Today you should read: Psalm 18:25-50

You can’t but help to think of God’s provision when reading these last 25 verses of Psalm 18. In v. 31 King David reminds us that our God is a rock and that there’s no one like Him. Both common themes in songs that we sing at CPC on Sundays. King David proves that by showing how God has provided for him in battles against his enemies and deliverance from evil. He ends the Psalm with praise for all that God has done.

This pattern of Adoration, Provision and Praise is good for us to remember. We should always adore God for who He is and what He has done for us in salvation through the Gospel and because He deserves the glory. However don’t forget to think of specific circumstances and times that He has provided for you. All grace is God’s grace and we don’t deserve it or earn it. God gives us protection, freedom, and guidance out of His love. When thinking about who God is and what He has done for us, dwelling upon his provision, our heart should overflow with praise. We love Him back and worship Him best when we reminisce on the above things like King David did.

How can you adore God for who He is and what He has done for you?

How has God provided for you?

How can you praise Him in light of what you thought about in the first two questions?

  1. A footnote states that this is the 4th longest Psalm. How appropriate that it contains praise for repeated deliverance of David from all his enemies!

    Lord help me make this my song as well. Great salvation He brings to his king, and shows steadfast love to his anointed, to David and his offspring forever.

    1. It has nothing on psalm 119. 😉 thanks for faithfully reading Korbet. Also I listened to your sermon at Richmond last night while doing some work. Great job!!!
