Good morning.

One cannot but be stirred by the writings of David, the psalmist. They often express a human reaction wanting revenge, on the one hand - "Arise, Lord ! Deliver me, my God! Strike all my enemies on the jaw; break the teeth of the wicked." (Psalm 3:7) and a revelation of God and His greatness, on the other hand - "Where can I go from your Spirit? Where can I flee from your presence? If I go up to the heavens, you are there; if I make my bed in the depths, you are there. If I rise on the wings of the dawn, if I settle on the far side of the sea, even there your hand will guide me, your right hand will hold me fast."

(Psalm 139:7‭-‬10)

In Psalm 19, David shows us 2 ways through which God us revealed to us.

• General revelation which is used to reveal God to humanity: "The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands. Day after day they pour forth speech; night after night they reveal knowledge." (Psalms 19:1‭-‬2)

• Specific revelation where God is revealed through the written and spoken Word. "The law of the Lord is perfect, refreshing the soul. The statutes of the Lord are trustworthy, making wise the simple. The precepts of the Lord are right, giving joy to the heart. The commands of the Lord are radiant, giving light to the eyes." (Psalm19:7‭-‬8)

As children of God we are in the privileged position to experience and appreciate the revelation of God. Let us make the time to enjoy His creation and to meditate on His Word.

Good morning. David writing in Psalm 43:5 asks, "Why, my soul, are you downcast? Why so disturbed within me?" He then gives us good advice, "Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior
