    Psalms Devotional: Psalm 4

    Psalms Devotional: Psalm 4

    In today's devotional we ask how it is possible to be angry and yet not sin.

    Today's text is:

    Psalm 4

    To the choirmaster: with stringed instruments. A Psalm of David.

    4 Answer me when I call, O God of my righteousness!

    You have given me relief when I was in distress.

    Be gracious to me and hear my prayer!

    2 O men, how long shall my honor be turned into shame?

    How long will you love vain words and seek after lies? Selah

    3 But know that the Lord has set apart the godly for himself;

    the Lord hears when I call to him.

    4 Be angry and do not sin;

    ponder in your own heart on your bed, and be silent. Selah

    5 Offer right sacrifices,

    and put your trust in the Lord.

    6 There are many who say, “Who will show us some good?

    Lift up the light of your face upon us, O Lord!”

    7 You have put more joy in my heart

    than they have when their grain and wine abound.

    8 In peace I will both lie down and sleep;

    for you alone, O Lord, make me dwell in safety.

    Psalms Devotionals: Psalm 3

    Psalms Devotionals: Psalm 3

    This morning we are looking at Psalm 3.

    This morning's text is:

    Psalm 3

    A psalm of David. When he fled from his son Absalom.

    1 Lord, how many are my foes!

    How many rise up against me!

    2 Many are saying of me,

    “God will not deliver him.”

    3 But you, Lord, are a shield around me,

    my glory, the One who lifts my head high.

    4 I call out to the Lord,

    and he answers me from his holy mountain.

    5 I lie down and sleep;

    I wake again, because the Lord sustains me.

    6 I will not fear though tens of thousands

    assail me on every side.

    7 Arise, Lord!

    Deliver me, my God!

    Strike all my enemies on the jaw;

    break the teeth of the wicked.

    8 From the Lord comes deliverance.

    May your blessing be on your people.

    Psalms Devotionals: Psalm 2

    Psalms Devotionals: Psalm 2

    In today's devotional we see that God is not shaken by the raging and anger of the world. What He says will be accomplished and He cannot be shaken. 

    Today's text is:

    Psalm 2

    1 Why do the nations conspire

    and the peoples plot in vain?

    2 The kings of the earth rise up

    and the rulers band together

    against the Lord and against his anointed, saying,

    3 “Let us break their chains

    and throw off their shackles.”

    4 The One enthroned in heaven laughs;

    the Lord scoffs at them.

    5 He rebukes them in his anger

    and terrifies them in his wrath, saying,

    6 “I have installed my king

    on Zion, my holy mountain.”

    7 I will proclaim the Lord’s decree:

    He said to me, “You are my son;

    today I have become your father.

    8 Ask me,

    and I will make the nations your inheritance,

    the ends of the earth your possession.

    9 You will break them with a rod of iron;

    you will dash them to pieces like pottery.”

    10 Therefore, you kings, be wise;

    be warned, you rulers of the earth.

    11 Serve the Lord with fear

    and celebrate his rule with trembling.

    12 Kiss his son, or he will be angry

    and your way will lead to your destruction,

    for his wrath can flare up in a moment.

    Blessed are all who take refuge in him.

    Psalms Devotionals: Psalm 1

    Psalms Devotionals: Psalm 1

    In todays devotional we see that God has intended blessing for each one of us. However our view of what blessing is and how it is attained is the big elephant in the room!

    Todays' text is:

    Psalm 1

    1 Blessed is the one

    who does not walk in step with the wicked

    or stand in the way that sinners take

    or sit in the company of mockers,

    2 but whose delight is in the law of the Lord,

    and who meditates on his law day and night.

    3 That person is like a tree planted by streams of water,

    which yields its fruit in season

    and whose leaf does not wither—

    whatever they do prospers.

    4 Not so the wicked!

    They are like chaff

    that the wind blows away.

    5 Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment,

    nor sinners in the assembly of the righteous.

    6 For the Lord watches over the way of the righteous,

    but the way of the wicked leads to destruction.

    Galatians Devotional Part 17

    Galatians Devotional Part 17

    Our final devotional in our Galatians series and today Paul takes the pen from his scribe and writes with his own hand. He asks the question, "Whose trophy are you?" and "How and for whom do you want to live out the rest of your life?"

    Today's text is:

    Galatians 6:11-18

    11 See what large letters I use as I write to you with my own hand!

    12 Those who want to impress people by means of the flesh are trying to compel you to be circumcised. The only reason they do this is to avoid being persecuted for the cross of Christ. 13 Not even those who are circumcised keep the law, yet they want you to be circumcised that they may boast about your circumcision in the flesh. 14 May I never boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, through which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world. 15 Neither circumcision nor uncircumcision means anything; what counts is the new creation. 16 Peace and mercy to all who follow this rule—to the Israel of God.

    17 From now on, let no one cause me trouble, for I bear on my body the marks of Jesus.

    18 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit, brothers and sisters. Amen.

    Galatians Devotional Part 16

    Galatians Devotional Part 16

    In todays devotional, Paul describes the church community if it was drenched with grace as Jesus intended! Wow, just wow!

    Today's text is:

    Galatians 6:1-10

    6 Brothers and sisters, if someone is caught in a sin, you who live by the Spirit should restore that person gently. But watch yourselves, or you also may be tempted. 2 Carry each other’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ. 3 If anyone thinks they are something when they are not, they deceive themselves. 4 Each one should test their own actions. Then they can take pride in themselves alone, without comparing themselves to someone else, 5 for each one should carry their own load. 6 Nevertheless, the one who receives instruction in the word should share all good things with their instructor.

    7 Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows. 8 Whoever sows to please their flesh, from the flesh will reap destruction; whoever sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life. 9 Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. 10 Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers.
