Psalm 106-110

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.

106:13 But they soon forgot what he had done and did not wait for his plan to unfold.

They did not wait in faith, believing God's plans are best. Do we?

107:2 Let the redeemed of the LORD tell their story—those he redeemed from the hand of the foe

We all have a story. A story of being saved from something – maybe a bad situation, maybe a bad relationship, maybe from ourselves.

108:13 With God we will gain the victory, and he will trample down our enemies.

Only with God will we gain the victory. We cannot achieve it on our own. It is God who tramples down our enemies, not us.

109:31 For he stands at the right hand of the needy, to save their lives from those who would condemn them.

God stand at the right hand of the needy. He is concerned for them who are oppressed, down trodden, false accused, not paid the correct wage, abused, mistreated. He stands in order to save them.

110:3 Your troops will be willing on your day of battle. Arrayed in holy splendor, your young men will come to you like dew from the morning’s womb

At the moment God's troops are not always willing. Sometimes they are distracted, apathetic and disinterested. But on the day of battle, they will be willing. Then their eyes will be open to spiritual realities.
