Bible Reading Challenge Week 29 Day 3

Our reading challenge for the day is Psalms 31-35. I’ll hit a few highlights. You make comments too and fill in the gaps. What strikes you as specially significant?

Psalm 31 - God is our refuge, the reguge we need. We confess our frailty and God’s power and love. This is great news as we see our own weakness. The more we lay our own glory down the more we see God exalting his glory and grace.

Psalm 32 - It is as we are forgiven by God that we see his deliverance and his direction clearly. He is the one who draws people to his side so we can walk in his paths.

Psalm 33 - God looks at those who trust in him as his inheritance. He values us, guards us, seeks to increase us. How precious those who trust in Jesus are before God!

Psalm 34 - God’s love is guaranteed to all who look to him in faith. He is the one who rescues his people from every affliction.

Psalm 35 - When we meet opposition we are often afraid the Lord will not deliver us. But he has promised to be the Lord of all mercy and grace. We have no need to fear.
