Psalm 111-118

Summarize what you read in one paragraph:

This is a psalm of acknowledgement of God for who he is and what he has done. It is a reflection and praise of his loving character. It is also a call to remembrance of God and his works. I think it is a great perspective to have in life to be able to live as a Christian with confidence and zeal.

What is one key verse?

Psalm 111:4

“He has caused his wondrous works to be remembered; the Lord is gracious and merciful.”

This verse stuck out to me because I think it sums up the psalm well. On one hand we are called to remember the Lord and what he has done. On the other hand we are reminded of his loving character.

How does what you read change your vision of God?

I think when I live remembering what God has done in my life to bring me to this point, and reflect on his love for me it causes me to live differently. When I live with these things in mind I’m motivated to put aside the pettiness of the world and live joyfully in response to God’s loving character.

How does what you read change your vision of yourself or others?

I think it causes me to be less critical of myself because I start to look at myself through the lens of worth that God gives me. I remember that God has been steadily working in my life in a powerful way. In spite of my faults he has found worth in me, he shows me love and kindness even when I deserve none. That makes me view myself a little more how God views me.

How will you Go with God because of this reading?

I will Go with God through this reading by widening my gaze on life a bit. In this time with so much separation, and all that’s going on in the world I think it’s easy to get tunnel vision and have a limited perspective on life. I intend to look, and seek faith on how God is working in this time by looking back and seeing how he has been faithful time and time again. I wont have all the answers about what’s going on in the world now, but I can look back on God’s faithfulness and love and have faith that he is working now.
