I just finished an amazing journey through Psalm 124-127. You can read about this journey at this link. As I step ahead on this journey through the Bible, the next adventure will take me to Psalm 128-131. 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.
What is the foundation of God’s blessings? List in your own words the blessings of God. Note the different aspects of life that are covered. In what ways can a lack of personal godliness lead a country to ruin?
What positive thought comes through in this psalm? What about God’s character is seen through all these troubles? How should this knowledge of God’s character affect your feelings about your past? Change your daily living in the present?
What are the psalmist’s concerns in verses 1-4? What characteristics of God lead you to have hope? What effect do you have on others when you are in the depths? What is involved in “waiting” in your life?
How would you characterize David’s attitude toward himself? When does he begin to hope in the Lord? How can you begin to demonstrate humility and honesty toward God?
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.
