Psalm 14For some reason, the fool often is connected with mistreating the poor. Perhaps the poor come up because they have no place to turn but to God for refuge. And the fool often thinks he can get away with what he wants with them because the fool doesn't see God's protection. Edwin and Andrew discuss what it means to take refuge in God and why you don't have to be poor to do so, but it may help.Read the written devo that goes along with this episode by clicking here.   Let us know what you are learning or any questions you have.

Psalm 14Psalm 14 isn't necessarily talking about the avowed atheist. It also includes the practical atheist. In other words, there are some people who will verbally claim belief in God, but they live like there isn't one. Or, they live like His existence is inconsequential. And that is demonstrated in no place greater than in prayer. I may claim to believe in God, but if I don't pray, I am just like the fool in Psalm 14. Edwin and Andrew talk about this kind of practical atheism.Read the written devo that goes along with this episode by clicking here.   Let us know what you are learning or any questions you have.

Psalm 14So, the fool says in his heart that there is no God. Well, I've never done that, so I'm not a fool. Wait! What? You're saying no one has done good? But I'm someone. Are you saying that I'm a fool? How dare you! Edwin and Andrew delve into the part of the psalm that often gets ignored. All Christians love to throw up vs. 1 to all those "fools" out there, but miss that the rest of the psalm says we are all in the same boat.Read the written devo that goes along with this episode by clicking here.   Let us know what you are learning or any questions you have.

Psalm 14What does the Fool say? Ring, ding, ding...Okay, sorry. Couldn't help myself. Of course, the fool says that there is no God. At least that's what David tells us. In this episode, Edwin and Andrew dig into the fool and what this means about him or her.Read the written devo that goes along with this episode by clicking here.   Let us know what you are learning or any questions you have.

Psalm 13Despite all the fears and emotions David is facing, he maintained faith. He remembered that God had dealt bountifully with him. He remembered God's own declaration of His steadfast love and decided God was trustworthy. He would keep leaning on God even in this time when he didn't understand God's actions. Edwin and Andrew talk about the overcoming faith that is victorious even in these kinds of dark times.Read the written devo that goes along with this episode by clicking here.   Let us know what you are learning or any questions you have.

Psalm 13Did David start with his biggest fear or has he been building up to it? We don't know. But we do know for many of us, this last fear is the biggest. David fears the ridicule of the enemies. We hate to be made fun of and mocked. Edwin and Andrew spend sometime in this episode discussing how we can face ridicule and bring glory to God through it.Read the written devo that goes along with this episode by clicking here.   Let us know what you are learning or any questions you have.

Psalm 13David's second fear in Psalm 13 is the fear of defeat. Like so many, David didn't want to lose. Edwin and Andrew help us process our own fears of defeat, why we can overcome those fears, and why we need to keep on "playing the game."Read the written devo that goes along with this episode by clicking here.   Let us know what you are learning or any questions you have.

Psalm 13When David feels isolated and alone, he portrays three huge fears. The first is the fear of death. We can be afraid of death. But we don't need to be. Edwin and Andrew spend some time talking about the fact that we often fear death and what to do about it when we do. But they also spend some time talking about why and how we Christians can overcome our fear of death.Read the written devo that goes along with this episode by clicking here.   Let us know what you are learning or any questions you have.

Psalm 13Satan wants you to believe you are the very first and only follower of God to feel abandoned and alone. He wants you to think that no one else ever felt like you do on your bad days. He wants you to be so upset about it that you abandon God. But the Bible doesn't sell you a bill of goods. The Bible doesn't claim that all of life is daisies and buttercups for God's people. Edwin and Andrew dig into Psalm 13 to see what to do in those moments when life is really, really tough even for God's people.Read the written devo that goes along with this episode by clicking here.   Let us know what you are learning or any questions you have.

Psalm 12We have examined the layers of this psalm from its outer limits to its central point. But there is that outlier statement at the beginning. And digging into that brings about the most exciting Text Talk episode to date. We know we said that yesterday, but today really does top even that. What's more, it's EPISODE 200!!!!! Yay!!!!Thanks for being with us to this magnificent milestone.Read the written devo that goes along with this episode by clicking here. Let us know what you are learning or any questions you have.

Psalm 12Having peeled back all the layers, we finally arrive at the center of the Psalm. The psalmist's message is launched like a spear tip. For eight psalms, the psalmist has been asking the Lord to arise. He finally says He's going to do it, right in the middle of this psalm.It's the most exciting Text Talk episode to date.

Psalm 12A third layer of the psalm, peeling from the beginning and the end, brings us to a contrast. On the one hand, we have the false confidence of the liars in their own words. On the other, we have God's Word which has been refined seven times. But what does that mean? Edwin and Andrew help us understand why we can trust God and His Word, and also why we should not put our trust in the words of men.Read the written devo that goes along with this episode by clicking here.   Let us know what you are learning or any questions you have.

Psalm 12As we peel back the layers of Psalm 12, even though David feels alone and isolated, though he feels no one is serving the Lord but himself, he knows that God will protect him. God will judge the liars. His prayer seems a bit violent, and that bothers us, but Edwin and Andrew talk about the imprecation and what that really means for us and our praying. It is great that we can trust God to do what is right in judgment.Read the written devo that goes along with this episode by clicking here.   Let us know what you are learning or any questions you have.

Psalm 12David feels alone. There are no more godly in the land. He is by himself serving the Lord. Of course, that is not true at all. There were always faithful supporters of David. But this is what it felt like. Have you ever felt completely alone?

The fourth foundation, and we make no claim that this week's list of foundations is exhaustive, should give us all hope. The Lord loves the upright. He will be merciful, gracious, forgiving, and steadfast with those who turn to Him. He will not clear the guilty, but He will forgive the penitent who seek Him and love Him. Edwin and Andrew discuss this love for the upright.Read the written devo that goes along with this episode by clicking here.   Let us know what you are learning or any questions you have.

Psalm 11Foundation #3 is the Lord's own righteousness. However, our view of God's righteousness may not be exactly what the Bible means. Edwin and Andrew discuss what the Psalmist means when he claims God is righteous and what a powerful foundation that really is for us!Read the written devo that goes along with this episode by clicking here.   Let us know what you are learning or any questions you have.

Psalm 11Foundation #2 is a shocking one. One of the reasons things go from bad to worse even while the righteous pray for God's deliverance and judgment is because He tests everyone, including the righteous. This testing is for our good.

Psalm 11The wicked heart whispers that God doesn't see and doesn't take into account. But a foundation that keeps the righteous faithful is knowing that no matter what it looks like in the moment, the Lord does see. The Lord does take account. The foundations are not actually shattered. Edwin and Andrew talk about this great foundation that helps us stay faithful to the Lord even when things seem to be just getting worse.Read the written devo that goes along with this episode by clicking here.   Let us know what you are learning or any questions you have.

Psalm 11Most commentators suggest David was being given the literal advice to flee to the mountains, but he decided he wouldn't do it. The big problem with this is David always fled to the mountains. He fled to the mountains when Saul was chasing him. He fled to the mountains when Absalom rebelled. So, what is actually going on here. Edwin and Andrew discuss what "fleeing to the mountains" is really all about and how we need to trust in God as our mountain, our refuge, our fortress.Read the written devo that goes along with this episode by clicking here.   Let us know what you are learning or any questions you have.

Psalm 10Psalm 9 and 10 end on the same note. People need to realize they are just people. We are mere mortals. We need to realize that anyone who attacks us is only human. They are, as Warren Wiersbe calls them, merely "Earth Dwellers." We need to be Heaven Dwellers. And our King is The Heaven Dweller. We have nothing to fear.Read the written devo that goes along with this episode by clicking here. Let us know what you are learning or any questions you have.
