The words of old are still applicable for us today. God’s Word is a lamp unto our feet, a light to our path. In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God and the Word was God. If we say that His Word can’t still speak to us today, we are saying that God Himself can no longer speak to us.
I don’t know about you, but I’m still in need of God to be my Shepherd, to lead me beside quiet waters, to restore my soul, to guide me in paths of righteousness.
God has given us the book of Psalms to show us the humanity of the Psalmist and to remind us of where our hope must be placed. The Psalms remind us that even David, a man after God’s own heart, had failures and was cleansed, worshiped freely, had many times where he didn’t know what to do, and proclaimed his trust in His God despite the scary circumstances around him.
