The Book of Psalms offers readers ways to rejoice in prayer, to bow in worship, and to exalt God for all he does and for all his blessings to us, and at the heart of Psalms, there is a deep trust in God. When you spend time with God—reading His Word, listening, and praying for His direction—God will strengthen and enable you to handle life peacefully and wisely instead of merely trying to get through the day.
With the constant demands and pressures of daily life, it can be hard to regularly pause to be with and listen to God's voice. Joyce's practical teaching format in this 365-day devotional will encourage you to take the time for yourself so that you can fully receive the wisdom found in Psalms.
A Note from Joyce
The Book of Psalms is amazing. It helps us know and understand God, it teaches us how to worship Him, it instructs us in wisdom, it encourages us, and it offers practical advice for our everyday life. It also shows us that we can be completely honest with God about how we feel, because we see the psalm writers pouring out their hearts to Him in its pages, whether they felt joyful, confident, hopeful, angry, frightened, discouraged, lonely, or depressed. As they expressed their hearts to God, they received strength and comfort, they realized that He is utterly trustworthy, they reaffirmed their faith in Him, and they gave Him thanks and praise. Biblestudytools.com defines praise as “a description of value or worth.” So when we praise God, we let Him know how much He means to us, which is more than we could ever express.
I hope this devotional will help you relate to God as the psalmists did and that you will share your heart with Him freely and in new ways while you go through it and for the rest of your life. As you do, I believe you will discover fresh and wonderful qualities about Him and be strengthened in your faith and trust in Him. No matter what you face in life, God wants to be involved in it. He wants you to tell Him how you feel, and He wants to help you.
