Bible Study

For the past two weeks we have been studying the history psalms. There are three psalms that record Israel's history--78, 105, and 106. It has been an interesting study because each psalm takes a slightly different perspective. Psalm 78 is more just a recording of the history. Psalm 105 highlights the many sins of Israel. And Psalm 106 focuses on confession of those sins and God's faithfulness through those sins. I have read through the Old Testament and have studied Israel's pattern of following after God, rebelling, turning away from Him, and then seeking Him again. But it is very different when you read that pattern within 50 verses. One thing that is very encouraging...our God is a faithful God, slow to anger, abounding in love. When we seek Him, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins. And He is a covenant-keeping God! Praise the Lord!
