Psalm 11 is about trusting God, even when we are surrounded by the wicked.
The Psalmist starts off by saying that he puts his trust in God. He then asks how one can ask him to flee to a mountain? This is a powerful question. If we trust in God, how can we flee when things […]
Psalm 10 is cry out to God to judge the wicked.
The Psalmist starts off by crying out to God, asking Him why He is hiding, and why He isn’t doing anything in times of trouble. He goes on to describe the wicked.
The wicked blesses those who God hates. The wicked’s ways are always grievous. He […]
Last week I started a new Devotional Study, in which I’ll be reading through all the great stories in the Bible. I’ve noticed that when I study passages for the second or third time, I sometimes catch something important that I missed in previous readings. (Plus I love learning all the important lessons these stories […]
One of my favorite stories in the Bible is the story of Job. Although it’s sad to see the pain inflicted upon him by Satan, his unchanging faith in God is truly a sight to behold, and something each and every one of us should strive for.
Job 1:1-5 starts by giving us some background on […]
And God spake all these words, saying,
I am the LORD thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.
Thou shalt have no other gods before me.
The first thing to come to my mind when I read this was, wow, How awesome is our God? His […]
Today, I’m finishing up looking at Psalm 9. I’m picking up in Verse 11.
The Psalmist says to sing praises to the Lord, and to declare His doings among the people. Declare His doings means to tell people what God has done. Do we do this? Do we tell people God has done in our lives? […]
Psalm 9 is another Psalm of praise to God. The Psalmist details how he will praise God with his WHOLE heart. He doesn’t say with part of his heart, or with most of his heart, he says that he praises God with his WHOLE heart; with all of his heart.
Too often, we worship God with […]
I was reading through Exodus today and came across the section where God presents Moses with the Ten Commandments. I’ve read this passage many times, but something interesting caught my eye. The NIV Bible I was using (Which I use the most) showed the Sixth Commandment as “You shall not murder”. This confused me, because […]
In John 14:15, Jesus says, “If ye love me, keep my commandments.” One of these commandments is “Thou shalt not kill.” ~Exodus 20:13
We go through all of the commandments, and we tend to skip this one. Why would we kill anyone? We’re Christians right? Everyone refers to terrorists as murderers, which I don’t deny, but […]
Psalm 8 starts off with a heartfelt praise to God. The Psalmist says that the name of the Lord is Majestic, and goes on to say that “Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings hast thou ordained strength”.
This is where we get the saying “Out of the mouth of babes”. What the Psalmist is […]
