People familiar with Christianity will often turn to the Bible when they are struggling with life; the death of a loved one, relationship struggles, failing health, financial burdens, and prodigal children. While various books of the Bible are used, one book in particular offers many comforts in our times of need, the Psalms.
As we move into a new sermon series, we have the joy of reflecting on seven Psalms. The beautiful use of poetry that reveals the heart of the Psalmist has always drawn people towards the Psalms for comfort and contemplative reflection. The Psalter covers questions so deep and profound to the human experience that they remain as relevant to contemporary readers as they were to its original ancient audience. As we look at our Seven Psalms series we hope you too can experience the beauty of their poetry and find solace in the word of God. So whatever you may be facing, be encouraged to contemplate on the word of God and be reminded that, “the afflicted shall eat and be satisfied; those who seek him shall praise the Lord!” (Psalm 22:26). Praise God that our satisfaction is found in the Lord.
