DAVID’S MEDICINE CABINET

Samuel A CainO LORD my God, I cried to you for help, and you have healed me. (Psalm 30:2 ESV)

I love the Psalms. The Psalms stir us to worship God more diligently. The Psalms teach us to rest in God alone as the only source of our true happiness and requirements. The Psalms offer guidance in times of affliction. In the Psalms, our innermost thoughts are revealed.

The Psalms encourage us to pray. We must lay our general needs and hope for relief from affliction before God in prayer. The Psalms also teach us to praise God and lift our hearts to Him. They are surely a means to comfort and strength.

May I suggest a daily dose of the Psalms? Here are a few of my favorites:

I lift up my eyes to the hills. From where does my help come? My help comes from the LORD, who made heaven and earth. He will not let your foot be moved; he who keeps you will not slumber. (Psalm 121:1-3 ESV)

Though I walk in the midst of trouble, you preserve my life; you stretch out your hand against the wrath of my enemies, and your right hand delivers me. The LORD will fulfill his purpose for me; your steadfast love, O LORD, endures forever. Do not forsake the work of your hands. (Psalm 138:7-8 ESV)

For God alone, O my soul, wait in silence, for my hope is from him. He only is my rock and my salvation, my fortress; I shall not be shaken. On God rests my salvation and my glory; my mighty rock, my refuge is God. (Psalm 62:5-7 ESV)

God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear though the earth gives way, though the mountains be moved into the heart of the sea, though its waters roar and foam, though the mountains tremble at its swelling. Selah (Psalm 46:1-3 ESV)

I waited patiently for the LORD; he inclined to me and heard my cry. He drew me up from the pit of destruction, out of the miry bog, and set my feet upon a rock, making my steps secure. (Psalm 40:1-2 ESV)

For a day in your courts is better than a thousand elsewhere. I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God than dwell in the tents of wickedness. For the LORD God is a sun and shield; the LORD bestows favor and honor. No good thing does he withhold from those who walk uprightly. (Psalm 84:10-11 ESV)
