January 31, 2013

73:2 But as for me, my feet came close to stumbling, My steps had almost slipped.    3 For I was envious of the arrogant As I saw the prosperity of the wicked.        Have you ever felt this way?  Have you ever been envious of those who live wickedly when you see how they […]

119:105 Your word is a lamp to my feet And a light to my path. Can you honestly say this?  Do you allow God’s word to guide your steps, to light your way?  If so, then also pray with the psalmist, “O send out Your light and Your truth, let them lead me” (43:3).

33:6 By the word of the LORD the heavens were made, And by the breath of His mouth all their host. 7 He gathers the waters of the sea together as a heap; He lays up the deeps in storehouses. 8 Let all the earth fear the LORD; Let all the inhabitants of the world […]

17:8 Keep me as the apple of the eye; Hide me in the shadow of Your wings. Several verses in the Bible contain a phrase similar to “the apple of the eye.”  The Hebrew word translated “apple” is also translated “pupil” on some occasions.  The phrase most often seems to refer to how the eye […]

Proverbs 20:1

20:1 Wine is a mocker, strong drink a brawler, and whoever is intoxicated by it is not wise. Do you want to be wise?  Then don’t drink alcohol.  Period.  If you don’t drink it, then you don’t have to worry about becoming intoxicated by it.  As someone has rightly said, “Bud is not weiser, he’s […]

92:1 It is good to give thanks to the LORD And to sing praises to Your name, O Most High; 2 To declare Your lovingkindness in the morning And Your faithfulness by night, Do you give thanks to God?  If so, is it because you feel you have to or because you know it is […]

Psalm 82:3-4

82:3 Defend the poor and fatherless; Do justice to the afflicted and needy. 4 Deliver the poor and needy; Free them from the hand of the wicked.        God has always commanded His people to care for the less fortunate, such as orphans and widows.  James 1:27 defines doing so as “pure and undefiled religion.”  […]

Psalm 42:1-2

January 23, 2013

42:1 As the deer pants for the water brooks, So my soul pants for You, O God. 2 My soul thirsts for God, for the living God; When shall I come and appear before God? In some parts of the world the dry season becomes a matter of life and death.  Even with hungry crocodiles […]

Psalm 22:1, 24

January 21, 2013

22:1 My God, my God, why have You forsaken me? Far from my deliverance are the words of my groaning.  Jesus cried out this question from the cross (Matthew 27:46).  Some people differ in opinion over why He said this and whether or not He was truly forsaken.  I believe He said it because at […]
