Morning Light – July 25th, 2016:  Contrasts of Faithfulness and Disobedience

Morning Light – July 25th, 2016 Today: [Psalm 78] Contrasts of Faithfulness and Disobedience. Psalm 78 is the 2nd longest psalm after Psalm 119. It recounts the history of Israel from Moses to king David. Over and again we see God acting supernaturally to deliver and to save His people. The people in response struggle to maintain faithfulness. They spiral throughout the centuries in an endless cycle of sinning and being forgiven. God has something more for us than this pattern of failure as this 12th psalm of Asaph demonstrates. [Psa 78:1-72 KJV] 1 [[Maschil of Asaph.]] Give ear, O … (click link or title to continue)

Morning Light – July 22nd, 2016:  In the Day of Trouble: Cry Out!

Morning Light – July 22nd, 2016 Today: [Psalm 77] In the Day of Trouble: Cry Out! In this chapter Asaph cries out to God in the day of trouble. He demonstrates that God will hear and respond to the heartfelt cry. Many times we feel as though it is too late. The immediacy of our crisis drains away our faith making us think it is too late to pray. Asaph shows us in this psalm that God will never reject us no matter how late we come into the situation to call out to Him for deliverance. [Psa 77:1-20 KJV] … (click link or title to continue)

Morning Light – July 21st, 2016:  The Nearness of the Name of God

Morning Light – July 21st, 2016 Today: [Psalm 75-76] The Nearness of the Name of God. In chapters 75-76 of Psalms the writer is again Asaph. He writes a song not of individual lament but rather one of corporate praise. The focus is upon the name of the Lord and the fact that God’s name is near to us. The understanding of God’s nearness speaks of distance and timing. God is near to us in answer to our prayers and near to us in that He is not a far off God. The magnification of the warrior nature of God … (click link or title to continue)

Morning Light – July 20th, 2016:  Does God’s Anger Smoke Against Us?

Morning Light – July 20th, 2016 Today: [Psalm 74] Does God’s Anger Smoke Against Us? In this chapter Asaph speaks prophetically of a time when Jerusalem is burned by fire and the temple is totally destroyed. His language suggests that he thinks that God has allowed this to happen. He goes on to cry out for God’s mercy for the people. He mentions several times that he intends to put God in remembrance of His promise to His people. Is it disrespectful to “remind God”? In this psalm we learn how to pray when all hope is gone and the … (click link or title to continue)

Morning Light – July 19th, 2016:  Abandoning Corrupt Worship

Morning Light – July 19th, 2016 Today: [Psalm 73] Abandoning Corrupt Worship. In this chapter we find a man named Asaph as the author and not king David. Asaph was a worship leader from David’s time spanning into Solomon’s reign itself. In this psalm Asaph grieves over the corruption of the pure and simple worship of God. He confesses that the excesses of others almost cause his own feet to slip. He observes the end of those who have strayed in their persons yet claim to be representatives of God’s presence in worship. He concludes that outside of God’s presence … (click link or title to continue)

Morning Light – July 18th, 2016:  The Death Bed Prayer of David

Morning Light – July 18th, 2016 Today: [Psalm 72] The Death Bed Prayer of David. David’s death bed prayer is not about himself. He does not pray for courage to endure the end of his life. He does not pray that he will see the Lord afterward. It seems that all of those issues are settled for David. Instead he prays for his successor, for the line of kings that comes after him and for the fate of the nation that he has led for 40 years. In this pray we see how we also should pray for our leaders … (click link or title to continue)

He is facing difficult problems with the diminished capacities of advanced years. He cries out to God that He might hasten to his defense. There are times in your life that your strength will seem weak and you don’t know that you will be able to stand. David’s example is that of humble petition and abiding faith in the love of God … (click link or title to continue)

Morning Light – July 14th, 2016:  Enduring the Dregs of Bitter Experience

Morning Light – July 14th, 2016 Today: [Psalm 69] Enduring the Dregs of Bitter Experience. In this verse David echoes the deeps of God in a Messianic psalm. David is enduring a profound trial and pours out his complaint to God. The Father never despises an honest heart in prayer. There is no need to be pretentious or to pretend that we aren’t suffering. God will hear you cry and as David will turn your captivity as reflected in today’s lovely psalm. [Psa 69:1-36 KJV] 1 [[To the chief Musician upon Shoshannim, [A Psalm] of David.]] Save me, O God; … (click link or title to continue)
