As James Brandon read and studied the Psalms over the years, he came to realize that the Lord was talking to our souls through these ancient songs.
He was also struck by a book written in the 1800s by a man named Hawker, who after reading one of the Psalms would exclaim: "Oh my soul, what is this that thou hast found in the Holy Writ?" He would talk to his soul after reading the text.
The author began to read the Psalms and reflect on what each one said to his soul. He has done that for fifty years.
In this book, he focuses on Psalms forty-two to seventy-two: the Exodus Book of the Psalms, which encompasses restoration and redemption from bondage. They are songs that teach salvation, the doctrines of the faith, and how to take care of your soul.
The Psalms are a wonderland of devotion. They have enlightened the author's mind and encouraged his spirit. They can do the same for you-all while providing principles for living this life as you help others walk with the Lord.
