God invites people in need to come to Him (vv. 1-2). By coming to the Lord people will have life and the benefits of God’s everlasting covenant with David (2 Samuel 7:11-16). The Lord promised that David’s line would continue forever (v. 3). The nations are to be under the Lord’s leadership (vv. 4-5). Just as God promised to keep His good hand on David, so He assured those who come to Him that He will never remove His good hand of blessing from them.
The wicked (v. 7) are commanded to seek and call on the Lord and to do so while He may be found (v. 6). Jesus quoted from this passage when He threw the money changers out of the temple (Mark 11:17). Salvation is available to all. In every dispensation the Lord has required the same thing for salvation and that is to trust in Him. Israelites, through God’s covenant people were saved only by believing in the Lord.
I am foolish to try to fit God into my plans. Instead, I must try to fit into His plans.
