Psalm 76 (CSB)

Psalm 76

GOD, THE POWERFUL JUDGE

For the choir director: with stringed instruments. A psalm of Asaph. A song. 

God is known in Judah; 

his name is great in Israel. 

His tent is in Salem, 

his dwelling place in Zion. 

There he shatters the bow’s flaming arrows, 

the shield, the sword, and the weapons of war. 

Selah

You are resplendent and majestic 

coming down from the mountains of prey. 

The brave-hearted have been plundered; 

they have slipped into their final sleep. 

None of the warriors was able to lift a hand. 

At your rebuke, God of Jacob, 

both chariot and horse lay still. 

And you—you are to be feared. 

When you are angry, 

who can stand before you? 

From heaven you pronounced judgment. 

The earth feared and grew quiet 

when God rose up to judge 

and to save all the lowly of the earth. 

Selah

10 Even human wrath will praise you; 

you will clothe yourself 

with the wrath that remains.,

11 Make and keep your vows 

to the Lord your God; 

let all who are around him bring tribute 

to the awe-inspiring one.,

12 He humbles the spirit of leaders; 

he is feared by the kings of the earth.

Proverbs 14:26–28 (CSB)

26 In the fear of the Lord one has strong confidence 

and his children have a refuge. 

27 The fear of the Lord is a fountain of life, 

turning people away from the snares of death. 

28 A large population is a king’s splendor, 

but a shortage of people is a ruler’s devastation.

Luke 22:31–46 (CSB)

PETER’S DENIAL PREDICTED

31 “Simon, Simon, look out. Satan has asked to sift you like wheat. 32 But I have prayed for you that your faith may not fail. And you, when you have turned back, strengthen your brothers.” 

33 “Lord,” he told him, “I’m ready to go with you both to prison and to death.” 

34 “I tell you, Peter,” he said, “the rooster will not crow today until you deny three times that you know me.” 

BE READY FOR TROUBLE

35 He also said to them, “When I sent you out without money-bag, traveling bag, or sandals, did you lack anything?” 

“Not a thing,” they said. 

36 Then he said to them, “But now, whoever has a money-bag should take it, and also a traveling bag. And whoever doesn’t have a sword should sell his robe and buy one. 37 For I tell you, what is written must be fulfilled in me: And he was counted among the lawless., Yes, what is written about me is coming to its fulfillment.”

38 “Lord,” they said, “look, here are two swords.” 

“That is enough!” he told them. 

THE PRAYER IN THE GARDEN

39 He went out and made his way as usual to the Mount of Olives, and the disciples followed him. 40 When he reached the place, he told them, “Pray that you may not fall into temptation.” 41 Then he withdrew from them about a stone’s throw, knelt down, and began to pray, 42 “Father, if you are willing, take this cup away from me—nevertheless, not my will, but yours, be done.” 

43 Then an angel from heaven appeared to him, strengthening him. 44 Being in anguish, he prayed more fervently, and his sweat became like drops of blood falling to the ground. 45 When he got up from prayer and came to the disciples, he found them sleeping, exhausted from their grief. 46 “Why are you sleeping?” he asked them. “Get up and pray, so that you won’t fall into temptation.”

Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good. His faithful love endures forever. A man who loves wisdom brings joy to his father, but one who consorts with prostitutes destroys his wealth. Since we have heard that some without our authorization went out from us and troubled you with their words and unsettled your hearts, we have unanimously decided to select men and send them to you along with our dearly loved Barnabas and Paul, who have risked their lives for the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. The churches were strengthened in the faith and grew daily in numbers.

The LORD God Created (January 5, 2021)

When God began to create the heavens and the earth—the earth was without shape or form, it was dark over the deep sea, and God’s wind swept over the waters—God said, “Let there be light.” And so light appeared. God saw how good the light was. God separated the light from the darkness. God named the light Day and the darkness Night.

His Blood Cries Out (January 6, 2020)

What did you do? The voice of your brother’s blood is crying to me from the ground. You are now cursed from the ground that opened its mouth to take your brother’s blood from your hand. When you farm the fertile land, it will no longer grow anything for you, and you will become a roving nomad on the earth. I get no pleasure from the blood. Though you offer many prayers, I will not listen, for your hands are covered with the blood of innocent victims.
