"Heart of Man" is the title of this KJV video devotion from Psalm 62, verses 3 and 4. No man, apart from the miraculous intervention of Christ can truly be good. We should not be surprised by the things we see in this world; as the influence of the Gospel is removed, man will revert back to his natural self. David understood that; he saw all men left to themselves as a bowing wall or a tottering fence.
"My Soul Waits" is the title of this KJV video devotional from Psalm 62, verses 1 and 2. Therein lies our greatest problem, does it not? Does our soul wait? Does our soul wait for God? Waiting is certainly not one of our strong points, yet, as Christians, we often find ourselves in positions of needing to do just that--wait!
"Heritage" is the name of this KJV video devotion from Psalm 61, verses 5 through 8. Can you really imagine it? The God of the Universe, the One who spoke this world into existence, desires to have a personal relationship with every single one of His children. He is not content to just have our lip service; He demands our life, our soul, and our all!
"Shelter of His Wings" is the title of this KJV video devotion from Psalm 61, verses 3 and 4. Use the shelter of God for prayer, for comfort, for times of grief, for thanksgiving, for praise, and whatever other circumstances you are placed in. God is always there; the shelter is always open for you!
"The Rock" is the title of this KJV video devotion from Psalm 61, verses 1 and 2. As David cried out to God in prayer, he reminded himself that no matter where he was--even unto the ends of the earth, God, His Rock, was always there. No matter where he was, he could always look up to God, his Rock, and find strength and help in the time of need.
"Through God" is the name of this KJV video devotion from Psalm 60, verses 9 through 12. What does God have to do in our lives to get us to the point that we realize that we do not have the strength to live this life on our own? Nothing that the world offers will help, for vain is the help of man. It sounds so simple, does it not? Why, then, is that such a hard lesson for us to learn?
"God Has Spoken" is the title of this KJV video devotions from Psalm 60, verses 6 through 8. To what is David referring in Psalm 60, verses 6 through 8, and what does that have to do with us today? David is recounting God's promises to the nation, Israel, and just as David had supreme confidence in God's promises, so can we equally trust in the promises God's has made to us, His people, as well.
"Turn to Us Again" is the name of this KJV video devotion from Psalm 60, verses 1 through 5. Whether God gets tired of hearing us ask for the same things again and again or not, we know, from the Psalms of David, that God was faithful to David over and over. David knew in his heart of hearts that his only hope was in the Lord. Though God might get tired of hearing the same pleas, David continued to cast himself upon the mercy of the Lord.
"But I" is the name of this KJV video devotion from Psalm 59, verses 14 through 17. How do we find the inner resources to follow Christ when we seem to be surrounded by one catastrophe after another? When it seems as though we are the only one left who desires to faithfully follow the Lord, how can we bravely assert, "But I? But I will follow the Lord; but I will remain faithful to Him."
"God Rules" is the title of this KJV video devotion from Psalm 59, verses 11 through 13. David does not want his own people to forget that God rules, not only in Jacob, but to the ends of the earth. Is that true in our day as well? Does God rule over the earth? Many people, world wide confess to be Christians, but not all of them would agree that God rules over the earth?
"God Is My Defense" is the title of this KJV video devotion from Psalm 59, verses 1 through 10. As in times past when David was on the run from King Saul, he penned the words to what became part of the Psalms in our Bible. David was frustrated and angry, but never, even during such times as this, did David forget God.
"God Judges the Earth" is the title of this KJV video devotion from Psalm 58, verses 6 through 11. While it is true that we are to love our enemies and pray for those who despitefully use us, it is also true that we should not be naive! When we observe life around us, personally and world-wide, we should rejoice when we see the enemies of God defeated. We must never forget that God judges the earth, and His judgment is righteous and true!
"Judge Rightly" is the title of this KJV video devotion from Psalm 58, verses 1 through 5. Sadly, in our day, a person who is accused of wrong-doing, though innocent, may not necessarily receive a fair trial. Equally disturbing, it is not enough to prove that a person is guilty; those who are truly guilty are often released on mere technicalities. Should we, then, be too surprised at the words of David in Psalm 58?
"Fixed on God" is the title of this KJV video devotion from Psalm 57, verses 7 through 11. What was so unique about the life of David? Why was David known as a man after God's own heart? David, whether as a young shepherd boy, or an old and dying king, never forgot his First Love! David's heart was fixed on God!
"Glory of God" is the title of this KJV video devotion from Psalm 57, verses 4 through 6. How confident are we in God? Do we shy away from speaking with people about the Lord because we fear their reaction? Do we love the praise of men so much that we are willing to forgo the praise of God? If our persecutors surrounded our house, would we collapse in fear, or would we remember the glory of God?
"His Mercy and Truth" is the title of this KJV video devotion from Psalm 57, verses 1 through 3. Where, but the Lord, can we find such mercy today? Over 2000 years later, we still find His mercy and truth as we rest in the shadow of His wings. Just as David had complete confidence in God, we, too, can immerse ourselves in His mercy and truth.
"Vow of God" is the title of this KJV video devotion from Psalm 56, verses 12 and 13. The vows of God are upon all of His children! What an amazing thought. Have you ever thought about God making a vow to you, as His child? God has made a binding vow to love and care for each and every one of His children. How can we do less than render all of our thankfulness and praise unto Him?
"God Is for Me" is the title of this KJV video devotion from Psalm 56, verses 9 through 11. He did not say, "This I think." No, he said, "This I know." How confident are we in our God? Can we say with David, "This I know; for God is for me."? David then goes on in the next two verses, "In God will I praise his word: in the LORD will I praise his word. In God have I put my trust: I will not be afraid what man can do unto me."
"Tears in a Bottle" is the title of this KJV video devotion from Psalm 56, verses 5 through 8. Did God hear the complaints of David? Yes! He knew that, because God is righteous and faithful, his enemies will not escape by their iniquity. God not only deals with our enemies, but God is compassionate toward His people. He even puts their tears in a bottle. Imagine that! When we get to heaven, how big will our bottle of tears be?
"Afraid" is the title of this KJV video devotion from Psalm 56, verses 1 through 4. Weary! The Psalmist was weary of life, to the point it seems as though his enemies would swallow him up. His pity party did not last long, however, when he acknowledged the Most High God. "What time I am afraid, I will trust in thee."
"Promises" is the title of this KJV video devotion from Psalm 55, verses 22 and 23. Psalm 55 ends with two very distinct promises of God: one to the righteous, and one to the wicked. No matter what happens in life, these two promises will always be upheld, for in the end, it is God who determines justice for the righteous and justice for the wicked.
"Heart of War" is the title of this KJV video devotion from Psalm 55, verses 20 and 21. David again returns to ponder his friend who had broken his covenant with him and displayed a heart of war. As we think of David's words, it is helpful for us to understand that God does not want Christians to be naive. While it is true that we are to love our enemies and pray for those who despitefully use us (Matthew 5:44), we must understand the true nature of the heart of the wicked.
"Evening, Morning, and Noon" is the title of this KJV video devotion from Psalm 55, verses 16 through 19. "As for me!" We should not underestimate the importance of these three words. David was overcome with grief over a close, personal friend who had deserted him, becoming one of his worst enemies. Where was God in all of this? Did David charge God foolishly? No! No matter what the circumstances, David never forgot his First Love. Look at the confidence God displayed in God.
"Death of a Friendship" is the title of this KJV video devotion from Psalm 55, verses 9 through 15. Most of us, at some point or other, have experienced, or will experience the death of a friendship. There are no easy answers, and no easy solution to the difficulties we experience at that time. As in all things, our hope is that we would find the Lord our all-sufficient Friend who will never leave nor forsake us.
"Terrors of Death" is the title of this KJV video from Psalm 55, verses 4 through 8. Why does life have to be so filled with difficulties? Are we alone when we, as Christians, ask such questions? Do other Christians share the same sentiments? In answer to these questions, we have only to look at Psalms such as Psalm 55 for our answer. Here we see David, a man after God's own heart, practically consumed by the terrors of death.
"Enemies" is the title of this KJV video devotion from Psalm 55, verses 1 through 3. Why do we have enemies? One would think that if we live peaceably with God, in obedience to His commandments, even our very enemies would be at peace with us. However, that is not really the case, is it? In some ways, it seems that the closer we walk with the Lord, the more enemies we have.
"The Lord Is Good" is the title of this KJV video devotion from Psalm 54, verses 6 and 7. Not only did this good God provide a way of salvation for man who was hopelessly lost, but He guides and protects His people all the days of their lives. Then, as if that was not enough, He ushers us into an eternity where all is perfect, just, and right! It is not just a fairy tale with a "happily ever after" ending. It is the truth!
"Reward Evil" is the title of this KJV video devotion from Psalm 54, verses 4 and 5. Actually, I think the root problem is that we forget that God has any affect at all upon mankind, whether good or evil. We love to think of a kind, benevolent God who guards and protects His people from all evil, but we are quick to ask, Where is God?, when we see babies die.
"Name of God" is the title of this KJV video devotion from Psalm 54, verses 1 through 3. David, the king, needed help! When you were the king, where did you go for help? David recognized that help in the name of God, the God of strength, was the only true help he needed. As Christians today, do we expect anything different?
"Salvation from Zion" is the title of this KJV video devotion from Psalm 53, verses 6. Psalm 53 ends with a longing for the salvation of Israel, a salvation from Zion! Being written by David, this Psalm was actually written centuries before Israel actually went into captivity, but already the knowledge that God will bring the people back from captivity is being presented.
"Despised by God" is the title of this KJV video devotion from Psalm 53, verses 4 and 5. Sadly, those who are despised by God are those who are least aware of their state. Indeed, with the Psalmist, we must ask the question, "Have the workers of iniquity no knowledge?"
