Psalm 92 (Psalm 92:1-15)

Rosemary Aldis, 2nd August 2015
Part of the Psalms for Summer series, preached at a Sunday Morning service

A walk round a headland lets you see things from different perspectives. Psalm 92 is like that.
Vv 1-3: It is good to praise the Lord.
1. Because of God's love.
2. Because of God's faithfulness - he is faithful to every promise he has made.
Vv 4 & 5: Remember his deeds.
Vv 6 & 7: The wicked seem to flourish - why? Ultimately there is a reckoning.
We've reached the headland - v 8. The psalmist stands in awe and wonder.
V 9: There will be a day of reckoning.
Vv 10 & 11: Whatever the struggle, God gives the Psalmist strength.
Vv 12 - 15: God will help the righteous to flourish as they praise him.

Psalm 92 (Listen)

A Psalm. A Song for the Sabbath.

92:1   It is good to give thanks to the LORD,
    to sing praises to your name, O Most High;
  to declare your steadfast love in the morning,
    and your faithfulness by night,
  to the music of the lute and the harp,
    to the melody of the lyre.
  For you, O LORD, have made me glad by your work;
    at the works of your hands I sing for joy.
  How great are your works, O LORD!
    Your thoughts are very deep!
  The stupid man cannot know;
    the fool cannot understand this:
  that though the wicked sprout like grass
    and all evildoers flourish,
  they are doomed to destruction forever;
    but you, O LORD, are on high forever.
  For behold, your enemies, O LORD,
    for behold, your enemies shall perish;
    all evildoers shall be scattered.
10   But you have exalted my horn like that of the wild ox;
    you have poured over me fresh oil.
11   My eyes have seen the downfall of my enemies;
    my ears have heard the doom of my evil assailants.
12   The righteous flourish like the palm tree
    and grow like a cedar in Lebanon.
13   They are planted in the house of the LORD;
    they flourish in the courts of our God.
14   They still bear fruit in old age;
    they are ever full of sap and green,
15   to declare that the LORD is upright;
    he is my rock, and there is no unrighteousness in him.
