For generations, believers have gone to the Psalms to praise God in joy and seek solace in grief. In these poems, we experience wonder, despair, gratitude, zeal, lament, and hope. The various psalmists use imagery and figurative language to help us unpack the layers of human experience and lead us emotionally to the heart of God. As we pause this summer to explore Wisdom from Psalms, we pray God would captivate our hearts with his depth and glory.

Calm and Quiet

July 14
Psalm 131

In this psalm of ascent, we get a glimpse into David’s journey from pride to humility. He has learned what it means to carry a heavy burden and then entrust it to God. May we also learn to calm and quiet our hearts as we trust God instead of seeking to control our own fates.

God's Word

Psalm 119

In this psalm, the author focuses on the life-giving nature of God’s Word. Studying the Bible and aligning our lives with truth is integral to being transformed into the image of Christ. Indeed, the Bible is our primary path towards knowing the heart of God.

Your word is a lamp to guide my feet

and a light for my path.
