In this Psalm David starts with a statement – “In the Lord I take refuge.”  And that’s it for David.  Regardless what anyone says to him or how much it seems the wicked are winning – that is Davids’ position.  He responds to those who tell him to run – that God is on the […]

Reading the Psalms is interesting – the poetry is something most of us are not very used too. But they were written by people struggling to understand this world and the way it works – just like us – they just express their feelings and thoughts differently – they could use more than 140 characters […]

David gets straight to the point in this Psalm.  He makes plain  he will praise the Lord and has wonderful deeds to speak of about God.  He then tells his listeners about the Lord’s work among David’s enemies – that He has made a powerful impression on them, so much so that “even the memory […]

“Lord our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth” Psalm 8 is an example of the Psalms at its finest. This line, which sandwiches the chapter, is one we should all commit to memory. Poetic and profound, it’s a catch cry of God’s people throughout all of history up to today. The […]

Scripture: “…God is a righteous judge, a God who displays his wrath every day…” My initial reaction to this Psalm, and particularly the quoted verse, is that it’s very intense. God displays his wrath every day. Wow! Do I think of God in this manner? Do I know God to be like this? Do I want God […]

Where are you God? How long is this going to go on for? I’ve certainly cried those prayers. David is doing the same. Crying out to God in complete torment –  physically, emotionally he is done. Even though feeling near death he knows only God can come through & restore him. His enemies may be […]

Three interesting reactions. Angels have just told some shepherds that the Messiah has been born in Bethlehem. They were out in the fields to see them because it’s their job to never ever leave the sheep. But that’s exactly what they did. The angels didn’t tell them to go, but they are so excited at […]

Christmas is such an exciting time of year, however as it draws close there are so many things to do. From shopping and cooking, to all the extra calendar events, it’s a busy time of year for all of us. However, this passage so clearly reminds us the true heart behind why we celebrate Christmas […]

What a soaring song – yes a lament of sorts, yet also a song of such power, praise and thanksgiving.  David pleads for the Lord to hear him, which He clearly does.  I love that David gives God his requests then waits, expectantly, for an answer.  David knows the key of faith, to expectant waiting […]

Today’s passage shows us that we can rejoice in God’s protection and peace. The writer of this psalm is David. Regardless of when David wrote this, he put his trust in God because the Lord has mercy on him and hears his prayer. Many people love delusions and seek false gods and ask “who can […]
