I recently finished questions for reflection from Psalm 128-131. To review where I’ve been over the last few weeks along with a synopsis of the answers, I wrote a post at this link: answers as we step ahead.
The next part of the travel will take me to Psalm 132-138. Over the next few weeks, I will be posting about the journey and will use the questions below to help focus on each passage.
What has David done? Explain his desire (See 2 Sam. 7). How is God’s chosen dwelling different from David’s conception (V. 11-12)? What is one area in life where I need to stop thinking my way and start thinking God’s way?
What are the results of unity? How does its influence spread? What effect does unity have on Christianity? What attitude and actions are apparent? What desire does the psalmist have in this psalm?
Why is the psalmist praising God? What memories of past victories are evoked? In what ways is God different from Idols?
How does God demonstrate his understanding and power in the physical universe? What can you learn from the way God deals with people? What is God saying in this psalm to those who may doubt his love as the Israelites did at times?
What methods of psychological warfare were the captors using? When others do not take you or your faith seriously, how do you react? What difficulty in life has caused the greatest growth in you?
What motivates the kings to praise God? How can we have confidence about the future?
The above reading plan will be used as I share over the next few posts. It’s important to have a plan. I’m thankful that Jesus is God’s plan for us and by accepting Him as Savior; we have taken the steps necessary to make this day with Him amazing! At this link: God’s Plan for Us, is a post about accepting God’s plan or reaffirming our “YES” for Christ.
Feel free to respond with a short note or a comment about any of the questions above. Also, I welcome any other thoughts or ideas, favorite inspirational videos, photos, or favorite Bible verses. Just add them to the comments or to a Facebook page I’ve set up at this link: This Day With God.
