Scripture: Psalm 72:1-4
Verses 1 and 2 are Solomon’s declaration about what he learned about the Kingly anointing. It says, “Give the king Your judgments, O God And Your righteousness to the kings’ Son. He will judge Your people with righteousness, And Your poor with justice.” Solomon understood that in order to bring the sword you had to walk in righteousness. He also understood that the primary assignment of the king was to bring God’s justice through the application of judgment. Without the application of judgment (mish-pawt) there was no justice. Solomon understood it, he walked in it and he tells us what he learned in this Psalm. It is time that we shoulder the assignment of being a King and through prayer begin declaring divine justice.
