April 12, 2021 – Psalms 82-86

Here is the well-known “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” (84:10). The psalmist cherishes his time with God. And why not, for David declared, “For you, O Lord, are good and forgiving, abounding in steadfast love to all who call upon you” (86:5).


You know, we tend to love and desire to spend time with those who love us, and our God has loved us with so great a love! In fact, “God showed how much he loved us by sending his one and only Son into the world so that we might have eternal life through him. This is real love—not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as a sacrifice to take away our sins” (1 John 4:9,10 NLT). And, of course, how can we not remember, “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life” (John 3:16 ESV). Amazing love!


And can it be that I should gain

An interest in the Savior’s blood?

Died He for me, who caused His pain—

For me, who Him to death pursued?

Amazing love! How can it be,

That Thou, my God, shouldst die for me?

Amazing love! How can it be,

That Thou, my God, shouldst die for me? --Charles Wesley

In a schedule of reading through the Bible in a year, the book of Proverbs has always seemed the most difficult book for me. Many of the individual proverbs are sort of stand-alone wisdom sayings, and
