God is good, and his goodness is seen in his care for the hopeless wanderer, the afflicted and enslaved, the foolish, and those in trouble.
In this Psalm we see a demonstration of the distinction between notional, and experiential knowledge. While intellectual knowledge is necessary, it is not sufficient. We are called to live out the truth in relationship to God, in Christ. To this end, the David shares his personal experience of the goodness of God, and then encourages his readers to partake of God in order to experience his goodness for themselves.
Psalm 110 sets forth God’s decree that Jesus Christ will govern the world politically and spiritually as the Divine King and Priest. The Psalm reveals the LORD’s Oracle of Christ’s Reign, the LORD’s Oath of Christ’s Priesthood, and the LORD’s Overthrow of Christ’s Enemies.
