David Murray

Pastor Doug was a sensitive man with a big heart for the lost. But he struggled with preaching about God’s anger and God’s judgment. If he ever preached on divine judgment, he tended to apologize for it. As a godly man, he was ashamed of his shame. One day, he shared his struggle with one of his elders. His elder took him to Psalm 9 to help him shed his shame. 

There, he saw that although some Psalms lament the persecution of the wicked, this Psalm rejoices in the judgment of the wicked. The celebratory tone is set is the opening verses: “I will give thanks to the Lord with my whole heart; I will recount all of your wonderful deeds. I will be glad and exult in you; I will sing praise to your name, O Most High” (1-2). Why is he celebrating? He’s celebrating for two reasons.
