In the opening pages of the Psalms, believers discover foundational truth for right living - and great delight - as children of God. Trusted theologian Dale Ralph Davis leads readers through a careful study of Psalms 1-12 with clear application for daily life.
Much like our troubles today, the Psalmist endured wickedness all around, a world hostile to the true God - and on a very personal level - deceit and persecution from his enemies. Readers are pointed toward the glorious rule of the Messiah, to whom the whole world belongs. In light of this realisation, we are prepared to face all kinds of troubles that would otherwise cause despair.
The righteous rely on God, and the Psalms teach us how. This book is ideal for use by small groups, as a teaching guide or for reference.
