The Psalms are easily found because they are at the center of our Scriptures. This is a proper placement because they remind us about what God has promised in the Old Testament and point forward to the Savior revealed in the New Testament. Even more, they teach us how to properly respond to God’s promises in life’s trials. They lead us to cry out to God, remember him, trust him, and praise him.
There are many kinds of Psalms and my goal in selecting which ones we will study is to help us experience a variety. There are Psalms of praise (146), lament (22, 69), remembrance (77, 132), thankfulness (30, 32), and trust (91, 121). These psalms teach us how to call upon God in trouble and praise him for who he is and what he has done.
