Happy New Year! This year, we’re going to stay focused in the book of the Psalms. I have not attempted to do expositional work on each psalm. There are excellent books by seasoned scholars for that. My aim has been to provide daily devotionals purposed to challenge, convict, comfort, encourage, and inspire. The Psalms are real and raw. The writers hold nothing back. There are times of great praise and… Continue Reading…

In the book of Psalms there are eleven messianic or royal psalms—songs written for a king. Many of these psalms are quoted in the New Testament in direct reference to Jesus.

Psalm 2 is a messianic or royal psalm written for the coronation of an Old Testament king but it also looked forward to the crowning of King Jesus.

It’s tough when you are involved in a serious conflict. It is devastating when that conflict is with one of your children.

God is on your side! He brings relief. He delivers mercy. He hears your prayer.

There is no right time or wrong time to talk to God. In fact, we should always have Him on our hearts and minds.

Life’s path is filled with precarious stretches and wayward people.

Sometimes sleep won’t come. Sometimes the pain seems unbearable. Sometimes anxiety attacks the soul.

Sorrow is exhausting. The emotion wears us out. Pain takes its toll.

Have you ever been unjustly accused…at work, by friends, or even in your home?

So, remember, God is on your side. All He does is right.

Psalm 8  To the choirmaster: according to The Gittith. A Psalm of David. O LORD, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth! You have set your glory above the heavens. Out of the mouth of babies and infants, you have established strength because of your foes, to still the enemy and the avenger. When I look at your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and… Continue Reading…

Psalm 9:1-6  To the choirmaster: according to Muthlabben. A Psalm of David. I will give thanks to the LORD with my whole heart; I will recount all of your wonderful deeds. I will be glad and exult in you; I will sing praise to your name, O Most High. When my enemies turn back, they stumble and perish before your presence. For you have maintained my just cause; you have sat… Continue Reading…

Psalm 9:7-12   But the LORD sits enthroned forever; he has established his throne for justice, and he judges the world with righteousness; he judges the peoples with uprightness. The LORD is a stronghold for the oppressed, a stronghold in times of trouble. And those who know your name put their trust in you, for you, O LORD, have not forsaken those who seek you. Sing praises to the LORD,… Continue Reading…

Psalm 9:13-20   LORD, see how my enemies persecute me! Have mercy and lift me up from the gates of death, that I may declare your praises in the gates of Daughter Zion, and there rejoice in your salvation. The nations have fallen into the pit they have dug; their feet are caught in the net they have hidden. The Lord is known by his acts of justice; the wicked are ensnared… Continue Reading…

Psalm 10:1-11   Why, LORD, do you stand far off? Why do you hide yourself in times of trouble? In his arrogance the wicked man hunts down the weak, who are caught in the schemes he devises. He boasts about the cravings of his heart; he blesses the greedy and reviles the LORD. In his pride the wicked man does not seek him; in all his thoughts there is no… Continue Reading…

Psalm 10:12-18   Arise, LORD! Lift up your hand, O God. Do not forget the helpless. Why does the wicked man revile God? Why does he say to himself, “He won’t call me to account”? But you, God, see the trouble of the afflicted; you consider their grief and take it in hand. The victims commit themselves to you; you are the helper of the fatherless. Break the arm of… Continue Reading…

Psalm 11  For the director of music. Of David In the LORD I take refuge. How then can you say to me: “Flee like a bird to your mountain. For look, the wicked bend their bows; they set their arrows against the strings to shoot from the shadows at the upright in heart. When the foundations are being destroyed, what can the righteous do?” The LORD is in his holy… Continue Reading…

Psalm 12  For the director of music. According to sheminith. A psalm of David Help, LORD, for no one is faithful anymore; those who are loyal have vanished from the human race. Everyone lies to their neighbor; they flatter with their lips but harbor deception in their hearts. May the LORD silence all flattering lips and every boastful tongue—those who say, “By our tongues we will prevail; our own lips will… Continue Reading…

Psalm 13  For the director of music. A psalm of David How long, LORD? Will you forget me forever? How long will you hide your face from me? How long must I wrestle with my thoughts and day after day have sorrow in my heart? How long will my enemy triumph over me? Look on me and answer, LORD my God. Give light to my eyes, or I will sleep… Continue Reading…
