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.

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 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?

Psalm 15 We get it. The past couple of days have been a little unsettling. Here is this beautiful poem about the person who actually gets to dwell with God and what we've been saying about it is none of us fit the bill. But, honestly, it is only by noticing that without watering down what it says that really gets us to how important this psalm is. …

Psalm 14 For some reason, the fool often is connected with mistreating the poor. Perhaps the poor come up because they have no place to turn but to God for refuge. And the fool often thinks he can get away with what he wants with them because the fool doesn't see God's protection. Edwin and Andrew discuss what it means to take refuge in God and why…
 
Psalm 14 Psalm 14 isn't necessarily talking about the avowed atheist. It also includes the practical atheist. In other words, there are some people who will verbally claim belief in God, but they live like there isn't one. Or, they live like His existence is inconsequential. And that is demonstrated in no place greater than in prayer. I may claim t…
 
Psalm 14 So, the fool says in his heart that there is no God. Well, I've never done that, so I'm not a fool. Wait! What? You're saying no one has done good? But I'm someone.

Psalm 13 Despite all the fears and emotions David is facing, he maintained faith. He remembered that God had dealt bountifully with him.

Edwin and Andrew talk about the ov…
 
Psalm 13 Did David start with his biggest fear or has he been building up to it? We don't know. But we do know for many of us, this last fear is the biggest. David fears the ridicule of the enemies.

Psalm 13 Satan wants you to believe you are the very first and only follower of God to feel abandoned and alone. He wants you to think that no one else ever felt like you do on your bad days.

Enjoy the ride. Rea…
 
Psalm 12 A third layer of the psalm, peeling from the beginning and the end, brings us to a contrast. On the one hand, we have the false confidence of the liars in their own words.

Psalm 12 As we peel back the layers of Psalm 12, even though David feels alone and isolated, though he feels no one is serving the Lord but himself, he knows that God will protect him.

The fourth foundation, and we make no claim that this week's list of foundations is exhaustive, should give us all hope. The Lord loves the upright.
