My understanding is that this psalm was written by David in celebration of the Ark of the Covenant (a visible symbol of the Lord's presence) once again returning to Israel after having been in the hands of the Philistines. Although having thus been written in connection with a specific occurrence in biblical times, the psalm might also be viewed in a broader sense as expressing thanksgiving to God by a Christian of any age for circumstances or events that plainly indicate the favorable working of God in that Christian's life, especially after a period in which the Christian might not have been so perceptive of indications of God's involvement.
God has prepared everything for those who have faith and believe His words. Jesus came and sacrificed His life. The sun was darkened on the day of redemption. Hell lost all its right to us and we are in heaven. The King of Glory, the Lord of Might has entered in. It is finished. The Gift of gifts has been offered. Will you accept Him?
