Messiah in Psalms



David was a prophet in that the Spirit revealed things about David’s superlative descendant as David wrote his poetry for the Psalter.  The psalms are rich in messages about the Messiah.  Psalm 110 stands above many in the mysteries it reveals about the coming King and Priest and Judge.  We spend a few minutes unpacking the treasurers of Jesus placed within Psalm 110.

Psalm 110:1-7

Who will you follow?



Psalm 2 builds on the foundation left by Psalm 1. In light of eternity, don’t be foolish and rebel against the Word of God. He has shown what the future holds. Don’t be on the wrong side of history. God wins. Always has and always will. Circumstances may deceived many to think that people can redefine good and evil. But the patience of God will one one day be done, and justice will come from heaven through the Son on earth. Be wise. Be ready for that day. The beginning of wisdom prepares us for the end. Love Him with rejoicing. One day, He will make all things right.

Where are you going?



Psalm 1 is a good place to start. The contrast is laid before us. The ways of the ungodly are easier to slide into than you think but the end is disaster. But the opposite is to delight in having relationship with the LORD through His Word and His Spirit. Which will you choose today?

Humanity made in Image of God



God made the first humans to be His representatives (image-bearers) within the material creation.  They went rogue and broke the system and we all descend from that catastrophe.  Yet God still loves His fallen image-bearers and is redeeming them and repairing them through the perfect Image of God, Jesus Christ.

Psalm 8 and Psalm 139

Forgiven by God to Know Him



“The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom” (Proverbs 9:10).  But what does it mean to fear the LORD?   Yet the psalmist tells us in Psalm 130 that we are forgiven our sins in order that we would fear the LORD.  Perhaps we should reconsider our forgiveness in order to better know the LORD who forgives.

Psalm 130

Importance of Weakness



We all face times when the world seems out of control and a dangerous place.  For many of us, the last couple months have seemed such a time.  But in those positions of weakness, as much as we hate them, embracing that weakness gives us opportunity to know God in a more intimate way.  Only then can we know as the psalmist that the LORD is our refuge and our strength.

Psalm 46

Praise the LORD



The works of the LORD show that He deserves to be praised.  Those works reveal His character.  Those works compel us to fear God and do His commandments.  The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom.

Psalm 111

Song of Giving Thanks



Regardless of how we may feel, the truth is unchangeable.  And God is unchangeable and always worthy of praise.  We always have reason to give thanks.  Psalm 100 helps us see why.   We belong to One who is always good and has everlasting mercy.

Psalm 100

Psalm 91 – God our Refuge



The psalmist reminds us in Psalm 91 that we have no refuge like our God.  He is security when disease threatens and danger approaches.  The LORD may allow us to see the danger.  But when we cry out to Him, He is faithful to His promises to provide for His children.  Thank you, Jesus!

Psalm 91

Why David confessed his guilt before God.



David was a man after God’s own heart.  Yet he was not a flawless man.  David sinned with tragic consequences. But the man with a heart who pursued God was sure to repent once he was confronted with his failures.  We look at the features of David’s change of mind from sinning to repenting.  He knew that God would accept his plea for mercy and restore the joy of his salvation.   Do we have a heart that yearns for God even after we have let God down?

Psalm 51:1 – 19
