While meditating on Psalm 68 this morning, I found encouragement from thinking on the many descriptions of God.

  1. God is the Judge (vv. 1-3)
  2. God rides to our help (v. 4, Cf. Deut 33:26)

  4. God is a defender of the widow (v. 5b)
  5. God draws near to the lonely (v. 6)
  6. God delivers those in bondage (v. 6b)
  7. God deals with the rebellious (v. 6c)
  8. God goes before His people (vv. 7-8)
  9. God bountifully provides (vv. 9-10)
  10. God causes His enemies to flee (vv. 11-14)
  11. God frees the captives and dwells among them (vv. 15-18)
  12. God bears His children's burdens (v. 19)
  13. God alone can cause us to escape death (v. 20)
  14. God shatters His enemies (vv. 21-23)
  15. God is King (vv. 24-25)
  16. God is the fountain of Israel (vv. 26-27)
  17. God commands our strength (v. 28)
  18. God is worshipped by earthly kings (v. 29)
  19. God is a warrior (vv. 30-31)
  20. God speaks with a mighty voice (v. 33)
  21. God is awesome in majesty (v. 34)

Take time this week to read and meditate on this wonderful Psalm and all its faith-building statements about God.
