The Power Of His Resurrection

By Dr. Harry A. Ironside

An Address on Psalm 18

This is another of the Psalms of David which undoubtedly sets before us in a very wonderful way some personal experiences which he passed through during those dark and difficult years when he was hunted by King Saul like a partridge on the mountains, when at times he despaired of his own life, and became so discouraged that he felt there was no help for him; but eventually in his greatest distress he looked up and realized that God was for him. But while this Psalm, like so many others, sets forth experiences that David …

Psalms 13 To 15

By Dr. Harry A. Ironside

In Psalm 13 we have the tried believer crying to God for deliverance and yet trusting in His overruling providence in spite of all the difficult circumstances of the way. Four times in the first two verses we get the cry, “How long?” “How long with thou forget me, O Lord? for ever? How long wilt thou hid thy face from me? How long shall I take counsel in my soul, having sorrow in my heart daily? How long shall mine enemy be exalted over me?” This is the heart cry, not only of Christian people during this …

Prayers And Praises

By Dr. Harry A. Ironside

In the 28th Psalm we have God’s remnant people celebrating known deliverance. They had been in difficulty, in trial, and God had intervened and now they are praising Him for it and crying to Him that nothing might arise to hide His face, to make them insensible to His voice, that sin might not come in to mar their fellowship and communion with Him.

Notice the opening verse, “Unto thee will I cry, O Lord my rock: be not silent to me: lest, if thou be silent to me, I become like them that go down into the pit.” …

The Potter And The Clay

By Dr. Herbert Lockyer

A Sermon Preached by Dr. Herbert Lockyer at The Moody Church in 1939

In the book of the prophet Jeremiah, chapter 18, we have the incomparable record of the potter and the clay. “The word which came to Jeremiah from the Lord, saying, Arise, and go down to the potter’s house, and there I will cause thee to hear my words. Then I went down to the potter’s house, and, behold, he wrought a work on the wheels. And the vessel that he made of clay was marred in the hand of the potter; so he made it again another …

The Shepherd Psalms

By Dr. Harry A. Ironside

It has often been pointed out that our blessed Lord is referred to in the New Testament as the Shepherd under three different aspects. In John 10 He says, “I am the good Shepherd.” In Hebrews 13 He is called “the Chief Shepherd” as “brought again from the dead,” and in 1 Peter 5, looking on to His second coming when the under shepherds will give an account to Him, He is spoken of as “the Great Shepherd.” Some one long ago suggested that in Psalm 22 we have the Good Shepherd giving His life for the …

A Call To Worship

By Dr. Harry A. Ironside

In the 32nd Psalm, David celebrates the blessedness of the man whose transgression is forgiven and whose sin is atoningly covered. We have now in the 33rd Psalm that which should always follow the knowledge of redemption, the heart going out to God in worship and adoration. You remember what the Lord Jesus Christ said to the woman at the well, “God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth. For the Father seeketh such to worship him” (John 4:24-25). Have you ever thought much of that? The Father is seeking …

Interceding With God

By Dr. Harry A. Ironside

We have noticed that in the early part of this book a great many of these Psalms have to do primarily with David’s personal experiences. This particular Psalm evidently was written either during the time that he was fleeing from King Saul and his army or when he was hiding from the armies of his own son, Absalom. It probably has reference to the former case. One can understand how David would pen these words perhaps some night that he was restless, unable to sleep, on the alert for he knew the enemy was pursuing him. He could not know …

The Testimony Of Creation And The Word Of God

By Dr. Harry A. Ironside

In this nineteenth Psalm, the Spirit of God celebrates two things,—draws our attention to two testimonies. First, in verses 1 to 6 we have the testimony to the majesty and power of God in creation. Then from verses 7 to 11 we have the testimony of the Word of God setting forth the divine purpose and counsels, making known the mind of God in respect to man. In verses 12 to 14 we have that exercise of soul which should result from a thoughtful consideration of these two testimonies.

There is no conflict whatever between the testimony of nature …
