Study Guide – Psalm 71:22-24



22 Then I will praise you with music on the harp,
    because you are faithful to your promises, O my God.
I will sing praises to you with a lyre,
    O Holy One of Israel.
23 I will shout for joy and sing your praises,
    for you have ransomed me.
24 I will tell about your righteous deeds
    all day long,
for everyone who tried to hurt me
    has been shamed and humiliated. NLT


Today’s study is simple and to the point. After 21 verses considering how the Lord is a refuge for us in times of trouble, the final three verses of Psalm 71 offer nothing but praise to God.


Read verses 22-24 and consider the following questions:


Why does the writer praise God?


How does the writer praise God?


Why do you think the writer praises God in these ways?


Why is it natural (and important) to speak about what the Lord has done?



Because the Lord is your refuge, respond to the Lord in praise. Consider the ways that the Lord has specifically helped you or has been there for you… and consider how you might share this praise with others in the next 24 hours.
