This is it. This week we complete our summer Bible Study! Thank you to everyone who is still here and still going strong! It has been a great study together.
Are you wondering what’s next after we complete our study in Psalms?
First, we will go on a 3 week – end of the summer break. This break runs from August 19th – September 8th.
Our Fall Bible Study will begin on Monday, September 9th.
Check back here on the blog THIS Wednesday, August 14th for the big announcement of our fall Bible study. I cannot WAIT to share it with you! . But for now – let’s focus on finishing strong in the book of Psalms.
If you are new here – Psalms is an easy read, so you can jump right in with us this week! Just follow along using the free Bible Study tools below and be sure to check back here this Friday for a wrap-up of our reading.
If you are looking to connect with a community of women who share daily about their quiet times – join us over on Facebook and on instagram. The sharing has been great! If you are looking for guidance in the color coding – visit me on Instagram. Remember, there is no right or wrong way to do this and not all of our Bibles will look alike.
Here’s what mine looked like for Psalms 91-94:

This week’s Reflection & Discussion Questions
(Leaders: Copy and paste these into your groups. If you do not have a group, use these for a personal time of reflection.)
Praise is not meant to be a dull routine of repetition. Instead, as we receive new mercies from God each day and learn new things about his love and grace, our songs should be fresh and new.
Have you fallen into a boring routine of singing the same songs over and over? What new things have you experienced or learned about God that you can celebrate and turn into a new song?
When we consider how great and mighty and highly exalted our God is, it changes our view of evil. The Psalmist is not only calling on those who love God to hate evil and injustice in the world, but he is also calling on believers to hate evil in our own lives.
Sometimes we as believers are too loving and we accept things in others that the Lord hates, because of our fear of man. Other times, we accept evil in our own lives because we simply like it. Maybe we minimize a sin like gossip, pride, jealousy or anger and only hate it when it causes us trouble rather than hating it because God hates it. What sin in your own life do you need to hate more?
Not only do we see instruments, such as trumpets and horns praising the Lord in this Psalm, but we also see nature personified as the seas and rivers and hills and trees clap their hands to the Lord. Our praise to the Lord must not be silent.
Sometimes our worship is soft and quiet but other times it should be enthusiastic. All the earth is commanded to make a joyful noise to the Lord. Are you comfortable being noisy in your worship? Why or why not? How can you be freer with your worship this week?
Both earth and man tremble and quake at the sight of our God reigning on his throne. God’s cherubim look nothing like the religious artwork that we see of babies floating on clouds with wings. Instead, cherubim are mighty and strong angelic creatures who surround the throne of God.
Imagine for a moment the throne in heaven from Revelation 4:6-8: “Before the throne there was as it were a sea of glass, like crystal. And around the throne, on each side of the throne, are four living creatures, full of eyes in front and behind: 7 the first living creature like a lion, the second living creature like an ox, the third living creature with the face of a man, and the fourth living creature like an eagle in flight. 8 And the four living creatures, each of them with six wings, are full of eyes all around and within, and day and night they never cease to say,“Holy, holy, holy, is the Lord God Almighty, who was and is and is to come!”
How does reading this passage of scripture, change your reverence towards the Lord?
As God’s people came to the temple, they were to come with hearts of thanksgiving and praise.
Our God is good, gracious, forgiving and full of mercy. He will be faithful to us forever. Because of his faithfulness and our salvation, we can give thanks to Him and praise His name forever! When you go to church, what is typically on your mind and heart? Is it thanksgiving and praise? List 5 things you are grateful for below and focus on these this Sunday, as you go to church to worship. Keep walking with the King!
