358 – Psalm 28 – Blessed be Yahweh

Today I’ll be quoting from the Legacy Standard Bible specifically because they transliterate the name Yahweh instead of substituting it with the word LORD. In studying Psalm twenty-eight, I find it fascinating that David begins his prayer asking Yahweh to help him, but, in contrast, at the end of the nine verses he asks Yahweh to help Yahweh’s “anointed”, “His people”, and “His inheritance”. It would seem as David was talking to God his confidence in Him grew and his perspective changed. It was no longer about David, but about Yahweh and His people...

Psalm 28:1 - 3 (NKJV)       28:title       A Psalm of David.            1       To You I will cry, O [LORD] my Rock: Do not be silent to me,     Lest, if You are silent to me,     I become like those who go down to the pit.            2       Hear the voice of my supplications     When I cry to You,     When I lift up my hands toward Your holy sanctuary.            3       Do not take me away with the wicked     And with the workers of iniquity,     Who speak peace ...

356 – Psalm 27 – Verse to remember

Last time we took a look at how David processed through his circumstances in prayer and fellowship with YHWH. We paid particular attention to how prayer adjusted David's perspective of his situation. David seems to have settled his confidence in his redeemer because he moves from asking YHWH for help, to asking YHWH to “teach” him His (YHWH's) ways. Psalm 27:10–14 (NKJV)  11 Teach me Your way, O [YHWH], And lead me in a smooth path, because of my enemies. 12 Do not deliver me to the will of my adversaries; For false witnesses have risen against ...

355 – Psalm 27 – The Process

Psalm 27:6-7 (NKJV)            6       And now my head shall be lifted up above my enemies all around me;     Therefore I will offer sacrifices of joy in His tabernacle;     I will sing, yes, I will sing praises to [YHWH].            7       Hear, O [YHWH], when I cry with my voice!     Have mercy also upon me, and answer me. You’ll notice verse six begins with the word “and", signaling us to look back to the previous verse to see what is being connected. The last sentence in verse five says, “He shall set ...

354 – Psalm 27 – Confidence

(Missles over temple mount) Too many modern-day preachers believe something needs to be done to make the word of God relevant for today. Ironically, it’s those very preachers who have never learned to study the Holy Scriptures and therefore don’t preach them. Out of their pulpits come nice “community friendly”  messages with a pinch of Bible verses here and there to flavor what they want to say. Look at what the Apostle Paul told Timothy. 2 Timothy 4:2-5 (NKJV)            2       Preach the word! Be ready in season and out of season. ...

353 – Psalm 27 – My Salvation

Last time we looked at what it meant that YHWH was David’s light. This time I’d like to start by looking at what it means that YHWH is “my salvation”. For the believer in Jesus Christ, if we assume YHWH is Jesus, we may jump to the conclusion that David is referring to eternal salvation, but would we be correct?   Psalm 27:1 (NKJV)     1       [YHWH] is my light and my salvation;     Whom shall I fear?     [YHWH] is the strength of my life;     Of whom shall I be afraid?   Let’s start by looking up the ...

352 – Psalm 27 – My Light

Psalm 27:1-2 (NKJV)      27:title       A Psalm of David.            1       [YHWH] is my light and my salvation;     Whom shall I fear?     [YHWH] is the strength of my life;     Of whom shall I be afraid?   Let’s spend a few minutes considering Psalm twenty-seven. We know from the title that King David wrote it. We also know that this psalm was added to the official collection during David’s lifetime by its number. Not every psalm written by David was added to the “Book” while he was alive. Psalms ...

351 – Psalm 26 – We dont talk like that

Even though I know better, I still fall into the trap of reading right over the top of words in the Bible when I should be paying attention to them. Even though we don’t talk like that, because it’s the Bible I just keep racing along. Kudos to me! I’ve read the word, but never mind that I didn’t understand what I read. I probably got “something” out of it anyway. Hopefully, I’m the only one in the world who has ever had an encounter like that, but I suspect otherwise. Oddly enough, there is a verse in the Psalm we are studying I could easily read over, ...

350 – Psalm 26 – The Bridge

Unless I miscounted, David uses God’s proper name YHWH six times in the twelve verses of Psalm twenty-six. He knows God personally, prays to him often, and shares those prayers with the people of his earthly domain in the form of songs. In this powerful little prayer put to music and forever recorded in YHWH’s Holy word David asks Him for seven very specific things. Vindicate me (vs. 1) Examine me (vs. 2) Prove me (vs. 2) Try my mind and heart (vs. 2) Do not gather my soul with sinners (vs. 9) Redeem me (vs. 11) Be merciful to me (vs. ...
