You Have Taught Me From My Youth

“O God, You have taught me from my youth; And to this day I declare Your wondrous works. Now also when I am old and gray headed, O God, do not forsake me, until I declare Your strength to this generation, Your power to everyone who is to come.” Psalm 71:17‭-‬18 David penned this psalm…

Being Taught God’s Law

“Teach me, O Lord, the way of Your statutes, and I shall keep it to the end. Give me understanding, and I shall keep Your law; Indeed, I shall observe it with my whole heart. Make me walk in the path of Your commandments, for I delight in it. Incline my heart to Your testimonies, and not to covetousness. Turn away my eyes…

God is Eternal

“Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever You had formed the earth and the world, even from everlasting to everlasting, You are God.” Psalm 90:2 I love looking at landscape paintings and pictures. I likewise really enjoy those of mountains. Looking at mountains, especially up close in person, reminds you of their massive stature. That stature…

A Beautiful Ensemble, Part 2

Psalm 138:1-2 “A Psalm of David. I will praise You with my whole heart; before the gods I will sing praises to You. I will worship toward Your holy temple, and praise Your name For Your lovingkindness and Your truth; For You have magnified Your word above all Your name.” In a devotion I wrote in March…

Importance of Family Worship

“For He established a testimony in Jacob, and appointed a law in Israel, which He commanded our fathers, that they should make them known to their children; That the generation to come might know them, the children who would be born, that they may arise and declare them to their children, that they may set their hope in God, and not forget the works…

Fearless in the Valleys

“Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; For You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.” – Psalm 23:4 When we journey through valleys, the darker parts are often the hardest to walk through. The discomforts of suffering and trials can…

In God I Have Put My Trust

“Whenever I am afraid, I will trust in You. In God (I will praise His word), In God I have put my trust; I will not fear. What can flesh do to me?” Psalm 56:3-4 There is daily temptation, in times like these, to be fearful. The rising threat of something we cannot see, but…

A Beautiful Ensemble

Psalm 95:1 “Oh come, let us sing to the Lord! Let us shout joyfully to the rock of our salvation.” God has designed the human voice to be able to make such a lovely sound in song. Now, it’s true for many that listening to people sing is great. Our comfort level with the sound coming out of our…

Unless the Lord Builds His Church

“Unless the Lord builds the house, they labor in vain who build it; Unless the Lord guards the city, the watchman stays awake in vain.” Psalm 127:1 This psalm is often referred to as the “Builder’s Psalm”. Here, a picture is painted through illustrations of building and guarding – pictures of vanity and blessing, pride and dependence. Our eyes are taken off…

God’s Word: Sweeter Than Honey

“How sweet are Your words to my taste, sweeter than honey to my mouth!” Psalm 119:103 Last week, we considered the great value of God’s Word being a lamp to our feet and a light to our path. The Bible is a wonderful guide that shines in the darkness and illumines our steps. Another wonderful…
