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 snatch 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.

Four Voices that You Hear
Psalm 2:1–12

The world is getting noisier. So many voices vie for our attention. The result is that many people are getting the wrong instructions. It is important that we have discernment in a noisy world filled with propaganda. We need the truth.

We need to distinguish the four voices of Psalm 2. The first is the voice of defiance—the nations of the world (vv. 1–3). It is amazing that the nations would defy almighty God. He has provided for them (Acts 14:17) and determined their histories (Acts 17:26). Why do the nations rebel? They seek freedom without God. P. T. Forsythe said, “The purpose of life is not to find your freedom. The purpose of life is to find your Master.” Authority demands submission (Matt. 11:29).

The world is a mess morally, intellectually, socially, politically, economically and ecologically because it has defied God. Man is made in God’s image. The irony is that when man rebels against God, he rebels against himself.

Second, we have the voice of derision—the voice of God the Father (vv. 4–6). While there is tumult on earth, there is tranquility in heaven. God laughs because the kingdom is secure; the King has been established. Jesus is God’s King. Though the nations rebel, we don’t need to worry, for the King is already enthroned in heaven.

A third voice we hear in the world is the voice of declaration—God the Son (vv. 7–9). He runs the universe by decree, not by democracy. He knows everything, is everywhere, and can do anything. God’s decrees will succeed. Puny, foolish men with their godless living will not eradicate or hinder His decrees.
God decrees that Jesus Christ is His Son. Jesus is God, and He is King by nature, by conquest, and by His resurrection. He is reigning today, and we can reign in life through Him (Rom. 5:17).
God also decrees that He will break the rebellious nations with “a rod of iron” (v. 9). When His scepter of righteousness goes forth in judgment, the nations will cry out, not in repentance but in rebellion. God already has given the nations to His Son (Matt. 4:8–10).

The fourth voice is the voice of decision—the Holy Spirit (vv. 10–12). He wants us to learn—to be wise, to be instructed. Many depend on philosophy, psychology, and history. These disciplines are helpful, but Christians must rely first and foremost on the Spirit of God to reveal truth.

The Holy Spirit wants us to be willing to serve. We serve the Lord, not sin. There is joy with our fear because God is our Father. In searching for freedom, the rebellious crowd practices anarchy, for freedom without authority is anarchy. We are made in the image of God. To rebel against Him is to rebel against our own nature.
The Holy Spirit also wants us to be reconciled. God is reconciled to us through Christ (Acts 16:31). Jesus “kissed” us in His birth and death. Today He is the Lamb, but someday He will come as the Lion to judge. God is holy and will not allow sin and rebellion to go on forever.

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 snatch 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.

Meeting Life’s Demands
Psalm 118:10–18

The Lord is my strength and song, and He has become my salvation” (v. 14). This also is found in Exodus 15:2 and Isaiah 12:2. The Israelites sang these words when they were delivered from Egypt, as they saw their enemy drowned in the sea. And Isaiah 12 promises that Israel will sing this song in the future when God restores her and establishes His kingdom. We, too, can rejoice for what these words mean for us today.

God is our Strength. That takes care of the demands of life. Where do you look to find strength? Your experience? Your health? Your money? Your job? All these things could vanish. Only the strength of the Lord can meet the demands of life. “Those who wait on the Lord shall renew their strength” (Isa. 40:31).

He is our Song. That takes care of the dullness of life. Many people have to go through boring, tedious experiences. Perhaps your job is not as exciting as you’d like it to be. Perhaps you are a shut-in, and you can’t get out and do and see what others have the privilege of doing and seeing. The Lord will give you joy.

He is our Salvation. That takes care of the dangers of life. He delivers us and is always at our side. “The right hand of the Lord is exalted; the right hand of the Lord does valiantly” (v. 16). That right hand is available to us today.

Believers may sing this song of praise, for God takes care of the demands, the dullness, and the dangers of life. He is your Strength, your Song, and your Salvation.

Remember that God is ever available to deliver you from the difficult experiences of life.
