Psalm 16-20

August 8, 2014

Here’s how the study works: Read the chapters mentioned in the heading during the week and share any words, thoughts, verses that stood out to you. Having a week for several chapters creates the opportunity to revisit them and make additional comments as you feel inclined as well as make comments on other people’s insights.

  1. 16:5 Lord, you alone are my portion and my cup; you make my lot secure.

    God's perspective is the true one and his view is that he has given me a situation in life that is secure. I'm secure in him. I need to hang onto this view and not the distorted one the world, the flesh and the devil would have me believe.

  3. 17:2 Let my vindication come from you; may your eyes see what is right.
    17:15 As for me, I will be vindicated and will see your face; when I awake, I will be satisfied with seeing your likeness.

    I can trust God to be my Vindicator. He will vindicate me in his time and in his way. And in the end, regardless of my circumstances, I will be satisfied with and in Jesus.

  5. 18:34 He trains my hands for battle; my arms can bend a bow of bronze.

    God trains me for growth. It is a process, a long slow process sometimes. Increased growth leads to strength (my arms "bending a bow of bronze").

  7. 19:1-4 The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands. Day after day they pour forth speech; night after night they reveal knowledge. They have no speech, they use no words; no sound is heard from them. Yet their voice goes out into all the earth, their words to the ends of the world.

    We don't always need words to get our message across. The skies don't just proclaim but they "pour forth speech"; "reveal knowledge"; "their words to the ends of the world". God's handiwork is revealed to the remote, inaccessible places of the world.

    Likewise God's presence in my life speaks to those around me. His handiwork in my life speaks volume.

  9. 20:7-8 Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the Lord our God. They are brought to their knees and fall, but we rise up and stand firm.

    Some trust in their own strength, their own resources but they will exhaust themselves. They will fall. But God's people will be empowered and strengthen. They will be renewed.
