Meditations in the Psalms

February 1st

Psalm 18:24-31

The Lord returns His blessing upon those who have shown mercy, uprightness, and purity (vv. 24-26). It is a serious reminder to all of us how much God hates pride when we read the last phrase of verse 27 that He will “bring down high looks.” The Lord is the protection and the guide in times of darkness and difficulties – “He is a buckler to all those that trust in Him.”

  1. The recompense of the Lord – verse 24
  2. The recognition of how the Lord rewards us – verses 25-27
  3. The results which the godly experience – verses 28-29
  4. The resources of the Lord – verse 30
  5. The response of a believing heart – verse 31

Knowing what David has said about the Lord and His ways, we cannot help but join with him in expressing the words of verse 31 – “For who is God save the LORD?” There are no other acceptable claims – only the LORD!
