David’s psalms end and we read some by Asaph.
King David has similarities to the Apostle Peter.
A day of praise and worship, acknowledging God’s grace and power and majesty.
One of the main themes of today’s psalms is that God is our deliverer. If God is for us, who can be against us?
A potpourri of psalms today, including a guest psalmist…Asaph.
Our Psalm reading today runs the gamut; from the despair of feeling as if God has abandoned the psalmist, to praising Him with enthusiasm, to warning unbelievers about what awaits them, to the foolishness of relying on riches.
We find that even David, a man of great faith (and failures), had times where he felt separated from God…as if God didn’t hear his cries for help.
However, feelings are not reality.
David writes that God did hear him and rescue him. That’s a good lesson to remember when we are feeling doubts or separation.
In Titus, Paul gives advice on what a church leader’s character should be like, and in Joel we read more prophecy of the end times.
We conclude Revelation with a vision of what is in store for believers and non-believers, then begin Hosea, where we see God’s ultimate vision of forgiveness for Israel, even though she is often unfaithful.
Daniel is preserved in the den of lions, and he is given visions of some of the events of the end of time.
