DAY 298: JOURNEY THROGH THE BIBLE IN A YEAR
Today’s journey continues our study in the book of Psalms. We continue looking at the 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 122-124. 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 122-124: Psalm 122, written by David, marvels at the peace offered by the Lord. Psalm 123, whose author is not recorded, looks to the Lord for mercy. Psalms 124, also written by David, remembers the Lord’s protection. (Psalms 122:1-124:8)
Read chapters 122-124 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.
