Welcome back to Week 5 of our Summer Bible Study in the book of Psalms. At the end of this week, we will have reached the halfway point of our Summer Bible Study!
If you missed any part of our summer series, here are the links:
If you are new here – jump right in where we are and catch up on the weekends. All are welcome to join anytime – there are no enrollments or sign-ups! 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 116-119:

Like a guard who watches over a city at night, our God does not sleep. He is always watching over us and protecting us.
We do not serve a sleepy God! Do you sometimes struggle to sleep at night? How does knowing that God is awake and watching over you all night long, give you peace, so you can rest?
David was happy to be invited to join others in the house of the Lord. There they could pray, worship and fellowship together.
While the church is the people, not the building, the church building is a place where God’s people meet together. It is good for us to be with God’s people in the house of the Lord. Do you have a church you attend regularly? No church is perfect because all churches are filled with imperfect people, but in what ways do you find joy in going to your church?
The Psalmist begged the Lord for mercy. In desperation, he didn’t ask just once. He asked twice and he continued to look to the Lord and wait on him until he received the mercy he asked for.
Is there something you need from the Lord today? Write your request below and then don’t just ask once – continue to ask and watch and wait on the Lord to answer your prayer.
We can be confident that the maker of the heavens and the earth is with us. When we call on his name, he will help us.
It is no small thing to have access to the maker of the heavens and earth! Our confidence that we can call on him and he will help us, should be secure. Remembering past times that God helped us, grows our trust. Think back over your life and tell of a time when you prayed and asked the Lord for help. How did he answer that prayer?
Our trust in the Lord makes us strong and secure. Even though life may bring hard times, like a firmly established mountain, we will not be moved and will abide forever.
We cannot be strong and secure until we put our complete trust in God. What are you trusting in today? Are you trusting in yourself and your own strength or in God’s? Is there something that is competing with God for your dependency? Confess and realign your heart with God’s today.
