Journal Prompts

* A quick note on journaling: if you're new to this practice, our journey through the book of Psalms will be a great way to get started. The most important step to forming this discipline in your life is to write anything and write often. Journaling is an incredible way to slow down, digest the content of a text, let your brain internalize thoughts that may come up, and keep a record for future reflection on what God was speaking to you during your reading. Journaling can take many forms such as written prayers, bullet points, stream of consciousness, or even poetry. Try some different methods and find the one that works best for you.


Psalm 2:1-3

Journal regarding rebellion against God in the world and in your personal life. Has there

been moments in your life where you have viewed submission to God as bondage, His

sovereignty as restrictive and His will demanding?


Read 1 John 5:3-5


Psalm 2:4-9

When you first read the phrase “He who sits in the heavens laughs” what was your

immediate thought? After understanding that statement how has that changed your

perspective of God?

Read Isaiah chapter 40


Psalm 2:10-12

God has called you as an influencer to resign your aspiration for autonomy. How does

that work out practically for you?

Prayer

“O God of earth and altar, bow down and hear our cry; our earthly rulers falter, our people drift and die; the walls of gold entomb us, the swords of scorn divide; take not Thy thunder from us, but take away our pride” (G. K. Chesterton, “O God of Earth and Altar”). Amen.”
