Psalm 37

August 29, 2021

Access to information does not make us wiser. We need Godly wisdom to guide our lives. Written when he was older (v.25a), David shows us how that looks based on wisdom he gathered throughout his life.

Psalm 34

August 22, 2021

David had a remarkable calling to succeed Saul as king from a very humble beginning. (1 Samuel 16). Even early in life, through no consequence of sin, David was placed in situations that brought on extreme personal duress. Like him, we go to God asking for deliverance, depending, most of all, on His protection.

Psam 94

August 15, 2021

Impartiality under the law is a hallmark of the U.S. system. All are presumed innocent until proven guilty. Under God's law, however, we are already presumed guilty (Romans 3:23). Yet, God can mete out perfect justice while granting mercy. He does this without compromising His character.

Psalm 63

August 8, 2021

We turn to God even when our challenge are the self-inflicted consequences of our sinfulness. His desire is to forgive us.

Psalm 31

August 1, 2021

Everyone experiences anxiety, an ominous view of the future or FEAR (seeing Future Events As Real). We try to avoid it by minimizing it for substituting something to dull it. Neither works. David shows us that we should seek refuge in God.

Psalm 11

July 25, 2021

One response to life challenges is to listen to the counsel of fear, leading to emotional and/or physical withdrawal. However, David shows us that we should listen to the counsel of faith, seeking refuge in God by actively trusting Him.

Psalm 103

July 18, 2021 • Brian Storm

Blessing the Lord starts with eye-opening awareness that moves our souls into gratitude, thankfulness and worship, not just in words, but in the very obedience of our lives. We bless the Lord most significantly, as we walk in obedience driven by reverential awe, allowing Him to make us new...transforming us into His image.

Psalm 25

July 4, 2021 • Blane Leuschner

God is with us, even during difficult times. That is when He gives us opportunities for growth, to His glory.

Psalm 80

June 27, 2021 • Jeff Collins

The psalmist, Asaph, proclaims that God, in His might, is working against Israel (v4-6). When we are unfaithful, there comes a time when He will work against us. However, we remain His people and He will save when we repent and abide in Christ.

Psalm 86

June 20, 2021 • Brian Storm

When we pray, we view needs from our perspective. We have two types of needs; those we believe we're able to handle on our own and those that are beyond the resources within our control. David shows us the right way to pray about our neediness.

Psalm 98

June 13, 2021 • Jay Owen

When God demonstrates His power, He shows His dominion over creation and faithfulness to His covenant people. Praising Him is all creation's response.

Psalm 150

June 6, 2021 • Jay Owen

Often called the "grand doxology for the book of Psalms", these verses show us the outcome of life lived in obedience to God's word.
