Psalm 84  Some things get us excited. Last Saturday, I was fishing with a friend. I cast my line, and immediately the line began moving away. Fish!! And it became clear it was a good-sized fish. I felt a rush of excitement! I like to use light tackle, so I expected some fun – if […]

Please Listen!


Psalm 81 I was driving towards Bentonville, Arkansas by myself. As I often do, I had music playing loudly. It was dark outside, so I also had my maps program running to remind me where to turn off for I-40 east. Soon, I drove by a QT station. now that may not sound like much, but there are […]

Has God Forgotten to Be Gracious?


Psalm 77  Seems like a harsh title, doesn’t it? But that is exactly what the Psalmist asks!! Chances are we’ve all thought such a question. We probably wouldn’t say it out loud, but haven’t we all been in circumstances when we wondered where God was, why He wasn’t answering? But then the Psalm gives an […]

If God Be For Us…


Psalm 68:1-10  As someone once said, if you are on God’s team, it doesn’t matter how many players, how big the players, how strong the players on the opposing team. You’re on the winning team! David reminds us of that as he demonstrates what Paul said in Romans 8:31, “If God is for us, who can […]

How Do We Seek After God?


Psalm 63  David said, “You are my God. I shall seek you earnestly.” That brings two obvious questions to my mind: (1) Can I echo those words – honestly? and (2) How can I seek after Him? The first is a personal question; the second is a practical one. Many in our world claim they […]

My Grace Is Sufficient


2 Corinthians 12:9 “If it weren’t for bad luck, I’d have no luck at all.” Of course, “luck” or “karma” are not the driving force of life. And neither can they carry us through difficult times. Paul faced a burden, asked God to remove it, and the answer was, “No, but my grace is sufficient.” […]

There’s No Fool Like…


Psalm 53  Simply follow the news and you have to wonder, have we lost our minds? Look at the New York abortion bill as but one example. “The fool says in his heart, there is no God” seems to be on full display! Mankind is clearly “broken.” Is there hope?

Old Testament Grace?


Psalm 51  Did God change His mind? Were people once saved by keeping the law but now are saved by grace? Isn’t this the “Grace Age”? No, God did not change His mind! He has always been a gracious God. We see it throughout the Old Testament. And David counts on it in this Psalm, Join us this […]

Help in the Nick of Time!


Psalm 46  In the movie “2012,” the Yellowstone volcano blows, destroying the park. Jack Cusack, a hero in the movie, is aboard a small plane trying to outrun the every-growing crevasse splitting the runway behind the plane as it speeds towards takeoff. Miraculously, they survive, due to some spectacular flying skills of the pilot. Have you […]

Life Is Short


Psalm 39  Fifty-two years ago, the Beatles released the song “When I’m Sixty-Four” on their classic album, “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band.” I bought that album when it first came out. And as I mentioned in October, I had my “Beatle’s Birthday.” I am 64. Sigh. Do I feel like it? No. Do I […]
