Journey Through The Psalms Monthly Devotion

What you will need: Bible and a notebook to journal

Daily Devotion:


First pray that God will open your heart and mind to what He wants you to learn. Read the Psalm slowly. Most of them are songs. Try to read with a rhythm. Try to determine what the psalmist is trying to say. May want to read it again – slower.


Write down any characteristics that are describing God.


Write down the general feeling of the psalm. Is God being praised? Is the psalmist complaining to God? Etc.


If there is a verse(s) that captures you, write it (them) down. Try to ponder them throughout the day.

****Saturday: Find yourself a quiet place. Take one of the characteristics you have learned about God during the week. Then using a name that you use for God, quietly sit for 5 minutes and let God speak to you. If you find your mind wondering, that is okay, but bring it back by using the characteristic and the name of God. For instance: I might be focusing on Merciful as my characteristic. I usually call God – Father. So, if my mind wonders, I bring it back by thinking Merciful Father. I usually have to do this many times. Do Not beat yourself up about this. You will get better. Just try to listen to what God is speaking to you.
