I’m enjoying Psalm 63 even though I never find the psalms easy to memorise. Love your comments about v1 Joosep. Such a challenge! And rcfc2 I’m looking forward to getting as far as verse 8. What a beautiful verse.
Thank you for pointing that out, Jane. I like the idea of constancy in 63:8. "My soul clings to you". (as it is said in my NASB). I feel that the Lord is trying to teach me to seek Him more constantly -- "rejoice always, pray without ceasing". "My soul clings to you". If something clings, it holds on and doesn't let go! Also verse 1 and the word "earnestly" means a lot to me (in the KJB it says "early". Earnestly -- is for me seeking God a light thing along with other means of entertainment? Or is it life and death, as it is in a "dry and weary land where there is no water".
This is how I feel God is challenging me, teaching me.
I really appreciate Psalm 146 - especially around election time. :) It is a good reminder that so much of what many look to government to provide God perfectly cares for - our trust should always be in Him.
I also love Psalm 63:8. What joy! Even as our soul follows after God, all along He is holding us in His hand - safe and secure.
amen! As to Psalm 63, I haven't started it yet, but have queued it for learning ... but I agree, it's a wonderful psalm
Choose 146 as my next Psalm to learn . Singing to God as long as I live! Praise the Lord
What are your insights from Psalm 107?
Great to see so many learning Psalm 63
Going well goodnews . Glad you are loving the Psalms
Just on 16 now .I really love the last verse.
My method has been to start with the shortest ones first and ones where I know some verses already from the scripture in song days. I love Psalm 24. Blessings to you 😇
I'm working now on adding Psalm 24 -- though not going through them in order like Goodnews is :)
It's good to hear that you've been sticking to your goal, Goodnews. Praise the Lord.
Up to Psalm 12. It is. Amazing that the ancient words are so current.❤️
thank you Janet
Psalm 113 is a good Psalm to learn . Blessings
Goodnews, that is an admirable goal! May God bless you as you patiently walk to accomplish it! Thank you also janet23 and JDJDJD :) I've always read the Bible a lot, but I confess that I haven't in my life read the Psalms and prayed the Psalms as much as I should have. That's why I felt I should come here and ask that question.
Praying for you Joosep as you go through these difficult times. May you receive great comfort as you learn scripture and get to know and rely on the Lord more.
Psalm 46 is a great choice joosep. May the Lord comfort your heart and strengthen your faith and give to us all the patient endurance we all need at this time. Blessed be God .!! ❤️❤️
I decided to start at Psalm 1 and learn them in order. I have just cued up Psalm 10 . It is such a blessing to sing or pray these ancient songs.
I've just read Psalm 4. It's quite apropos for what I'm going through at the moment. Thank you!
Thank you rvfc2. I'm grateful for all the support expressed here, very grateful. I decided to go with Psalm 46. I plan to read it outloud for ten days and then add it to my learning queue here at this site. But all the other Psalms mentioned, I've noted those as well.
Psalm 91 has been my cherished help this year and Psalm 4 reminds us of God's past faithfulness. Will be praying for you Joosep.
Thank you PeterP. Duly noted.
I’d recommend Psalm 34 too. It’s full of promises of deliverance in times of trouble for those who seek God.
you're welcome. I'm making a note of all these, and then reading them as they are mentioned.
:) thanks :) I am working on Psalm 5 which has been a great launching for prayer.
I will be praying for you too.
thank you, mrsmoo, and onfire also
Psalm 103 is one of my favorites. It both praises God and shows the benefits of remaining in his kingdom.
JDJDJD agree... those two (46 & 91) are powerful. And Psalm 23 great comfort. I would add to the list Psalm 28 which (with other Scripture too) got me through desperate nights shortly after the death of my youngest child. God is faithful and provides. joosep--- will be praying for you.
thank you :) if anyone else has a different recommendation, I'd be glad to hear it. I'm feeling now that I really need to go to a deeper level of calling on God and trusting in God ... some difficult times now (as we are all experiencing to one level or another)
Psalm 46 or 91.
I am going to be ready to start learning some new verses in a few days. It seemed right to me to pose the question in this group, what is a good Psalm for calling on God when you are in distress? And relying only on Him, and not on your own strength? I decided I'll learn the Psalm that is recommended. If there's more than one I'll choose one of the ones offered. Thanks in advance.
What's the Lord saying to you through the Psalms you are learning?
Be exalted O Lord above the heavens, let your glory be over all the earth
God blesses us by healing our diseases Psalm 103
Psalm 3 God's protection is a blessing
It's a blessing to have our sins Forgiven (Psalm 32)
PSALM 1 Meditating on the Word of God is a Blessing
