Bible studies for writers | Psalm 76

I’m part of a YWAM (Youth With A Mission) global prayer newsletter, and shortly after I awoke this morning, an email came in with an update from our YWAM base in Ukraine. Normally, the newsletters contain only written content, but this morning’s prayer request featured two videos, one of YWAM members passing out food in… Continue reading Bible studies for writers | Psalm 76

Bible studies for writers | Psalm 75

The tune “Do Not Destroy” must have been a catchy little number, for this is the fourth psalm that is to be sung to its beat. If you remember, we encountered the same reference to “Do Not Destroy” in psalms 57, 58 and 59 (yes, I had to look that up), and I commented that… Continue reading Bible studies for writers | Psalm 75

I had a car once, Ol’ Whitey I called her. I can’t even remember what kind she was, but she was the only car I ever bought brand new and paid for in full. And she was my newspaper car, so she had a hard, hard life. I drove her hundreds of miles at a… Continue reading Bible studies for writers | Psalm 74

Bible studies for writers | Psalm 73

Money and wealth are so darn confusing! We need it, but we shouldn’t “want” it. When we have it, life can be easier, but it also can be a thousand times harder! And, ohhhhh, let’s not even talk about envying the rich. Ok, just kidding. Let’s do. As you can see from this psalm, it’s… Continue reading Bible studies for writers | Psalm 73

Bible studies for writers | Psalm 72

The subtext of this psalm is a little confusing: it’s labeled “A psalm of Solomon” but ends with “(This ends the prayers of David son of Jesse).” So, I don’t really know who wrote this, but the message is beautiful - and a little more flowery and poetic compared to the ones we have been… Continue reading Bible studies for writers | Psalm 72

Bible studies for writers | Psalm 71

I am the worst evangelist. I’ve helped pass out many a pamphlet and “good news” leaflets, but I’m here to admit, I didn’t enjoy most of it. I don’t like getting in people’s faces and telling them they’re sinners and liars and hypocrites. It feels dirty to me, but we had one student tell us… Continue reading Bible studies for writers | Psalm 71

Bible studies for writers | Psalm 70

Sometimes it’s hard to pray earnestly in times of despair and hardship. It’s even harder to grasp remnants of faith and almost impossible to feel joyful. And that’s ok. God sees us, even when we think He’s not looking. He hears us, even when we think He’s not listening. He has a purpose and promises… Continue reading Bible studies for writers | Psalm 70

Bible studies for writers | Psalm 69

Something new about King David occurred to me, and it happened after I read verses 6 and 7, and I underlined the words “humiliated” and “humiliation.” In these lines, David essentially is saying that he doesn’t want his actions to reflect on good people around him. He says, let me be the one to bear… Continue reading Bible studies for writers | Psalm 69

Bible studies for writers | Psalm 68

I can’t help but dedicate every psalm I read lately to Ukraine. Appropriately, the notes in my Bible give this description as the theme of this psalm: “Remembering God’s glory and power. Times and cultures change, but God is always majestically present as defender and provider.” Sum it up: Lord, send them scattering!To every corner… Continue reading Bible studies for writers | Psalm 68

Bible studies for writers | Psalm 67

I absolutely adore the thought of God’s face smiling with favor on us. I love it so much that’s about all I could picture when reading through this short psalm. It made me feel so happy and loved. Sum it up: I love it when I can feel your graceAnd your gaze smiling down on… Continue reading Bible studies for writers | Psalm 67
