DAY 18 JOURNEY THROUGH THE BIBLE IN A YEAR
Click here for the reading
Focus Verse: Psalm 8:4

Today’s journey continues our study through the book of Psalms. All three of today’s psalms were written by King David, who expresses many emotions through his psalms, all of which are focused on the Lord.

Take a moment and pray, seeking understanding for today’s reading. Read Psalms 6-8. Let’s journey!

PsalmsPsalms 6-8: In the first penitent Psalm, King David is seeking God’s forgiveness and deliverance from the consequences of his sin. With King David in obvious distress over his enemy’s pursuit, David petitions the Lord to protect him from his enemies. David tries to understand the Lord. (Psalms 6:1-8:9)

Psalm 8 is where the focus verse of the day is taken:

what is mankind that you are mindful of them,
human beings that you care for them? (Psalm 8:4, NIV)

In this Psalm we find King David asking God why do you care for mankind in the way that you do? Why? Have you considered the question posed in Psalm 8:4? Take a few moments to pray, meditate, and reflect on your life and ask yourself this very simple, yet very difficult question: God why do you care for me so much?
