THE TWEETED BIBLE

Text: Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence. (Psalm 91:3)

Tweet: Human inoculations are fine, as far as they go, but divine immunizations are far better. The man who has received a divine immunization is invulnerable to all viruses.

THE TWEETED BIBLE

Text: I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust. (Psalm 91:2)

Tweet: The most important word in Psalm 91 is the little word “my.” It’s one thing to say, “The Lord is a refuge.” It’s another thing altogether to say, “The Lord is my refuge” in whom “I trust.” The former is but an acknowledgment, the latter an appropriation, assuring us of God’s sovereign safekeeping.

THE TWEETED BIBLE

Text: He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. (Psalm 91:1)

Tweet: It is only those who continuously seek God’s glory, not their own, and God’s face, not His favors, who dwell and abide in safety and security under the shadow of the Almighty.

THE TWEETED BIBLE

Text: He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. (Psalm 91:1)

Tweet: God promises His perpetual protection to those who dwell in the secret place of the most High, not to spiritual dawdlers who presume they can drift in
and out of God’s presence at their pleasure.

THE TWEETED BIBLE

Text: And he spake a parable unto them to this end, that men ought always to pray, and not to faint; Saying, There was in a city a judge, which feared not God, neither regarded man: And there was a widow in that city; and she came unto him, saying, Avenge me of mine adversary. And he would not for a while: but afterward he said within himself, Though I fear not God, nor regard man; Yet because this widow troubleth me, I will avenge her, lest by her continual coming she weary me. And the Lord said, Hear what the unjust judge saith. And shall not God avenge his own elect, which cry day and night unto him, though he bear long with them? I tell you that he will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth? (Luke 18:1-8)

Tweet: Although a just God is pleased rather than pestered by persevering prayer, it is the praying “pest” who persistently peppers Heaven with his pleas whose prayers prove to be prevailing.

THE TWEETED BIBLE

Text: Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment? (Matthew 6:25)

Tweet: True trust in the Lord is testified to by taking no thought for your life.

THE TWEETED BIBLE

Text: And when neither sun nor stars in many days appeared, and no small tempest lay on us, all hope that we should be saved was then taken away. But after long abstinence Paul stood forth in the midst of them, and said, Sirs, ye should have hearkened unto me, and not have loosed from Crete, and to have gained this harm and loss. And now I exhort you to be of good cheer: for there shall be no loss of any man’s life among you, but of the ship. For there stood by me this night the angel of God, whose I am, and whom I serve, Saying, Fear not, Paul; thou must be brought before Caesar: and, lo, God hath given thee all them that sail with thee. Wherefore, sirs, be of good cheer: for I believe God, that it shall be even as it was told me. Howbeit we must be cast upon a certain island. (Acts 27:20-26)

Tweet: You must hear God in the nights of life to believe Him in the tempests of life. Then, and only then, can you be sure of all God has said, in spite of the storms squalling all around you.

THE TWEETED BIBLE

Text: Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened. Or what man is there of you, whom if his son ask bread, will he give him a stone? Or if he ask a fish, will he give him a serpent? If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask him? (Matthew 7:7-11)

Tweet: God’s good and gracious gifts come to those who pray for them. Their treasures are found by those who tenaciously seek them and the doors to them are opened to those who diligently knock upon them.
