DAY 60: JOURNEY THROGH THE BIBLE IN A YEAR
Today, we continue our journey through the book of Psalms. Our journey today, leads us to three psalms written by King David. What a relationship he must have had with the Lord!
Take a few minutes to seek the Lord’s guidance for today, and understanding of today’s journey through Psalms. Today our journey is taking us through Psalms 24-26, which were written by King David.
In this, the first book of Psalms, the majority of the psalms are written by King David. Throughout the book of Psalms, nearly every psalm can be classified as a psalm of Lament or a psalm of praise. A lament is cry to the Lord, asking Him to do something, most often when we are in pain, confused, or angry. A psalm of praise is a prayer of joy and celebration, thanking the Lord for His work.
Psalms 24-26: These three Psalms have a simple theme. These three Psalms share the objective of King David’s life. King David understood that God created everything. King David understood that there is no power greater than God. King David understood that seeking to know God, truly seeking God, demanded a relationship with God. King David knew that a genuine relationship with God required submission to God and changes in his life. King David, an imperfect man, genuinely knew God. (Psalms 24:1-26:12)
Read chapters 24 through 26, and ask yourself these questions: Are these psalms of lament or praise? How do you know? What deeper understanding of David is provided through these psalms? Take a moment and offer at least one praise and one lament from your own life.
