Where To Get Help In The Book of Psalms

God’s Word is filled with wisdom, instruction, hope, encouragement, history, proof, warnings, joy, and so much more. As Scripture says, it has all things pertaining to life and godliness (2 Peter 1:3). The key word in this passage is all. It has all we need to navigate this life and the life to come. We just simply have to know where to look in Scripture and how to apply it to our daily lives. No one has ever become wise or holy by just sitting around, nor just by reading something and never applying that wisdom to our lives. The Book of Psalms is filled with sweet prayers and truths about our great God and should be read constantly!

One of the best purchases I’ve made in my entire life is the NIV Application Study Bible. You can buy it in paper form or digital form. I personally have a paper copy of it, as well as a digital copy within the Olive Tree Bible App (which I highly recommend as well).

Below is a wonderful list of Psalms to turn to when you feel ________ (insert emotion), when you’re facing ________ (insert trial), or when you want ________ (insert desire). I trust this will be a helpful resource and an encouragement to you in your daily walk with the Lord!

I plan on posting a helpful entry on the Book of Proverbs here soon!
