The Preacher's Special
Daily In The Psalms

DEAR FOLKS,

I am looking forward to a great day this Sunday. I hope to see you in your place and ready to receive what the Lord has for you. I also appreciate the kind words about the devotions in Psalms. It is my prayer that they encourage you as they do me.

THE APPEAL TO GOD

Hear me when I call, O God of my righteousness: thou hast enlarged me when I was in distress; have mercy upon me, and hear my prayer. Psalms 4:1

In the midst of all his troubles and trials, the Psalmist cries out to God. This is his first appeal, too many times we cry out to others instead of God. Human help will fail but God’s help is tried and proven. Before all other human considerations, we need to learn to cry out to God. Someone said, “Take your burden to the Lord.” I have never been able to figure out why some will suffer loss because they hold their troubles back from God. The more you take to Him, the less you will have to add to the burdens of others.

Man is unjust and this world is filled with injustice. David recognized God’s perfect character and justice. He confessed that all his own righteousness was actually God’s. Many try to wrap themselves in their own virtue, only to find that it falls short. The Christian has something far beyond his own virtue; it is the infinite righteousness of God.

David had a good memory of God’s faithfulness. He remembered all God’s past mercies. Those memories were filled with bright days of deliverance that caused the darkness of the present to flee.

Now the Psalmist says, “have mercy upon me, and hear my prayer.” It makes no difference how just we may feel or how right our cause may be; there is much in our lives that needs to be forgiven. We must call on and rely on the mercy of God. There is never a time when we ought to demand justice!

How wonderful it is to see the windows of Heaven open in the hour of our darkest need. The Christian life is a warfare and we need to be more acquainted with Heaven than with the things of this world. When we know God, we may be pressed, but never defeated. The storms of this life may break all human communication, but nothing can interrupt our communication with God. The sooner we cry to Him, the sooner we will receive the answer. This appeal of reserved for the saved and is controlled by the will and holiness of God. By grace we ask for help and He gives that help as He wills. We must live in a right relationship with Him and trust that he does all things well.

Daily in the Psalms Part 11

We had another great day yesterday. It was highlighted by the sweet service last night. We are seeing God do some great things in our midst. Please continue to pray for our Church as we still have some needs. Summer is coming and our offerings seem to be dropping a little. Pray that God would meet all our needs and that our members would be faithful.

Our devotions are about appealing to God. Would you spend time today appealing to Him on behalf of our Church?

THE EXPECTATION OF APPEALING TO GOD

O ye sons of men, how long will ye turn my glory into shame? how long will ye love vanity, and seek after leasing? Selah. But know that the LORD hath set apart him that is godly for himself: the LORD will hear when I call unto him. Stand in awe, and sin not: commune with your own heart upon your bed, and be still. Selah. Offer the sacrifices of righteousness, and put your trust in the LORD. Psalms 4:2-5

David knows and trusts God and he sees the efforts of his enemies as vain and fruitless. Because God had chosen him, he was not rejected. Because he had called on God, he was protected. He knew he belonged to God and his enemies were not just fighting him; they were fighting God. That is the same trust that the Christian has today. We belong to God and Christ lives in us. Those that set themselves against us are setting themselves against our God. This also applies to the Church. God has already spoken that the gates of Hell shall not prevail against it. Jesus loves the Church and gave Himself for it and those that fight against it are contending with God. Such rebellion is vain.

The reference to the “Godly” here is simply one that loves God. It does not mean perfection of life, but rather the perfection of the heart. Even in the harshest battle, there is comfort for those that love God. He sets them apart and draws them to Himself.

God describes those that love Him as:
Precious
A Peculiar Treasure
His delight
A royal Diadem
The excellent of the earth
Fine gold
The glory of creation
Sapphire and crystal, jewels

By faith, David rises to great heights. He no longer sees himself as troubled and afflicted, he sees his enemies as the ones that are in danger and he gives them wise counsel:

They Need To Consider Their Opposition: While they are lying in their beds, in the stillness of the night, they need to take thought of God. When we do not reflect on the awesome greatness of God, we are in great danger.

Their Repentance Must Be Sincere: Any insincere repentance will only result in provoking God to anger. It is the duty of every Christian and the Church as a whole to give this solemn warning to every sinner, “Hear God’s Word and put away your rebellion against Him.”

Daily in the Psalms part 3

In a world where there is very little real goodness, we can trust in our Good God. When we rest in His goodness, we will be content, and blessed.

THE ANTICIPATION OF GOD’S GOODNESS

There be many that say, Who will shew us any good? LORD, lift thou up the light of thy countenance upon us. Thou hast put gladness in my heart, more than in the time that their corn and their wine increased. I will both lay me down in peace, and sleep: for thou, LORD, only makest me dwell in safety. Psalms 4:6-8

Who will shew us any good?

Within all men is a great void and discontent, they want something that they never seem to be able to obtain – GOODNESS! They are seeking the cure for the evil that seems to be overwhelming them. When a sinful man asks this question, it is not a question for which he expects an answer; it is a question that expresses his utter hopelessness. Most people today have lost hope in ever experiencing anything truly good. Satisfaction is an unattainable goal for most.

But there is an answer! It is the smile of God: “LORD, lift thou up the light of thy countenance upon us”

It Is A Spiritual Answer - The world is making a futile effort to find goodness in itself. Most people spend all of their life in a fruitless search that can only be found in God. In failure and bitterness they cry out over and over, “Who will show me anything good?” They run in vain after everything that promises an answer.

It Is A Sufficient Answer - Nothing can do what God can do! Wonderful things have come from people who do not know God; we are enjoying many benefits of medicine and technology from the minds of those that know nothing of the goodness of God.

But that can never answer the most piercing questions of man and satisfy the deep longing of his soul.
It is God alone that:
Sets the birds to sing
Makes the coolness of the rain and the warmth of the sun
That gives food its taste
That puts love and hope in the heart
That puts the twinkle in the eye
And that gives us every other good thing.
The Bible says that EVERY good gift comes from above.

God is enough without creation, but creation is not anything without Him. If every material good were taken from us, God could still come into our soul and fill it with indescribable delight. The joy of the Lord is infinitely greater that anything this world has to offer. There is as much difference in the goodness of God and the goodness of the world as there is in the difference in a royal banquet that we actually enjoy and one painted on a billboard.

It Is A fruitful Answer

I will both lay me down in peace, and sleep: for thou, LORD, only makest me dwell in safety. Psalms 4:8

While the storms of this life rage and those without God cry in fear, God giveth His beloved sleep. We know something that others cannot know; we are safe in Him!

So Glad To Be So Saved
