Psalm 72 is attributed to Solomon at the beginning of his reign as King. Although this Psalm is dealing with hope for Solomon’s reign, it is ultimately pointing to and fulfilled in the reign of Messiah. Solomon never fulfilled all that is recorded in this Psalm. Yes, there were times when he ruled in righteousness, made good judgments, brought peace and the land flourished under his reign. However, not in the perfection and magnitude this Psalm presents. Only Jesus can perfectly fulfill this Psalm. HE will bring fulfillment to this Psalm when He comes again. His first coming anticipates His second coming. Lord, help me live every day for that day, so that You will be glorified.
