Psalms 31-35

Here's how the study works: Read the chapters mentioned in the heading during the week and share any words, thoughts, verses that stood out to you. Having a week for several chapters creates the opportunity to revisit them and make additional comments as you feel inclined as well as make comments on other people's insights.

31:19 How abundant are the good things that you have stored up for those who fear you, that you bestow in the sight of all, on those who take refuge in you.

God stores up blessings for us and then bestow them in the sight of all.

Thank you Lord that you are storing up blessings for me! May I have the faith and gratitude to receive them.

Susan said...

32:9 Do not be like the horse or the mule, which have no understanding but must be controlled by bit and bridle or they will not come to you.

God is not a controller. He does not micro manage our days. We are not horses whose every movement is controlled by bit and bridle.

Susan said...

33:5 The LORD loves righteousness and justice; the earth is full of his unfailing love.

God loves justice but is also full of love. His compassion delays his justice. One day there will be justice but for now his unfailing love covers a multitude of sins.

Susan said...

34:19 The righteous person may have many troubles, but the LORD delivers him from them all.

Being righteous does not exclude us from troubles and regardless of the type of trouble God is able to deliver us. God will make a way where there seems to be no way.

35:3 Brandish spear and javelin against those who pursue me. Say to me, “I am your salvation.”

David wanted God to vindicate him, to contend against those who were fighting against him (v.1). And God will do this in his time if we look to him to be our salvation, like David did.
