I have been composing a daily tweet on a psalm for over two years now. These tweets are in canonical order and I am now on journey number 6. I have made #psalmtweets a spiritual discipline as part of my daily devotions. In the current journey of tweets I am attempting to let the Psalms speak for themselves about what they are and what they do. Here are the first 10 from voyage 6:
The Psalms are a day and night meditative prayer school.
The Psalms explore the kingship of Yahweh and his anointed son.
The Psalms express absolute trust in Yahweh as a protective shield.
The Psalms give us words to call on Yahweh and reassurance that he hears us.
The Psalms show us that Yahweh cares about how others treat us. We can, and should, talk to Him.
The Psalms reveal that sometimes we must wait for Yahweh’s deliverance.
The Psalms help us reflect and confess by enriching our prayer vocabulary.
The Psalms celebrate Yahweh as Creator; they help us worship Him and delight in Creation.
The Psalms continually reflect on Yahweh who rules from Zion; a God who dwells with His people.
The Psalms teach us about both Yahweh’s faithfulness and the fickleness of His creatures.
