King David the Teacher

Psalms 33:19-35:6

Synopsis     Psalms 33:19-35:6     9/23/2021 

As King David reflected on God. He exclaimed; My soul waits for the Lord because He helps me. 

Although he was king, David taught the people.

Specifically, David praised God publicly. He did this so the poor might hear and be encouraged. David believed that each person should look to God in order to be filled with joy. Therefore, he instructed his people to learn to savor God’s goodness. 

In this way, David challenged the people. And his challenge remains true today. Basically he said, “If you listen, then I will teach you the fear of God. Seek to do what is right and keep away from evil. If you do, then the Lord will hear you in times of distress.” 

And he continued in this vein of teaching. Accordingly he taught, “Keep in mind that even a just man will experience trouble. But if you’re faithful, God will deliver you.

However, things are different for evildoers. The evil they do ultimately destroys people deliberately do evil. Therefore, God condemns no one who trusts in Him.”  

King David the Teacher 

In today’s passage, David taught the people. Rather than simply proclaiming God’s goodness in praise, or pouring out his heart of affection, he instructed. David’s teaching made clear a few important points. First, God called David to abide in Him. But second, and perhaps more importantly, He called David to teach others how to abide.  


The goodness of God has revolutionized your life. If you find this to be true, then God has called you to share this good news. So, go share the good news! 

“A slave of the Lord should not quarrel, but should be gentle with everyone, able to teach, tolerant, correcting opponents with kindness. It may be that God will grant them repentance that leads to knowledge of the truth, and that they may return to their senses out of the devil’s snare, where they are entrapped by him, for his will.” 2Tim 2:24-26
