Have Mercy on Me

David sinned, and thought he’d gotten away with it for nearly a year; then, Nathan appeared and, through God, convicted him of that sin. This psalm is David’s prayer for forgiveness, and demonstrates the heart of repentance we need to have. If we truly repent, we can trust that God’s forgiveness is real, and help us turn ourselves to Him.

Psalm 51     Bro. Danny Nance     March 18th, 2018

Joy in the Morning

In this Psalm, David praises the Lord for healing him. David had sinned and God had brought His judgment on him, but God intervened and brought David back from the brink of death. David celebrates that God’s anger is short-lived, but His grace endures forever; and, we know that “joy in the morning” is a certainty, not an empty cliché.

No Fear

This world can be a scary place, and there are legitimate struggles that we will face. Trust in the Lord is essential for victory over those fears.

Psalm 27:1-6, 14     Bro. Danny Nance     March 4th, 2018

Show Me Your Ways

We say that we want to know what the Lord’s will is; however, He has shown us what He wants us to do. To truly experience the blessings of the Lord, it is not enough to be shown His ways - we must follow them as well.

Psalm 25:4-10     Bro. Danny Nance     February 25th, 2018

The Shepherd of Our Souls

Psalm 23 is one of the most familiar passages of Scripture in the Bible. These familiar words remind us that God has given us His heart, provides us with what we need, protects us in the darkest times, and will one day welcome us home.

Chariots and Horses

We will all find ourselves, at one point or another, in a period of trouble. When this happens, we know that God will be with us; that He will supply what when need, when we need it; and that He will prove trustworthy, far beyond what earthly targets of our trust could ever do.

Psalm 20     Bro. Danny Nance     February 11th, 2018

God Is Speaking!

People today are living their lives, in large part, distracted by technology to a point where they miss obvious things around them. Today’s psalm reminds us that we need to hear what God is telling us, both through His creation and through His Word. When we listen, it should motivate our loving obedience to Him.

Psalm 19     Bro. Danny Nance     February 4th, 2018

Playing the Fool

The word “fool”, even in our day, is a rather harsh word; we will all end up playing the fool, though. Psalm 14 describes the ungodly fool, and the doom that awaits him. However, if we live godly lives, Paul lets us know that the world will consider us fools; our salvation is diametrically opposed to what the world values.

Psalm 14, 1 Corinthians 1:26-31     Bro. Danny Nance     January 28th, 2018

What Is Man?

This psalm is actually a hymn; David is praising the Lord for His goodness and majesty. In comparison to God, humanity is very small. Yet, we are the pinnacle of God’s creation, and should treat one another that way.

Psalm 8     Bro. Danny Nance     January 21st, 2018

The Dividing Line

The Book of Psalms begins with a song that underscores the themes throughout the entire book. The contrast between the righteous life and the unrighteous life is stark, and it calls us to ensure that we are on the right side of that line - and do our best to help others as well.
