Every emotion of the heart is reflected in the Psalms with words that express our deepest and strongest feelings. They provide comfort and joy, leading us to the place where worship flows. This poetry on fire is divided into five books, mirroring the Five Books of Moses that form the first few books of the Old Testament. Together they convey the depth of our longing and fears, joys and celebration, becoming a mirror to the heart of God’s people in our quest to experience God’s presence.
Book One of the Psalms is the Genesis Psalms, composed of poems and songs of man and creation. They explore the splendor of our world, in all of its glory and grandeur; the way of righteousness versus the way of the wicked; and the glory and honor of mankind. You will discover more of who our Creator is as our Best Friend, Good Shepherd, and Mighty One. There are songs of praise for God’s goodness and glory; there are songs of lament for man’s wickedness and injustice. And finally, the prayers reflecting human frailty: the ones for healing and help; protection and provision; trouble and thanksgiving.
We have designed this study to help you explore these praises and prayers placed inside poems that spill out of a fiery, passionate heart. May this study of poetry on fire free you to become a passionate, sincere worshipper, and experience the heart of God anew in faith and worship.
