We expound Psalm 30 in the first half of tonight's study including its liturgical history, the story of David and the census and the altar in Jerusalem, the influence of Satan and the demons in our lives, and the experience of feeling abandoned by God.
We explore Psalm 32 in the second half. We discuss the importance of love covering a multitude of sins, the connection between sincerity and forgiveness, and the dangers of ignoring God.
Psalm 16 points to Jesus' death and resurrection. It also points us to Him as the path of life, our inheritance, our everything. We examine the difference between the Israelite and Christian perspectives on this psalm as well as some of its cultural and linguistic nuances. We then stopped recording and prayed the Thursday Night Office for which this is the psalm.
