Summer in Psalms Interactive Bible Study – August 24

Thank you for joining us for a summer in Psalms! We’ll stay in Psalms through the end of August. Since this Bible study is interactive, we need a response from you, what God is laying on your heart, after you read today’s psalm. Just leave your response in the Comments section on our website’s home page. Your response could be a verse that stood out to you, observation, application, prayer, question, prayer request, or response to another’s comment. Please check back! Together we can encourage one another and grow closer to God!

The Discover One Thing ministry uses the SOAP method of Bible Study (Scripture, Observation, Application, Prayer) during our daily time at the feet of Jesus. To learn more, check out the “What’s SOAP?” tab above. This interactive study is intended to be a stepping stone from reading God’s Word to journaling with Him using SOAP.

Our next study will be 6 weeks in Romans starting September 1.

Psalm 85

For the director of music. Of the Sons of Korah. A psalm.

You, Lord, showed favor to your land;
    you restored the fortunes of Jacob.
You forgave the iniquity of your people
    and covered all their sins.
You set aside all your wrath
    and turned from your fierce anger.

Restore us again, God our Savior,
    and put away your displeasure toward us.
Will you be angry with us forever?
    Will you prolong your anger through all generations?
Will you not revive us again,
    that your people may rejoice in you?
Show us your unfailing love, Lord,
    and grant us your salvation.

I will listen to what God the Lord says;
    he promises peace to his people, his faithful servants—
    but let them not turn to folly.
Surely his salvation is near those who fear him,
    that his glory may dwell in our land.

10 Love and faithfulness meet together;
    righteousness and peace kiss each other.
11 Faithfulness springs forth from the earth,
    and righteousness looks down from heaven.
12 The Lord will indeed give what is good,
    and our land will yield its harvest.
13 Righteousness goes before him
    and prepares the way for his steps.

  2. This could have been the name of our end-of-summer bbq last night, Rebecca! We would not have met together and grown in friendship and love together if God had not placed us together.

    Verse 12 – The Lord will indeed give what is good! AND our land will yield its harvest–are you workers ready for it?

  3. Turned

    S – Verse 8 : I’ll listen to what God the Lord says; he promises peace to his people, his faithful servants— but let them not turn to folly.

    O – You have told us about all of the good stuff that will happen, if we will only obey You. You are not smiling down on us right now, we have turned from you and the ramifications are in effect.

    A – Let me spring forth!

    P – Verse 4 : Restore us again, God our Savior, and put away your displeasure toward us.
