Psalm 19-24 (The Daily Walk Bible).

Psalm 22 is a marvelous depiction of the sacrifice of Jesus Christ. He points us to it by crying out the first verse from the cross, but it goes beyond that. His mocking is portrayed. His thirst is depicted. It even predicts the casting of lots for His clothing! Finally, verse 31, “he has done it,” may even be a precursor of “it is finished!”

This Psalm, in addition to teaching us about Jesus Christ, also shows us something about life. Expressions of despair are countered with expressions of faith, reminding us that even when things look bleak, we can put our trust in God. And even though so much may come against us in life, we can boldly proclaim “you have rescued me” because of the final victory that is our in Jesus Christ!
