I used to think Psalms were always happy and used to praise God, but it is actually refreshing to read that a lot of them are God’s people asking him for help or complaining to him when things are hard. God invites us to tell him everything, even when we need to just vent.
What a beautiful prayer from a father, King David, about his son, King Solomon.
6Upon you I have leaned from before my birth;
you are he who took me from my mother’s womb.
My praise is continually of you.-ellie
May I be able to testify with the psalmist that “my mouth is filled with your praise and with your glory all the day.” For “blessed be the LORD, the God of Israel, who alone does wonderful things.”
18Blessed be the Lord, the God of Israel,
who alone does wondrous things.
71:3 is such a powerful reminder that we need to continually open our hearts to God and willingly place our trust in Him! What a great heart check!
3 Be my rock of refuge,
to which I can always go;
give the command to save me,
for you are my rock and my fortress.
