Psalms: Lament

Ultimately, the purpose of a psalm of lament is to help the worshipper – that’s YOU – move from spiritual pain to spiritual joy. In psalm 69, the author begins with “save me, O God” and ends with “The Lord hears the needy…let the heavens and earth praise Him.” That’s what God wants for you when you’re in pain. That’s what I want for you when you’re in pain. That’s what the psalmists want for you when you’re in pain…a movement from suffering to joy.

Psalms: Praise

I read from a commentator on Psalm 113 this week these words: “Such a faith (as that of the psalmist in Psalm 113) makes all the difference in life.” Wouldn’t you agree? If, no matter what situation you find yourself in, no matter how bad it gets, you KNOW deep down, that the almighty and all-powerful creator of the heavens and the earth is AWARE of your situation and will work to resolve it, to bring you from pain to blessing….if you KNOW that, doesn’t it make all the difference?

The Psalms: A Choice

The psalms, they provide great clues, great advice, for how to live a life of blessing. That kind of life, it’s a choice. It’s there for the taking. All you have to do is follow the way of God. Follow the way of God, and God will watch over you, and prosperity – however God defines it – will be yours. Follow any OTHER way and, well, watch out.
