Psalm 37:27  Depart from evil, and do good; and dwell for evermore.

Here we have a short and simple verse, yet extremely powerful in wisdom and influence.  As we live our daily lives we pass by much evil and much evil passes by us.  As I traveled a busy highway a while back, I wondered how many of the vehicles that I was meeting were under the influence of alcohol or drugs.  Just a few days ago I read where a head-on collision had taken place not far from here and both drivers were killed instantly.  As we travel the highways, we are within a few feet of total destruction.  One accidental jerk of the steering wheel could cause a head on collision or a tragic accident down an embankment or against a tree.  We rarely think of just how close to destruction we come many times each day.  My friend, it is the same way with evil.  We are all subjected to much evil every single day.  Much of it, we never even see or know about, because the sovereign hand of God sways us from it.  Never underestimate the delays that the Lord causes in your daily life.  And then there is the evil that we are aware of.  Much evil and wickedness is all around us.  It presents its opportunity to entrap us at the work place, at the gas station, at school, on the internet, and many other places.  Evil lurks in the shadows of our life as it desires the opportunity to destroy us or cause much damage to our Christian character.  There are immoral traps and traps of lasciviousness set by the Devil and his demons along our pathways.  We must avoid them!  We must guard our eyes, ears and minds from evil.  Our text verse reminds us of the importance of departing from it.  In other words, steer from it, walk away, detour it.  Evil has a seductive draw to it.  Therefore, we must not entertain it.  So many Christians have fell into the trap because they were simply entertaining evil with no intentions to fall into it.  If a person is naive and handles a snake but does not consider the danger of being bit, they are ignorantly placing themselves in harm’s way.  That’s what snakes do, they bite you.  Ask Eve, she had no intentions of disobeying God as she entertained the Devil.  But when she least expected it, he planted his poison into her mind.  We must be sensitive to the Spirit of God as He is willing to guide us and to guard us from evil.  Dear friend, be faithful to the Lord.  Stay away from the traps of sin.  Depart from evil, and do good.  It pays well to live holy and clean.  Sin can and, if given the opportunity, will destroy our life.  Amen.

Psalm 37:40  And the LORD shall help them, and deliver them: he shall deliver them from the wicked, and save them, because they trust in him.

The troubles of this life in the flesh can be overwhelming.  It is the trials that test our faith in the Lord.  Many times, the trials prove that we are lagging behind in the building of a strong faith.  Our text is specifically referring to the saved by grace.  He reminds us of His promise that He will never leave us nor forsake us.  He reminds us that there is no trouble too bad that He cannot deliver us from it.  The enemy desires to destroy us.  We, the redeemed, are a threat to Hell and the evil plan of the Devil.  But the Lord God Almighty is Lord and King!  He will deliver us from the hands of the enemy.  When we cannot free ourselves, when no one else can seem to pull us free, when we have exhausted all resources, and all seems hopeless… it is the Lord who will deliver us from our distresses!!  He is our Great Deliverer!  How many of us can testify today of the Lord’s faithfulness and goodness?!  He is our salvation and hope.  He is our peace and complete consolation.  Upsets and disappointments sometimes seem to be rising as a tidal wave of destruction.  We can see it afar as it rises higher and higher.  Its magnitude looks like we will be overtaken and swept out to sea.  But our God is the Master of the sea!  He is the creator of the great waters.  It is He that moves His great hand of sovereignty over the storm and says “peace be still”.  It is the Lord that has the power to pull the plug and drain the storm waters out of our life.  Dear saved saint of God, if you find yourself in a hopeless situation, trust the Lord.  Notice our text.  He rescues those who trust in Him.  Trust is not a last minute resource.  Trust is not something we look to because nothing else seem to be working.  Trust is what we operate out of on a daily basis that proves our love for the Lord.  It is faith in action!  Our faith in Him as the Lord of our life is proven by our surrender to Him.  Trust is submitting the driving reigns to Him.  As I heard a saint of God testify a while back; it is when we do what we can and allow Him to do what He does.  Proverbs 3:5-6  Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.  In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.  Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the LORD, and depart from evil.  Our text says it well; he shall deliver them from the wicked, and save them, because they trust in him.  Amen!

Psalm 132:14 This is my rest for ever: here will I dwell; for I have desired it.

We have chosen this particular verse today as we ponder on our promise of eternal rest.  As we reside here on earth it seems as though this carnal body continually desires rest.  Sometimes it seems that we arose from a night’s sleep more tired than when we went to bed.  It is a very tiring thing to reside upon this earth.  Not only do we experience physical tiredness but also mental tiredness.  As we contend with the pace of this world, we can easily become weary in the mind.  I must say that mental exhaustion is probably the hardest tired to recover from.  The cares of the world weigh heavy upon the mind.  Dear friend we must lean on God’s grace.  We must not allow anxiousness to overtake us.  God knows all and is in control of all.  Even though it seems that many things are out of His control, He still has His controlling hand upon this earth.  He has a plan and His plan will not be altered.  We must learn what to put our hands on and what not to touch at all.  We learn this through Spiritual discernment.  Daily prayer and meditation in His Word will increase our ability to hear the voice of the Lord.  We can narrow down our list of cares dramatically by crossing out the cares that are absolutely out of our control.  If it is obvious that we cannot alter the thing ourselves then we must lean totally on His grace.  Yes, we will still be concerned about the matter and even will pray about it, but we must be careful not to allow it to overtake us.  This leads us to our verse for today.  When the trump of God blows and we are caught up in the rapture to be with our Lord in the eternal realm of His time, then we will have entered into eternal rest.  It will be total rest of the body and mind.  We will have received our glorified body and glorified bodies don’t get tired.  Hallelujah!  What a day that will be when we will experience eternal rest.  Our carnal minds cannot wrap around such a celestial thought.  Rest… eternal rest.  Praise the Lord for this soon to come forever rest.  Amen.

Proverbs 24:1  Be not thou envious against evil men, neither desire to be with them. 2 For their heart studieth destruction, and their lips talk of mischief.

As a child of God living in an ungodly society we are faced with evil every day.  Whether we work a job with evil or go to school with it or whatever our day consist of, it is present among us.  Even though this world belongs to the Lord, He is allowing sin to run its course.  Soon and very soon we are going to see the King and He will abolish this evil realm of sin.  Our verse for today gives us some advice to help keep our vessel clean.  I must remind us that He will not fill a dirty vessel.  Verse one reminds us that we are to be cautious not to allow ourselves to be envious of evil people.  Don’t desire to be what they are and to participate in what they do.  Sin looks nice, sounds nice and feels nice for a short season.  Then it unleashes its destructive blow.  These evil people our verse mentions are those who are always talking and laughing about their weekend of sin.  They are always saying they cannot wait till Friday so that they can indulge in more sin.  They tell dirty jokes hoping you will laugh at them.  My friend, these people are miserable and they paint you a picture of fun and peace.  Deep within their soul they seek true peace and joy, but are not willing to give their soul to the Lord.  They are rebels without a cause.  We must be cautious not get caught up in their sinful actions.  Mingling with these people will destroy our testimony and cause us to dirty our vessel.  Physically speaking, what if we had to wear a complete white suit of clothes today.  Can you imagine how hard it would be to keep it totally clean?  It would seem like an impossible task.  The only way to keep this white suit spotless would be to be extremely cautious with every move.  Spiritually speaking, our spirit is the same way.  We must be very careful not to get too close to dirty evil.  It will destroy our testimony.  Pay attention today.  Don’t be naïve.  There’s a lot of dirt out there.  Amen.

Psalm 55:6  And I said, Oh that I had wings like a dove! for then would I fly away, and be at rest.  7 Lo, then would I wander far off, and remain in the wilderness. Selah.

This particular chapter of Psalms is compiled and written by the Psalmist David.  The time period appears to most likely be during the time that David was running from the threats of his own son Absalom.   It is obvious that David is stressed and maybe even near depression.  He feels alone and pushed into a corner.  He has taken about all his human flesh can withstand.  He then begins to ponder on the escape of his spirit.  Even though his physical body cannot escape trouble and trial, his spirit can.  My friend, it is also so with us as born again children of God.  We may not can totally escape in our human flesh, but we have the great privilege of having the ability to temporarily escape in spirit.  It is these times of relief that play a large role in our mental sanity.  We face many troubles in this life.  We must make time to allow the scriptures to take us away for rest.  We must make time to allow the Spirit of God to take us into a realm of rest.  This is one main reason our daily time in the Word of God is so important.  This is why our times of worship is so very vital to our spiritual health.  Notice in our text that David uses the symbol of a dove as his escape.  The dove is a very important animal of symbol throughout the Bible.  The Lord uses many animals to represent many things.  He used the snake to represent the Devil.  I must say I have no fondness of the snake.  It seems as though the camel is used to represent grace.  And then the dove, it represents purity, peace and God’s presence.  In the Old Testament, the dove was the only bird that was accepted as an alternative sacrifice of purity.  It was considered a pure animal.  In Genesis, we see the dove being used greatly in the flood.  Noah sent it out to check and see if the waters had receded.  After a time, it returned with an olive branch in its mouth.  This was a sign of promise.  And then in the New Testament the dove was sent by the Lord Himself to descend upon Jesus at His baptism as a symbol of the presence of the Holy Spirit.  In our Psalm, David ponders on his ability to escape away from his troubles through the symbol of the dove.  My friend spiritual escape renews in us the promises of God.  It renews in us the purity of salvational sacrifice.  And it stirs within us the presence of the Holy Ghost.  Dear child of God, don’t underestimate the importance of daily spiritual escape.  Don’t underestimate the vitalness of the spiritual escape we receive in the times of worship.  It is no wonder the Lord stresses the importance of study and worship.  We need both in order to keep our mental sanity here on earth.  Amen.   

For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God
