DAY 270: JOURNEY THROGH THE BIBLE IN A YEAR
Today’s journey continues our study of Psalms. As you are reading today’s psalms, keep in mind that these are all psalms that were sung during Passover. All these psalms are part of a collection of psalms known as the Hallel, which are expressions of thanksgiving and joy for a divine redemption.
Take a moment and pray, asking for understanding of today’s reading. Read Psalms 114-116. Let’s journey!
As we journey through the fifth and final 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 114-116: The author of today’s psalms are not recorded. Psalm 114, is a psalm of praise, remembering what the Lord has done for the Israelites. Psalm 115 is a psalm of praise, praising that we have a living God. Psalm 116 is a psalm of thanksgiving. (Psalms 114:1-116:19)
Read chapters 114-116, and ask yourself these questions: Are these psalms of lament or praise? How do you know? What do these psalms 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.
