There is no “right way” for reading through the Psalms other than asking the Holy Spirit to guide you and speak to you through them. However, for the past several years, I have read through the book of Psalms during the 50 days between Resurrection Sunday/First Fruits and Shavout/Pentecost as part of my devotional reading plan. This fifty days is also known as the Counting of the Omer during the Feast of Weeks. As there are 150 Psalms, I read three each day, beginning with Psalm 1, 51, and 101 and ending on the final day on Psalm 50, 100, and 150.



You don’t have to wait until specific time to begin. Read through the Psalms any time you want to set aside a time to draw close to God. Each morning as you begin, thank God for his goodness and faithfulness and for his gift of Jesus Christ, claim the atonement of the blood of Jesus and ask him to renew your mind, invite in the present of the Holy Spirit and ask God what he wants to reveal or speak to you about that day . . . and then begin.

    Reading through the Psalms Day 50: Psalm 50, 100, & 150

    Reading through the Psalms Day 50: Psalm 50, 100, & 150

    In both the times of David and today, there are talkers and then there are doers . . . those who seek God with their whole heart. God doesn't want actions for show, he is looking for those with a sincere heart. Psalm 50 makes this clear. He will answer those who serve him in truth (v 15,) but those who are just making a show are doomed for destruction. (v 22) s97bf8bc



    Jesus may have had this Psalm in mind when he was giving John the Beloved in his warning to the church at Laodicea in Revelation 3:16 when he told them their lukewarmness, their hypocrisy, would cause them to spew them out. This was also the same warning given to Israel in Leviticus 18:28 by God, if their actions and hearts weren't in line with his word the land would "vomit" them out.



    God has always been looking for those who will worship him in spirit and in truth (John 4:24,) for those whose hearts, words, and deeds line up, for those who have an active faith like Abraham (Genesis 6:15.)



    The key to becoming a man after the heart of God like David is given in Psalm 50 (v 14 and 23) and more clearly stated in Psalm 100:4, we draw near to God by thanking him for his goodness and all he has done for us, coming into his gates with thanksgiving and into his courts with praise. Psalm 150 the perfect capstone to a book about giving praise to God.

    Reading through the Psalms Day 49: Psalm 49, 99, & 149

    Reading through the Psalms Day 49: Psalm 49, 99, & 149

    There is an expression, "You can't take it with you." This sentiment is clearly expressed in Psalm 49. Not only can one not take their wealth with them, but it won't save them from the grave (verses 6-9) and it can't redeem another.



    God gives us truths throughout the Bible. Truths . . . answers . . . that are waiting to be found if we only look for them. If we are seeking after God through his word. This particular Psalm was one that sparked to Martin Luther's 95 Theses and was a clear refutation of the selling of indulgences, for as verse 15 clearly states, it is God alone who can redeem a soul from the power of Sheol.



    This Psalm also brought to mind the poem, "Richard Cory," by Edwin Arlington Robinson.



    Whenever Richard Cory went down town,

    We people on the pavement looked at him:

    He was a gentleman from sole to crown,

    Clean favored and imperially slim.



    And he was always quietly arrayed,

    And he was always human when he talked,

    But still he fluttered pulses when he said,

    “Good-morning," and he glittered when he walked.



    And he was rich--yes, richer than a king--

    And admirably schooled in every grace:

    In fine, we thought that he was everything

    To make us wish that we were in his place.



    So on we worked, and waited for the light,

    And went without the meat and cursed the bread;

    And Richard Cory, one calm summer night,

    Went home and put a bullet through his head.



    Yes, David and Solomon would both agree with Robinson's message.

    Reading through the Psalms Day 48: Psalm 48, Psalm 98, & Psalm 148

    Reading through the Psalms Day 48: Psalm 48, Psalm 98, & Psalm 148

    Looking at the headlines in the news, it seems bizarre that a little smidge of land and one spec in particular dominates so much of it. What is the nation of Israel, about the size of the state of New Jersey, and the city of Jerusalem that draws so much contention and strife?



    It doesn't make sense unless one reads the Bible and takes it at its Word. Israel and the city of Jerusalem are the focal point of an epic battle, a play for dominance, between the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob - the Lord of Hosts - and the spiritual forces of wickedness referenced in Ephesians 6:12. The principalities, two of which are named in Daniel 9, warring against God.



    God has made his covenant promise to the Jewish people, to show his strength through them to the nations, and has said he will return there. He has even said how he would return, through the East Gate of Jerusalem. Which is why when under Muslim control, they walled it over in an attempt to prevent it If Jesus broke the chains of death . . . I don't think some concrete and a few bricks will hold him back.



    Psalm 48 speaks of the confidence in the protection of God who has claimed Jerusalem and Mount Zion for his own. Psalm 98 speaks of his ultimate victory and when he will judge all in righteousness, and Psalm 148 again proclaims that all the earth praises him.

    Reading through the Psalms Day 47: Psalm 47, 97, & 147

    Psalm 47, 97, and 147 are all three about the joy that is only found in God's righteousness. Romans 8:19-22 states that the earth groans under the wickedness of man, of sin that is ruling the earth. Psalm 97:1 states that the earth itself, the very land, rejoices when God's truth reigns.

    Reading through the Psalms Day 46: Psalm 46, 96, & 146

    Reading through the Psalms Day 46: Psalm 46, 96, & 146

    Psalm 46 is about having faith in God no matter the storms life brings beginning "God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble." A very present help, he is right there with us, not just something we are to keep in mind as we go through it on our own. But this is also a prophetic Psalm speaking about the Final tribulation, the time of Jacob's troubles.



    The earthquakes and inundations by the oceans in verses 2 and 3 are described in detail in Revelation and Ezekiel 38. Verses 8 to 10 describe the Second Coming of Christ when wars are made an end to. This is a Psalm for those End Times, a voice of encouragment that no matter what the circumstances, God is faithful.



    Psalm 96 is a declaration of that deliverance. That the Lord will be acknowledged throughout the earth and that he will judge in righteousness. Psalm 146 continues on the goodness and salvation of God, echoing Isaiah 42:7 in verses 7 and 8.
