Confronting Evil
Psalm 139:19–22

Many people are bothered by the problem of evil. They say, “If God is a loving and good God, why does He allow evil?” David did not ignore this problem, nor did he give in to it. Instead, he made a decision and took his stand with God. Only our God can permit evil and be able to overrule it to accomplish His purposes. As David confronted the problem of evil in the world, he did so in stages.

Stage one: He evaluated (v. 22). David looked at the wicked, violent, blasphemous, deceitful, and rebellious crowd. He showed courage and honesty in taking his stand against them. When we start asking ourselves, Is it safe? or, Is it popular? we have moved away from biblical ethics and integrity.

Stage two: He grieved (v. 21). God the Father grieves (Gen. 6:6), God the Son grieves (Mark 3:5), and God the Holy Spirit grieves (Eph. 4:30) over sin. We also ought to grieve over sin. When Nehemiah heard that the walls of Jerusalem were destroyed, he sat and wept (Neh. 1:4). Today, we need people who will sit down long enough to weep over sin.

Stage three: He hated (vv. 21–22). We could use a little more holy anger today. Christians sometimes are too bland, too complacent, and too comfortable. Love and hate are not contradictory when dealing with sin. Jesus showed both compassion toward sinners and hatred of sin.

Stage four: He decided (v. 19). David decided to separate himself from evil (Ps. 119:115). We need to stand among sinners as the salt of the earth and the light of the world, but we need to have contact without contamination.

Stage five: He trusted (v. 19). We must leave vengeance with God; He will punish the wicked (Rom. 12:19). Our job is to give ourselves to Him and do the work He wants us to do.

If you fail to make a decision, the world will make it for you. Take your stand with God and use David’s experience as a guide for confronting evil.

The Cost of Idolatry
Psalm 135:13–21

Some things in the Bible are so important that God repeats them. The last verses in Psalm 135 parallel Psalm 115. These two psalms describe the dead idols of other nations. The psalmist says, “The idols of the nations are silver and gold, the work of men’s hands. They have mouths, but they do not speak; eyes they have, but they do not see; they have ears, but they do not hear; nor is there any breath in their mouths. Those who make them are like them; so is everyone who trusts in them” (vv. 15–18). Here we see the folly of idolatry—worshiping silver and gold, the work of men’s hands. But that’s going on today, isn’t it? Many people worship the works of their hands.

How do you know what you are worshiping? The thing you work for, sacrifice for and live for is your god. For some people, it’s money. For others, it’s possessions. With still others, it’s ambition or people. The psalmist shows us how foolish this is. Idols have mouths, yet they can’t make promises. But our God speaks to us, and He gives us promises in His Word. Idols have eyes, but they cannot see. They offer no protection. But “the eyes of the Lord are on the righteous” (Ps. 34:15). God’s eyes are watching us every moment of the day. He never goes to sleep. He cares for His children. Idols have ears, but they cannot hear your prayers.

If you talk to an idol, you are talking to yourself. But God’s ears are open to our cries. He says, “Call to Me, and I will answer you” (Jer. 33:3). The saddest thing about idolatry is that we become like the god we worship. “Those who make them are like them; so is everyone who trusts in them” (v. 18). But if we worship the true and living God, we become like Him. We are transformed into the image of Jesus Christ.

Be careful what you worship. Satan wants you to substitute many idols for the Lord. Place no gods before Him; worship Him only. Today, get rid of any idols that might prevent your worship of the Lord.

It’s important to feed your soul a proper diet. Do you feed and nourish on God’s Word? The Bible is sweet to those who love it, learn it, and live it.

A House for David
Psalm 132:11–18

God did not permit King David to build Him a house. Instead, He did just the opposite; He built a house for David. God said, “David, I am not going to build you a physical house but a house made of people. There will always be one of your descendants on the throne of Israel.”

He also said some things about David’s children. “If your sons will keep My covenant and My testimony which I shall teach them, their sons also shall sit upon your throne forevermore. For the Lord has chosen Zion; He has desired it for His dwelling place” (vv. 12–13).
There is an application here for God’s children. He chose us in Christ before the foundation of the world (Eph. 1:4). Jesus said, “You did not choose Me, but I chose you” (John 15:16).

What a high and holy privilege! We were chosen to be God’s children. “Beloved, now we are children of God” (1 John 3:2). What a wonderful calling! Paul tells us we also reign in life (Rom. 5:17). God wants us to reign as kings, even as David’s children did. We reign through obedience and holiness.

God wants us to reign in righteousness for His glory. Because we are His children through faith in Jesus Christ, we are seated with Christ in the heavenlies. Therefore, let’s be clothed with salvation. Let’s shout for joy!

Someday believers will reign with Christ in His kingdom. But today He wants you to reign in life. Do you reign in life with Christ? As you obey the Word of God and keep your heart pure, you become a king. Don’t live beneath your spiritual station in life. Be a king! Be a Queen!

Plows of Pain
Psalm 129:1–8

Verse 3 is a vivid description of personal suffering: “The plowers plowed on my back; they made their furrows long.” Many other pictures of personal suffering are found in the Word of God: going through the storm, going through the furnace, going through a battle and carrying a burden. Why would the psalmist use plowing as a picture of personal suffering?

For one thing, he felt as if people were treating him like dirt. They were saying, “You’re just like a dirty field, and we’re going to plow right up this field, and we don’t care how you feel.” If we live for Jesus, we can expect people to treat us the way they treated Him. They treated Him like dirt.

The central truth in this picture is that plowing is preparation for a harvest. When people are treating you like dirt, when the plows of criticism and accusation dig in your back, remember: God is preparing you for a harvest.

What kind of a harvest? That depends on the kind of seed you plant. If you plant seeds of revenge and hatred and malice, saying, “I’ll get even with them someday,” the harvest will be bitter. But if you plant the seeds of the Word of God, letting love and peace and patience reign in your heart, you can say with the psalmist that the Lord is righteous—He will resolve this problem. Then the harvest will be one of blessing, as in verse 8: “The blessing of the Lord be upon you; we bless you in the name of the Lord!”

If you want a harvest in your life, you must plow, plant, and water. When people treat you like dirt, when the trials of life go right through your life like a plow, get ready for the harvest. God has a harvest of blessing for you today, so remember to plant the right seed.

In order to plant the right seed; you must become the right soil. It’s important to feed your soul a proper diet. Do you feed and nourish on God’s Word? The Bible is sweet to those who love it, learn it, and live it.

Like a Mountain
Psalm 125:1–5

As the mountains surround Jerusalem, so the Lord surrounds His people from this time forth and forever” (v. 2). We don’t have to know much about geography to understand what the psalmist is saying. It’s a declaration we can believe and put to work in our own lives today. God is compared to many things in the Bible. For example, “our God is a consuming fire” (Heb. 12:29). Or, “God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble” (Ps. 46:1). Here the psalmist declares God is like the mountains surrounding Jerusalem. That was the most special city to God and the Jewish people, and it still is. And when the psalmist looked at the mountains surrounding the city, he said, “That’s the way God is.”

How is God like a mountain? First, a mountain has stability. When the psalmist was a little boy, he saw the mountains surrounding Jerusalem. When he became a young man, those mountains were still there. When he grew older, the mountains were there, and the mountains are still there today. Likewise with God. He is stable, dependable. He doesn’t change. God is the same yesterday, today, and forever (Heb. 13:8).

Second, a mountain offers security. God surrounds and guards us. He is like Mount Zion to us. Verse 1 says, “Those who trust in the Lord are like Mount Zion.” In other words, God can make you to be like a mountain also—stable and secure because He is your Refuge and Strength.

Therefore, we should trust Him. Those who trust in the Lord have stability and security. They have all they ever will need. “Do good, O Lord, to those who are good, and to those who are upright in their hearts” (v. 4).

The next time you need a refuge, remember that God has a special way of caring for His people. The strength and security God gives His people is solid and unchanging. Trust Him.

Choosing Your Friends
Psalm 119:57–64

All of us enjoy having friends. We need them. The psalmist says that the Word of God pertains to our friendships. “I am a companion of all who fear You, and of those who keep Your precepts” (v. 63). He let the Word of God guide him in his choice of friends and associates. We have many acquaintances but few real friends. A friend is someone you don’t have to talk to all the time. You can be together for long periods without saying a word, yet your hearts are united. At the other extreme, a friend is someone you aren’t afraid to talk to. You can unburden your heart, and you are a better person for having been with him.

God is our best friend. Abraham was called the friend of God, and we can be His friends also. Jesus said to His disciples, “I’m not going to call you slaves. I’m going to call you friends” (John 15:15). Friends talk to each other. And if we talk to God and let Him speak to us through His Word, we will be a companion of those who fear Him and keep His commandments.

One of the most important tests of friendship is what my friend’s attitude is toward the Bible. Does he accept it? Does he receive the Word of God as truth? Does he fear God with a reverential awe and love for Him?

If I am in a right relationship to God through His Word, I will be in a right relationship with people. My friends will be God’s friends. The Bible calls this separation—not isolation, but separation. It’s the blessed by-product of a life lived in Scriptures.

Are you listening to the right voices? Jesus said; "My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me; and I give eternal life to them, and they will never perish; and no one will sn**ch them out of My hand (John 10:27-28). “We are saved by faith through the death of the Son of God. Are you saved? If not, hear His voice and trust in Him.

Choose your friends carefully. Do they fear God? Do they receive the Word of God in their hearts? Use your friends’ attitudes toward the Bible as an important test of friendship. Relationships are investments of our time and other resources. Make them count for eternity.

Sweeter than Honey
Psalm 119:97–104

How well I remember the day my doctor looked at me and said, “Pastor, you will not eat any more sweets.” I’ve learned to do without desserts, but there’s one sweet I cannot do without—God’s Word: “How sweet are Your words to my taste, sweeter than honey to my mouth!” (v. 103).

Is the Word of God like honey or medicine to you? The way some people treat it, you’d think it is castor oil. True, there are times when we need the healing medicine of the Scripture. But the Bible is much more than medicine. It also is honey. Having an appetite for God’s Word is one sign that a person is truly born again, for the Bible is food for the soul. Job said, “I have treasured the words of His mouth more than my necessary food” (Job 23:12). Jeremiah said, “Your words were found, and I ate them, and Your word was to me the joy and rejoicing of my heart” (Jer. 15:16). Jesus said, “Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God” (Matt. 4:4). And Peter urges us to “desire the pure milk of the word” (1 Peter 2:2).

When people are sick, their appetites change—in fact, they often lose their appetites completely. Likewise, sin in our lives robs our spiritual appetite, and we lose our desire for the Word. May we always have an appetite for the sweetness of the Word of God, even when we have to read things that convict us. That first bite of Scripture may taste sour sometimes, but it will turn sweet.
It’s important to feed your soul a proper diet. Do you feed and nourish on God’s Word? The Bible is sweet to those who love it, learn it, and live it.

Rejoicing in Each Day
Psalm 118:19–29

This is the day the Lord has made; we will rejoice and be glad in it” (v. 24). When you are having one of those difficult days—a day when the storm is blowing and the battle is raging, when the burdens are heavy, when your heart is broken and your tears are flowing, when it feels like everybody is turned against you, including your heavenly Father—that’s the time to heed this verse by faith.

The psalmist was going through battles and difficulties, yet he was able to say, “If God put this day together, I’m going to rejoice and be glad in it. Even though I may not see the blessing now, eventually by faith I’ll be able to say, ‘It all worked together for good.’ So I’ll say it now.”

Jews sing this psalm at Passover. Jesus also sang this song before He was crucified. Can you imagine saying on your way to Calvary, “This is the day which the Lord has made; I will rejoice and be glad in it”? That’s another way of saying, “Not my will, but Your will be done.” If Jesus sang this song, we should sing it also.

Perhaps your day is full of overwhelming burdens or sorrows. Jesus also suffered days like that. Accept the day God has given you and acknowledge that He is in charge. Anticipate what God is going to do for you today; rejoice and be glad in it. You may not understand His purposes now, but one day you will.
