Over the last few weeks, I’ve been looking at ways to apply the word found in Psalms 58-63 and sharing some thoughts that not only can benefit you now but also help the next generation too! The greatest of all possessions one can hand off to future generations are the guiding principles taught from the Word of God.
A main thought from reading Psalm 58 is that life is not always fair but you can be a part of creating a better future by first going to God in prayer and listening to the voice of truth. This voice will lay out a level path so the race can be run fairly. The advantage will then belong to the righteous for securing daily wins that lead to final victory.
In life, there are all these negative emotions like jealousy, fear, frustration, and anxiety. They become our enemies but a lesson from Psalm 59 is that the more we have hope for brighter days ahead, the more our frame of mind contributes to favorable conclusions. That’s one benefit of reading the Bible. We read about how God’s power and mercy releases negative emotions, so a load is lifted as we step ahead along the journey.
Noted after reading Psalm 60 is that the nation of Israel had been slipping and suffered defeat after defeat until David began to pray and provide the leadership they needed. This day, let us be disciplined enough to go to God in prayer, work the plan, and be patient as God sets things up for the plan to be carried out.
David was at a turning point as brought out in Psalm 61. A thought from reading this passage was the need to take advantage of the opportunities each day brings to go to God in prayer and dream big dreams together. With God’s helping hand along with some trustworthy friends to assist, these aspirations can become reality.
A takeaway from Psalm 62 is the need to pray. God is interested in our future and that’s why He sent a Savior. If we desire to be a blessing to others by telling them about God’s love, it will come to pass that we will be blessed in abundance.
A thought from reading Psalm 63 is how much spiritual treasure is available because of technology today which allows us to always stay connected for spiritual pick-me-ups at anytime and anyplace. The Internet makes it easy to look up Bible verses and receive inspiration from other bloggers. Also, with opportunities to start or end the day listening to worship songs or share with friends.
