Psalm 31 – True Refuge During The Distresses of Life

“Pull me out of the net that they have laid privily for me: for thou art my strength.” — Psalm 31:4 Our spiritual foes are of the serpent’s brood, and seek to ensnare us by subtlety. The prayer before us supposes the possibility of the believer being caught like a bird. So deftly does the […]

Psalm 30 – The God Who Turns Mourning Into Dancing

So, brethren! remember that the richest vintages are grown on the rough slopes of the volcano, and lovely flowers blow at the glacier’s edge; and all our troubles, big and little, may be converted into gladnesses if we accept them as God meant them. Only they must be so accepted if they are to be […]

Psalm 29 – The Call to Glorify God Because of His Strength That He Uses to Bless His People

The omnipotence of God in nature inspires the devout with the spirit of worship. Inspires the common mind with fear. The scientific mind with inquiry. Inflames the imagination of the poetic mind. But fills the devout mind with the spirit of worship of the great invisible Creator. “Give unto the Lord the honour [or, ‘glory’] […]

Psalm 28 – Delighting in the God who Hears and Answers Our Prayers

If God could be deaf and dumb to the supplications of His servant, there could be neither comfort nor hope for him. And if God should turn away from him, his ruin would be certain. But then the servant of God would share the fate of the wicked. This however is impossible, so long as […]

Psalm 27 – Waiting Courageously on the Lord

One thing I know, one thing I seek, one thing I need, and at the very end of the book, it’s as though he says, “Oh yes, here’s one more thing—one thing I’m going to do. I’m going to be strong and wait on the Lord: I am still confident of this: I will see […]

Psalm 26 – What God Requires, He Provides

If you stand on the Rock of Ages, my dear brothers and sisters, you stand on a Rock which never can reel beneath you, and from which no power, either earthly or infernal, can ever tear you! If you are in the hands of Christ, you know what He says—“No one is able to pluck […]

Psalm 25 – Trusting and Remembering the Faithfulness of God

Are you obsessed by something? You will probably say, “No, by nothing,” but all of us are obsessed by something— usually by ourselves, or, if we are Christians, by our own experience of the Christian life.
