Sometimes all we need is to be reminded of a promise the Lord has given to us, and other times we need to remind ourselves who God is. The Psalms give us a glimpse into the life of David – a man after God’s own heart who sought Him in all things. David presented every trial and heartache to God as he spent time in prayer. As we read through the Psalms we even see how he reminded himself of God’s good character and how he adjusted his perspective and prayers out of his confidence in God. Through these songs we see how, although he was afflicted with much, David trusted the Lord above all else.
The recommended reading for this week is Psalms 2-7. Pay special attention to how David ends each Psalm. May we learn to bring all things before the Lord and trust Him as David did.
