Praying Psalm 31: Humbly Waiting on God


Edward F. Lundwall Jr.

Psalm 31
Humbly Waiting on God

Theme Verses: “But I trusted in thee, O LORD: I said, Thou art my God. 
My times are in thy hand” (Psalm 31:14-15a KJV)


O Father, I give thanks and praise for this record of David's overcoming faith as he faced his troubles and frustrations. The faith and comfort that you gave him are a basis for me to find hope when my heart is torn. O my LORD, I know that my flesh is as potentially evil as any man's, and that in the midst of your blessings, I can drop my guard and fall victim to sin, even as David did (1 Corinthians 10:12). It is purely by faith I take up my cross to crucify my sinful nature by reaffirming my faith union with Your Son (Luke 9:23, 24; Romans 6:1-5, 11-16; Galatians 2:20; 5:16-25). Father, I also fear my flesh, for its bent to immorality and contentiousness; its basic impulses are to be self- reliant and not to wait upon you in all things, even my service for you. Therefore, let me not only hope in your mercies that keep me from disgraceful sinning when I am too weak to resist, but in your enabling grace to overcome my sinful willing (Romans 5:20; 6:12-14, 22; Galatians 2:19-21). Give me the perseverance of your grace to enable me to keep on sowing in the Spirit, until your time of reaping is at hand (1 Corinthians 15:10; Galatians 6:9, 10).

Blessed be God, Who also will do it!

How Faith Overcomes – Part IV


Edward F. Lundwall Jr.

When, in academic circles, humanism becomes actively atheistic, the world culture aggressively aims at destroying faith, and consequently, lives. In the last four decades, the drug and sex obsessed culture has continued the pattern of self-worship. Immorality, homosexuality, and the breakdown of marriage have manifested itself in the works of the flesh resulting in over 50 million abortions, a 50% marriage failure rate, increasing gender and role confusion, and the multiple problems associated with single and same-sex parenting.

Preceding the works of the manifested works of the flesh, however, inward battles in thought and emotions take place. Matthew 12:24 (NASU) describes this: “… the mouth speaks out of that which fills the heart “(defined here as the emotional life). The popularity of counselors and psychiatrists are evidence of the battles in thought and emotions brought about by a struggle with the promptings of the flesh to act in ways that are both destructive to ones’ self and to others. Emotions alone are confusing. “The heart is more deceitful than all else and is desperately sick; who can understand it?” (Jeremiah 17:9 NASU)

Emotional life only exhibits what the mind embraces. The intellect is the place where inward and outward battles are fought and decided. Second Corinthians 10:3-5 explains, “For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh, for the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh, but divinely powerful for the destruction of fortresses. We are destroying speculations and every lofty thing that rises up against the knowledge of God, and we are taking every thought captive to the obedience of Christ.”

Most counselors and psychiatrists agree with the Bible. A person’s emotional life is formed and controlled by thought life, because when man relies simply upon his own emotional reasoning, strife and confusion result. Emotions magnify thought life. Human history bears abundant witness of this. When one relies on his own wisdom, emotional conflict results and, when one harbors on an idea that causes emotional conflict, it becomes more intense. In so doing, a person becomes the center of his own life, making himself a god. In doing so he makes his emotional ideas define perceived needs as absolute that must be met! Sometimes he gets these thoughts from or about other humans he believes can meet his needs. Satan used this mental and emotional connection when he tempted Eve: "For God knows that in the day you eat from it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil" (Genesis 3:5 NASU). Being a self-appointed god by believing that their choices were better than God’s protective boundaries (commands) led Adam and Eve to believe that that authority was rooted within their own selves. Thereby, they discounted any other source of consideration, even God's warning.

Worldly culture caters to this self-focused perception of life. Political and advertisements, for example, convey messages to persuade others to respectively vote or buy on the basis of for self-centered benefits. Invariably, all the works of the flesh are expressions of self-centeredness like a sovereign god! This results in consequences which exclude or harm others. Eve’s decision to reject God’s wisdom for the sake of following her own, led to persuading Adam to follow her delusion. This principle of reasoning has not only produced conflicts within families, but also innumerable societal problems, and wars between nations.

Yet there is hope! Sufficient cultivation of faith overcomes worldly influence. Jesus said, “In the world, you have tribulation. But, take heart, I have overcome the world.” (John 16:33) He lived out a trust in the Heavenly Father (John 5) that overcame all the hostility that the world could throw at Him. He was persuaded that what God declared (protective boundaries) was what the person who wanted to be free from the effects of world exposure must focus his life upon. Jesus replied to Satan’s worldly persuasion, “Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.” (Matthew 4:4)

This is how believer’s faith overcomes the world; he exposes and saturates his mind to the truthful ministrations of God's Word. Jesus said, “If you continue in my word, then you are truly disciples of mine, and you will know the truth, and the truth will make you free.” (John 8:31 & 32 NASU) Paul stated in Romans 10:17, “So faith comes from hearing, and hearing by the word of Christ.” “The Word” here is not the written Word, but is the Greek word for verbal transmission. This fits in the context superbly, i.e., “hearing and hearing” from the ministry of a preacher in the preceding verses 14, 15 of Romans 10. In our information age of technology, the “hearing and hearing” of God’s Word can be easily achieved through printed/written text, audio listening, and visual multimedia presentation on the Internet and television as well as in the traditional Church setting. However, we are admonished in 1 Thessalonians 5:21, to “examine everything carefully and to hold fast to that which is good.” Like the early believers of Thessalonica, we need to search the scriptures daily with open minds and heart to obey the truths we find. (Acts 17:11) Discernment is vital, since the battle of faith to overcome conformity to the standards of the world resides within the mind, choosing what to think and feel. In doing so, we will be freed from the domination of sin and its consequences (John 8:31-36; 1 John 3:9; Romans 7:23-8:5; 2 Corinthians 3:17, 18).

Praying Psalm 30

Edward F. Lundwall Jr.

Psalm 30
A Disciple’s Heart Desire


Key Verse: “I will extol thee, O LORD; for thou hast lifted me up…in his favor is life;
…weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.” (Verses 1a and 5b KJV)

O Father, I worship you this morning and poured out praise before you because of your salvation and deliverance from the dominion of sin. I thank you for giving me both the knowledge of you will and settings of my will to believe. I thank you for the joys of faith and obedience by depending upon you alone, especially in working your plan for my life to bless in the Servicemen’s Gospel Team ministry, the Poway church planting, evangelistic outreach, deliverances in the Army, and the transformation of individuals in my discipleship ministry.

O my Father, I desire so much to see the completion of my writings concerning discipleship and the blessings of your work through me. To this end I hope! To this end I seek you that my steps of faith will be completed in obeying you for the fruitful faith of people and churches! Does this not the fulfillment of your Son’s admonition to abide in Him and His Words, of being His disciple?

“Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; …so shall ye be my disciples” (John 15:8 KJV)

How Faith Overcomes, Part 3




Edward F. Lundwall Jr.

The Apostle John writes “What was from the beginning, what we have heard, what we have seen with our eyes, what we have looked at and touched with our hands, concerning the Word of Life and the life was manifested, and we have seen and testify and proclaim to you the eternal life, which was with the Father and was manifested to us what we have seen and heard we proclaim to you also, so that you too may have fellowship with us; and indeed our fellowship is with the Father, and with His Son Jesus Christ.“ (1 John 1:1-3 NASU) John and the other apostles were persuaded and convinced by what they saw revealed through living with God incarnate. Faith that overcomes that world is the result of persuasion through a personal encounter with Jesus. Persons who want to be free from the effects of world exposure must saturate their minds with the revelations found in God's Word.

Within world culture, much controversy exists about what is right and what should be the consequences of doing wrong. For example, in Islam, it is a right, even responsible, to take revenge for perceive wrongs. Tribal strife in Africa and North Ireland illustrate the warning in Galatians 5:15: “... you bite and devour one another, take care that you are not consumed by one another.” Much of this strife is revenge for violation of perceived wrongs. As America and the Middle East drift further from biblical influence, revenge as a pattern of “right “conduct becomes more apparent dependent on local circumstances. Prominent in poorer ethnic sections in large urban areas, it is exemplified in competitive gangs and in organized crime circles.

The Bible calls these revenge responses of our natural sinful nature “deeds of the flesh.” “Now are evident, which are enmities, strife, jealousy, outbursts of anger, disputes, dissensions, factions…” (Galatians 5:19-20 NASU) Although this world’s variety of cultural systems try to clarify these matters as a whole, the multiple and often contradictory responses or proclamations of what is “right” or “responsible” result in confusion, pain, suffering, and maladjustment.

The biblical view found in James 4:1-4 goes to the heart of this situation: “What is the source of quarrels and conflicts among you? Is not the source your pleasures that wage war in your members? You lust and do not have; so you commit murder. You are envious and cannot obtain; so you fight and quarrel. You do not have because you do not ask. You ask and do not receive, because you ask with wrong motives, so that you may spend it on your pleasures. You adulteresses, do you not know that friendship with the world is hostility toward God?”

Indeed, ignorance of God’s Word promotes strife by allowing an individual to feed his/her own sinful desires through cultural influences that justify them. Whereas the study and saturation of biblical revelation in an individual’s life transforms these desires to other centeredness, ignorance encourages the self-centered search for emotional satisfaction from sources outside of the persuasion of the Lord’s revelation.

I John 1:5-2:6 explains the process of a faith that overcomes as the process of transformation from self-centered living to other-centered living. John explains that there is no confusion or darkness when one pursues a relationship with God through faith in Christ. “…God is light, and in him is no darkness at all. If we say we have fellowship with him while we walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth. But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus his Son cleanses us from all sin” (5-7). John clarifies that faith is an ongoing relational process when he writes, “If we say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us…But if anyone does sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous. He is the propitiation for our sins, and not for ours only but also for the sins of the whole world” (1:8-2:2).

John goes on to explain the process of transformation through obedience of faith, through the saturation of God’s revelation. “By this we know that we have come to know him, if we keep his commandments…whoever keeps his word, in him truly the love of God is perfected; by this we may know that we are in him; whoever says he abides in him ought to walk in the same way in which he walked” (2:3-6). The faith that overcomes is the faith that moves from a self-centered life to a self-sacrificing love for others like that of Jesus.

Praying Psalm 29


Edward F. Lundwall Jr.

God’s Glory and Power
Seen in Nature

Key Verses: Give unto the LORD the glory due unto his name; worship the LORD in the beauty of holiness. The voice of the LORD is upon the waters: the God of glory thunders. The LORD is upon many waters. (Ps. 29: 2,3 NKJV)

O Father, I worship and thank you as this psalm reminds me that you deserve my adoration based on Nature's obvious display of your power. There are times when spiritual warfare is so strong that my faith needs the obvious reminders found in nature that you are and are abiding beyond this little world and especially, my earthly sojourn. How great it is to see the evidences that you are the Abiding One Who is the Cause and Sustainer of the Heavens, the Sea, and the Earth. What security to know and feel the evidence that after the gross failures of your people, you still abide and sustain those who hope in you! Your callings and gifts are never recalled (Romans 11:29). You have demonstrated your enduring promises in the example of Israel! For although she has played the whoring wife and for two thousand years has rejected your beloved Son and the salvation He died to provide, yet according to your prophets, you restored the nation back to the land you promised them (Zechariah 12). You will also restore the remnant of Abraham and David’s household in spirit as well as in the flesh (Romans 11:23-25). You will bring them to faith by the glorious appearing of the Lord Jesus Christ. You will fill the sky as with lightening as you raise your children from land and sea to live in your presence forever. How powerful and mighty and merciful you are!

How Faith Overcomes, Part 2


Edward F. Lundwall Jr.

The Apostle John identifies the world as that which believers must resist and overcome. Persuasion is the instrument which leads to slavery to sin, but revelation leads to the obedience of faith. From the beginning sin was the result of Satan's persuasion, and faith was the result of believing God’s declarations. The world remains the face to face battleground. The dominant cultural systems are controlled by Satan (Ephesians 2:3; 1 John 2:15, 16; Matthew 4:8).

Faith can overcome temporal world influences through persuasive God-given influences (Romans 10:17; Ephesians 6:10-18a). Faith gets its power from God's revelations through both natural revelation (Psalms 19:1-6), the special revelation of the Bible (Psalms 19:7, 8; 2 Timothy 3:16, 17), and God's inward testimony within man of His reality and moral standards (John 1:9; Romans 1:18-20; 2:14, 15).

Since man is born into constant exposure to the world, so the influence for faith must be individualized (Romans 10:13-17) Psalm 2 describes the world’s cultural attitudes well: “Why are the nations in an up-roar, and the peoples devising a vain thing? The kings of the earth take their stand and the rulers take counsel together against the LORD and against His Anointed saying, "Let us tear their fetters apart and cast away their cords from us!" (Verses 1-3) Individual faith that overcomes is the result of persuasive processes that encourage trust in God that is strong enough to be effective in combating these kinds of attitudes on a daily basis.

The Greek word for faith comes from the word to persuade. The classic scriptural illustration is the life of Abraham (Romans 4:11, 12). God persuaded Abraham with promises and challenging circumstances to actively demonstrate trust in God. When Isaac asks where the sacrifice on the mountain would be obtained, Abraham responds, “God will provide.” At the same time that Abraham is acting in obedience to the Lord’s request to sacrifice his most prized and promised possession, Isaac, he stands persuaded that God and his divine promises (e.g. great nations would come through him through his son Isaac) are totally trustworthy in all He does, asks, or requires.

How does God persuade human beings to develop this kind of overcoming faith and establish such spiritual trust in whom they cannot see? God provides successive influences which, when utilized, stimulates an overcoming faith. If neglected, faith is stymied. At whatever place that human beings stop using God's provisions, God is not obligated to give any more. Yet, because of his loving grace, God often uses godly people to stimulate many who have stopped accepting God's past persuasions.

Strange as it may seem, the first part our Bible does not talk explicitly about faith, but describes faith by the examples obedience that faith produces. These are simulations which show processes by which God persuades humans toward faith. The key verse for this study comes from 1 John 4:9b, which says, “God sent his only son into the world, so that we might live through him.” Therefore, it is logical to study how faith overcomes the world cultural system within the context of this Epistle. As some have said, “A text out of context is a pretext which is false reasoning used to hide the real reasoning.”

1 John 1:1-4 (ESV): “Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, for many false prophets have gone out into the world. By this you know the Spirit of God: every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God, and every spirit that does not confess Jesus is not from God. This is the spirit of the antichrist, which you heard was coming and now is in the world already. Little children, you are from God and have overcome them, for he who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.”

While God created humans with an innate need to worship, the world's cultures, controlled by Satan, are ignorant of saving faith. Indeed, starting with self worship (Genesis 3:5, 6), the world cultures promote all sorts of idols and idolatrous worship systems. Many of world religions are tools in the hands of secular rulers to manipulate their people. Karl Marx was correct in describing these non-biblical religions as an “opiate” to give false hope and feelings of security which then allows them to be controlled and submissive to their leaders.

Some worldly cultures even promote the attitude of ambiguous worship of an “unknown god” like the Greek philosophers on Mars Hill or “the impersonal life force” of the New Age Movement. Many, even in America, have an “unknown god” often described as the “Man upstairs!” Sadly, many Americans think that their “man upstairs” is the Christian-biblical God. This displays ignorance for they are have not really sought God (Acts 17:27; Jeremiah 29:13).

As with many of the New Testament Epistles, John is writing to immature and largely ungrounded believers. They have been saturated by the ignorance promoted by the cultures in which they have existed until their first acknowledgement of God’s revelation of Himself. John’s purpose is to give them a foundational basis of faith to know for certain a full assurance of salvation (1 John 5:10-13). In a detailed way, he is repeating what he heard from John the Baptist: "Behold, the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!” (John 1:29). Biblical faith is the expression of worship of the Triune God revealed by revelation and centered in the Person of the Lord Jesus Christ. Revelation-based faith overcomes “worship in ignorance” (Acts 17:23).

Prayer for the Nation




For Our Country.
ALMIGHTY God, who hast given us this good land for our heritage; We humbly beseech thee that we may always prove ourselves a people mindful of thy favor and glad to do thy will. Bless our land with honorable industry, sound learning, and pure manners. Save us from violence, discord, and confusion; from pride and arrogance, and from every evil way. Defend our liberties, and fashion into one united people the multitudes brought hither out of many kindreds and tongues. Endue with the spirit of wisdom those to whom in thy Name we entrust the authority of government, that there may be justice and peace at home, and that, through obedience to thy law, we may show forth thy praise among the nations of the earth. In the time of prosperity, fill our hearts with thankfulness, and in the day of trouble, suffer not our trust in thee to fail; all which we ask through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Psalm 27: Waiting on the Lord


Psalm 27

Key verse: Wait on the Lord; Be of good courage, and He shall strengthen thine heart: Wait, I say, on the Lord. (Ps. 27:14)

O LORD, I thank and praise you that you are a Father to me by faith in your Person and dependence upon your Son and his saving sacrifice on the cross (1 Corinthians 15:1-4). I worship you in the Spirit with no confidence in the flesh. Why would I want to remain in darkness when you are my Light? How can I be lost or suffer when you are my salvation?

LORD, let me seek and find your countenance of blessing by both dependence on and fellowship with you that your ultimate blessings, even in this life, may come upon me. I desire that men and angels may see that you are manifestly reward those who continue to fellowship with you and seek you with all their hearts, especially in the midst of life’s hardships.

Is it not your will to seek glory from those you have created and redeemed? Help me to continually recognize Your Spirit’s leading in my prayers that I may not fall into praying according to my own desires, but according to Your Spirit’s promptings. For my desire is as the Psalmist declares in verse 4: “One thing have I desired of the LORD, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the LORD, and to inquire in his temple.” (KJV)

Help me daily find that secret place where you alone are my life’s portion so that I can rest secure from life’s storms and enemies’ eyes. As you teach me the paths of righteousness, honesty and faith, give me a patient heart to see the fruitfulness only you can bring. Strengthen me with a certain faith that my sowing in the realm of Your Spirit will produce harvest in my lifetime (Verse 8).

O LORD, let me dwell where you abide,
Let my hand be in yours,
That you may lead me into the pastures green,
And to the refreshing waters still,
Defend and restore my soul for Your Name’s sake!

Place Your Word in my mouth,
That when I speak overflowing praise,
Your Name exalted and glorified may be.
Fill me with Your Spirit that when others hear,
You will receive a hundred- fold harvest of glory!
