Psalms 19-20

"The Best Sermon Ever"

In this video, we will discuss the best sermon ever! God's glory is the topic and the heavens are doing the preaching! The sermon is awesome because it requires no words, has no limited access based on time or geography, and it transcends language!

Psalm 19, according to CS Lewis, is one of the greatest poems in the Psalms. It also holds some of the most profound theology. The same God who reveals His glory to mankind in the sky and without words, also reveals His glory on earth through words. There is much to learn from Psalm 19!

Psalm 20 reflects a prayer for blessing in time of need. The need is for victory in battle. Maybe it will help us to have in our minds the Russia-Ukraine battle as we read this. We know David understands that success ultimately is not found in a nations or a person's military or individual strength. Strong nations fall. Strong men fall.

David's strength was in reliance on God. "Some trust in horses and others in chariots", but David knew those things were not the "be all, end all" for military victory.

What did David trust? God question.
