This week we looked at Psalm 22. Psalm 22 is an oft-quoted section of Scripture. The opening verse: “My God, my God! Why have you forsaken me?” was quoted by Jesus from the cross. Devoid of the context in which David wrote the Psalm, it can appear to be a Psalm of lament. Reading to the end though, it becomes apparent that this is a Psalm of victory. Jesus is about restoring and redeeming – much like he did with David’s apparent loss in battle. Jesus’ restoration begins with our repentance (turning from sin toward Jesus) and belief.
