90 Days Through The Bible: Day 40-Psalm 1-30

I fell behind in my reading. I think the days of staying up late and trying to do everything finally caught up with me, so even though yesterday I started my reading, i did not finish it until today and that is okay.  Reading the Bible in 90 days is ambitious, especially when you work, and have a family, so I have chosen to give myself some grace.

The Psalms are a collection of songs, hymns and poems, most of which were written by David. There is a lot of wisdom, worship and instruction written in those passages. I took the approach of summarizing each one in a sentence for my notes. I hope that I can continually use the Psalms to continue to bear fruit by studying His law.

  • 22: I trust in You, Lord, even when I cannot find You, protect me from my enemies.
  • 23: David compares the Lord to a shepard who protects and cares for His flock.
  • 24: The earth is His creation, let us worship His glory.

Help me to remember:

to seek You for You are my rock and my protector!

Lord, I ask that . . .

through Your salvation that you deliver me from the fate of the wicked!

Heavenly Father, I am thankful for . . .

Psalm 15, for the guidance of what my character should look like when I walk with You!
