    It's amazing how God speaks to us through His holy word. I am going through something right now that I didn't forsee happening, but this Psalm assures me that God already knows about it and He will deliver me from them that rise up against me. Praise His holy name.

  • Pamela Carter for verse 14
    I have read that Psalm so very many times and I dont remember seeing that particular verse the way I saw it this morning. Yes, it is true. My, my, my so many circumstances against me, obstacles, it was, is His hand. He has been calling me to come closer to Him. I have disobeyed, to put it simply. I love HIM so much, HE is magnificent, all powerful, all loving and all Holy and True. HE is Loving Just and True. He only ever calls us closer to Him. Not to punish but to give us opportunities to get to Know Him more and more and more. John 17:3 this is life eternal, to know God and His Son whom He sent" To know Him is to love Him. I confess undisplined flesh, I plead the Blood of the Lamb. Please continue to draw me Yahweh and we will run after you. After you have corrected me use me to draw multitudes to You. Oh Holy and most Perfect One. My dearest papa, my only treasure. Please forgive me and help me. I love you.

    Wow, time is catching up to the Living Word of the Living God. Verse 11 highlights this in a huge way! They are certainly using GPS cell phones license plate scanners computers to track us in our steps by use of satellites and cameras bowing down to the earth. Only a liar could deny that! Praise the LORD Jesus Christ for opening our eyes as we finish out the last days. Blessings to all who yearn for the knowledge of the truth! Amen
