Psalm 63:9-11: Future Reality
Psalm 63:9-11: But those who seek to destroy my life
shall go down into the depths of the earth;
10 they shall be given over to the power of the sword;
they shall be a portion for jackals.
11 But the king shall rejoice in God;
all who swear by him shall exult,
for the mouths of liars will be stopped. 
When we started studying Psalm 63, we observed how this Psalm highlights God’s past, present, and future help.  As we finish Psalm 63, David’s future hope shines through.  Verses 9-10 show that David’s “unquenched” faith rests on God Who will bring justice, which the Lord providentially did in 2 Samuel 18.  Verse 11 teaches that those who “swear” (pledge their “loyalty to”) God will be vindicated because the Trinity will bring justice. 
God’s coming justice should give us reverential pause. Because of our sins, Scripture describes all humanity like those who opposed David—as insurrectionists.  The only way we can receive God’s graciousness rather than His rightful wrath is to believe that Jesus alone bore the wrath we deserve.  If you do believe, when Christ returns He will justify you before God and your enemies, and welcome you to paradise.  May God use this future hope to call those who lack it to Himself and to sustain those who believe.
