There were some great lessons learned over the last few weeks in studying Psalm 91-93. One is that with God we can take courage and step out into the unknown because the angels are near. We can resist fear and master fear like David; taking on our giants because the voice of truth encourages us to live in new and adventurous ways.
Along life’s path, there are times of difficulty where we struggle to keep our heads above water but the good news is that we have our heavenly Father’s shoulders to hold onto. He helps us live an effective life as we learn to internalize the fruits of the Spirit by being committed to Him and praying.
The journey now takes us into Psalm 94-96. I’m looking forward to using the momentum being gained each day to keep our faith strong, our hope firm, and our love overflowing. It will take a disciplined continuous effort but the benefits will be enormous. Below are the planned readings along with questions for reflection that will help as I share over the upcoming posts.
Why does God allow wickedness to prosper? What will ultimately prevail? How are righteous and wicked people described here?
Enumerate the aspects of God which make him praiseworthy. What warning is inserted into the congregational worship? When does it become difficult to praise God? How does He respond to our reluctance?
What aspects of God are being praised? How does nature participate in the praise? How do you relate this sense of praise to your friends?
