Songs for Our Temple (Week 29: Ps. 85-87)

Jim takes us through Psalms 85-87 this week to think about how we fixate on the wrong “city” and lose our focus on God.

Psalms 85 this Psalms is a song of mercy. Are you remembering what God has done and wondering where he is now? Some days are rough with life issues; those are the times we need to sing for His Mercy and remember that God’s steadfast love and faithfulness meet together. His righteousness and peace embrace each other with a compassionate kiss.

Psalm 86

I love how Psalm 86 walks us through the stages of asking God for His help. David makes his request, then remembers God’s faithfulness, then returns to the present problem and finally asks for help for the best of reasons: that those who oppose Him will recognize who God is.

PSALMS 86 I agree that Psalms is like we want to run our own lives until we have problems, then we call upon God or ask God, where are you?

PSALMS 87 Where do you meet God? Most people put the things they treasure out in front so the world may gaze at its glory? That is where the Israelites put their Gods up high on the mountain tops.

That’s an interesting Observation, Jim. And God called them not to the high places, but the place He chose. A challenge we struggle with: God wants us to do what He calls us to do, not do what we “think” He wants or what we assume is best. Listening to Him matters.
