Sunday PM Study - Psalm 26Speaker:
Dr. Danny Campbell
This young convert was deeply impressed and determined to make these the rules of his life. From that day onward throughout his life he made it a rule to spend the first moments of his day alone with God and God's Word. Before he read a letter, looked at a paper or even read a telegram, he went first to the Bible, that the first impression of the day might be what he got directly from God.

Psalm 26 Worksheet
Psalm 26 is one of the Psalms of ______________________.
David asks God to ______________________ him in this situation V. 1-2
David uses 4 imperative verbs to appeal for justice in verses 1-2.
Leaders like David have so many people talking junk about them, rumors move faster than they could ever deal with them one on one. David didn’t hire a press agent, he talked to the Lord about it.
David says, “Since I trust in you, Lord, I don’t need to be all __________________ about this!”
David makes the case for his innocence and ____________________ behavior V. 3-8
There’s our two words, Hesed and Emet, together again!
If you think David is a little ‘judgy’ here, remember that this was from David’s prayer life as kind of a journal entry before it was a song to be sung.
David isn’t so much reminding God here as he is reminding _________________________ not to look for godless alternatives to faith during a difficult time.
David says, “Instead of going to the wrong kind of places, I am going to the Tabernacle and offering a sacrifice and seeking God’s face and being with people going there instead of sinful places!”
I think many times we can say that about church – “This place will keep you from sin, but sin will also keep you from this place!”
David makes clear he is staying on God’s _______________________ V. 9-12
I love how David brings it back around to a hymn –
“I have decided to follow Jesus, no turning back, no turning back!”
Good government consists in this – for a man to do to his country as much good as possible, or at least, to do it invariably no harm. -Nicias (414 BC) 1:54
Make sure your ___________________ is to bless the Lord even if your trials continue longer than you hoped they would!
