Psalms

The genre of Psalms are Songs and Poetry of all kinds and is written by multiple authors. David wrote 73, Asaph wrote 12, the sons of Korah wrote 9, Solomon wrote 3, Ethan, and Moses each wrote one (Ps. 90), and 51 of the Psalms are anonymous. They were written over the span of approximately 900 years (Beginning at the time of Moses 1440 B.C. and through the captivity in 586 B.C.).

They include praises of joy, laments, blessings, and thanksgivings that are directed towards God and they help us to express and communicate ourselves to Him. We read about the Psalmist’s emotions from one extreme to another, from praising, delighting in and worshiping God with fervour, to repentance and crying out to Him in despair.

Psalms sits at the very centre of the Bible and it’s major themes include Praise, God’s Power, Forgiveness, Thankfulness and Trust. “My mouth will speak the praise of the LORD, and all flesh will bless His holy name forever and ever” (Psalm 145:21).

Mainly, the Psalms were written to help us deliver praise to God who is worthy of such. As psalms 150:6 reads, “Let everything that has breath praise the Lord.”

How do we know what God wants for us in our lives? “Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path”, (Psalm 119:105). The answer is found in reading His Word, studying it, and applying its unchanging truths to your life.

Psalm 121

My Help Comes from the Lord

A Song of Ascents.

121:1 I lift up my eyes to the hills.
From where does my help come?
My help comes from the Lord,
who made heaven and earth.

He will not let your foot be moved;
he who keeps you will not slumber.
Behold, he who keeps Israel
will neither slumber nor sleep.

The Lord is your keeper;
the Lord is your shade on your right hand.
The sun shall not strike you by day,
nor the moon by night.

The Lord will keep you from all evil;
he will keep your life.
The Lord will keep
your going out and your coming in
from this time forth and forevermore. (ESV)

How to Keep your eyes fixed on God:
  • Worship;
  • Watch what we feed our minds;
  • Have an attitude of gratitude;
  • Believe the promise of help.
