Bible Reading Challenge Week 32 Day 3

Our reading challenge for the day is Psalms 107-113. I’ll hit a few highlights. You make comments too and fill in the gaps. What strikes you as specially significant?

Psalm 107 - God in his love raises up those who fear and trust him. Those who despise his word he will humble. He remains loving. Yet when we reject his call we may reap the consequences.

Psalm 108 - God is our great and glorious leader. He is the possessor of all. That includes those who reject him. There is no need to fear our enemies when the Lord walks with us.

Psalm 109 - This is one of our Messianic psalms, talking of Jesus’ suffering and death. Surely Jesus suffered on our behalf, in ways we have endured and in ways we have not. He is our faithful Lord.

Psalm 110 - Here is another Psalm that depicts Jesus, the one David calls Lord, the priest in the order of Melchizedek. See how Jesus is Lord for all eternity.

Psalms 111-113 - These three Psalms beg for meditation and prayer. May the Lord create in us the trust and delight that he commends here. How great our Lord is in all he does for us.
