The Psalms cannot imagine a world where the people of God do not see themselves engaged in conflict of some sort.
God is our refuge and protector even in the fiercest trial.
If you feel powerless today, or that the purposes of God are somehow being thwarted in the world, then take heart. God is in control of human history.
The cross becomes the place where God’s perfect justice meets God’s perfect mercy.
The Lord Jesus Christ stands as the fulfillment of every hope and aspiration of Psalm 72.
As Christians, we celebrate the ascended and exalted Christ who now sits at the right hand of the Father. Praise God for our risen and exalted king!
The final test of our faith is the answer to the question: “Where (or in whom) do we put our trust?”
The great miracle of the gospel is that, in Christ, not only are we declared righteous, but we are empowered to live righteously.
It is the resurrected Christ and the empty tomb, which alone, washes us all of our “foolishness” and sets our feet firmly with Christ in the way of the righteous.
The important lesson from Psalm 13 is to never forget in your times of darkness what God has revealed in the times of light.
