Chronological Reading Plan for April 19, Psalms 121, 123, 124, 125, 128, 129, 130

Today's readings are Psalms 121, 123, 124, 125, 128, 129, 130. Tomorrow's are 2 Samuel 1-4. 

Tomorrow, we start the book of 2 Samuel, which recounts the reign of David as king (about 1010-970 BC), We will see David's ascent, his tremendous victories and the expansion of Israel's borders, stretching from Egypt to the Euphrates. God is still making His people into a mighty nation!

We will also see David's humanness as he falls into sin with Bathsheba and the impact that sin has on David, his family and his people. Throughout it all, David's heart for God will be put on display. His anguish over his sin and the grace he receives, in spite of his weakness and propensity to stumble can and should be an encouragement to us all. David never takes God's grace for granted, is always contrite and repentant and consistently praises God for His grace and blessing. 


Here's a map that will show much of Israel's development under David.
