Psalm 36

1 Here are the words God has given me to say about the evil ways of anyone who sins. He doesn’t have any respect for God. 2 He praises himself so much that he can’t see his sin or hate it. 3 His mouth speaks words that are evil and false. He has stopped being wise. He has stopped doing good. 4 Even as he lies in bed he makes evil plans. He commits himself to a sinful way of life. He never says no to what is wrong. 5 Lord, your love is as high as the heavens. Your faithful love reaches up to the skies. 6 You are as holy as the mountains are high. You are as honest as the oceans are deep. Lord, you keep people and animals safe. 7 How priceless your faithful love is! Important and ordinary people alike find safety in the shadow of your wings. 8 They eat well because there is more than enough in your house. You let them drink from your river that flows with good things. 9 You have the fountain of life. We are filled with light because you give us light. 10 Keep on loving those who know you. Keep on doing right to those whose hearts are honest. 11 Don’t let the feet of those who are proud step on me. Don’t let the hands of those who are evil drive me away. 12 See how those who do evil have fallen! They are thrown down. They aren’t able to get up.

David seems to write this Psalm with groups of people in mind. He writes the word “Their” in relation to the evil and sin of others (v1-4). He writes the word “You” – relating to the goodness of God (v5-10). Lastly, he writes the word “me” – relating to David’s request for help (v11).

I sometimes read the Psalms in this way. The bad stuff is for others and the good stuff relates to me. In truth, all of it relates to me. If I’m honest I would have to admit that sometimes ‘sin whispers deep within my heart’ and ‘I cannot see how wicked I really am’. (v1-2)

But this reality makes the “unfailing love” of God so much more amazing. It’s in spite of my wickedness that He loves me. And then, in a stroke of genius, he breaks the power of sin in my life through Jesus’ death and resurrection from the grave. Rom 7:24-25

Now there is a bond between my Heavenly Father and I because of Jesus. It will never be broken. He will provide for me
“from the abundance of His own house” and for all my days and all eternity I will “drink from His river of delights”. This gospel is completely amazing!

Heavenly Father, your salvation of my life leaves me lost for words. Help me understand it, worship as I should because of it, and help others embrace it also.

Psalm 35

1 Lord, stand up against those who stand up against me. Fight against those who fight against me. 2 Pick up your large shields and your small shields. Rise up and help me. 3 Get your spear and javelin ready to fight against those who are chasing me. Say to me, “I will save you.” 4 Let those who are trying to kill me be brought down in dishonor. Let those who plan to destroy me be turned back in terror. 5 Let them be like straw blowing in the wind, while the angel of the Lord drives them away. 6 Let their path be dark and slippery, while the angel of the Lord chases them. 7 They set a trap for me without any reason. Without any reason they dug a pit to catch me. 8 So let them be destroyed without warning. Let the trap they set for me catch them. Let them fall into the pit and be destroyed. 9 Then I will be full of joy because of what the Lord has done. I will be glad because he has saved me. 10 My whole being will cry out, “Who is like you, Lord? You save poor people from those who are too strong for them. You save poor and needy people from those who rob them.” 11 Mean people come forward to give witness against me. They ask me things I don’t know anything about. 12 They pay me back with evil, even though I was good to them. They leave me without hope. 13 But when they were sick, I put on black clothes. I made myself low by going without food. My prayers for them weren’t always answered. 14 So I went around crying as if I were crying over my friend or relative. I bowed my head in sadness as if I were sobbing over my mother. 15 But when I tripped and fell, they were all very happy. Attackers gathered against me when I didn’t even know it. They kept on telling lies about me. 16 They were like ungodly people. They made fun of me. They ground their teeth at me in hate. 17 Lord, how much longer will you just look on? Save me from their deadly attacks. Save the only life I have. Save me from those lions. 18 I will give you thanks in the whole community. Among all of your people I will praise you. 19 Don’t let those who are my enemies without any reason laugh at me and make fun of me. Don’t let those who hate me without any reason wink at me with an evil purpose. 20 They don’t speak words of peace. They make up false charges against those who live quietly in the land. 21 They open their mouths wide at me. They make fun of me. They say, “With our own eyes we have seen what you did.” 22 Lord, you have seen this. Don’t be silent. Lord, don’t be far away from me. 23 Wake up! Rise up to help me! My God and Lord, stand up for me. 24 Lord my God, when you hand down your sentence, let it be in my favor. You always do what is right. Don’t let my enemies have the joy of seeing me fall. 25 Don’t let them think, “That’s exactly what we wanted!” Don’t let them say, “We have swallowed him up.” 26 Let all those who laugh at me because I’m in trouble be ashamed and bewildered. Let all who think they are better than I am put on shame and dishonor as if they were clothes. 27 Let those who are happy when my name is cleared shout with joy and gladness. Let them always say, “May the Lord be honored. He is pleased when everything goes well with the one who serves him.” 28 You always do what is right. My tongue will speak about it and praise you all day long.

In this psalm David is distressed and crying out to God to rescue him, but even as he cries out he paints a picture of God’s strength and capacity to save. He calls out to God to contend for him, to fight for him, to put on armour and come to his aid, to brandish spear and javelin… He is most definitely calling out to a strong and mighty God, a God of power, who can easily defeat David’s enemies.

When things rise against me am I reacting in this way, am I crying out to God with faith and expectation? Do I ask, ‘dear Lord please save me I’m drowning,’ and focus on how terrible the situation is? Or do I cry out and ask God to contend for me, fight for me, put on armour and come to my aid? Do I cry out to God and ask him not just to use his power, but actually brandish his spear and javelin… Do I call on Him to wield His incredible power, His more than enough power, His over the top power, and win the victory for me?

That’s how I want to cry out to God. I want to be stirring faith and declaring truth even as I call out to God for help. Amen.

Psalm 34

1 I will thank the Lord at all times. My lips will always praise him. 2 I will honor the Lord. Let those who are hurting hear and be joyful. 3 Join me in giving glory to the Lord. Let us honor him together. 4 I looked to the Lord, and he answered me. He saved me from everything I was afraid of. 5 Those who look to him beam with joy. They are never put to shame. 6 This poor man called out, and the Lord heard him. He saved him out of all of his troubles. 7 The angel of the Lord stands guard around those who have respect for him. And he saves them. 8 Taste and see that the Lord is good. Blessed is the man who goes to him for safety. 9 You people of God, have respect for the Lord. Those who respect him have everything they need. 10 The lions may grow weak and hungry. But those who look to the Lord have every good thing they need. 11 My children, come. Listen to me. I will teach you to have respect for the Lord. 12 Do you love life and want to see many good days? 13 Then keep your tongues from speaking evil. Keep your lips from telling lies. 14 Turn away from evil, and do good. Look for peace, and go after it. 15 The Lord looks with favor on those who are godly. His ears are open to their cry. 16 The Lord doesn’t look with favor on those who do evil. He removes all memory of them from the earth. 17 Godly people cry out, and the Lord hears them. He saves them from all of their troubles. 18 The Lord is close to those whose hearts have been broken. He saves those whose spirits have been crushed. 19 Anyone who does what is right may have many troubles. But the Lord saves him from all of them. 20 The Lord watches over all of his bones. Not one of them will be broken. 21 Sinners will be killed by their own evil. The enemies of godly people will be judged. 22 The Lord sets those who serve him free. No one who goes to him for safety will be judged.

Psalm 34 is a psalm of praise during difficult times. It’s easy to have the praises of God in our mouth when things are going well – not always so easy to have his praise “continually in our mouths” when times are tough.

There are many comforting verses in this Psalm about God rescuing us and saving us in our troubles as we reach out for Him.

If you are, like me, facing some challenging circumstances in your life, take time today to praise Him knowing that He has promised to deliver us out of every affliction. It’s so much easier to face something difficult when you know the story has a good ending!

Thank you God for your promise to rescue us from every affliction that we face. Help me to remember to keep praising You and trusting that in You, every story ends in victory!

Psalm 33

1 You who are godly, sing with joy to the Lord. It is right for honest people to praise him. 2 Praise the Lord with the harp. Make music to him on the lyre that has ten strings. 3 Sing a new song to him. Play with skill, and shout with joy. 4 What the Lord says is right and true. He is faithful in everything he does. 5 The Lord loves what is right and fair. The earth is full of his faithful love. 6 The heavens were made when the Lord commanded it to happen. All of the stars were created by the breath of his mouth. 7 He gathers the waters of the sea together. He puts the oceans in their places. 8 Let the whole earth have respect for the Lord. Let all of the people in the world honor him. 9 He spoke, and the world came into being. He commanded, and it stood firm. 10 The Lord blocks the sinful plans of the nations. He keeps them from doing what they want to do. 11 But the plans of the Lord stand firm forever. What he wants to do will last for all time. 12 Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord. Blessed are the people he chose to be his own. 13 From heaven the Lord looks down and sees everyone. 14 From his throne he watches all those who live on the earth. 15 He creates the hearts of all people. He is aware of everything they do. 16 A king isn’t saved just because his army is big. A soldier doesn’t escape just because he is very strong. 17 People can’t trust a horse to save them either. Though it is very strong, it can’t save them. 18 But the Lord looks with favor on those who respect him. He watches over those who put their hope in his faithful love. 19 He watches over them to save them from death. He wants to keep them alive when there is no food in the land. 20 We wait in hope for the Lord. He helps us. He is like a shield that keeps us safe. 21 Our hearts are full of joy because of him. We trust in him, because he is holy. 22 Lord, may your faithful love rest on us. We put our hope in you.

What terror can be unleashed by a man or woman with seemingly unrestrained power. When such a person fears no higher authority they can cause others to cower with fear. This is often called the abuse of power.

No one can stop God from doing what ever he wants. What unrestrained power God has! To a God that is completely unrestrained, what should be our response?

Praise, songs of joy and beautiful music. Why?

Because He’s unrestrained power is used for righteousness, justice and unfailing love. Unrestrained love, righteousness and justice, what could be more beautiful than these?

Lord I commit myself to you, for you are committed to the most beautiful of visions and you have the power to make it so.

Work through me to bring love, righteousness and justice. Show me quickly when I am fighting against your vision, forgive and equip me to fight the good fight.

Psalm 32

1 Blessed is the one whose lawless acts are forgiven. His sins have been taken away. 2 Blessed is the man whose sin the Lord never counts against him. He doesn’t want to cheat anyone. 3 When I kept silent about my sin, my body became weak because I groaned all day long. 4 Day and night your heavy hand punished me. I became weaker and weaker as I do in the heat of summer. Selah 5 Then I admitted my sin to you. I didn’t cover up the wrong I had done. I said, “I will admit my lawless acts to the Lord.” And you forgave the guilt of my sin. Selah 6 Let everyone who is godly pray to you while they can still look to you. When troubles come like a flood, they certainly won’t reach those who are godly. 7 You are my hiding place. You will keep me safe from trouble. You will surround me with songs sung by those who praise you because you save your people. Selah 8 I will guide you and teach you the way you should go. I will give you good advice and watch over you. 9 Don’t be like the horse or the mule. They can’t understand anything. They have to be controlled by bits and bridles. If they aren’t, they won’t come to you. 10 Sinful people have all kinds of trouble. But the Lord’s faithful love is all around those who trust in him. 11 Be glad because of what the Lord has done for you. Be joyful, you who do what is right! Sing, all of you whose hearts are honest!

This passage is initially personal (when I, then I, I will). It’s about David’s personal relationship with God – the blessing he found in confession, the strength sapping effect of his own silence, and the joy of exposing his heart to God.

Then David encourages others to do the same and tells of God’s goodness and shares God’s words.

We need to be initially personal with God too. We need to confess and expose our hearts in prayer. We need to willingly come to God, without being forced to, like the horse is with a bridle, to receive God’s instruction and his counsel.

God’s blessing toward you is also personal. At any time, you can enjoy the personal blessing of his forgiveness by confession.

Psalm 31

1 Lord, I have gone to you for safety. Don’t let me ever be put to shame. Save me, because you do what is right. 2 Pay attention to me. Come quickly to help me. Be the rock I go to for safety. Be the strong fort that saves me. 3 You are my rock and my fort. Lead me and guide me for the honor of your name. 4 Free me from the trap that is set for me. You are my place of safety. 5 Into your hands I commit my very life. Lord, set me free. You are my faithful God. 6 I hate those who worship worthless statues of gods. I trust in the Lord. 7 I will be glad and full of joy because you love me. You saw that I was hurting. You took note of my great pain. 8 You have not handed me over to the enemy. You have put me in a wide and safe place. 9 Lord, show me your favor. I’m in deep trouble. I’m so sad I can hardly see. My whole body grows weak with sadness. 10 Pain has taken over my life. My years are spent in groaning. I have no strength because I’m hurting so much. My body is getting weaker and weaker. 11 My neighbors make fun of me because I have so many enemies. My friends are afraid of me. Those who see me on the street run away from me. 12 They have forgotten me. I might as well be dead. I have become like broken pottery. 13 I hear the lies many people tell about me. There is terror all around me. Many have joined together against me. They plan to kill me. 14 But I trust in you, Lord. I say, “You are my God.” 15 My whole life is in your hands. Save me from my enemies. Save me from those who are chasing me. 16 Let your face smile on me with favor. Save me because your love is faithful. 17 Lord, I have cried out to you. Don’t let me be put to shame. But let sinners be put to shame. Let them lie silent in the grave. 18 Their lips tell lies. Let them be silenced. They speak with pride against those who do right. They make fun of them. 19 How great your goodness is! You have stored it up for those who have respect for you. While other people watch, you give it to those who run to you for safety. 20 They are safe because you are with them. You hide them from the evil plans of their enemies. In your house you keep them safe from those who bring charges against them. 21 Give praise to the Lord. He showed me his wonderful love when my enemies attacked the city I was in. 22 I was afraid and said, “I’ve been cut off from you!” But you heard my cry for your favor. You heard me when I called out to you for help. 23 Love the Lord, all of you who are faithful to him! The Lord watches over the faithful. But he completely pays back those who are proud. 24 Be strong, all of you who put your hope in the Lord. Never give up.

The image and understanding of God as a rock, fortress and refuge is a really comforting and powerful one for me. When David writes about the “shelter of God’s presence” in vs 20 along with the other language of fortress and refuge, it really helps me to understand the level of trust and intimacy that God wants to have with us. It also makes me think of Jesus’ call for us to “abide in him” – The notion of resting and abiding in Christ is challenging if we think of Christ as a man, but if we think of his as a fortress-refuge, this idea becomes a little easier to grasp and imagine.

While I love the encouraging language of trust and the themes of steadfast faith that run through this psalm, it is impossible to ignore the scary bit right in the middle: verse 9-13 seems to escalate in panic, and I can almost hear the music of the psalm rising to a crescendo as it reaches verse 13, before returning to the calm, trusting rhythm of 14 onwards.

I often wonder what the psalms would have sounded like in their original music and language… I’m sure David will play some for us in heaven.

Psalm 30

1 Lord, I will give you honor. You brought me out of deep trouble. You didn’t give my enemies the joy of seeing me die. 2 Lord my God, I called out to you for help. And you healed me. 3 Lord, you brought me up from the edge of the grave. You kept me from going down into the pit. 4 Sing to the Lord, you who are faithful to him. Praise him, because his name is holy. 5 His anger lasts for only a moment. But his favor lasts for a person’s whole life. Sobbing can remain through the night. But joy comes in the morning. 6 When I felt safe, I said, “I will always be secure.” 7 Lord, when you showed me your favor, you made my mountain stand firm. But when you turned your face away from me, I was terrified. 8 Lord, I called out to you. I cried to you for your favor. 9 I said, “What good will come if I die? What good will come if I go down into the grave? Can the dust of my dead body praise you? Can it tell how faithful you are? 10 Lord, hear me. Show me your favor. Lord, help me.” 11 You turned my loud crying into dancing. You removed my black clothes and dressed me with joy. 12 So my heart will sing to you. I can’t keep silent. Lord, my God, I will give you thanks forever.

1 I will exalt you, Lord, for you rescued me.

You refused to let my enemies triumph over me.

11 You have turned my mourning into joyful dancing.

You have taken away my clothes of mourning and clothed me with joy,

David is remembering what God has done for him – speaking it out – declaring who God is and how God has expressed His love and faithfulness to him. God has rescued him, God has refused to let his enemies triumph over him; God has turned his mourning into dancing  and God has taken away his mourning clothes and redressed David with joy. David has joined himself to the love and the power and the protection of God. In the midst of difficulties, David continues to declare God’s goodness.

How often do I let my external circumstances dress me? Dictate my actions? As I walk through some difficult circumstances right now – I am challenged by David to declare what my God can and will do if I will join myself to Him. Will I allow Him to rescue me, to refuse my enemies success – to turn my mourning into dancing – to dress me in joy? He is waiting – ready and willing to be all that He says He is – to do all that He says He can do – to make me all that He has planned for me to be.

Oh God – how incredibly patient you are with me. How difficult I can be when I take my eyes off you – trusting in myself to save me – instead of trusting in You. You are unfailing in love and compassion and mercy and power and kindness. I choose to join myself to you today again – clothe me with joy!

Psalm 29

1 Praise the Lord, you mighty angels. Praise the Lord for his glory and strength. 2 Praise the Lord for the glory that belongs to him. Worship the Lord because of his beauty and holiness. 3 The voice of the Lord is heard over the waters. The God of glory thunders. The Lord thunders over the mighty waters. 4 The voice of the Lord is powerful. The voice of the Lord is majestic. 5 The voice of the Lord breaks the cedar trees. The Lord breaks the cedars of Lebanon into pieces. 6 He makes the mountains of Lebanon skip like a calf. He makes Mount Hermon jump like a young wild ox. 7 The voice of the Lord strikes with flashes of lightning. 8 The voice of the Lord shakes the desert. The Lord shakes the Desert of Kadesh. 9 The voice of the Lord twists the oak trees. It strips the forests bare. And in his temple everyone cries out, “Glory!” 10 The Lord on his throne rules over the flood. The Lord rules from his throne as King forever. 11 The Lord gives strength to his people. The Lord blesses his people with peace.

The magnificence and power of God strikes me as a key focus of this Psalm. We are called to praise God because He is glorious, and thus high praise is due to him.

David focuses quite specifically on the voice of the Lord – giving a very awesome description of God’s voice. God’s voice thunders, is powerful and is majestic. God’s voice breaks tall cedars; makes nations leap like young nervous calves; strikes like lightning, shakes the desert, twists the oaks, strips forests bare.

How easy it is for me to forget the awesome power of who it is I come before. But this description of the voice of the Lord reminds me that our God is not tame, not weak, and is most certainly worthy of our highest reverence. David knew this, and so ascribed to the Lord in his mind and in his words highest reverence, praise and awe of God.

I am also encouraged by this Psalm to be creative in my praise and reverence. David may well be referring to mighty storms; these stirred in his heart great praise of God. When was the last time I witnessed a mighty natural event, or a wonderful nature moment, and allowed my heart to go to a place of reverence and awe of God? David may well be referring to literal events, but there seems also to be metaphor and imagination in the psalm. What helpful and powerful metaphor and imagination. I am encouraged to keep pushing my praise beyond its natural drift into the mundane and the repetitive, and instead push my praise into the heights of imagination – imagining and declaring what God’s power and majesty can be likened to.

God, help me, through the encouragement of this Psalm, to keep my worship of you rich, imaginative, and inspired. Help me to draw upon the world around me, and the thoughts that this inspires within me, to lift up soaring praise and adoration of you, for you are worthy of my highest praises.

Psalm 28

1 Lord, my Rock, I call out to you. Pay attention to me. If you remain silent, I will die. I will be like those who have gone down into the grave. 2 Hear my cry for your favor when I call out to you for help. Hear me when I lift up my hands in prayer toward your Most Holy Room. 3 Don’t drag me away with sinners. Don’t drag me away with those who do evil. They speak in a friendly way to their neighbors. But their hearts are full of hatred. 4 Pay them back for their evil actions. Pay them back for what their hands have done. Give them exactly what they should get. 5 They don’t care about the Lord’s mighty acts. They don’t care about what his hands have done. So he will tear them down. He will never build them up again. 6 Give praise to the Lord. He has heard my cry for his favor. 7 The Lord gives me strength. He is like a shield that keeps me safe. My heart trusts in him, and he helps me. My heart jumps for joy. I will sing and give thanks to him. 8 The Lord gives strength to his people. He guards and saves his anointed king. 9 Save your people. Bless those who belong to you. Be their shepherd. Take care of them forever.

In this Psalm, verse one leaps out to me; David is crying out to the Lord, his Rock, he begs God “do not be silent”, because if God is silent, he will be like those who have gone down to the pit.

When we are desperate we cry out to Jesus. He is our Rock and He is the ONLY one who can deliver us, He is the immovable foundation of all our hopes and our refuge in time of trouble: we must be unmoved in our determination to flee to him as our stronghold in every hour of danger. If we feel we cannot hear God, then we must pray more earnestly and not give up.

How overwhelming it would be if we felt God would not answer our prayers. We would be like those who have gone to hell – dead people. We would be lost and undone, our hope and our help will be destroyed.

We cling to God as we must have answers to our prayers: when we are desperate we need God to speak peace to our troubled minds, for God loves us with an

overwhelming and unfathomable love.

Lift out hands towards heaven, knowing that God listens, and expect an answer from your Lord.

Thank You, Lord Jesus, for the way you deal with me when I am struggling.  I struggle when I become troubled by myself, others and events that are out of my control.  Sometimes I am OK, and then it’s like some button has been pushed inside me and I find myself in a panic.  Change my heart, my soul and my spirit Lord Jesus.  Be the Master of my reactions, so that I know myself and that I have confidence that I am and I live like a child of God, Thank you Lord.  AMEN

Psalm 27

1 The Lord gives me light and saves me. Why should I fear anyone? The Lord is my place of safety. Why should I be afraid? 2 My enemies are evil. They will trip and fall when they attack me and try to eat me alive. 3 Even if an army attacks me, my heart will not be afraid. Even if war breaks out against me, I will still trust in God. 4 I’m asking the Lord for only one thing. Here is what I want. I want to live in the house of the Lord all the days of my life. I want to look at the beauty of the Lord. I want to worship him in his temple. 5 When I’m in trouble, he will keep me safe in his house. He will hide me in the safety of his holy tent. He will put me on a rock that is very high. 6 Then I will win the battle over my enemies who are all around me. At his holy tent I will offer my sacrifice with shouts of joy. I will sing and make music to the Lord. 7 Lord, hear my voice when I call out to you. Show me your favor and answer me. 8 My heart says, “Look to him!” Lord, I will look to you. 9 Don’t turn your face away from me. Don’t turn me away because you are angry. You have helped me. God my Savior, don’t say no to me. Don’t desert me. 10 My father and mother may desert me, but the Lord will accept me. 11 Lord, teach me your ways. Lead me along a straight path. There are many people who beat me down. 12 My enemies want to harm me. So don’t turn me over to them. Witnesses who tell lies are rising up against me. They are trying to destroy me. 13 Here is something I am still sure of. I will see the Lord’s goodness while I’m still alive. 14 Wait for the Lord. Be strong and don’t lose hope. Wait for the Lord.

David’s confidence in God always astounds me!

There are enemies, false witnesses, adversaries, evildoers – many are the names he calls them – that surround him but he simplifies life down to one single desire and that is what he seeks after.  He doesn’t wait for it to come to him but he seeks it out ..  to live in the house of the Lord, the place where God’s abiding presence dwells.  He tells his heart, “Come .. seek His face.”

That abiding presence is where we get perspective, and David knew it.  Where we know that the issues of our lives are not bigger than God, where we know there is nothing to fear, where our hearts can be courageous, where we know that we are sheltered and

yet lift high, where all the battles are won.

Unlike David, I have God’s abiding presence living in me – the Holy Spirit but my heart still echo’s David’s, to consciously seek that single desire and dwell in His abiding presence all the days of my life.
