The concept of justice is one that everyone subscribes to – at least, when it turns out for their benefit. You want to be able to go to the store and weigh-out a pound of produce and be charged accordingly – no more and no less. When you go to the gas station you want […]

We’re told in the New Testament that we are supposed to “count it all joy” when we fall into various trials. We’re commanded to not think it a strange thing when we encounter trials in our life. Indeed, even our Lord Jesus Christ was tried and tested and tempted during his time on this earth. […]

I think that any of us who is a true believer in the Lord Jesus Christ has also known times of being outside of God’s will. Not just in one decision or choice that we’ve made – but in an intentional move that we’ve made that would impact us for a while. There are people […]

Psalm 55 22 Sermon / 23 Meaning

But eventually we need to come to the point that David does in verses 22 and 23 where he encourages both himself and others to trust the Lord. 22 {Cast/Throw} {thy burden/your cares} upon the LORD, and he shall sustain thee: he {shall never suffer/will never allow/will never let} the {righteous/godly} {to be moved/to be […]

Psalm 55 20-21 Meaning / Commentary

And you might think that expressing confidence and faith in the Lord will just kind of settle you permanently. But sometimes it will actually throw you back into convulsions as you recall your problem and want to elaborate on it to the Lord, as David does in the rest of verse 19 and verses 20 […]

Now, David next contrasts the kind of treatment he deserves versus what this betrayer and his buddies deserve in verses 15-17. 15 {Let/May} death {seize upon/come deceitfully upon/destroy/take by surprise} {them/my enemy}, {and let them/may they} go down {quick/alive} {into/to} {hell/Sheol/the grave}: for {wickedness/evil} is in their {dwellings/dwelling}, {and among them/in their midst}. 16 {As […]

Psalm 55 13 Commentary / 14 Meaning

And then something really interesting happens in this psalm. And it’s where we finally come to understand that David was betrayed by one of his close friends. And what’s very interesting is that we see David do something that’s fairly unusual in the book of Psalms. Remember that Psalms are really just prayers. And when […]

Psalm 55 9 Meaning

We all know in our heart of hearts that fleeing isn’t really the ultimate solution to any of our problems. It might be necessary to keep you alive! But it doesn’t solve any deep issues. And that’s why when we’re betrayed by others and especially when this results in us wanting to run away, we […]

Psalm 55 6 Meaning

Now, when you are just overwhelmed by a trial in your life – when you are just hemmed-in on every side and you are so miserable and you just see no way out, what is a really common response? You can’t humanly fix this problem. What is your tendency? I think that for a lot […]
