Psalm 144 Blessed be the Lord!

Psalm 144

It’s a cold and rainy Tuesday here in my world. I hope some of y’all out there are enjoying some sunshine! But, while the weather doesn’t have much to offer me, the Word always does!

The Lord meant a great deal to David. The Lord was his:

• rock (v 1)
• steadfast love (v 2)
• fortress (v 2)
• stronghold (v 2)
• deliverer (v 2)
• shield (v 2)
• refuge (v 2)
• rescue (v 7)
• provider (v 12-14)
• Lord (v 15)

Who is God is your life today? Praise him for it!

I will:

• remember (v 5)

• speak to me (v 8 )
• direct me (v 8 )
• deliver me (v 9)

Psalm 142 What David Knew

Psalm 142

David knew hardship. He knew loneliness. He knew pain.

How David Felt:

• crying out (v 1)
• pleading for mercy (v 1)
• complaining (v 2)
• troubled (v 2)
• faint in spirit (v 3)
• path was difficult (v 3)
• lonely (v 4)
• brought low (v 6)

But David also knew some other things. He knew deliverance. He knew steadfast love. He knew faithfulness.

So, in the midst of darkness, he could say (v 7):

• The Lord will deal bountifully with me.
• The Lord will deliver me.
• Others will be blessed by my deliverance.
• This will end in me praising the name of the Lord.

Psalm 140 Three Promises

Psalm 140

David addressed two types of harm in this psalm.

👉 verbal attacks (v 3)
👉 physical attacks (v 4)

And he asked for protection from both. The enemy had violent hands and a sharp tongue. Just another reminder that words cause wounds.

We also have three beautiful promises.

  1. The Lord will maintain the cause of the afflicted (v 12).
  2. The Lord will execute justice for the needy (v 12).
  3. The upright shall dwell in the presence of the Lord (v 13).
