For Saturday we read five Psalms of David they are 5, 27, 31, 34, and 52.

Psalm 7

David prays that God will deliver him from his pursuers. He was willing to be chastised for what he did wrong. David affirms that God does not only judge human actions but also examines the thoughts and emotions. God is ready like a warrior to judge anyone who does not repent. He then thanks God for doing what is right because He is righteous.

Psalm 27

David affirms the Lord as the source of his confidence. He says I have asked one thing of the Lord to dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life. He appeals to God to be gracious he wants nothing more than to seek the face of God. Wait for the Lord be strong and let your heart be courageous.

Psalm 31

David appeals to God for deliverance from oppression. He describes God as his rock of refuge and a mountain fortress. He expresses his hatred for the worship of worthless idols. In spite of his desperate circumstances, David trusts the God will rescue him. He knew every aspect of his life was in God’s hands. David tells the rest of his fellow worshippers to love God, be strong and courageous, and put their hope in Him.

Psalm 34

David vows to praise the Lord – not only when things are well – but at all times. David reveals that he sought God in the midst of his trials and God delivered him. And God had saved him. He extends an invitation to taste and see that the Lord is good. The righteous have many adversities. In fact, you haven’t seen trouble until you become a Christian. But through it all He protects His people. He concludes Psalm 34 with these words “Those who hate the righteous will be punished.

Psalm 52

This Psalm was written after Doeg reported that he had found David who was helped by the priest Ahimelech who Saul had murdered. David contrasts Doeg whose behavior is wicked with that of God who demonstrates faithful love. David is certain that God will judge the wicked, including Doeg with eternal damnation. Not only will God execute justice against the wicked, but He will also vindicate the righteous. In light of God’s faithful love David offers praise.
