Psalms: Experiencing the Truth

The Psalms are written like prayers; in fact that’s what most of them are. They are a window into the experience of people walking with God. The Psalmists are taking their knowledge of the truth and using it in relationship with God. The Psalmists don’t just know the truth, they experience it, and they teach us how to do so also.

The Psalms don't just state the truth; they give us a window into the Psalmist's experience of the truth and teach us how we might experience it to. Psalm 2 is a gateway to the rest, teaching us that in order to experience the truth, we must joyfully and fearfully submit to the Lord.
