Psalms 26-31

What does it say?
Psalm 26: The psalmist ask the Lord to save him from the way of sinners and death because his way is God’s way.
Psalm 27: The psalmist loves and trust the Lord despite all that may be going wrong in the world; he trusts that the Lord will never leave him nor forsake him. 
Psalm 28: The psalmist prayer is for the Lord to hear him and help him because his way is not like the wicked; therefore, he trust that the Lord has already helped him and he exults in the Lord.
Psalm 29: The psalmist exhorts the sons of God to give the voice of the Lord credit for everything.
Psalm 30: The psalmist gives thanks to the Lord for saving him from death; he says that the Lord’s anger is for a moment but his favor is for a lifetime.
Psalm 31: The psalmist has lost strength because of his iniquity and is a reproach because of his enemies; however, he trusts in the Lord’s lovingkindness (grace) to save him from his enemies.

What does it mean?
There is one way that men should walk and that way is the Lord’s. God does not hear the man who does not walk in the Lord’s way. When a man turns to follow the Lord, God hears him and helps him in his distress. The best place to be is in the house of the Lord forever. Walking in this world is wearisome and we carry many burdens but the Lord’s burden is light and his way is straight; therefore, we should follow the Lord.

What shall I do?
I shall follow the way of the Lord Jesus Christ. I know that Jesus Christ is the way and the truth and the life; no one comes to the Father but through him. (Jn 14:6) Therefore, I shall follow the Lord Jesus Christ because at the end of his path is the house of God. This is where I shall rest forever. I shall rest from this weary world in the house of the Lord our God forever. I shall exult in Jesus Christ because he is the word of God through whom all things where made that where made. (Jn 1:3)
