May 12, 2021, DAY 130: JOURNEY THROUGH THE BIBLE IN A YEAR: Psalms 54-56

May 12, 2021

PSALMS 54-56

The next series of Psalms share King David’s absolute reliance and trust on God’s deliverance of him from all evil.

Ask God for His understanding of Psalms 54-56. Read Psalms 54-56. 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 54-56: If you have been following along in our study of 2 Samuel, you know that King David was no different from us. King David had enemies before he was king that wanted to destroy him. King David had enemies because he was king. King David had challenges that arose from his sin. David knew he needed God’s protection and deliverance from those who wanted to harm him physically and spiritually. (Psalms 54:1-56:13)

Read chapters 54-56, 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.
