Back in April 2010, Paul Maxfield posted an excellent introduction to the book of Psalms. It’s worth reading over this to help keep the book of Psalms in context.
Being honest, I can remember tuning out on a few occasions when reading the Psalms, because many of them sound similar, and the modern translations can’t retain the original poetry that took these important ideas and made them ‘musical’.
This time around I’m going to try reading each psalm as a prayer, reading it to God. Developing a regular prayer life that uses good, biblical theology is something worth aiming for, so that we can pray in line with God’s will, and get to know Him better.
If you’ve been struggling to keep up with the readings, why not use today as a catch-up point? Take note of where you fell behind, and join in afresh. I hope it’s going well for you.
