This is the 4th post of my latest round of Psalmtweets.
The Psalms show that suffering and illness are part of the life of faith.
But trust, hope & faith are the greater part.
The Psalms teach us about The Way.
Yahweh’s instruction is more than just knowledge.
The Psalter teaches us to sing new songs;
this is more about renewal than new words.
The Psalms tell us that the life of faith is an experience of God-tasting, God perceiving, feeling and God-talk.
The Psalms teach us, perhaps surprisingly, about the armour of God.
The Psalms map the loving-kindness of Yahweh.
The Psalms help us rest in God.
Resting in Yahweh is key, whatever is happening in our lives.
The life of faith is a challenge.
We can call upon the Lord to make haste to help us on the path.
The Psalms enable us, as creatures, to understand our frailty before our Creator.
The Psalter shows us that the right response to deliverance is the singing of new songs.
