Knowing Christ in Psalm 5 (pt. 1 of 4)

Psalm 5 (ESV)

Give ear to my words, O Lord;
    consider my groaning.
Give attention to the sound of my cry,
    my King and my God,
    for to you do I pray.
O Lord, in the morning you hear my voice;
    in the morning I prepare a sacrifice for you and watch.

 

For you are not a God who delights in wickedness;
    evil may not dwell with you.
The boastful shall not stand before your eyes;
    you hate all evildoers.
You destroy those who speak lies;
    the Lord abhors the bloodthirsty and deceitful man.

 

But I, through the abundance of your steadfast love,
    will enter your house.
   I will bow down toward your holy temple
    in the fear of you.
Lead me, O Lord, in your righteousness
    because of my enemies;
    make your way straight before me.

 

For there is no truth in their mouth;
    their inmost self is destruction;
   their throat is an open grave;
    they flatter with their tongue.
10 Make them bear their guilt, O God;
    let them fall by their own counsels;
   because of the abundance of their transgressions cast them out,
    for they have rebelled against you.

 

11 But let all who take refuge in you rejoice;
    let them ever sing for joy,
   and spread your protection over them,
    that those who love your name may exult in you.
12 For you bless the righteous, O Lord;
    you cover him with favor as with a shield.

I encourage you to memorize Psalm 5 this week. You can do it. Grab a notecard. Hide His word in your heart. We’ll start working through the Psalm tomorrow with verses 1-3. Meditate as you memorize. Know Christ.

Lux to you,
Mike
