This is the second post for my latest round of psalmtweets. The aim is that each tweet is faithful to a key aspect of a specific psalm, as well as pointing to a broader dynamic of the Psalter. This ‘design’ is an attempt to mirror the nature of the Psalter, in that individual psalms come together in a synergy which makes a greater whole.
The Psalms speak of a glorious future when we will see Yahweh’s face.
The Psalms explore the positive efficacy of Yahweh’s words and the destructive negativity of humanity’s speech.
The Psalms show that the life of faith is about relationships; with Yahweh, with His people and with our enemies.
The Psalms have harsh words for those of God’s people who do not live up to His instruction.
The Psalms speak of the need for clean hands. In Christ our hands are made clean.
The Psalms help us along the path; in God’s presence there is fullness of joy.
The Psalms tell us that we are the apple of God’s eye.
The Psalms give us language for personal prayer and corporate worship.
The Psalms tell us that both creation and Scripture testify to the glory and righteousness of Yahweh.
The Psalms need to be reread. For example, the name of our Lord Jesus is not found there. But He can be found there.
