Week 23

Memory Verse: Isaiah 55:9

Reading #1: Psalm 36

Questions:  Right after the description of the height of God’s love, faithfulness, righteousness and judgment in verses 5 & 6, what promises of His provision are we given in verses 7-9?

Reading #2: Psalm 57

Questions:  Both Psalm 36 and 57 describe God and His ways as being higher than the heavens and yet both call the reader to “take shelter under the shadow of His wings.”  How do you connect those 2 Divine attributes of loftiness and protection?

Reading #3: Psalm 71

Questions:  Psalm 71 continues the theme of God’s heavenly reaching righteousness and sheltering refuge.  What do these Divine attributes motivate the Psalmist to do in verses 14-18 and 22-24.  According to verse 17, how did the Psalmist acquire such a deep knowledge of the Lord?

Reading #4: Psalm 103

Questions: Verse 11 says that God’s steadfast love for those who fear Him is as high as the heavens are above the earth and in the next verse it says that he has removed our sins as far as the east is from the west.  What pivotal event can you point to that most profoundly displays those 2 statements?

Psalms and Hymns

Psalm 36B “Thy mercy Lord, extends to heaven; Thy faithfulness, the sky.  Thy justice is like mounts of God; Thy judgements depths defy.”

Psalm 57B “O be exalted high, O God! Above the heavens stand, and let Your glory be above all earth, both sea and land.
