Psalms is basically the hymn book of the people of God for worship. Dr. Woodrow Kroll, former President of Back to the Bible, wrote in his introduction to the Book of Psalms: The Book of Psalms is the greatest collection of prayers, praises, and promises recorded anywhere in history. Not only does this book record actual songs that Jewish pilgrims sang as they ascended the roads to Jerusalem for their feasts, it has much to say to us today in the middle of our worries and fears. The Book of Psalms will direct your praise toward God and help you appreciate His continual care and compassion for you. This 65-page devotion takes you through the 150 Psalms in 30 days.
Comment: Let’s focus on one application from these first eight psalms. Psalm 4:8 says, “In peace I will both lie down and sleep; for you alone, O Lord, make me dwell in safety.” How do you sleep? Do you toss and turn? Do you wake up in the middle of the night and cannot get back to sleep? Are you rested after a night of sleep? How long do you try to sleep each night?
Prayer: Father, thank You for your promises in these first eight psalms. Thank You for peace and safety as You watch over us as we sleep. May we truly rest in You and You alone. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
