DAY 291: JOURNEY THROGH THE BIBLE IN A YEAR
Today’s journey continues our study in the book of Psalms. Today’s psalms begin a series of Songs of Ascents. These psalms (songs) were sang by pilgrims on their journey to Jerusalem for holy feasts.
Take a moment and pray, seeking understanding for today’s reading. Read Psalms 120-121. 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 120-121: The author of today’s psalms is not recorded. Psalm 120, calls upon the Lord during a time of distress. Psalm 121 acknowledges the protection given by the Lord. (Psalms 120:1-121:8)
Read chapters 120-121, and ask yourself these questions: Are these psalms of lament or praise? How do you know? What does 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.
