Psalm 27 Edwin and Andrew consider the background of this psalm. David recognizes that he is not alone in walking with the Lord. He is not alone in walking through dark valleys. His wording takes us back to another great servant of the Lord who also walked through dark valleys, but the Lord was his light. The Lord was with him. Read the written dev…
 
Psalm 27 David is surrounded by enemies. They are violent, hateful, wicked, evil. However, David's #1 goal is a bit shocking. He wants the enemies defeated, but not for the reason most of us would want our enemies defeated. Andrew and Edwin discuss David's #1 goal and #1 request. It is all about God, His house, His presence, His face. Read the writ…
 
Psalm 27 Andrew and Edwin recognize that this week's psalm sounds a whole lot like a practical foray into the valley of the shadow of death mentioned back in Psalm 23. But David is able to make it through because the Lord is the light, the salvation, and the strength. Read the written devo that goes along with this episode by clicking here. Let us …
 
Psalm 26 David loved the Lord's house, the Lord's grace, the Lord's way, and the Lord's friend. All of this should lead us to love the Lord's Son. After all, it is because of Jesus that this psalm is true and can apply to any of us. Read the written devo that goes along with this episode by clicking here.

Psalm 26 David loved the Lord's house, the Lord's grace, the Lord's ways, and the Lord's friends. After all, as Andrew and Edwin discuss, we can't really dwell in the Lord's house if we are constantly having to leave to hang out with our best friends. Who are your best friends? Read the written devo that goes along with this episode by clicking her…
 
Psalm 26 David loved the Lord's house and the Lord's grace. He also loved the Lord's ways. That is, he understood that entering the Lord's house by the Lord's grace did not leave him free to live just however he wanted. Part of the Lord's grace was directing David in the proper ways of getting to the house and of living there. David wanted to be in…
 
Psalm 26 David loved the Lord's house. He also loved the Lord's grace. After all, it was only because of the Lord's grace that he was allowed to dwell in the Lord's house. And that grace sometimes took on shocking forms. Read the written devo that goes along with this episode by clicking here. Let us know what you are learning or any questions you …
 
Psalm 26 This psalm is all about what David loves. Andrew and Edwin start with David's love for God's house and what that means for us. But first, they discuss whether David is asking for vindication or judgment in that first verse. This leads to a whole discussion on when the psalm was written and what is was used for. Read the written devo that g…
 
Psalm 25 As Andrew and Edwin wrap up this week's conversations on Psalm 25, Edwin reveals the second most important lesson he has ever learned about prayer. It is demonstrated by the meditations of this psalm. He encourages each of us to walk through the very habit demonstrated by David here of thinking through and finding a reason anchored in God'…
 
Psalm 25 Andrew and Edwin are moved by the main request of Psalm 25. The psalmist isn't focused on health or wealth. Rather, the psalmist wants knowledge. Specifically, the psalmist wants God to teach him His way. That leads them to ask what we are praying for? What are our biggest requests? In this episode, they read from a unique translation of t…
 
Psalm 25 Edwin reads from the New Jerusalem Bible to convey something that often gets lost in translation. This psalm is an acrostic. Each verse starts with a successive letter of the Hebrew alphabet (though it is not perfect). This causes Andrew and Edwin to jump off into a discussion about mnemonic devices, learning tricks and tools. And further …
 
Psalm 25 It is almost as if Psalm 25 is answering the anticipated objection to Psalm 24. In that psalm, we are told only those with clean hands and pure hearts will ascend the Lord's holy hill. This leaves us with a real quandary. I'm a sinner? What hope do I have? Andrew and Edwin examine the powerful nature of God, His mercy, love, and forgivenes…
 
Psalm 25 A well-known song comes from this week's psalm. "Unto Thee, O Lord!" What a great song. Andrew and Edwin delve into lifting up our souls to God showing how this connects to the previous psalm that said those who lift their soul up to what is false will not climb God's holy hill. But this psalm is about the person who lifts up his soul to Y…
 
Psalm 24 Andrew and Edwin examine how Psalm 24 demonstrates Israel's greatest failure. Psalm 24 explains how Israel should have acted when Jesus came on the scene. But they didn't. They didn't open wide the gates and march Jesus into the temple, crowning Him in God's throne room. They should have. But they didn't. They failed. Read the written devo…
 
Psalm 24 Andrew and Edwin talk about the qualifications for climbing God's holy hill. They are able to trek through the Scriptures and find the same principles in multiple passages to discover that you, yes you, are able to climb God's holy hill.

Psalm 24 From ancient times, the human concept has been that the gods live "up there." So, high places, mountains, and towers have always been important in religion. We see it in the tower of Babel. But, shockingly, we even see it in the Mountain of the Lord. Andrew and Edwin discuss this idea of hills and towers in worshiping God or sometimes even…
 
Psalm 24 It doesn't show up as much in English, but the emphasis in Psalm 24 is not on the world, it's places and it's people. Rather, the emphasis on Yahweh who conquered and created. To Yahweh, the Lord, the world belongs. Andrew and Edwin discuss the Lord and His ownership of all things. This tells us a bit about God's nature. He isn't our perso…
 
Psalm 23 Throughout the week, we've picked up on a pattern. Whether it was David or Israel, God takes His chosen from the pasture to the palace. Andrew and Edwin talk about that pattern for the modern saint as well. We may be wandering in the wilderness now, roaming about the pasture. But our Shepherd is taking us to be the guests at His wedding fe…
 
Psalm 23 This week's psalm not only tells the life-story of David, it also tells the nation-story of Israel. They also went from the pasture to the palace. That is, according to 2 Samuel 7, they went from wandering in the wilderness to being planted in the Promised Land. Andrew and Edwin discuss how Psalm 23 mirrors Israel's history. Read the writt…
 
Psalm 23 In past conversations, we recognized two potential metaphors in Psalm 23: Shepherd and Host. Andrew and Edwin springboard off of these shifts, then connect Psalm 23 back to 2 Samuel 7 to see how Psalm 23 presents the life story of David as God took him from the pasture to the palace. Read the written devo that goes along with this episode …
 
Psalm 23 Some see the sheep/Shepherd metaphor running through all of Psalm 23. Most see a shift to a guest/Host metaphor. Either way, the second half of the psalm is just as comforting as the first. Andrew and Edwin discuss sitting at a table in the presence of enemies, overflowing cups, anointed heads, and the pursuit of goodness and mercy. Read t…
 
Psalm 23 The Lord is my Shepherd! How comforting. Andrew and Edwin walk us through the sheep and shepherd relationship we have with God as described in Psalm 23. In this episode, Edwin and Andrew briefly discuss the meaning of the "valley of the shadow of death." If you are interested in digging deeper into that study, you may want to check out Edw…
 
Psalm 22 The celebration at the end of Psalm 22 points back to the Law regarding thanksgiving offerings. But it also points forward to the celebration meal in which we participate today. Andrew and Edwin discuss the Lord's Supper. We know, you can't imagine how we get there. But it really does. Read the written devo that goes along with this episod…
 
Psalm 22 The connection to Jesus is much stronger in this psalm than in many of the others. After all, Jesus Himself makes the connection while on the cross. When He wants to express what He is going through while on the cross, He uses this psalm to do so. Andrew and Edwin jump off from there to talk about Jesus in this psalm. Read the written devo…
 
Psalm 21 This week's psalm ends on a high note of praise. We needed that after some of the hard conversations from earlier in the psalm. Andrew and Edwin take these last verses of the psalm and springboard into a discussion of singing and praise. Read the written devo that goes along with this episode by clicking here. Let us know what you are lear…
 
Psalm 21 In yesterday's conversation, we talked about the judgment coming on the enemies of God and His anointed King. It was shocking, brutal, and, frankly, a little uncomfortable. And it leaves us thinking of family, friends, neighbors, co-workers, and so many others that we love. We don't want them to face this judgment. Andrew and Edwin point o…
 
Psalm 21 This prayer of thanksgiving looks back to the victory God had recently given the king. But it also looks forward to the ongoing victories that would come to God's faithful king. And it is not at all pretty for the king's enemies. In fact, this is one of those imprecatory type prayers that really bothers our modern ears. Andrew and Edwin di…
 
Psalm 21 We prayed for the King to receive victory (remember Psalm 20?). And he had victory. But why? Because the king was so awesome? Not at all. But because the King serves and trusts and awesome God. Why give thanks when the battle is over? Because we realize God won the battle, not us. Read the written devo that goes along with this episode by …
 
Psalm 20 As Edwin and Andrew wrap up their conversations on Psalm 20, the application takes a surprising turn. This is a prayer for the king before battle, but can we pray it for each other? Andrew and Edwin believe so, explain their reasons, and apply it to our own prayers for one another. Read the written devo that goes along with this episode by…
 
Psalm 20 Edwin and Andrew springboard off of previous conversations and find Jesus in Psalm 20. If this is a prayer for the king, we can use it as a prayer for OUR King. They discuss how we can pray this for our own battles under King Jesus and the victories we are seeking. Read the written devo that goes along with this episode by clicking here. L…

Psalm 20 Edwin and Andrew discuss David's use of the phrase "God of Jacob." That's not a very common name for Yahweh, thought it is found in the Psalm more than anywhere else. However, David's use of it in this psalm certainly brings to minds a really powerful point in the context of this battle prayer. Read the written devo that goes along with th…
 
Psalm 20 Edwin and Andrew discuss the nature of Psalm 20 as a pre-battle prayer for the Israelites on behalf of their king, and by extension their army and their nation.

Psalm 19 The final section of Psalm 19 not only highlights the impact the Word of the Lord should have on our words, but exposes how far short we've fallen from the Lord's Word. Edwin and Andrew discuss how the Word grows us and helps us overcome sin. Read the written devo that goes along with this episode by clicking here. Let us know what you are…

Psalm 18 Edwin and Andrew take on another one of the great questions from the Psalms, in fact, from Scripture in general. One of the big issues surrounding the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus is why God would make His chosen one suffer. Surely He wouldn't do that. Psalm 18 actually shows us otherwise. In fact, it shows that God was dealing…
 
Psalm 18 Edwin and Andrew take on one of the biggest issues of the psalms. Does God do what He promises or not? Sure, most of the psalms include statements of faith that He will, but does He ever actually do it. Psalm 18 answers with a resounding YES!

Let us know wh…
