- the rapport, the relationship between the Psalmist and God; it is intimate! The relationship reflects consideration, empathy, and awareness, as well as desire for continued relationship and guidance and blessing
- the overt plea for revenge or negative consequences, or violent consequences to fall on the guilty or opposition, in terms that reflect faith that God is omnipotence, meaning He is all powerful
- understanding of God's omniscience (that He knows everything, everything, everything) and that He is omnipresence (everywhere at once, everywhere everywhere)
Do you accept these psalms to reflect truth? How does New Testament effect your perspective?
How do your decisions, actions, political views reflect these Psalms?
Is there a part of these Psalms that is hard for you to understand or assimilate at this point?
Touching on the idea of "disabled," do you think that part of God's plan is that we stretch, and give and grow and long towards Him and our eternal reward?
Oh Father, awesome creator, even though we scarce can fathom Your greatness, or Your character, or Your might, we are grateful that you called us to be Yours and that you are revealing Yourself to us, and are ever molding, working on, and growing us each individually, with nothing ever hidden!
If you have had the reigns (139:13)then nothing was by accident, and we lift ourselves, the "normal," and the "afflicted," and ask You to lead, guide and direct, that YOUR WILL would be revealed and worked out through US Your willing vessels. To You we give all glory and honor. In Jesus's name we pray, amen.
