Daily Bible Reading: Psalms 10 – 12
Verse of the Day: Psalm 10:1 – “Why standest thou afar off, O Jehovah? Why hidest thou thyself in times of trouble?”
As we read through the Psalms this month (and following) we learn very quickly that they are statements of human emotions. They are not carefully crafted discourses on theological issues (although there is nothing that is contrary to the truth of God) they are the deep emotional utterances that compass all areas of the human condition.
We will find the highest praise and the lowest depths of despair. We will find pain and joy. We will discover a man’s doubts and man’s confidences in the Almighty. God is praised, extolled, complained to, lifted in joy, lost in despair – all the realm of the human condition. Every one of us can find ourselves in them – all of them at some time.
Prayer: Father, thanks that You understand all of our emotions and needs. We trust You with our whole being at all times. Amen.
