How to Deepen Your Faith with a 15-Day Bible Plan and Worship Suggestions on Psalms of Ascent

I pray you will be blessed by this month’s Bible Plan on the Psalms of Ascent. This collection of 15 Psalms (Psalms 120-134) is rooted in the spiritual heritage of ancient Israel. These Psalms were sung by the Israelites during their pilgrimage ascent in the hills to Jerusalem for three annual festivals. The three festivals were: Pesach (Passover), Shavuot (also known as Weeks or Pentecost), and Sukkot (also referred to as Tabernacles or Tents or Booths).


This journey of ascent symbolizes both a physical and spiritual journey toward the presence of God. In our modern context, these timeless verses continue to offer wisdom, comfort, and inspiration to those seeking a deeper connection with the Lord.


Starting your own journey of ascent leading up to Passover and Easter is a perfect way to prepare your heart for these great festivities where we will honor our Lord.

The FREE eleven-page 15-Day Bible Plan on the Psalms of Ascent was created due to popular request! Here are some tools I added to help you more engage with these beautiful Psalms.


1.    Each day I have provided a worship song about the Psalm. Several of the songs are verbatim to help you with memorizing. I find that listening to a worship song after reading the chapter brings new meaning to the chapter. All you have to do is click on the song title on the PDF and you will be directed to the song on YouTube. Most of the artists are not well known but are singing their hearts out to the Lord. Most are slow and melodic but one has jazz upbeat. I pray you enjoy this addition.


2.    I have included a page in the journal for you to write out your own song to the Lord based on the reading. This is very new practice for me but I have found it connects me to the chapter more. It is a private and special way to praise and honor the Lord. I encourage you to try and write your own song, don’t be discouraged and say I am not a song writer. God has made you and gifted you with so many talents, one of which is the talent of praising Him!


Here is a snippet of my song to the Lord based on Psalm 121:

As I gaze upon the hill and wonder how to move,
I cry out to you, oh Lord. I am reminded Lord that
You are my God, you are my strength!
You are my helper, You are my healer!
You are the Maker of heaven and earth!

3.    I have provided daily prompts to go along with each chapter. I pray this added time of reflection gives you more insight and excitement about each Psalm. I pray you enjoy these added prompts.

 


Enjoy this song today! This is just one of the fifteen songs I chose for you to listen to as you journey in the Psalms of Ascent!



Please let me know how you enjoy this new Bible Plan on the Psalms of Ascent. I would love to know what the Lord has shown you on your journey.
