Do you ever just randomly open your Bible because you are in a hurry or you just don’t know what to read?  Perhaps you hope the Lord will show you something special by just opening anywhere.  I have to admit I have done that.

But as I am reading through the Bible this year, I’ve come to the Psalms, and I’ve been reminded of something.  When my husband, Autry, went home to be with the Lord, I found myself reading in the Psalms so many days.  What a wonderful book!  It’s a book of peace, comfort, instruction, encouragement, direction; full of descriptions of who God is,what He does and has done; past history as well as future things.

So, if you are “just looking” for a good place to read, you can’t go wrong with the Psalms.  God will meet you there and give you what your heart needs.  David knew what a great God we have and he wrote the following:

“Be of good courage, and He shall strengthen your heart, all you that hope in the Lord.” Psalm 31:24

“I will instruct you and teach you in the way which you shall go; I will guide you with my eye.”  Psalm 32:8

So, open the Psalms.  You  will be blessed!
