Welcome to BibleBum where we are exploring the entire Bible in one year to better learn how to follow God’s instructions and discover the purpose for our lives. The BibleBum blog uses The One Year Chronological Bible, the New Living Translation version. At the end of each day’s reading, Rob, a cultural history aficionado and seminary graduate, answers questions from Leigh An, the blogger host, about the daily scripture. To start from the beginning, click on “Index” and select Day 1.
Psalm 103, 108-110, 122, 124
O. (Psalm 103:1-6): Beautiful!!!
O. (103:12) From Rob: 103:12 is one of my favorite verses in all of scripture. I think it speaks great volumes of the grace God has for His children that long predates Jesus entering the world.
O. (103:20-22): I am way excited to someday see heaven and all the angels. It must be a wonderful sight!
Q. (Psalm 103): I was just thinking of the many faces of David when I read this verse. When we first met David, he was a shepherd and could play the harp really well. Then, we see him battle Saul and other kings victoriously over and over again. But, in many of these psalms, he seems to hunker down, hiding from the enemy and deep in prayer.
A. Life was surely full of spiritual mountains and valleys for David. It is no surprise to me that his recorded prayer life reflects this.
