Resounding Psalms for Advent: Restore

We do not often emphasize the psalms during the Advent season, instead being eager to read about the prophecies, anticipating Jesus’ coming. Yet the psalms are God’s Word during terrible times to people who lived before God’s promises were fulfilled in our Savior’s coming. This Advent, we focus on several psalms as we use them to prepare to celebrate our Lord’s birth with open eyes and ears. Today we focus on Psalm 80, which pleads with the Lord of hosts, “Restore us!” The answer: God restored us in the person of Jesus Christ!
