During day 25 we studied Psalms chapters 120-125.
Psalm 120 is another great song reminding believers that God hears us when we cry out to Him. He will deliver us! We see the author asking for deliverance from lying lips and deceit. This is so important for us to pray about in our own lives. We must focus on the Word and speaking the truth, not following the way of the world and its lies.
Chapter 121 is awesome. Even though this psalm is short, it has so much encouragement in it! I love how the author points out that his help comes from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth. It is beautiful!
Psalm 122 is a song in which David says to pray for peace in Jerusalem and for the people of God to be safe as they love and worship Him. This song reminds me of how much we need to be praying for our own country—for our nation to seek God and live for Him. The Lord should be praised and feared, yet the country that once served Him now mocks His very name. It is disturbing at best, but we know that God is sovereign, even over such saddening times.
Psalm 123 also reminded me of prayers we should have for the US at this time. We should be pleading for mercy, yet asking for God to have justice.
Chapter 124 praises God for His mercy and help in times of trouble. I love how David says that if it was not for God, they would not have been saved. The Lord delivered them.
Psalm 125 reminds me of a song that we sing at StoneWater during worship service sometimes. The song is called “Those Who Trust” and echo’s the words of this psalm, saying “Those who trust in the Lord shall not be moved.” How comforting is that?! Those who put their faith in God will be placed on a firm foundation that is constant and true. We will not be moved!
