Meditations in the Psalms

December 7th

Psalm 138:1-8

This psalm of praise by king David is a testimony to what was most important in his life. His worship of the Lord and praise of what the Lord had done in his life was continual and real. He knew that one day all nations would praise the Lord. David understood that in the midst of his “trouble” the Lord would “revive” him, and restore His confidence and assurance. David knew that the Lord would finish the work that He had begun in him. Paul wrote the same in Philippians 1:6: “Being confident of this very thing, that He which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ.”

  1. The praise of his whole heart – verse 1
  2. The priority of God’s Word – verse 2
  3. The prayer that was answered – verse 3
  4. The place of praise and singing among the kings of the earth – verses 4-5
  5. The proud will not have God’s blessing – verse 6
  6. The protection which David experienced – verse 7
  7. The plan which the Lord will accomplish – verse 8

Yes, we can count on the Lord completing in our lives that which He has started and sustained. He will “revive” us, and He will “save” us.
