May 5 – Psalms 1, 2, 15, 22-24, 47, & 68

Below are my thoughts from the daily Bible reading of the West Side Church of Christ. Today’s reading comes from Psalms 1, 2, 15, 22-24, 47, & 68. Before reading I invite you to pray and asked God to speak to you as you read his word. Also above in the tabs is a link to the Bible reading plan.

If you have not caught on by now, let me share it again with you, David has built up a lot of enemies. Whether it was his own father-in-law Saul, or the other nations he helped to defeat in battle, and even later in life from within his own family, there are many who do not like David and even want him dead. He often writes about this as we have seen time and again from the Psalms.

What I find amazing and a teachable moment for us is that David, at least in his writings, and even in his actions (Remember David and Saul in the cave when Saul went to relieve himself, David cuts off a corner of his robe, and feels awful for even doing that to the Lord’s anointed?), let’s God bring about the judgment that his enemies deserve. David turns it over to God to let him deal with what needs dealt with.

Do you do that? Do you let God handle your problems? Do you share your problems with God? Do you wait for His answers, His guidance, and His deliverance? If not imagine ways you can begin to make that happen in your life.
