DAY 256: JOURNEY THROUGH THE BIBLE IN A YEAR
Our reading for today, Psalms 108-110, are three psalms written by David.
Ask God for His understanding of Psalms 108-110. Read Psalms 108-110. Let’s journey!
As we journey through the fifth 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 108-110: In Psalm 108, David is praising God and thanking Him for all that He has given King David. In Psalm 109, David is seeking out help and protection from the Lord. David is also asking that justice be served, however, David wants all the honor to go to the Lord. Psalm 110 is a prophetic psalm, looking forward to the day when the Lord will defeat His enemies, those who deny and reject Him, and rules over the earth. (Psalms 108:1-110:7)
Read chapters 108-110, 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.
