#Psalmtweets weeks 12 and 13

During this time the character limit on Twitter was doubled from 120 to 240 characters. My daily tweets about a psalm have increased in length a little and it is no longer necessary to use contractions with ampersands and missing spaces. Perhaps it has made me lazy!

There are 3 pictures from Images of Grace by Jacqui Grace, which I have coloured.

Ps. 78: Asaph reminds the people of God’s dealings with their ancestors who rebelled. Also how he chose David from the tribe of Judah.

Ps. 79: Asaph prays that God will show his power against those who have destroyed the temple and city so that his people will praise God.

Ps.80: Asaph likens his nation to a cultivated vine. He asks God to hear, restore and to make His face shine upon them and save them.

Ps. 81: Asaph begins with a call to praise. A warning from God about not having other gods and a promise if they listen to God and follow him.

Ps. 82: Asaph speaks of God’s judging of unjust rulers, of underdogs who need help and protection. He asks God to judge the earth and all the nations.

Ps. 83: Asaph asks God to act against the nations conspiring against God. Blow them away like chaff or thistledown. Let them know that you are Lord.

Ps. 84: The sons of Korah sing about God’s dwelling place. Those who live with God, who trust in God and whose strength is in God are blessed.

Psalm 84

Psalm 84

 

Ps. 85: The sons of Korah pray to God about their land and people. They move from complaint, to listening to God and end with hope. A way to pray!

 

Ps. 86: David recognises his need of the forgiving God. He praises him, requests an undivided heart. (Book title by @LucyMillsBooks) He desires to go on learning God’s way to live and that his enemies should notice God’s goodness. #psalmtweets @JustCardsDirect

 

Psalm 86

Psalm 86

Ps. 87:The sons of Korah sing about Zion, the city of God, about other nations – those which acknowledge God are adopted as if they were born in Zion.

Ps. 88: This Psalm begins with a statement of faith, but goes on to list Heman the Ezrahite’s troubles and feelings of abandonment.

 

Ps. 89: Ethan the Ezrahite ends Book 3 with praise to God for who He is and what He does, His covenant with David. (Who is the rejected anointed one? Saul?) ends with praise

 

Psalm 92

Psalm 92

Ps. 90: Moses prays about God’s faithfulness, human mortality and sinfulness. He asks for wisdom to live well and to have God’s blessing on ‘the work of our hands’.

 

Ps. 91: A psalm of promises. God’s protection, faithfulness, guardian angels,deliverance, long life and salvation

 

Ps. 92: Praise and music proclaim God’s love and faithfulness. God’s enemies will perish, but the righteous continue to bear fruit in old age.
