Morning: Psalm 27:4; Psalm 36:7–9; Psalm 65:4; Psalm 107:9; Matthew 5:6; Luke 1:53; John 6:35 We shall be satisfied with the goodness of your house. One thing have I asked of the Lord, that will I seek after: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to gaze upon the beauty of the Lord and to inquire in his temple. “Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied.”—“He has filled the hungry with good things, and the rich he has sent empty away.” He satisfies the longing soul, and the hungry soul he fills with good things.—“I am the bread of life; whoever comes to me shall not hunger, and whoever believes in me shall never thirst.” How precious is your steadfast love, O God! The children of mankind take refuge in the shadow of your wings. They feast on the abundance of your house, and you give them drink from the river of your delights. For with you is the fountain of life; in your light do we see light. Psalm 27:4 (Listen) 4   One thing have I asked of the LORD,    that will I seek after:  that I may dwell in the house of the LORD    all the days of my life,  to gaze upon the beauty of the LORD    and to inquire1 in his temple. Footnotes [1] 27:4 Or meditate (ESV) Psalm 36:7–9 (Listen) 7   How precious is your steadfast love, O God!    The children of mankind take refuge in the shadow of your wings.8   They feast on the abundance of your house,    and you give them drink from the river of your delights.9   For with you is the fountain of life;    in your light do we see light. (ESV) Psalm 65:4 (Listen) 4   Blessed is the one you choose and bring near,    to dwell in your courts!  We shall be satisfied with the goodness of your house,    the holiness of your temple! (ESV) Psalm 107:9 (Listen) 9   For he satisfies the longing soul,    and the hungry soul he fills with good things. (ESV) Matthew 5:6 (Listen) 6 “Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied. (ESV) Luke 1:53 (Listen) 53   he has filled the hungry with good things,    and the rich he has sent away empty. (ESV) John 6:35 (Listen) 35 Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life; whoever comes to me shall not hunger, and whoever believes in me shall never thirst. (ESV) Evening: Matthew 7:20–21; John 13:17; John 16:31; Hebrews 11:17–19; James 1:25; James 2:14; James 2:17; James 2:21; James 2:24 “Do you now believe?” What good is it, my brothers, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can that faith save him?… Faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead. By faith Abraham, when he was tested, offered up Isaac, and he who had received the promises was in the act of offering up his only son…. He considered that God was able even to raise him from the dead.—Was not Abraham our father justified by works when he offered up his son Isaac on the altar?… You see that a person is justified by works and not by faith alone. The one who looks into the perfect law, the law of liberty, and perseveres, being no hearer who forgets but a doer who acts, he will be blessed in his doing. “You will recognize them by their fruits. Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,' will enter the kingdom of heaven, but the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven.”—“If you know these things, blessed are you if you do them.” Matthew 7:20–21 (Listen) 20 Thus you will recognize them by their fruits. I Never Knew You 21 “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,' will enter the kingdom of heaven, but the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. (ESV) John 13:17 (Listen) 17 If you know these things, blessed are you if you do them. (ESV) John 16:31 (Listen) 31 Jesus answered them, “Do you now believe? (ESV) Hebrews 11:17–19 (Listen) 17 By faith Abraham, when he was tested, offered up Isaac, and he who had received the promises was in the act of offering up his only son, 18 of whom it was said, “Through Isaac shall your offspring be named.” 19 He considered that God was able even to raise him from the dead, from which, figuratively speaking, he did receive him back. (ESV) James 1:25 (Listen) 25 But the one who looks into the perfect law, the law of liberty, and perseveres, being no hearer who forgets but a doer who acts, he will be blessed in his doing. (ESV) James 2:14 (Listen) Faith Without Works Is Dead 14 What good is it, my brothers, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can that faith save him? (ESV) James 2:17 (Listen) 17 So also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead. (ESV) James 2:21 (Listen) 21 Was not Abraham our father justified by works when he offered up his son Isaac on the altar? (ESV) James 2:24 (Listen) 24 You see that a person is justified by works and not by faith alone. (ESV)

Even these may forget, yet I will not forget you. Behold, I have engraved you on the palms of my hands; your walls are continually before me.” The steps of a man are established by the Lord, when he delights in his way.—Delighting in the children of man.—The Lord takes pleasure in those who fear him, in those who hope in his steadfast love.—“They shall be mine, says the Lord of hosts, in the day when I make up my treasured possession, and I will spare them as a man spares his son who serves him.” You, who once were alienated and hostile in mind, doing evil deeds, he has now reconciled in his body of flesh by his death, in order to present you holy and blameless and above reproach before him.

When Ahithophel saw that his counsel was not followed, he saddled his donkey and went off home to his own city. He set his house in order and hanged himself, and he died.—A crushed spirit who can bear? Is there no balm in Gilead? Is there no physician there? Why then has the health of the daughter of my people not been restored?—The Lord has anointed me to bring good news to the poor; he has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted,… to comfort all who mourn; to grant to those who mourn in Zion—to give them a beautiful headdress instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, the garment of praise instead of a faint spirit.—“Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.” Philip… told him the good news about Jesus.—He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds. 2 Samuel 17:23 (Listen) 23 When Ahithophel saw that his counsel was not followed, he saddled his donkey and went off home to his own city.

But what fruit were you getting at that time from the things of which you are now ashamed? The end of those things is death. But now that you have been set free from sin and have become slaves of God, the fruit you get leads to sanctification and its end, eternal life.—Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to everyone who believes. “If anyone serves me, he must follow me; and where I am, there will my servant be also. If anyone serves me, the Father will honor him.”—“Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.

And he burned his son as an offering and used fortune-telling and omens and dealt with mediums and with wizards. He did much evil in the sight of the Lord, provoking him to anger.—And when he was in distress, he entreated the favor of the Lord his God and humbled himself greatly before the God of his fathers. He prayed to him, and God was moved by his entreaty and heard his plea. “Come now, let us reason together, says the Lord: though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they shall become like wool.”—The Lord is… patient toward you, not wishing that any should perish. 2 Kings 21:1–3 (Listen) Manasseh Reigns in Judah 21 Manasseh was twelve years old when he began to reign, and he reigned fifty-five years in Jerusalem. His mother's name was Hephzibah. 2 And he did what was evil in the sight of the LORD, according to the despicable practices of the nations whom the LORD drove out before the people of Israel. 3 For he rebuilt the high places that Hezekiah his father had destroyed, and he erected altars for Baal and made an Asherah, as Ahab king of Israel had done, and worshiped all the host of heaven and served them. (ESV) 2 Kings 21:5–6 (Listen) 5 And he built altars for all the host of heaven in the two courts of the house of the LORD. 6 And he burned his son as an offering1 and used fortune-telling and omens and dealt with mediums and with necromancers.

We have not ceased to pray for you, asking that you may be filled with the knowledge of his will in all spiritual wisdom and understanding.—That you, being rooted and grounded in love, may have strength to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God. Oh, the depth of the riches and wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are his judgments and how inscrutable his ways!—For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, declares the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.—You have multiplied, O Lord my God, your wondrous deeds and your thoughts toward us; none can compare with you!

(ESV) Colossians 1:9 (Listen) 9 And so, from the day we heard, we have not ceased to pray for you, asking that you may be filled with the knowledge of his will in all spiritual wisdom and understanding, (ESV) Evening: Job 4:8; Proverbs 11:18; Proverbs 11:24–25; Hosea 8:7; 2 Corinthians 9:6; Galatians 6:7–10 Whatever one sows, that will he also reap. “As I have seen, those who plow iniquity and sow trouble reap the same.”—They sow the wind, and they shall reap the whirlwind.—The one who sows to his own flesh will from the flesh reap corruption. One who sows righteousness gets a sure reward.—The one who sows to the Spirit will from the Spirit reap eternal life. And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up. So then, as we have opportunity, let us do good to everyone, and especially to those who are of the household of faith. One gives freely, yet grows all the richer; another withholds what he should give, and only suffers want.

“Hear me when I call, O God of my righteousness! You have relieved me in my distress; Have mercy on me, and hear my prayer. How long, O you sons of men, Will you turn my glory to shame? How long will you love worthlessness And seek falsehood? Selah But know that the LORD has set apart for Himself him who is godly; The LORD will hear when I call to Him. Be angry, and do not sin. Meditate within your heart on your bed, and be still. Selah Offer the sacrifices of righteousness, And put your trust in the LORD. There are many who say, "Who will show us any good?" LORD, lift up the light of Your countenance upon us. You have put gladness in my heart, More than in the season that their grain and wine increased. I will both lie down in peace, and sleep; For You alone, O LORD, make me dwell in safety.” We believe that this Psalm was also written by David as he was fleeing from his son Absalom who was leading an insurrection against him. Actually Psalm 3 and Psalm 4 go together. Psalm 3 was probably written after David had crossed the Jordan River and was camping with his small band of loyal soldiers at Mahanaim. That night he still went to sleep knowing that Absalom might even attack at any time. Psalm 3 is called the “Morning Psalm”, because David wrote in Psalm 3:5, “I lay down and slept; I awoke, for the LORD sustained me.” So the morning following the insurrection we find David proclaiming his trust in the Lord. Psalm 4 is considered an “Evening Psalm”. We know from 2 Samuel 17:1-14, that Absalom was advised by Hushai not to immediately pursue David but to wait. It is possible that several days have now passed and things have somewhat settled down for David and his men as they have some time to prepared for whatever will happen next. We believe it is then that David writes this Psalm one evening before he goes to sleep. He reminds himself to, “Meditate within your heart on your bed, and be still.” (v. 4). In verse 8 he writes, “I will both lie down in peace, and sleep; For You alone, O LORD, make me dwell in safety.” You will find as you read through the Book of Psalms that many of the Psalms follow this same pattern with the first verses describing a person in distress or anguish. They are crying out for help and mercy in the first verses but by the time they get to the last few verses of the Psalm, they are proclaiming their hope, faith, trust in the Lord and His deliverance for them. I always found this interesting and believe that as we take our focus off our problems or challenges that have distressed and discouraged us and have us down, and we look up and make our plea to the Lord, it will always change our perspective and attitude! We begin to see that God is bigger than our problems and we can praise and worship Him even before the deliverance or victory comes! In the title to this Psalm, we have the first mention of "the chief musician," who is included in the titles of fifty-three psalms. He was the "minister of worship" and custodian of the sacred psalms at the tabernacle and then the temple (1 Chron. 6:31-32; 15:16-22; 25:1, 7). "Accompanied by stringed instruments", comes from the Hebrew word “neginoth”, (found in the title for Psalms 4, 6, 54, 55, 61, 67, 76), and refers to the harp and lyre (1 Chron. 23:5; 25:1, 3, 6). It's a wonderful thing that David could turn this distressing experience into song, to the glory of God. His example shows us what our responses ought to be in times of crisis. I trust these devotions and Psalms will encourage you to trust the Lord every day as David did! God bless!

(ESV) Ephesians 4:1–6 (Listen) Unity in the Body of Christ 4 I therefore, a prisoner for the Lord, urge you to walk in a manner worthy of the calling to which you have been called, 2 with all humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another in love, 3 eager to maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. 4 There is one body and one Spirit—just as you were called to the one hope that belongs to your call—5 one Lord, one faith, one baptism, 6 one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all.
