For your personal meditation and reflection on this Lord’s Day.
Some trust in chariots and some in horses,
but we trust in the name of the Lord our God.
Psalm 50:14-15, 23
Offer to God a sacrifice of thanksgiving,
and perform your vows to the Most High,
15 and call upon me in the day of trouble;
I will deliver you, and you shall glorify me.”
23 The one who offers thanksgiving as his sacrifice glorifies me;
to one who orders his way rightly
I will show the salvation of God!”
Psalm 80:3 (repeated in 7 & 19)
Restore us, O God of hosts;
let your face shine, that we may be saved!
The Lord says to my Lord:
“Sit at my right hand,
until I make your enemies your footstool.”
[Note: Jesus identifies himself as the Lord of David who now reigns at God’s right hand.]
Psalm 140:1-2, 12-13
Deliver me, O Lord, from evil men;
preserve me from violent men,
2 who plan evil things in their heart
and stir up wars continually.
12 I know that the Lord will maintain the cause of the afflicted,
and will execute justice for the needy.
13 Surely the righteous shall give thanks to your name;
the upright shall dwell in your presence.
