A MONTH OF PSALMS


What a blessing it is to read Scripture. But where do you start? I’ve heard many suggestions. You can start with the book of John and get an quick overview into the ministry, death and resurrection of our Lord and Savior. You can start with Genesis, and read every book in God’s Holy Word. You can start with the Gospels. You can start with the Poetry Books. The real point is to start reading.

The Book of Psalms reads more like a prayer and praise book. There’s 150 Psalms. It sounds like lot, but many of them are rather short. If you read five Psalms a day, you’ve read the book in a month. That’s what I’ve been doing during my quiet time this month. It’s been very peaceful and comforting starting my day in this powerful prayer and praise book. The major theme of this wonderful collection is God’s consistent love. What a wonderful way to start the day!

Today I read through Psalm 135. Some days I’ve read more than five Psalms, and there’s a few days I’ve read less.  I noticed there are 31 chapters in the book of Proverbs. I think I’ll dive into that wonderful book of wisdom next month.

Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path. Psalm 119:105 ESV

 But he answered, “It is written, “‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.’” Matthew 4:4 ESV

 All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be competent, equipped for every good work. 2 Timothy 3:16-17 ESV

One thought on “A MONTH OF PSALMS

  1. Great reminder. Years ago, a former pastor taught us to read the ‘Proverbs book of the day’, coinciding with each day of the month. Has been such a blessing and His wisdom just gradually starts saturating ones life.
