Our reading challenge for the day is Psalms 61-65. I’ll hit a few highlights. You make comments too and fill in the gaps. What strikes you as specially significant?
Psalm 61 - The place of blessed safety is not in the presence of the earthly king. The king himself looks to God as his refuge. This is the place of blessing.
Psalm 62 - Who can shake us as we look to God in faith? Nobody. Our Lord is our rock and salvation. There is no danger. There is none who can harm us as we trust in him.
Psalm 63 - Which of us can sing this Psalm wholeheartedly? We may want to seek God earnestly but life gets in the way. We want his love but we want our earthly life more. In fact only Jesus can sing this Psalm truly. May he always be pleased to put his Spirit and nature on us who believe.
Psalm 64 - When God delivers his people from trouble he protects them publicly. His enemies are caught in their own traps and brought to ruin. May we ever trust the Lord, not our own plans and our own devices.
Psalm 65 - How has God crowned his creation? With forgiveness and abundant love. No matter our need he provides life, abundant life, more than we can ever imagine.
