The Depth of the Psalms

King David
I am currently reading through the Psalms in my Bible reading. What a blessing to have a book in the Bible that reflects a way to communicate with God that appeals to the heart-felt emotions and psychological proclivities that all of humanity of every age can relate with. My favorite thing to contemplate as I read the Psalms is the idea that they are the prayer book of Jesus (in a prophetic and personal sense). We see and hear many of the prayers of David intimated by Jesus in his public life and ministry. We also see him personally fulfilling many of the things stated in the Psalms. I think this is probably my favorite things about the Psalms; they are about Jesus, and reflect an intimacy with God that can really be found nowhere else in all of Scripture.
