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 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.
The “Deuteronomy Psalms,” Book Five of the Hebrew poems, is the capstone to the poetry on fire. Beginning with extolling God’s constant love and encouraging his people to declare God’s goodness to the nations, these ancient poems celebrate God’s Word and emphasize his praise. This book is anchored by the longest of the poems, Psalm 119. It draws our attention to the Word of God, celebrating it and lifting it high for all to follow. This collection also encourages everyone everywhere to shine with praise for God’s goodness and mighty deeds. And even when they petition the Lord for help, worship is a breath away.
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.
