Why you should read the book of Psalms

January 22, 2018

Sometimes reading the Bible is hard, so actually studying it is very hard! I know the feeling of waking up and thinking it would be easier to scroll through Instagram rather than spending time with God, so I get it. It might seem that there is something better to do but actually digging into God’s word will benefit us all far more.

Over the past few months, I’ve been working on reading whole books of the Bible instead of being all over the place. It is very rewarding and helpful to look at the themes throughout the book and to have a better understanding of the message.

Today I want to share with you a few truths that I was reminded of when reading the book of Psalms and encourage you to read this book yourself.

God never changes
With the fast paced world we live in, only God can be our constant. Everything is always changing but through psalm after psalm there is a sense of God’s faithfulness through it all.

 He was there then, he is here now and he will be here tomorrow. 

We need to PRAISE GOD for who he is

We sometimes forget to actually thank God for what he is doing because we are too worried about what is to come. We need to stop that and PRAISE him for who he is, the God the universe, the creator and all powerful saviour. 

I will exalt you, my God the King;
    I will praise your name for ever and ever.
Every day I will praise you
    and extol your name for ever and ever.
Great is the Lord and most worthy of praise;
    his greatness no one can fathom.
-Psalm 145:1-3
Actively reading God’s word and then living it out is vital 
Your word is a lamp for my feet,a light on my path-Psalm 119:105
There is so much more truth in Psalms and in the whole bible I couldn’t fit them all in one blog post. These were the themes I felt that stood out to me.

We need to remind ourselves of these truths every time we feel it would be easier to do something else than spend time with God.

What have you learnt from reading Psalms? I’d love to hear!
