Saint Athanasius, a church leader in the early 300s was “devoted to the Psalms,” which he believed provided a view of our souls. Whatever your particular situation, in Psalms you will find words to address your need. The book of Psalms is the most familiar book in the Old Testament. Author Stephen Lennox shows us that the Psalms, though diverse, communicate one theme—God is King. God’s dominion encompasses the universe because he created and sustains it. This reign will never end because he is eternal and all-powerful.
Since the Bible is God’s revelation of himself, its primary benefit is to show us what God is like. The Psalms show us that God will bless those who make it their obsession to know and obey him, but those who disregard him will be punished. God knows the ways of the righteous and the wicked. He sees inside the heart.
