Psalm Pstudy: 1-10

I am very, very excited about this post. It is Really Good Stuff. That's because it's nothing about me or my words. When I was at Ellerslie, I caught on to the amazing fact that the Word of God is, in fact, the Word of God, and it is absolutely TRUE! When you truly realize that, the Bible comes ALIVE! Combined with the truth that Jesus = the Word of God, it becomes even more amazing as you see Jesus shining out of every page.

This post was birthed out of two desires: the desire to know Jesus more, and the desire to read the Psalms again. I decided to read the Psalms and find and write down one thing that it taught me about Jesus. For 99% of the Psalms this was very simple, since Jesus is God, and the Psalms are full of clear statements about God.

So here are my findings, pretty much verbatim from whatever day I read them. I know from experience that when people post long informational posts, or posts full of Scripture, it can be easy to just skim over it, even if you know it's good for you. So I've decided to spread this over 15 posts to make it more accessible. Even so, please, please slow down and really take time to see Jesus for who He says He is.

Taste and see that the Lord is good! Blessings as you seek Him!

1. Jesus does not sin - His delight is in the law of the Lord.

2. It is useless, laughable, to stand against the Lord and His Anointed [Jesus].

3. Jesus is a shield for me.

4. Jesus has set apart for Himself him who is godly.

5. He is not a God who takes pleasure in wickedness.

6. Jesus has heard my supplication.

7. Jesus is trustworthy.

8. Jesus' name is excellent in all the earth.

9. Jesus shall endure forever.

10. Jesus observes trouble and grief, to repay it by His hand.
