This Daily Bread study of the Book of Psalms will be an independent study with this one page as an introduction and background of the book. It is best that you actually read these Psalms yourself as they are so very inspirational.

We'll start off with a Daily Bread Stick. What is a Psalm, anyway? A Psalm is a sacred song or poem used in the praising of God. In Greek, the word Psalms means playing of a harp. King David, who wrote these Psalms, played the stringed instrument since he was a young boy. He would sing psalms to God while he was in the fields tending sheep.

King David was called the apple of God's eye by God Himself. Perhaps one of the reasons was the touching Psalms that he wrote and played for God. Many of the Christian musicians of the day have picked up on this Truth and have written some awesome songs honoring and praising God.

Find yourself some awesome Christian Music on your favorite music app that you can listen to as to feel what I mean. Perhaps you can create some music for the Lord too. Or maybe start keeping a journal of thoughts that you want to share with God as to show your love for Him.

While some Psalms are dedicated solely to the glory of God as almost all include a note of praise, the collection of Psalms range in subject from fear to Faith, grief to Grace, judgment to joy, prophecy to peace, and war to wisdom. You may also notice that in many Psalms, the very first idea is immediately repeated in different words.

The Psalms of David are kind of like his journal to God, expressing his praises, questions, weaknesses, gratitude, and everyday life experiences. If you read about David's life, starting at 1 Samuel, Chapter 16 through the end of 2 Samuel, you'll find that he wrote many of his Psalms while he was king, and in request of the Lord's guidance and protection. David was also a Prophet of God and some of His Psalms were prophecies that he was sharing.

The Psalms of David Bible on Faith

I will now give ya a sneak preview into but one of these awesome Psalms of David ... David's prophecy of Jesus on the Cross. Psalm 22:16-18 While Jesus was on the Cross, He said "My God, My God, why hast thou forsaken me" ... There have been many assumptions as to why Jesus spoke these words but there is only one Truth.

Let us seek the Truth in scripture together, as to avoid deception and to be set free from any doubts. The exact words that Jesus spoke on the Cross, were spoken before by the prophet David, in Psalm 22:1 ...

So Jesus was simply quoting Scripture. When Jesus echoed these words, Jesus was directing the people to this particular scripture to reveal to them an awesome Truth.

The Psalms of David Bible Prayers

In the same message within Psalm 22 but in verses 16-18 is the prophecy that Jesus was directing them to look into. It reveals in verse 16, that David prophesied that "the assembly of the wicked have enclosed Me they pierced My hands and My feet." (In other words, the prophecy was saying that this person would be surrounded by wicked people and they would crucify Him.)

In verse 17 it says that "I" may tell all of My bones: they look and stare upon Me. (Meaning this person would not have any bones broken and the people would look upon Him.) In verse 18, it says "They part My garments among them, and cast lots upon My vesture."

This means they will divide the clothing of this person and gamble for His clothes. Now, we know from Scripture these things never happened to David. So he is speaking of another. If so, why was he saying Me, My and I?

The Psalms of David Bible Prophecy

Well, as we all know ... Jesus is the one that these things actually happened to and it was happening at the time that Jesus spoke the Words ... "My God, My God, why hast thou forsaken me." Sooooooo, what Jesus was saying upon the Cross when He said these words was ... It is Me talking through David in Psalm 22. Sooooo cool huh?

Now stay with me on this as you are about to get a little insight into Prophecy ... Prophecy is a little strange. Prophecy is God speaking through man. In Zechariah 12:10 it says "They shall look upon Me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for Him. Now did ya catch the person change from Me to Him? As the writer of prophecy ... It is, of course, the prophet speaking or writing, but it is also just as Jesus said ... It is Me talking. Jesus is the Word of God (John 1:1 and 1:14). It was Jesus that spoke these Words through all of the prophets. As He indicated in Isaiah 52:6 ... "Therefore My people shall know My name: therefore they shall know in that day that I Am He that doth speak: behold it is I."

Again, in Isaiah 48:16 He makes it sooooo clear. "Come ye near unto Me hear this; "I" have not spoken in secret from the beginning; from the time that it was there am "I" ... And now the Lord and His Spirit hath sent Me." ... Awesome huh?

Not only does Jesus reveal the Truth of the Trinity by saying The Lord and His Holy Spirit sent Me but shares with us that He has been from the beginning, just as the Apostle John revealed and that it is He that speaks to us in the Word of God (the Bible) as He is the Word of God.

In all prophecy, including the prophetic answer to Why did Jesus say why hast Thou forsaken Me on the Cross, dying for the sins of those looking upon Him and even our sins today, Jesus was saying what He has from the beginning to those that could understand ...

It Is Me!

Since there are 150 Psalms in the Bible, you can read a Psalm or two each day, and in no time, you'll have read them all and I suggest ya read em often as to know some of them by heart.

The Psalms of David Bible Quotes

You'll also start relating them to your own life, and when different trials arise, you'll find it comforting to read the Psalms of David and know that even God's anointed (Chosen) went through trying times, and they'll teach you a new way of prayer as well.

Some Psalms are in story form and some go back as far as Creation. You may recognize that you've sung many verses from Psalms in hymns and even contemporary Christian music throughout the years and never knew they were from Psalms.

When you read them, I encourage you to acquire a fondness for the 16th century language used in the translation of the Bible from Hebrew to English. It has an eloquence that can't be matched, if you'll open your heart to it.
