Could David have been the first blogger?
It’s GREAT that we have David’s words to read… he experienced and wrote about so many different feelings that we experience. Hey, now that I think about it, David was like the first blogger, wasn’t he?!
I never had thought about him in that way. He might not have been a blogger in today’s sense of the word but He certainly had a good rapport with God. A myriad of emotions are freely expressed throughout the book of Psalms.
In the latest edition of the LifeChange series Bible studies, the Navigators takes readers on a journey of prayer through the book of Psalms. Not just prayers of praise and worship but it also includes prayers of intercession and supplication, renewal and restoration, vindication and forgiveness among several others. The study contains 10 lessons that are designed to be used as a group study but can be done individually as well.
Each lesson contains a lesson objective, desired action, Psalms for the lesson, and study questions. Participants are encouraged to delve deeper into the lesson’s theme through the use of additional application activities and further study assignments.
What I like about the study:
- It’s not just a read the scripture and fill in the blank study. Questions are designed for you to study the scripture and discover for oneself how it applies to their lives.
- Perfect size to carry along with you.
- Provides a listing of additional study aides
- Includes a basic group leader’s guide for each lesson
One thing to note is that the study does not proceed through the book of Psalms by chapters but based upon themes. Each lesson discusses several Psalms passages. It’s simple design and layout provides little visual appeal but offers a good starter map for anyone wanting a fresh view of Psalms.
