Psalm 45:1
My heart is inditing a good matter: I speak of the things which I have made touching the king: my tongue is the pen of a ready writer.

Psalm 45 is a wedding song written to a king on his wedding day. This Psalm is also a Messianic prophecy written about the Lord taking His bride. The heart of the Psalmist is overflowing like a pot of water boiling on the fire. His heart is like a geyser bursting forth from the underground into visibility. The Psalmist is so overwhelmed with gratitude and love for the Lord that it is flowing out with force. As the Bible says in Matthew 12:34, …out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh. Whatever our heart is full of, is going to come out of our mouth.

The Psalmist’s heart was completely full and overflowing. How did his heart get that way? His heart was that way because of the things which he had made touching the king. How do we touch the king? Once we touch the king, our hearts are filled with overflowing love and gratitude that spills over on all we do and say. As was said of Jesus in Luke 4:22 when He was preaching in the temple, “And all bare him witness, and wondered at the gracious words which proceeded out of his mouth.”

The way we touch the king is with our gratitude for His presence and salvation in our life.

There once was ten lepers, in Luke the seventeenth chapter, who meet Jesus and cried out, “Jesus, Master, have mercy on us.” Jesus healed their bodies that day and sent them to show themselves to the priest, so that he could pronounce them clean. Only one of the ten realized that Jesus was the real eternal priest who had healed them and turned back to give thanks to the one who had healed him.

Because he turned back to give thanks for the healing he had received, not only was he healed but he was also made whole. He was healed in his body and made whole is his soul and spirit. This was an experience the other nine did not have.

When we reach the place where we can be grateful for what the Lord is doing in our life, although we may not understand what He is doing or why He is doing it, our hearts will be overflowing and bubbling up with such gratitude that Jesus will not only heal us, but we will be made whole in our soul and spirit. Then we will have a relationship with Jesus, of such love and trust, that our tongue will be the pen of a ready writer and Jesus will truly be the King of our heart.
