Our reading schedule will continue through the Book of Psalms throughout June. We’ll begin the month with one of the best-known Psalms (“The LORD is my shepherd…”) and end it with David’s declaration of the coming Christ (“The LORD says to my Lord…”).
Many of the Psalms are brief, compared to other chapters in the Bible, and it can be tempting to scan them quickly. But as you read, consider the range of human emotions that run the gamut—emotions quite similar to what all of us experience. Also consider the common themes that tie these Psalms together: Confidence in and praise for the God who cares for his children.
BOLO (Be on the Lookout) Verse: “This poor man called, and the LORD heard him; he saved him out of all his troubles. The angel of the LORD encamps around those who fear him, and he delivers them.” (Hint: It’s in one of the Psalms.)
May’s BOLO Verse was Job 19:25: An expression of Job’s faith in God against a background of tragic circumstances, unrelieved suffering and unhelpful friends.
If you haven’t been following the reading schedule, or if you’ve dropped off, June will be a good month to begin, or begin again. Blessings on you as you read!
