Questions Asaph Asked

Someone one said if you want to strengthen your relationships with people, read Proverbs. If you want to grow in your relationship with the Lord, read Psalms. This week’s quest will take you through the book of Psalms as we study the questions that Asaph asked. Most of them are directed to God; some are asked to the reader. In your journal or notebook, be sure to record: (1) To whom was the question asked? (2) What was the response? (3) What difference did the question make?  (4) What do you realize about God that you didn’t before this week’s quest?

Please post your thoughts and insights. Everyone can  learn from everyone.
