Summer in Psalms Interactive Bible Study – June 10

This Bible study in Psalms is intended to be interactive, as a stepping stone from reading God’s Word to journaling with Him. The Discover One Thing ministry focuses on use of the SOAP method of Bible Study (Scripture, Observation, Application, Prayer) during our daily time at the feet of Jesus. To learn more, check out the “What’s SOAP?” tab above. Please read the Psalm below, let God speak to You through it, then post a response in the Comments section on our website’s home page. Your response could be any of the following related to the Psalm: scripture verse that stood out to you, observation, application, prayer, question, prayer request, or response to another’s comment. And check back to see where the conversation leads us! Together we can encourage one another and grow closer to God!

The Book of Psalms contains responses to God by individuals and the community in worship. We pray through this study that all of us will focus on the majesty of God and humble ourselves before Him in worship, no matter our circumstance.

Psalm 10

Why, Lord, do you stand far off?
    Why do you hide yourself in times of trouble?

In his arrogance the wicked man hunts down the weak,
    who are caught in the schemes he devises.
He boasts about the cravings of his heart;
    he blesses the greedy and reviles the Lord.
In his pride the wicked man does not seek him;
    in all his thoughts there is no room for God.
His ways are always prosperous;
    your laws are rejected by him;
    he sneers at all his enemies.
He says to himself, “Nothing will ever shake me.”
    He swears, “No one will ever do me harm.”

His mouth is full of lies and threats;
    trouble and evil are under his tongue.
He lies in wait near the villages;
    from ambush he murders the innocent.
His eyes watch in secret for his victims;
    like a lion in cover he lies in wait.
He lies in wait to catch the helpless;
    he catches the helpless and drags them off in his net.
10 His victims are crushed, they collapse;
    they fall under his strength.
11 He says to himself, “God will never notice;
    he covers his face and never sees.”

12 Arise, Lord! Lift up your hand, O God.
    Do not forget the helpless.
13 Why does the wicked man revile God?
    Why does he say to himself,
    “He won’t call me to account”?
14 But you, God, see the trouble of the afflicted;
    you consider their grief and take it in hand.
The victims commit themselves to you;
    you are the helper of the fatherless.
15 Break the arm of the wicked man;
    call the evildoer to account for his wickedness
    that would not otherwise be found out.

16 The Lord is King for ever and ever;
    the nations will perish from his land.
17 You, Lord, hear the desire of the afflicted;
    you encourage them, and you listen to their cry,
18 defending the fatherless and the oppressed,
    so that mere earthly mortals
    will never again strike terror.

  1. Vs 1 spoke to me.
    -Why lord do you stand off.
    why do you hide in troubled times?

    We know the Lord never leaves our side. We know that during troubled times, he hears our prayers and gives us not what we want but what we need. And that we are his beloved. The Lord asks that we have faith though and believe in the word of the bible. Those who believe what others to know what we know…that he never hides in troubled times. He is our rock if we only allow him to be and lean on him.
    I need to have faith and trust in the lord, faith and trust in my husband and faith in myself without self doubts

  3. Verse 10:17 – You, Lord, hear the desire of the afflicted; you encourage them, and you listen to their cry.

    What a gift theses Psalms are! My emotions have been a little out of sorts lately. Emotions – – one of the most difficult things to understand, deal with or even explain – what do I do with them; let alone know how or what I am really feeling. I’m finding You: stepping into my situations and giving me hope because, You’re helping me process, but better yet I’m experiencing all of this before You.

    I believe Your promise…You are King forever and ever.

  4. …just when you think you’re finished (laugh out loud). The Holy Spirit just laid verse (4) on my heart: In his pride the wicked man does not seek him; in all his thoughts there is no room for God.

    Sometimes not even thinking of God? How heart wrenching…my heart cries, don’t let the enemy win.

  5. How does God help, encourage, and defend the helpless? That’s where I can come into play. He can use me to serve Him in doing this. I just need to remain in Him for me to be used by Him. I noticed today a lot of people at Disney world taking a vacation from God while they’re at the happiest place on earth filling themselves with as much of this world as they can. I have to be extra careful not to fall into this trap too, not to find myself in a place where there is no room for God (vs 4). Thankfulness is key and so is continuing to do this study every day, remaining connected so I can be used, even on vacation. I haven’t stopped praying for you all either! This is not just a show to mark all the right good Christian boxes, this is who God designed me to be.
