Through the Eyes of the Groom: Psalm 45

Listen, O daughter, consider and give ear:  Forget your people and your Father’s house. The King is enthralled by your beauty; honor Him for He is your Lord. (Psalm 45:10-11)

1.  When He looks at you, He sees something wonderfully made

I will praise you for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.  For you created my inmost being, you knit me together in my mother’s womb.  While I was still being woven together, your eyes saw my unformed body.  All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.  (Ps 139:14-18)

  • Wonderfully Made: In love, you were pre-planned by God
  • Wonderfully Made: In love, you were handmade by God
  • Wonderfully Made: You are valued as fully as anyone who ever lived
  • Wonderfully Made: You are more valuable than any other thing in creation
  • Wonderfully Made: You are more valuable than the net worth of all creation


2.  When He looks at  you, He sees His wealth

“I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened, that you might know the riches of His glorious inheritance in the saints”  (Eph. 1:19)

W.I.I.F.G.? – –We are His inheritance


3.  When He looks at you, He sees something He wants

The King greatly desires you.  (Ps 45:11)

  • You are wanted for friendship with God
  • You are wanted for partnership with God


4.  When He looks at you, He sees something worth dying for

Husbands love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave Himself up for her, to make her holy . . . To present her to Himself as a radiant church without spot or wrinkle or any other blemish. (Eph 5:25-27)

And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have the power together with all the saints, to grasp how wide, and how long, and how high, and how deep is the love of Christ, and to know this live which surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.  (Eph 3:16-19)
