The book of Psalms (also called “the Psalter”) is not a random grab bag of Israel’s favorite songs, poems, and prayers. Rather, it’s a carefully arranged book that tells a unified story. It shows our need for God’s Word and God’s presence. It points us to God’s Messiah and his victory. And it teaches us how to live with Christ in all of life, trusting him truly, delighting in him deeply, and longing for him personally, as we await the day when we shall dwell in the house of the Lord forever.
