Summer in the Psalms Livestream


Psalms, the longest book in the bible, contains poems that touch every human emotion. It has been organized into five books, and contains many smaller “collections” such as the Psalms of Ascent (Ps. 120-134) and the Hallel Psalms (Ps. 111-118). Psalm 1 serves as an introduction to the book, advising the reader of the clear advantage of gaining a blessed life by meditating “day and night” (Ps. 1:2) in God’s Word. Many, if not most, of the Psalms are prayerfully directed toward God: “Answer me when I call, God” (Ps. 4:1), “Listen to my words, Lord” (Ps. 5:1), “Lord do not rebuke me in Your anger” (Ps. 6:1O).

At the heart of Psalms, is the worship of God. There are numerous reasons cited to engage in worship. For example, He is worshipped for His magnificence: “Lord, our Lord, how magnificent is your name throughout the earth!” (Ps. 8:1), for His glory in creation: “The heavens declare the glory of God, and the expanse proclaims the work of his hands” (Ps. 19:1), for His provided victory: “Lord, the king finds joy in your strength. How greatly he rejoices in your victory” (Ps. 21:1), and for His wondrous works “Sing to Him, sing praise to Him; tell about all His wondrous works!” (Ps. 105:2).
