DAY 151: JOURNEY THROUGH THE BIBLE IN A YEAR
In Psalms 63-65, the reader finds King David proclaiming the wonders of the Lord.
Ask God for His understanding of Psalms 63-65. Read Psalms 63-65. Let’s journey!
As we journey through the second book of Psalms, remember that 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 63-65: Today, the psalmist writes about worship, praise and expectation. King David sought the Lord relentlessly. Not because the Lord was far from him; but, because the Lord cannot be fully understood. King David sought to develop a relationship with the Lord, which would prompt the Lord to reveal more of Himself to King David. King David knew he had to seek the Lord relentlessly and worship Him wholeheartedly. He also knew the Lord would provide for his needs. King David also understood that only the Lord actually knew what his needs were. (Psalm 63:1-65:13)
Read chapters 42-44, and ask yourself these questions: Are these psalms of lament or praise? How do you know? What does this psalm teach you about the Lord? Take a moment and offer at least one praise and one lament from your own life.
