DAY 305: 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 125-127. 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 125-127: The author of psalms 125 and 126 is not recorded. Psalm 125 is a reminder to follow the straight path of the Lord. Psalm 126 expresses joy at those who have returned to Zion, and asks that all be returned to their home. Psalm 127 was written by Solomon. In this psalm, Solomon meditates on the importance of Lord in family. (Psalms 125:1-127:5)
Read chapters 125-127 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.
