Celebrating God given victories

Psalm 21

Establishing the Need: How do you relate to the spiritual leaders in your life?

 

Purpose: In this study we shall see two imperative from Psalm 21 so that we are thankful of what God is doing and will do.

  1. Rejoicing in past victories from God (v.1-6)
  2. Anticipate future final triumph of God (v.7-13)

 

Introductory matters

  • This is written by David as the subscript states: “For the choir director. A Psalm of David.
  • Psalm 21 is a “royal psalms” because its subject matter involves the king of Israel and what he does militarily.[1]
  • Psalm 21 is related to Psalm 20.
  • Both Psalms 20 and 21 emphasize victory and ultimately salvation (20:5, 6, 9; 21:1, 5).[2]
  • Both psalms[3]:
  • Refer to the “king” (20:9; 21:1, 7)
  • Speak of the king’s “heart’s desire” (20:4; 21:2) and request (“petition,” 20:5;“request,” 21:2)
  • Identify the right hand of the LORD as accomplishing the king’s deliverance (20:6; 21:8)
  • Celebrate the LORD’s strength/power (20:6; 21:1, 13)
  • According to Dr. Barrick: “Psalm 21 is the prayer of thanksgiving for the victory granted by God in answer to the prayer in Psalm 20 for the king’s victory in battle.”[4]
    Specifically Psalm 21:1-6 looks back at the requests in Psalm 20 and give thanks for God answering that prayer.[5]

For today’s post we will tackle the question the Skeptic Annotated Bible asked: Who drove the Anakim from Hebron?

Here are the two answers which the skeptic believes indicate a Bible contradiction:

Joshua

Then Joshua came at that time and cut off the Anakim from the hill country, from Hebron, from Debir, from Anab and from all the hill country of Judah and from all the hill country of Israel. Joshua utterly destroyed them with their cities.” (Joshua 11:21)

Caleb

Now he gave to Caleb the son of Jephunneh a portion among the sons of Judah, according to the command of the Lord to Joshua, namely, Kiriath-arba, Arba being the father of Anak (that is, Hebron). 14 Caleb drove out from there the three sons of Anak: Sheshai and Ahiman and Talmai, the children of Anak.” (Joshua 15:13-14)

(All Scriptural quotation comes from the New American Standard Bible)

Here’s a closer look at whether or not there is a contradiction:

Jim Warner Wallace.  Cold-Case Christianity for Kids.  Colorado Springs, CO: David C. Cook, October 1st 2016. 127 pp.

4 out of 5

Purchase: Amazon

This is an apologetics’ book geared towards kids.  The publisher labeled the book as Juvenile Nonfiction.  Technically it’s actually a book that lets the readers enter a fictional story of being a cadet in a “Cadet Academy” analogous to the Police Explore program (where kids have the opportunity to understand how the police work) but with a twist: the detective teaching the class also present reasons why Christianity is a faith that is true.  The author is Jim Warner Wallace who in real life has worked for decades as a police officer and cold-case detective.  As a detective he became a Christian when he started to look into Christianity.  With his background he applied his detective skills in evaluating and later defending the Christian worldview.  There’s definitely a lot of good illustrations, examples and analogy that detective Wallace draws upon to make his point throughout the book.  I read this aloud to my daughters and they enjoyed this book more than I expected (my oldest is eight and youngest is four).

Paul Tautges and Karen Tautges. Help! My Toddler Rules the House. Wapwallopen, PA: Shepherd Press, June 30th 2014. 64 pp.

5 out of 5

Purchase: Amazon

Are you looking for a book concerning how to parent young children biblically?  Specifically with the issue of toddlers’ problem of whining, misbehavior and being out of control?  This counseling “mini-books” is immensely helpful on this topic.  I highly recommend it to parents and those who minister to young parents.  Like the other three booklets I read in this series this one also turned out to be very useful.
