Questions for Reflection – Psalm 124 – 127

I just finished an amazing journey through Psalm 120-123. You can read about this journey at this link. As I continue the journey through the Bible, the next adventure will take me to Psalm 124-127. Over the next few weeks, I will be posting about the journey and will use the questions below to help focus on each passage. Feel free to respond with a short note or a comment about any of these questions. Also, I welcome any other thoughts or ideas, favorite inspirational videos, photos, or favorite Bible verses. Just add them to the comments or to a Facebook page I’ve set up at this link: This Day With God.

Psalm 124
Passage Lookup
In what ways are the Israelites dependent upon God? What contrast does the psalmist make in verse 2? What real situations might the psalmist be recalling (See Verse Ne. 6:15-16, Isa. 37:33-38)? 

Psalm 125
Passage Lookup
In what sense is God like the mountains? Contrast the psalmist’s solid trust in God with his keen awareness of the dangers of sin. How can you experience this balance in daily living? 

Psalm 126
Passage Lookup
What relationship does this rejoicing have to the history of Israel (See Ezra 3:10-13)? What is the people’s reaction to victory and deliverance? How do you react to good times in relationships, character development, studies and work? Who gets the credit?

Psalm 127
Passage Lookup
What two activities mentioned are done in vain? Why? What does this show about the integral relationship between God and people? Why do we have families? Why not?

The above reading plan will be used as I share over the next few posts. It’s important to have a plan. I’m thankful that Jesus is God’s plan for us and by accepting Him as Savior; we have taken the steps necessary to make this day with Him amazing! At this link: God’s Plan for Us, is a post about accepting God’s plan or reaffirming our “YES” for Christ.
