Psalm 62:11-12 says, “One thing God has spoken, two things have I heard: that you, O God are strong, and that you, O Lord, are loving. Surely you will reward each person according to what he has done.”
In these two verses I notice the intimacy David shared with God and the depth to which David was being taught by the Holy Spirit. David and God were so close that through this prayer the Holy Spirit revealed the promise of the Christ’s coming, two of the attributes of God Christ would make visible and the meritorious work Christ would accomplish on the cross for our salvation.
Listen closely and hear the Holy Spirit whisper the wonders of Christ to you as He did David. To us, God has spoken is His Word, Jesus Christ. What the Spirit inspired David to pray, God the Spirit brought into view in the world. “The Word became flesh and made His dwelling among us” (John 1:14).
God in Christ is strong. He was strong enough to endure the cross, demonstrate His love for us by dying on that cross for our sins, offer forgiveness to all who believe in Him and then conquer death through the power of the Holy Spirit. All who have faith in Jesus are not judged according to what we deserve because of our sin, but rewarded according to the righteousness of Christ and all He has done for us.
The Holy Spirit will continue to teach us in Scripture the mysteries of God in Christ through the words He spoke to David.
