    Key Verses: Psalm 51:10-12

    But God will redeem my soul from the power of the grave,
    For He shall receive me.

    The first two verses of today’s reading (Psalm 48) are sung, probably not with the same tune as the sons of Korah, but still in worship of the one and only “LORD” Who is “GREATLY TO BE PRAI...

    Episode 4

    Key Verse: Psalm 44:1-2a
    We have heard with our ears, O God,
    Our fathers have told us,
    The deeds You did in their days,
    In days of old:
    You drove out the nations with Your hand,
    But them You planted…

    “The good old days” may not have been so good after all! We have a tendency to exaggerate how ...

    Episode 5

    Key Verse: Psalm 41:9
    Even my own familiar friend in whom I trusted,
    Who ate my bread,
    Has lifted up his heel against me.

    In yesterday’s Psalms, that big word “I” was repeated over and over. Today the words that stand out are “my” and “me.” At least 35 times we are directed inward to think abo...

    Episode 6

    Key Verse: Psalm 39:1

    Episode 8

    I will bless the Lord at all times;
    His praise shall continually be in my mouth.

    The words, “the Lord,” occur 26 times in these two Psalms. There’s a saying about “the Lord”… that “He’s either Lord of all or not at all!” There should be no half-way measures in our faith! The Apostle Paul wrote...

    It’s hard to imagine the despair that David tried to express in Psalm 30. He was running for his life from his father-in-law, King Saul, whom David woul...

    Episode 12

    Key Verse: Psalm 23:1
    The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.

    Key Verses: Psalm 8:1a (and 8:9)
    O Lord, our Lord, How excellent is Your name in all the earth.”

    The shepherd king, David, sang the words of Psalm 7 “to the Lord.” Imagine singing of persecution, tearing apart like a lion, being trampled upon, etc. Somehow when we sing in our pain, it makes i...
