DAY 361: JOURNEY THROUGH THE BIBLE IN A YEAR
Today’s journey concludes our study in the book of Psalms. Praise the Lord!
Take a moment and pray, seeking understanding for today’s reading. Read Psalms 149-150. Let’s journey!
As we conclude our 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 149-150: The author of today’s psalms are not recorded, but all are psalms of praise, or Hallelujah psalms. No praise is ever too much for the Lord. We have everything to be thankful for. (Psalms 149:1-150:6)
Read chapters 149-150, 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 reflect on this past year. What changes have you seen in your life from offering up to the Lord God at least one praise and one lament from your own life each week? With those reflections, take some time and offer up to the Lord at least one praise and one lament from your own life.
