Sermons on Psalm 27:13

Psalm 27 13-14

We are cast on a climate where Satan rules. Now, none of us can fully despair of the difficulty, but yet there are considerations which may help our faith; as, I. Through it all, David learned to trust in God and to take Him at His Word. And finally he brings out the fact that he had almost been in despair. Has Conscience, the moral palate, any judgment to give concerning the things of the Heart? As a servant waits upon his lord. Both these dangers had evidently occurred to David, and in the text he is led by the Holy Spirit to speak about them. We bring certain thoughts into the mind, and from these thoughts there proceed certain sentiments.

PSALMS CHAPTER 27 KJV

Psalm 27 13-14

The way to everlasting life is not a broad and easy way. Beggars should be willing to wait One morning I noticed a tramp knocking at a house door. A sorrowless world would be a joyless one. If it is to go to pieces, it is well that the pieces be strong; well that we provide something that will float when the wreck breaks up. De die in diem expecta, wait still; do it from one day to another.

Psalms 27:13

Psalm 27 13-14

A good purpose of His often takes time to ripen. And so each must wait and be strong. Had he said no more than Act like a man, he would have appeared to allege the motions of his own free-will, but as he immediately adds, by way of correction, that God would be at hand to strengthen his heart, he plainly enough shows, that when the saints strive vigorously, they fight in the strength of another, and not in their own. They are largely, if not exclusively, dependent upon thought. If we have no confidence in him, and of enjoying those pleasures with him in which he himself takes delight, it is no wonder if we faint, and have not courage enough to wait; but if we have that cordial, a belief, that, after all our humiliation here below, and after all the violence of our enemies, and being trampled on by them, we shall at last be so far lifted above them as to fit by him on his heavenly throne, the talk will not be greater than we can through grace undergo, patiently to wait his time for the accomplishment of so transcendant an honour and favour to us. Now, suppose you could get a radiant, confident, optimistic courage, a disposition that would keep its lips still and closed when it might appear as though to open them would be immediate gain, and that would speak though speech should wreck a possible career, that would go right on disregarding on the one hand a menace, or, on the other hand, a smile--suppose you could get a disposition like that implanted into the personality of men, suppose it had become part of my constitution, part of my make up--pure, clean, clear courage, what would be the influence of it?

Psalms 27:13

Psalm 27 13-14

Although I never wanted my marriage to end in divorce, it seems to be heading in that direction, to which I am now ok with. And this the Lord calls upon his people to do. And the strictly grammatical translation in the passage before us, brings out a much finer meaning. Under the word waiting, too, he puts himself in mind of new trials, and sets before his eyes the cross which he must bear. In some hearts the feelings lurk like carrion vultures; in others they sing and soar like the lark. A single thought in the mind may exhale an almost imperceptible influence. Who is the Rock of our salvation? It is a narrow, straight path.

PSALMS CHAPTER 27 KJV

Psalm 27 13-14

His belief that he would yet be permitted to see the goodness of God upon the earth. Do not cast me off, do not forsake me, O God of my salvation! When the enemy of our mind attempts to torment us with his lies, we can go to the word of God and find hope and peace. Is revival and renewal even possible today! That is, they meditate violence or cruel treatment. The Psalmist, after having exhorted himself to be strong, directs attention to Him who alone can give the strength to comply with this exhortation. And for many of the worst of our calamities we have had only ourselves to blame. And waited for his faltering, as Jeremiah's companions did for him. As easy as it is to read the bible and miss the meaning of specific passages, it's also easy to cling to certain passages and phrases without really knowing the meaning.

Psalm 27 13-14

Many the hearts from which the hope shall sicken, Many shall faint, before His Kingdom come. And is opposed to the grave, which is the place of the dead. Much more should it be so with us towards our Lord Jesus; let us follow Him in every page of inspiration, study every line of creation, and learn of Him in all the teachings of His providence. You have probably read the psalm or heard it many times in the past. Wait for Jehovah: Be strong and let thy heart take courage; Yea, wait thou for Jehovah. Their faith is far too fresh and powerful for this.

PSALMS CHAPTER 27 KJV

Psalm 27 13-14

And David was thus earnestly desirous of this mercy in this life, not because he placed his portion in these things, which he so solemnly disclaims, Psalms 17:14, but because the truth and glory of God were highly concerned in making good the promise of the kingdom made to him. Out of thought there comes feeling, just as fragrance is born of a rose, and a noisome stench of a cesspool. In this way, the connection with the Psalms 27:13 13th verse would be altogether broken. This clause is not in the original text, but is a supplement of our translators; and it is generally agreed there is a defect of expression, which must be supplied in some way or other: the Jewish interpreters generally refer it to the preceding words; one supplies thus F13 Jarchi. I call them the aristocracy because they possess a certain subtlety of refinement which distinguishes them from others which are more closely and intimately related to the flesh. I've often wondered the same thing, even of myself, when it comes to specific verses that Christians commonly reference. It is accompanied with a well-grounded hope of the happiness to be enjoyed above.

Psalm 27 Explained

Psalm 27 13-14

Matthew Poole's English Annotations on the Holy Bible. Once people read the explanation of Psalm 27, they will surely understand it much better. David wrote Psalm 27 just like he wrote some many our the 40 psalms that he penned. By and by the stagnant pools will begin to stir, and the little eddies to whirl, and pool to reach over to pool and to run into one, until soon the bay will be brimming again, and the mud-banks hidden and the fresh, living tide enfolding the rocks. Who eyed him as Saul did 1 Sam. But as nothing is more difficult than to give God the honor of relying upon him, when he hides himself from us, or delays his assistance, David stirs himself up to collect strength; as if he had said, If fearfulness steal upon thee; if temptation shake thy faith; if the feelings of the flesh rise in tumult, do not faint; but rather endeavor to rise above them by an invincible resolution of mind.
