DAY 249: JOURNEY THROUGH THE BIBLE IN A YEAR
Today our journey takes us through Psalms 105-107, where the Israelites rejoice in their deliverance; briefly, allowing sin’s lure to draw them from God.
Pray for the Lord’s understanding of Psalms 105-107. Read Psalms 105-107. Let’s journey!
As we conclude our journey through the fourth book of Psalms (Psalms 106) and begin our journey through the fifth and final book of Psalms (Psalms 107), 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 105-107: Today’s reading can simply and concisely be explained as people seeking God in time of trouble. God delivered them from their trouble. They betray God. They return to sin which leads to trouble for them again. God’s love is unfaltering – unwavering and He delivers them from their trouble once again. (Psalms 105:1-107:43)
Read chapters 105-107, 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 God? Take a moment and offer up to the Lord God at least one praise and one lament from your own life.
