Psalm 14

I’ve heard it said nobody talks so constantly about God as those who insist that there is no God.  I believe that God not only exists, but He is the Creator of heaven and earth and the Father of Jesus Who died on the cross for our sins.  I believe […]

Psalm 13

Has the Lord been good to you?  David thought so when he wrote those words in Psalm 13:6.  How many times has all the good the Lord has done for us been overshadowed by all that’s not going well inside and around us?  David calls out to the Lord in […]

Psalm 12

Where have the godly gone?  That seems to be the resounding question today amidst ever increasing evil and those who have gone away from the Lord. This was David’s concern as well when He wrote Psalm 12.  David desired for Israel to fulfill God’s plan as His people, but sin […]

Psalm 11

Have you ever received bad advice?  The worst is getting bad advice from good people you trust.  This seems to be the situation of Psalm 11.  When anyone gives you advice, you must test it against God’s Word, character, and Spirit.  David refused to run away in fear during what […]

Psalm 10

Have you ever asked, “Why do bad people seem to prosper and get away with it?”  That question is usually accompanied by, “Where is God when good people suffer?”  God’s heart is definitely for the widow, poor, and the orphan (e.g. Psalm 68:5; Isaiah 1:17; James 1:27).   It seems there […]

Psalm 9

Psalm 9 is one of praise, both personally for David (vv. 1-8) and corporately for God’s people (vv. 9-20).  David’s praise of the Lord consisted of giving thanks from his heart (v. 1a), telling others about the Lord (v. 1b), rejoicing in gladness (v. 2a), and singing to the Lord.  […]

Psalm 8

Have you ever felt insignificant?  I mean almost trivial in light of everything else?  Out of the billions of people on the earth, the trillions of issues each of them face, and the quadrillions of other items to be concerned about in this world, does anyone really notice you?  Does […]

Psalm 7

Have you ever had someone make up lies about you?  I have, and it hurts!  What hurts the most is not the attack on my character, but that we were once friends.  In those times, I knew the truth and wanted others to know it.  I also knew the faults […]

Psalm 6

Fear, foe, and frailty…these words sum up all that David was facing when he wrote Psalm 6.   He was being assaulted at every point possible – mentally, physically, emotionally, and spiritually.  How overwhelmed he must have felt!  It appears as if he experienced issues related to personal health when he […]

Psalm 5

David was a man of prayer and devotion in the morning (Psalms 5:3, 55:18, 59:16-17; 88:14; 92:3).  He did not let his circumstances dictate his schedule with God.  I’ll admit, I’m more rested in the morning and can focus better on the things of the Lord.  Sometimes, all that has […]
