Category Archives: Honey for the Heart – Lessons from the Psalms

There are many spiritual lessons that we as Christians can learn from a study of the Psalms. I have been writing devotionals and blogs on the book of Psalms for several reasons. Primarily for my own growth and maturity in the Word of God during my personal devotions. I am publishing them on my blog so that others can view them and perhaps be helped by the Spirit and the Word of God. Honey for the Heart – Lessons from the Psalms is a follow up to Gleanings from the proverbs that many on this blog have become familiar with.

Psalms, like Proverbs, is a book of wisdom, it is in the bible to teach us about the Lord and his Word. The Psalms were written to praise, worship, and confess to God through poetry. The bible is timeless. The wisdom in Psalms was true when David, Asaph, Solomon and others wrote them, and it is true today. Many of the Worship hymns today are rooted in Psalms.
When the psalmist sought to express the delight and satisfaction he found in God’s words, he said, “How sweet are your words to my taste, sweeter than honey to my mouth!” (Psalm 119:103). The Psalms were written from the heart and to the heart as they reveal the faithful and loving character of God in any life situation we might find ourselves in. They are, without doubt, Honey for the Heart. So welcome to Honey for the Heart – Lessons from the Psalms.
