“Give the king your justice, O God, and your righteousness to the royal son! May he judge your people with righteousness, and your poor with justice! Let the mountains bear prosperity for the people, and the hills, in righteousness! May he defend the cause of the poor of the people, give deliverance to the children of the needy,     and crush the oppressor!

May they fear you while the sun endures, and as long as the moon, throughout all generations! May

“Your righteousness, O God,     reaches the high heavens. You who have done great things,     O God, who is like you? You who have made me see many troubles and calamities     will revive me again; from the depths of the earth     you will bring me up again. You will increase my greatness     and comfort me again.

I will also praise you with the harp     for your faithfulness, O my God; I will sing praises to you with the lyre,     O Holy One of Israel. My lips will shout f

“But I will hope continually and will praise you yet more and more.  My mouth will tell of your righteous acts, of your deeds of salvation all the day, for their number is past my knowledge.  With the mighty deeds of the Lord God I will come; I will remind them of your righteousness, yours alone.”  Psalm 71:14-16

The power of fire is amazing.  This truth has been on full display recently as the 2022 forest fire season in the Western States has gotten off to a blazing start.

“Be to me a rock of refuge, to which I may continually come; you have given the command to save me, for you are my rock and my fortress.” Psalm 71:3

”For you, O Lord, are my hope, my trust, O Lord, from my youth.”  Psalm 71:5

Humanity has had a long and interesting history with rocks.  We polish them, collect them, carve them, climb them, tell stories about them, enshrine them, build with them; the list goes on and on.  There are a few rocks throughout history that have rise

“May all who seek you rejoice and be glad in you!  May those who love your salvation say evermore, “God is great!”  Psalm 70:4

Don’t you hate losing things?  I do.   It happens to me quite often.  In all honesty, though, 99% of the things I can’t find are not lost, they are simply misplaced and I can’t remember where I left them.  For me, it’s usually a tool. I go buy another and what usually happens after that is I find the original and then place the new one right beside

“I will praise the name of God with a song; I will magnify him with thanksgiving.  This will please the Lord more than an ox or a bull with horns and hoofs.  When the humble see it they will be glad; you who seek God, let your hearts revive.   For the Lord hears the needy and does not despise his own people who are prisoners.”  Psalm 69:30-33

When I lived in Africa I used to love walking through the street markets to see what people were peddling.  I’ve scored some real gem

“When I wept and humbled my soul with fasting, it became my reproach.  When I made sackcloth my clothing, I became a byword for them.  I am the talk of those who sit in the gate, and the drunkards make songs about me.  But as for me, my prayer is to you, O Lord.  At an acceptable time, O God, in the abundance of your steadfast love answer me in your saving faithfulness.”  Psalm 69:10-13

People are one of the most, if not the most, popular topics of songs throughout history.

1 Save me, O God! For the waters have come up to my neck. 

2  I sink in deep mire, where there is no foothold;  I have come into deep waters, and the flood sweeps over me. 

3  I am weary with my crying out; my throat is parched.  My eyes grow dim with waiting for my God. 

4  More in number than the hairs of my head are those who hate me without cause;  mighty are those who would destroy me, those who attack me with lies. What I did not steal 

must I now restore?

27 There is Benjamin, the least of them, in the lead, the princes of Judah in their throng, 

the princes of Zebulun, the princes of Naphtali. 

 28  Summon your power, O God, the power, O God, by which you have worked for us. 

 29  Because of your temple at Jerusalem kings shall bear gifts to you. 

 30  Rebuke the beasts that dwell among the reeds, the herd of bulls with the calves of the peoples.  Trample underfoot those who lust after tribute; scatter the peoples who delight

15 O mountain of God, mountain of Bashan; O many-peaked mountain, mountain of Bashan! 

 16  Why do you look with hatred, O many-peaked mountain, at the mount that God desired for his abode, yes, where the Lord will dwell forever? 

 17  The chariots of God are twice ten thousand, thousands upon thousands; the Lord is among them; Sinai is now in the sanctuary. 

 18  You ascended on high, leading a host of captives in your train and receiving gifts among men,  even among the reb

1 God shall arise, his enemies shall be scattered; and those who hate him shall flee before him! 

 2  As smoke is driven away, so you shall drive them away; as wax melts before fire, 

so the wicked shall perish before God! 

 3  But the righteous shall be glad; they shall exult before God; they shall be jubilant with joy! 

 4  Sing to God, sing praises to his name; lift up a song to him who rides through the deserts;  his name is the Lord; exult before him!

“…truly God has listened…” (Psalm 66:19a) What a statement of faith, knowing that God hears our prayers when we turn from the error of trying to do things our own way, to acknowledging that He alone knows best. If you have ever been lost, and been given directions, or got your bearings from a map, you know what it is like to suddenly know where you went the wrong way, where you are now, and where you need to go.

In our spiritual lives the same is true. Perhaps it is facing

Oftentimes, we look to God in times of trouble and we negotiate. “God, if You will only do this, then I promise, I will do that-behave better, read my Bible more, maybe give something away…” We see the psalmist make good on such a vow today, and really, our whole life before God is just such a vow. We pledged our lives, everything we have, and are, to His service the day we were baptized. But God is in no need of anything we have to offer. He told his people, “What to me i

There have been efforts made to “explain” the miracles of God that are recorded in the scriptures. While some convincing arguments can be made as to how things we see happing in scripture can occur, the exercise fails to see the point. Even in something like the parting of the Red Sea, which can, in theory, be linked to a volcanic eruption in the Mediterranean, it is still God who orchestrated these events. Whether God used a volcano or simply His divine authority to part
