Psalms 19:14 – The Holy Trinity

Today’s Psalms finishes out Chapter 19 which gives us an understanding of what our prayers ought to look like and also a glimpse of The Triune God.  

Psa 19:14  Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart Be acceptable in Your sight, O LORD, my rock and my Redeemer.

David is asking, “Lord – Let both my spoken and silent prayers be acceptable to you,” when we hear the word acceptable to God in the Old Testament, it is usually an offering or some form of sacrifice, if the sacrifice that the sinner is putting forth is acceptable, that God consumes it in the literal sense, like when the Glory Of The Lord would consume ancient Israel’s burnt offerings or in the New Testament where there is Christ’s sacrifice.  He rose up on the 3rd day, if Christ was not an acceptable sacrifice, the tomb wouldn’t have been found empty, but Christ was the perfect substitutionary sacrifice, He was without sin, became sin on our behalf, and because He was an acceptable sacrifice, The Lord rose Him up and vacated the tomb.  

David finishes at the Psalms identifying the 3 different person’s of God; He says O Lord, My Rock, and my Redeemer.  Lord being God The Father, Rock being what gives us strength, or the Holy Spirit and then Redeemer, who is Christ who literally redeems us from the ransom that our sin builds up.  

Again, incredible seeing this Psalms that was written way before Christ enters time, identifying Christ as our Redeemer along with the other 2 person’s of the Triune God, The Father, The Son and The Holy Spirit, all which is given to us in today’s Psalm that was written hundreds of years before the New Testament!
