Chapter One

Preparing Your Heart

Ask God to quiet your heart and to speak to you through His Word. Ask Him to shine the light of His truth into your life. In this quiet moment, surrender yourself to Him and commit to obey whatever He shows you. Begin your time of devotion with this prayer:

Listening to God

• Read Psalm 1 thoughtfully and prayerfully.

• What key words stand out to you in this passage?

• Write out a key verse from this passage.

• Summarize the entire passage in a sentence or two.

"This psalm may be regarded as The Preface Psalm, having in it a notification of the contents of the entire Book. It is the Psalmist's desire to teach us the way to blessedness and to warn us of the sure destruction of sinners. This, then, is the matter of the First Psalm, which may be looked upon, in some respects, as the text upon which the whole of the Psalms make up a divine sermon."

1. What are the characteristics of a righteous person? What does he avoid? What does he love to think about (vv. 1-2)?

_________________________________________________________________________________ _________________________________________________________________________________

2. How does the word picture of a "transplanted tree" describe the righteous (v. 3)?

_________________________________________________________________________________ _________________________________________________________________________________

"Trees do not plant themselves; neither do sinful transport themselves into God's kingdom. Salvation is His marvelous work of grace. Yet, there is genuine responsibility in appropriating the abundant resources of God, which lead to eventual productivity."

3. What words are used to refer to evildoers in this psalm (vv. 1 4)? What insights do those words give you into the unrighteous?

_________________________________________________________________________________ _________________________________________________________________________________

"The picture is that of a threshing floor on a hill-top, where the wind clears away the chaff and leaves the grain."

4. Compare the first word of this psalm with the last word. What do these two words reveal about the outcome of the righteous and of the ungodly?

_________________________________________________________________________________ _________________________________________________________________________________

1. How can we be secure, fruitful, consistent, and prosperous in our Christian walk?

_________________________________________________________________________________ _________________________________________________________________________________

2. How do people's choices, lifestyles, and appetites reveal the true condition of their hearts?

_________________________________________________________________________________ _________________________________________________________________________________

3. If an individual is drawn toward ungodly people and influences, does not have an appetite for the Word of God, and is not living a spiritually fruitful life, what does that suggest about his spiritual condition?

_________________________________________________________________________________ _________________________________________________________________________________

4. What does it mean to meditate on the law of God?

_________________________________________________________________________________ _________________________________________________________________________________

HOW CAN I MAKE THIS PASSAGE A PART OF MY LIFE?

1. What do your choices, interests, and priorities reveal about your heart?

_________________________________________________________________________________ _________________________________________________________________________________

2. Are there areas of your life where you are choosing to expose yourself to ungodly input?

_________________________________________________________________________________ _________________________________________________________________________________

3. Are you more influenced by the thinking and lifestyles of ungodly people or by meditation on the Word of God?

_________________________________________________________________________________ _________________________________________________________________________________

4. How can you cultivate a greater hunger for and delight in God's Word? How can you make His Word a greater part of your life?

_________________________________________________________________________________ _________________________________________________________________________________

Responding to God

What does this passage reveal to you about God and His ways? Praise Him for His Word and for what it has meant in your life.

_________________________________________________________________________________ _________________________________________________________________________________ _________________________________________________________________________________

Confession: Agree with God about any areas where you may have

Supplication: Ask God to give you a greater love and hunger for His Word.

Intercession: Use this passage as a basis to pray for someone whom God

When we walk with the Lord in the light of His Word, What a glory He sheds on out way! While we do His good will, He abides with us still, And with all who will trust and obey.

Not a shadow can rise, not a cloud in the skies, But His smile quickly drives it away; Not a doubt nor a fear, not a sigh nor a tear Can abide while we trust and obey.

But we never can prove the delights of His love Until all on the altar we lay; For the favor He shows and the joy He bestows Are for them who will trust and obey.

Then in fellowship sweet we will sit at His feet, Or we'll walk by His side in the way; What He says we will do, where He sends we will go; Never fear, only trust and obey.

What key thought, phrase, or verse from this psalm

Preparing Your Heart

Ask God to quiet your heart and to speak to you through His Word. Ask Him to shine the light of His truth into your life. In this quiet moment, surrender yourself to Him and commit to obey whatever He shows you. Begin your time of devotion with this prayer:

Listening to God

• Read Psalm 19 thoughtfully and prayerfully.

• What key words stand out to you in this passage?

• Write out a key verse from this passage.

• Summarize the entire passage in a sentence or two.

The psalmist (David) marvels at two ways that God has revealed Himself to humanity:

Natural (general) revelation (vv. 1-6)

1. What does creation tell us about God?

_________________________________________________________________________________ _________________________________________________________________________________ _________________________________________________________________________________ _________________________________________________________________________________

"Though all preachers on earth should grow silent, and every human mouth cease from publishing the glory of God, the heavens above will never cease to declare and proclaim His majesty and glory."

Special (specific)revelation (vv. 7-11)

2. What is the connection between "the heavens" (vv. 1-6) and "the law of the Lord" (vv. 7-11)?

_________________________________________________________________________________ _________________________________________________________________________________

3. What synonyms are used in this passage for the Word of God (vv. 7-9)? What adjectives are used to describe the Word of God (vv. 7-9)?

_________________________________________________________________________________ _________________________________________________________________________________

4. David's response in the light of God's revelation was self-examination (vv. 12-14). What two kinds of sins does the psalmist pray to be delivered from (vv. 12-13)?

_________________________________________________________________________________ _________________________________________________________________________________

5. What does he want the Word of God to accomplish in his life?

_________________________________________________________________________________ _________________________________________________________________________________

1. Why is the Word of God so vital and valuable to the child of God?

_________________________________________________________________________________

2. God promises "great reward" to those who "keep" His Word (v. 11). What does it mean to keep His Word?

_________________________________________________________________________________ _________________________________________________________________________________

3. Why is God's Word more valuable than our most precious possessions and sweeter than the greatest pleasures on this earth?

_________________________________________________________________________________ _________________________________________________________________________________

4. Many people think of obeying God's law as a burden. Why is it more a privilege and a blessing than a burden?

_________________________________________________________________________________ _________________________________________________________________________________

HOW CAN I MAKE THIS PASSAGE A PART OF MY LIFE?

1. What are some specific areas of your life that have been changed by the Word of God?

_________________________________________________________________________________ _________________________________________________________________________________

2. Which of the benefits and blessings in verses 7-11 would you like to experience in greater measure?

_________________________________________________________________________________ _________________________________________________________________________________

3. What practical steps can you take to make the Word a higher priority in your life?

_________________________________________________________________________________ _________________________________________________________________________________

4. Are you aware of anything in the Word of God that you are not currently obeying? Will you repent of going your own way and begin walking in obedience to His Word?

_________________________________________________________________________________ _________________________________________________________________________________

Responding to God

Thank God for His Word. Thank Him for making it available to you, and praise Him for the way that His Word has blessed and protected your life.

Confession: Admit any hidden or willful sins that God reveals as you ask

Supplication: Pray the prayer of verses 12-14 in your own words.

    Good Workbook...

    This book was purchased through the recommendation of a friend. It is a good workbook for working through some of the Psalms -- questions are not real thought-provoking, but do require you to think about what you've read. Good for "Bible Beginners." A good workbook for staying connected to Bible study when regular Bible study classes are on hiatus.
