Responding to Psalm 5

Psalm 5 (Here is the complete study on Psalm 5: Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4, Part 5.) I’ve been doing a lot of thinking about what I wrote yesterday on Psalm 5:11-12.  The verse that has kept popping into my mind is, “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever,” […]

The Only Thing We Have to Fear is Fear Itself…and God – Psalm 5:7-8

My Buddy or My King? – Psalm 5:1-3

Psalm 5:1-3 Every morning when Grace, my two year-old daughter, wakes up, she cries out my name.  “Daddy, Daddy, Daddyyyyyyyyyy,” is usually the equivalent of my alarm clock.  When I enter her room, sometimes there are tears in her eyes as she reaches out to me in sorrow and fear, realizing that she’s alone in […]
