Putting God's Word into Practice…

Psalm 22 ~ God is Holy

on July 8, 2014

When the psalmist wrote this, he was in the midst of great affliction, desperation and isolation.  He felt forsaken.  By verse 3, there is a big, “YET!”  just as there is in all of our trials and tribulations.

Yet You are holy, enthroned on the praises of Israel!  No matter what is going on in our lives God is still holy–perfect; He is still the King on the throne; and He is still dwelling among His people!  And those who trust in Him:

  • He delivers (vs. 4)
  • He proves Himself trustworthy (vs. 4,9)
  • He rescues (vs. 5)
  • He hears (vs. 24)
  • He satisfies (vs. 26)

You who fear the LORD, PRAISE HIM!  All you offspring of Jacob, GLORIFY HIM, and STAND IN AWE OF HIM, all you offspring of Israel! (vs. 23) I encourage you to dwell on the goodness of God, cry out to Him for help, and praise Him no matter what!
