So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.—1 Corinthians 10:31 God created the world to display His power and His patience, His glory and His grace (Romans 9:22–23).

A good name is to be chosen rather than great riches, and favor is better than silver or gold.—Proverbs 22:1 I used to think that this “name” King Solomon commends is the one given to us by our parents (or our “Christian names”). Now I believe he is talking about our reputations or our character. […]

Don’t Read It Wrong

2 Chronicles 16:9 says something very important about God. He is a God who lacks nothing, and therefore gives everything. He is the source of help for all our needs. And because this is the case, because he is the giver and there is nothing we have which has not been received (1 Corinthians 4:7), […]

Acts 4:11–12, This Jesus is the stone that was rejected by you, the builders, which has become the cornerstone.

Proverbs 18:10 tells us something about God’s sufficiency. It tells us that he is enough. Matthew Henry comments, There is enough in God, and in the discoveries which he has made of himself to us, to make us easy at all times. The wealth laid up in this tower is enough to enrich them, to […]

Psalm 103:8–10 is doing more than a passing reference when David refers to how the Lord made himself known to Moses. He intends to take the reader back to a moment in Scripture that can hardly be overstated. He’s taking us to Exodus 34:5–7, the scene where the Lord proclaims his name. He tells Moses […]

Psalm 103:8-10, The Lord is merciful and gracious, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love. He will not always chide, nor will he keep his anger forever.

Psalm 103:5–7, who satisfies you with good so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s. The LORD works righteousness and justice for all who are oppressed.

. . . at your right hand are pleasures forevermore. The association of God and pleasure is not constrained by anything outside him. He is utterly independent and satisfied in all that he is as the Triune God. This is foundational to any thoughts we might have of God and pleasure and the benefits for […]

“No one has heard or perceived by the ear, no eye has seen a God beside you, who acts for those who wait for him” (Isaiah 64:4). This ‘not hearing’ and ‘not seeing’ highlights the uniqueness of God. It implies that we have heard of him and that we have seen him. God has revealed […]
