Seeing Your Poetic Present and Your Literal Future | Psalm 30

As a psalmist uniquely inspired by the Holy Spirit (Matt 22:43), King David’s prayers were often prophetic; describing poetically/figuratively what will ultimately be literal in the future through the Son of David, the Messiah (the Christ). For example, we see this regarding Jesus’s crucifixion and resurrection in Psalm 22. And I think we see this in Psalm 30 regarding the resurrected future of Christ’s redeemed. Which of course included David. David is praying figuratively and poetically God’s redemptive realities in his life. And what he presently prays poetically will also be true literally for all those redeemed in Christ. When we see that future, it empowers us in the now. Let’s use our poetic imagination to see that life-giving story and that future together in this episode. Psalm 30 ESV A Psalm of David. A song at the dedication of the temple. 1 I will extol you, O LORD, for you have drawn me up and have not let my foes rejoice over me. 2 O LORD my God, I cried to you for help, and you have healed me. 3 O LORD, you have brought up my soul from Sheol; you restored me to life from among those who go down to the pit. 4 Sing praises to the LORD, O you his saints, and give thanks to his holy name. 5 For his anger is but for a moment, and his favor is for a lifetime. Weeping may tarry for the night, but joy comes with the morning. 10 Hear, O LORD, and be merciful to me! O LORD, be my helper!” 11 You have turned for me my mourning into dancing; you have loosed my sackcloth and clothed me with gladness, 12 that my glory may sing your praise and not be silent. O LORD my God, I will give thanks to you forever!
