  • The Lord is my Strength and my Shield (Ps 28)

    The Lord is my Strength and my Shield (Ps 28)


    Psalm 28 Whereas last week we considered God as a stronghold, this week we consider God as your strength and shield. They are parallel themes and the Psalm gives us a model for our own prayers. So, do not lose heart or the will to pray. We need God to answer, and he will. Why?

  • God as your Stronghold (Ps 27)

    God as your Stronghold (Ps 27)


    Psalm 27 The Lord is the stronghold of my life; of whom shall I be afraid? It is an ever increasing need to know this to be true, especially as the world is less and less tolerant of the church and Biblical teaching. The New Testament letters teach us that if you are a follower

  • Integrity (Ps 26)

    Integrity (Ps 26)


    Psalm 26 What does your life look like? If you asked the people who knew you best to give an anonymous description of your character, what kind of picture would they paint? If you asked the grocery store clerk where you shop, the cleaning crew where you work, the teachers at your kid’s school (or

  • Our Judgment is Our Condemnation (Ro 2:1-4)

    Our Judgment is Our Condemnation (Ro 2:1-4)


    Romans 2:1-4 We are all prone to self-righteousness, particularly in a day when culture seems to promote it. But the gospel provides a path to freedom.  

  • Living Hope

    Living Hope


    1 Peter 1:3-9 The believer’s hope yields joy because it is built on the past, refined by the present and fueled by a promise for the future. It is a “living hope” recognized by joy. As such, it gives a light to the world around you. Wesley saw it in the lives of other and

  • Friendship of the Lord (Ps 25)

    Friendship of the Lord (Ps 25)


    This Psalm is a prayer and meditation regarding the path we are to walk. We have a destination that is implied, a lot of obstacles along the way, and both a map and a friend to make sure we arrive.

  • The King of Glory

    The King of Glory


    Psalm 24 This Psalm follows up God’s victory over the Philistines as David brings the ark of the covenant into Jerusalem. It is a triumphal entry of grand proportions and is marked with trumpets, tambourines. cymbals and the shouts of the people. As David leads the procession he dances before the Lord, demonstrating both his

  • The Shadow of Death (Ps 23)

    The Shadow of Death (Ps 23)


    Psalm 23 When we think of Palm Sunday, we think of the triumphant way Jesus came into Jerusalem at the beginning of his final fateful week. Jesus is coming to bring victory, but the victory he brings comes through defeat. Before he can sit on his throne as King of Kings and Lord of Lords,

  • Sweetness in the Soul (Ps 16)

    Sweetness in the Soul (Ps 16)


    Psalm 16 God gives us vision of a resurrection and this vision is meant to shape our pursuits, our values, and the way we look at life. We will not stay in the grave! That vision is guaranteed by the resurrection of Christ.  Psalm 16 speaks of Christ’s resurrection in verse 10, which is referenced twice

  • A Great Threat (Jo 5-6)

    A Great Threat (Jo 5-6)


    Joshua 5:13-6:27

  • Who Dwells with God? (Ps 15)

    Who Dwells with God? (Ps 15)


    Psalm 15 O Lord, who shall sojourn in your tent? Who shall dwell on your holy hill?  This question isn’t like a catechism question that gives us a technical answer to a theological question. If we read as such, we might be inclined to think of his answer as a set of requirements that we

  • The Heart of a Fool (Ps 14)

    The Heart of a Fool (Ps 14)


    Psalm 14 At the heart of what the Bible defines as wise is living with God in mind. That’s really it. It’s that simple. The one who lives, who makes his choices and decisions with God in mind, is the one who is wise. And the one who does not is considered foolish.

  • How Long, O Lord? (Ps 13)

    How Long, O Lord? (Ps 13)


    Psalm 13 “How Long, O Lord?” is a growing sentiment as the struggles of 2021 add to those of 2020. The hits just seem to pile on one after another. Its enough to cause you to wonder where God is in all of this. Is he real? Does he exist? If he existed, wouldn’t things

  • Where are the Faithful? (Ps 12)

    Where are the Faithful? (Ps 12)


    Psalm 12 What do you do when society is decaying around you? When you don’t know who to trust anymore when it comes to politicians, media, and even academia? The naive would say, surely that’s not the case. The pessimist would retreat into cynicism. What does the believer do? He must value the word of

  • The More Things Change… (Luke 18:9-14)

    The More Things Change… (Luke 18:9-14)


    Luke 18:9-14 We need to remember the prayer of the tax collector all the more in an age that is ruled by finger pointing.

  • The Joy of the Gospel

    The Joy of the Gospel


    John 2:1-12 Joy is the prerogative of the Christian’s life and it is the gospel that brings it forth.

  • When the Foundations are Destroyed (Ps 11)

    When the Foundations are Destroyed (Ps 11)


    Psalm 11 As you walk with the Lord in the world you will be faced with moments when worldly wisdom runs counter to faith. And the farther away our world is from a Biblical view of morality and justice, the more these moments will come. David’s psalm serves as a guide. In it we find David

  • Singing His Majesty (Ps 8)

    Singing His Majesty (Ps 8)


    Psalm 8 This is the first Psalm devoted to praise. The earlier Psalms (after the first 2) are prayers, spurred by distress. But this Psalm is simply praise. Praise is a familiar practice in the worship of God and it is something that stirs the soul. We need our souls to be stirred. But what

  • Who Can I Trust? (Psalm 146)

    Who Can I Trust? (Psalm 146)


    Psalm 146 Have you seen the meme making its way around, “I’d like to cancel my subscription to 2021. I’ve experienced the free trial period and I’m not interested.” And we were so thankful to be done with 2020. How do I speak to the events of the week? This Psalm keeps resonating in my

  • Praying for Judgment (Ps 7)

    Praying for Judgment (Ps 7)


    Psalm 7 As we turn our attention to this psalm, we find a prayer offered in the midst of a threatening world. It connects us to the greater reality beyond our own society; to a civilization without sin. It gives us hope. This prayer is a “signal fire.” In this signal fire prayer we are
