But You Laugh At Them Lord!

S. O. A. P. Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional! S-cripture: Psalm 59:8a “But You Laugh At Them Lord!” O-bservation: First of all, Happy Easter! As I read the scripture this AM, I must put it in context. David, the king, was remarking to the Lord that so many nations of the world at that time had spewed vile remarks from their mouths concerning the God of Israel. And then David, as if to shake his head in amazement, said, “But You Laugh At Them Lord!” A-pplication: I absolutely love this passage of scripture. Let’s start with the fact that none of the nations King David was...

All Day Long Songs

S. O. A. P. Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional! S-cripture: Psalm 65:8 The whole earth is filled with awe at your wonders; where morning dawns, where evening fades, you call forth songs of joy.

Just Praise All The Time

S. O. A. P. Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional! S-cripture: Psalm 150:6 Let everything that has breath praise the Lord. Praise the Lord. O-bservation: This is the very last verse of a hundred and fifty chapters of praise unto the Lord in the book of Psalms. We know of five different writers, one of which was Moses, who wrote the 90th Psalm. The children of Korah wrote 11 of the Psalms. David wrote 73 of the Psalms. But we don’t know the identification of the authorship of 51 of the Psalms. Either way, they are all a praise to our great Lord! A-pplication: Whenever I need...

He Doesn’t Throw Shade

S. O. A. P. Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional! S-cripture: Psalm 121:5 The Lord watches over you—the Lord is your shade at your right hand. O-bservation: King David said that our great God is ALWAYS watching over us. He said that our God is our SHADE at our right hand. A-pplication: Some Bible scholars believe that David wrote these words while in the “Cave of Adullam.” He was running from King Saul, who was convinced David was out to get him. In other words, in his most desperate of times David saw the Lord as someone who was willing to create a shady and restful place...
