Day 053: Journey Through the Bible in a Year
Focus Verses for Today: Psalms 22:1-31
Take a moment to pray for understanding of Psalms 21-23. Offer up your own psalm to the Lord. Read Psalms 21-23. Let’s journey!
Commentary: As you read the first part of Psalm 21, picture Jesus as He ascends into Heaven. He has achieved His victory and has obtained His reward. The second half describes the horrors of war. Psalm 22 is also known as the Psalm of the Cross. It is Messianic Psalm, a psalm that refers to the Messiah, Jesus Christ. The psalm can be read in two ways. The first is the obvious, as a psalm of David. The second way, gives us a deeper understanding of Jesus’ time on the cross, specifically the final seven words (or phrases) of Christ. Psalm 23 is one of the most well-known psalms of David. Through faith in the Lord, we have nothing to fear. He is there for us always, just as a shepherd is there for his sheep.
