On Doubt, Self-Examination, and Plot Advancement – Psalm 7:3-5

Psalm 7:3-5 (For the first installment of the study on Psalm 7, click here.)  [1]  How often are you absolutely confident about the result of your actions (and the motives behind those actions)?  How sure are you that you can trust yourself in any given situation?

Misery Loves Company – Psalm 6:8-10

Psalm 6:8-10 (For the previous three studies on Psalm 6, click here, here, and here.) [1] Perhaps you’ve heard the phrase, “misery loves company.”  I think that phrase applies to our passage today, in a sort of not-in-the-way-it’s-normally-used sense.  David has been wallowing in misery throughout the duration of this Psalm.  And now we find out […]

Marooned on a Desert Island – Psalm 6:4-5

Psalm 6:4-5 (For the first study on Psalm 6, click here.) Often, in preaching and in teaching, I have stated that the most quoted verse in the Bible isn’t John 3:16, but rather it is, “God helps those who help themselves.”  The only problem is this verse is not in the Bible.  Go ahead, look for […]

The Sweet Embrace – Psalm 2:10-12

Psalm 2:10-12 (For the first three installments on this study of Psalm 2, click here, here, and here) First Impressions The conclusion of this psalm begins with a “therefore”, just as in Psalm 1.  Whereas the “therefore” in Psalm 1 served as a summary statement, the “therefore” in Psalm 2 prescribes the appropriate response to the […]

God Responds to His Enemies – Psalm 2:4-6

Psalm 2:4-6 (For the first installment on this psalm, click here) First Impressions David moves from the planned opposition of God’s enemies to God’s personal response to all of their plans.  His response should be encouraging to believers everywhere and utterly terrifying to His enemies. What does God do in response to the plans of those […]

Psalm 1:1-2

Psalm 1:1-2  First Impressions  We have a very distinct contrast in the first two verses of this psalm between who isn’t a blessed man and who is.  Luther makes the clarification here, and I believe it is wise to point out, that “man” is a generic reference to a member of the human race.  The […]
