Pain drives us closer to God, or farther away. David shares his experiences and emotions in the Psalms. He always ends up on the side of faith. I share the Bible text, some notes of encouragement, then bless you out of the experiences in the Psalm. We all need the strength and encouragement of blessings.

INTRODUCTION
 Jesus said to his disciples (Jn 6:63) that his words to them were spirit and life. Soit is when God speaks. His Word accomplishes things, such as the Creation of  the world, the destiny of men and nations, and the justification of sinners, whoare then no longer condemned, but free.Our Heavenly Father is the giver of life and of all good gifts (Js 1:17). Through Jesus He spoke to us words of life. My desire is to impart to you today words of life that are based in God’s Word, the Bible.Our Heavenly Father is the creator of our human spirits. Hebrews 12:9 encour-ages us to submit to the Father of our spirits, so we may live. We are learning to start where God starts as He makes us and grows us up asHis children: namely, with our human spirit. “For what man knows the thingsof a man, except the spirit of a man which is in him? Even so the things of Godno human can know, but the Spirit of God knows Him intimately.” (I Cor 2:11)God’s Holy Spirit has to transform us when we are born again. He has to reveal to us what God is really like and He walks with us every day so we can obey God’s will. When we bless people’s spirit, they are touched by the Holy Spirit at a profound level.I have been studying God’s Word and He has been speaking to my spirit. Using His words as my basis, I want to bless you now as you read with your god-given, human spirit fully aware.Read each Psalm and my notes of encouragement. From God’s Word I bless your spirit to benefit by the inspired man of God who wrote the text. Read andsoak in God’s goodness to you.Hebrews 4 says Jesus has gone through everything we have experienced, so wecan go to Him, knowing He understands how we feel. He empathizes with us,but He did not sin then and He can show us how to cope and not sin today. Je-sus used to read the Psalms written by David. Jesus quoted from them, even ashe was dying (Ps 22). David’s experienced provided Jesus with link between hisown human situation and His heavenly Father’s heart.Now we also can look into David’s “prayer diary,” the Book of Psalms, to link  with Father ourselves. David wrote down every trial for us to know God under-stands us as He did the “man after His own heart.” As we empathize with Davidin his pain, his pain and doubts, we can also be lifted up by his responses of  faith and praise and prayer. God’s living Word rejuvenates our spirit to new  faith and comfort in God.In each Psalm I have found a theme that may speak to your own experience.Read and re-read the ones you need to rejuvenate your spirit. God bless you!
