Bible Reading: Psalm 52

Psalm 52Why do you boast in evil, O mighty man? The lovingkindness of God endures all day long.Your tongue devises destruction, Like a sharp razor, O worker of deceit.You love evil more than good, Falsehood more than speaking what is right. Selah.You love all words that devour, O deceitful tongue.But God will break you down forever; He will snatch you up and tear you away ...

Psalm 50 (Text not provided. Please read from your Bible) Every year the president gives the State of the Union address. It was originally designed to be a message for congress but with the advent of television it has become another way for the president to speak to the country at large. Leading up to the speech, many pundits try to guess the content and tone of the speec...

Bible Reading: Psalm 49

Psalm 49 (No text provided. Please read with own Bible.) Growing up in North Carolina I developed a deep love for basketball, bacon, and cars to name just a few! The Carolinas were also known for tobacco but thankfully it did not interest me as much as the sports and food. My basketball days are over except for watching on it on TV, bacon is still as tasty but trying to e...

Bible Teaching: Psalm 45

Psalm 45My heart overflows with a good theme; I address my verses to the King; my tongue is the pen of a ready writer. You are fairer than the sons of men; grace is poured upon Your lips; therefore God has blessed You forever. Gird Your sword on Your thigh, O Mighty One, in Your splendor and Your majesty! And in Your majesty ride on victoriously, for the cause of truth and...

Bible Reading: Psalm 44

Psalm 44 (Text unavailable. Please read on your own.) It is vital to put our trust in the right place. Our trust should not ultimately be in our own strength (vv.3,6). Rather, you are to trust the Lord: 'It's You who saved us' (v.7, MSG).' This psalm is addressed to God as King (v.4). That God is the King (and real leader) of Israel is a common idea in the psalms. Suffer...

Bible Reading: Psalm 38

Psalm 38 (No text provided. Please read from your own bible.) Today's reading is a vivid reminder of the important aspect of being penitent. When we, as followers of Jesus Christ, fall short and commit acts of sin, it is crucial that we exhibit remorse and pray to our Father for forgiveness. Also vital is repentance. We are not only to be remorseful, but we must turn away...

Bible Reading: Psalm 37

Psalm 37 (Text not provided. Please read from your own bible.) In Psalm 37:1-5, David contrasts the evil or unrighteous man and the righteous. It can be very tempting at times to look at others that don't know Christ and either fear them or envy their lifestyle. David had constant battles with his enemies, and certainly had reason to fret or worry for his own life, but he...

Bible Reading: Psalm 36

Psalm 36Transgression speaks to the ungodly within his heart; There is no fear of God before his eyes. For it flatters him in his own eyes concerning the discovery of his iniquity and the hatred of it. The words of his mouth are wickedness and deceit; He has ceased to be wise and to do good. He plans wickedness upon his bed; He sets himself on a path that is not good; He d...

Psalm 35 (Text unavailable. Please read on your own.) At any time, you can call out to God for help. Life is a battle and there are bound to be those who will be out to get us. David prays that God would contend with those who contend against him (v.1a). He prays, 'Reassure me; let me hear you say, "I'll save you."' (v.3, MSG).

Bible Reading: Psalm 34

Psalm 34 (Text not provided. Please read from own bible.) This is one of my most favorite psalms. David invites the Israelites to come and "magnify the Lord with me, and let us exalt His name together" (34.3). The foundational and guiding principle to living for the glory of God is focused on by David as he is teaching those with him, maybe even those younger, surely a ri...
