Family Devotional Guide - 7/30/23

For the remainder of the summer months, we’ll be featuring a “Songs of the Summer” series by utilizing some of the D-Life material from the psalms. This series will include selections that aren’t already being covered in this summer’s D-Life groups. For those not already involved in the D-Life groups, this series will give you a taste of what the groups discuss each week. Please note that we’ll be launching new groups in September, so that will be a great time to get involved.


For this week’s lesson, we will be discussing Psalm 106:1-23. One suggested use for this material would be to break up the discussion questions into three days (and read the Bible study passage each time before discussing those questions).


Discussion Questions:

  • Have you ever forgotten the birthday or anniversary of someone special to you? If so, how did it make you feel? Why is it important not to do this?

  • In this historical Psalm, the writer recalls God’s faithfulness to His chosen people and their persistent forgetfulness of all He had done for them. In verse 1, for what two reasons did the writer call on God’s people to praise Him? How would you answer the writer’s question in verse 2?

  • In spite of God’s faithfulness and goodness to Israel, what confession did the writer make (v. 6)? In what ways can we relate to this confession today?

  • At the Red Sea, what did God’s people forget about His “wondrous works” (v. 7)? Even though God’s people rebelled against Him by the Red Sea, what did He do for them (v. 8-12)? How long did God’s people remember this (v. 13)? Why is forgetting God’s goodness so damaging to our faith?

  • At Mt. Horeb, there is an ultimate example of the Israelites’ forgetfulness of God’s faithfulness to them in Egypt. In what way did they rebel and sin against God their Savior at Mt. Horeb (v. 19-22)? Why was this exceedingly sinful? What did God say He would do to them because of their sin (v. 23a)?

  • What did Moses do to turn away God’s wrath from His people (v. 23b)? Read Exo. 32:9-14, 30-32. What specific things did Moses pray as “he stood in the breach” before God to intercede for his people? In what way does Moses show us a great example to follow?

  • In what ways are you guilty of forgetting God’s faithfulness in your own life? In what ways are we guilty of forgetting God’s faithfulness to us as a nation? What are the consequences of this? Why is it important for us to pray for revival and spiritual awakening in our land every time we meet as a D-Group?


This week’s material is taken from Pastor Bill Wilks’ D-Life Study Guides (Old Testament 2, Week 26: Study of the Psalms).
