Every emotion of the heart is reflected in the Psalms with words that express our deepest and strongest feelings. They provide comfort and joy, leading us to the place where worship flows. This poetry on fire is divided into five books, mirroring the five books of Moses that form the first few books of the Old Testament. Together they convey the depth of our longing and fears, joys and celebration, becoming a mirror to the heart of God's people in our quest to experience God's presence.
Book Two is known as the Exodus Psalms. Like the ancient Hebrew book itself, which chronicles Israel's deliverance out of oppression, these psalms lament our suffering and long for similar redemption. Many poems are cries to God for help; they ask him to wake up and do something about our trials and trouble! Others wonder if God has forgotten his people in the midst of their pain and problems. Still other psalms cry for revival and renewal, praying from a place of weariness and ache. Then there are the poems which praise God for his faithfulness, protection, and grace-leading to faith and trust.
We have designed this study to help you explore these praises and prayers placed inside poems that spill out of a fiery, passionate heart. May this study of poetry on fire free you to become a passionate, sincere worshipper, and experience the heart of God anew in faith and worship.
