the Royal Bride of the Lamb and reign with Him in the Highest Heaven. We rejoice and are glad as we commune with our King (45:15). Out from our communion and fellowship comes the overflow, the bubbling up, the effervescence, of words, and expressions as from the pen of a ready writer.
Speak that which you know; speak that which you have been given; speak as an “oracle of God” (1 Peter 4:11) from the manifold grace received (4:10). You have been sent to turn the world upside down.
