The Radiant Life

The last Psalm of this second series of five is the 34th and again we find that it links with the one that went before. This previous Psalm has been calling people to worship, to praise Him and the last two verses say, “For our heart shall rejoice in him, because we have trusted in his holy name. Let thy mercy, O Lord, be upon us, according as we hope in thee.” And immediately the soul speaks in the next Psalm, “I will bless the Lord at all times: his praise shall continually be in my mouth.” Notice, this 34th … Read More >

Out Of The Cave

Psalm 77: “I cried unto God with my voice, even unto God with my voice; and He gave ear unto me…” This psalm tells the story of David and how he got out of the cave. As Professor James G. Murphy of Belfast says in his commentary, “The psalm was most probably composed on some critical emergency in the eventful life of David. The hiding of David in the cave of Adullam has been suggested by different writers.” It is the devil’s peculiar joy to get us into a hole, and it is God’s particular delight to get us out … Read More >

Prayers And Praises

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.” What … Read More >

Considering The Poor

We have already noticed that the book of Psalms is really divided into five separate books. We come now to consider the last of this particular collection. We noticed that the first book of the Psalms is linked very intimately with the first book of the Pentateuch. It has to do with God as the Creator and Upholder of all things and as the Deliverer of His people, as the One who took us up in His electing love and having made us His own undertakes to carry us on in spite of all circumstances until at last we behold … Read More >

When We Are Forgiven

Whether we were brought up in a strict home or a lenient home, we all have a conscience. And there’s nothing  we can do about the stain of sin upon our conscience. Time will never obliterate our sin. We need God to do that for us. The story of David is well-known; he committed adultery with Bathsheba. She became pregnant, and then he had her husband, Uriah, killed. For a while, David thought his sin was covered, that he had done what he needed to do to get out of the mess and salvage his reputation. But the cover-up didn’t … Read More >

Vanquishing The Enemy

So David prevailed over the Philistine with a sling and with a stone, and smote the Philistine and slew him; but there was no sword in the hand of David.”—1 Samuel 17:50 The Old Testament is not only a book of history which reveals to us the great seed plots of God’s plan of redemption for the human race. It is that. But it is also a book which unfolds something of the great truths of the New Testament, and puts them before us in picture language, that we may apply them to our hearts and lives today. One … Read More >

Fire From Heaven

The text you will find in 1 Chronicles 21:26, “And the Lord answered him from heaven by fire upon the altar of the burnt-offering.” The Lord answered David from heaven by fire upon the altar of the burnt-offering! That is the answer of God to the cry of every heart. It is the uttermost that God in heaven can do for ransomed souls on Earth—fire from heaven. This is the immediate and dynamic response of God for the uttermost yielding of our hearts and lives—fire from heaven. The Pressure Let me ask you to observe, in this particular incident in … Read More >

The Power Of His Resurrection

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 … Read More >
