Over 13 weeks we’re going on a journey through the song book of the Scriptures, the Psalms.
As we will see, time spent contemplating and praying through the Psalms is a deeply effective way to develop intimacy with God, and instructs our souls how we can respond to God in all things.
No matter our joys or our struggles, the Psalms guide us in how we approach God in the ups and downs, the ebbs and flows of life. These 150 chapters are songs, poems, and prayers which are a beautiful window into the soul of God. They are richly themed, ranging from thanksgiving, praise, wisdom, repentance, and confession. There are Psalms that were sung by God’s people, celebrating various victories and joyous moments in communities and individually.
The Psalms serve as a conductor guiding the song of our soul into harmony with the heart of God. Ultimately they teach us who God is.
