    I give honor to my LORD and Saviour, early in the morning I give him thanks,Praise, he will not dwell in wickedness or evil,cleanse me so I may live in His presence. He is a forgiving GOD. I will forever call upon his Holy Name! HE IS MY SOURCE, ROCK OF SALVATION! THE FOUNTAIN OF LIVING WATER I DRINK DAILY!

    Always read this psalm before i go to church as it is only by his mercy we can enter his house
  • Michael C.
    This Psalm is a powerful instruction for the inner life. In verse 3, the word "direct" should more accurately be "set in order, give account" and "my prayer" in italics would not have to be added for completing the sentence. So when we appear before God in our morning prayer and Bible study, we come as "setting in order, and giving account" to Him: the rest of the Psalm is for examining ourselves.

    The Lord Jesus knew us before we were born and He knew who would accept him and who would not all will not accept Jesus and No man can come to Jesus unless he draw him and after he does and u hear his voice that mean he has open your spiritual ears that the first step.after that u must repent of your sins and pray for the Holy Ghost and live a life for Jesus .realizing the devil will fight u pt 1

    TO SONJAWILSON - PS. 5 -- LOOK UP MATT.4:19; 4:21; 4:25; 9:9; FOR REF. TO JESUS "'CHOOSING' US, AND NOT WE CHOOSING HIM. HE KNOWS THE HEARTS OF ALL MEN AND CHOOSES THOSE WHO HE KNOWS WILL FOLLOW HIM. AND WHY NOT? WHY WOULD HE CHOOSE THOSE WHOM HE KNOWS WON'T FOLLOW? GRANTED, SOME LEFT HIM AFTER FOLLOWING HIM, BUT HE ALSO KNEW THIS WOULD HAPPEN. IT WAS THEIR CHOICE TO LEAVE HIM.
  • Irene123
    TO SONJAWILSON - PS. 5 -- WE DO NOT 'ACCEPT' CHRIST; HE 'CHOOSES' US AND DRAWS US -- MATT.15:16; MATT. 20: 16. WHEN TURN TO HIM IN REPENTANCE - HE IS DRAWING YOU; YOU AREN'T CHOOSING HIM; YOU HAVE TO 'THINK' ABOUT THIS CONCEPT AND ASK - IN JESUS NAME - FOR UNDERSTANDING; HE'LL GIVE IT TO. UN-REPENTANT MAN CANNOT 'CHOOSE' GOD. YOU MAY THINK YOU ARE CHOOSING HIM, BUT HE CHOOSES YOU.
