    We have many reasons why to love Jehovah God. As verse 16 brings out, he has given us our beautiful earthly home. He also provides food and other things we need in order to sustain our life. We should always remember to thank God for these things

    David makes it clear that God is in the heavens and absolutely in control of everything and everyone. However if we get no more answers and help than the idol worshipers we should remember Isaiah 59 :2 "Your iniquities separate you from God,your sins have hid His face from you so He does not hear us." repent and reestablish the communications with God. Hosea 4 :6 my people parish because - -

    is the NKJV as same as the KJV?

    Wow! I'm increasingly astounded by Our Father's sheerness to move, impact and exact Himself in people's hearts and minds. Lets us always be careful not to be idolatrous, praising man and man made things above Him. Secularization is a HUGE problem. We need to keep our lives and environments holy! Satan and his evildoers will ALWAYS try to remove godly ways fro our lives. But praise be to God for His PRECIOUS Gift who Shepard's us in this fallen world, and leads us His loved ones through the narrow gate.

  • Julius Lawrence for verse 16
    God want mankind to be free, but mankind is under the influence of the enemy of the devil . That 's why we have so much wars and rumors of wars. Freedom is one of the most important things to God, but mankind always want to take away that which do not belong to him. We have a choice to choose, but we instead choose war. One day, there will be peace, when Christ return. but until that day, there will always be wars. We as believers MUST do what God has assigned us to do. Everybody can 't do the same thing, but we can do something PRAY and ask for His guidance to do that which He has given us to do. Freedom is not easy to get, but with God, all things are possible through Christ Jesus.
