Pondering the Psalms - Psalm 18


Some Sundays I choose a Psalm and write down some brief thoughts on it.



                    Today I'm looking at

Psalm 18 

A Psalm of David






This Psalm falls into 7 parts:


V. 1-3
Acknowledgement of God who was David's Deliverer






V. 4-6
Acknowledgement of God who Heard David's Cry






V. 7-15
Acknowledgement of God who was David's Avenger




V. 16-19
Acknowledgement of God who Delighted in David








V. 20-30
Acknowledgement of God who treated David Justly







V. 31-45
Acknowledgement of God who was David's Support




V. 46-50??

Acknowledgement of God who was worthy to be Exalted above all





This Psalm could be summed up simply by verses 31-32 








Surly we can acknowledge God in the same way
 as David did in this Psalm.




From this Psalm we should always remember that:


We have to be humble to be delivered also for our city to be delivered.   v 27

God will give us the strength for the battle against evil in our city   v 39

 So that the enemy will have to turn away from us  v 40

Because of what God has done and will do in our city we must extol him  v 49
