Discussion for Psalms 51

  • Isaac
    this Psalm is a Psalm of some one who truly repent from his sin, He is a good example to all of us, when we realise that we have sinned let us confess our sin to God and repent from it, let us not make a habit of sinning, REMEMBER DAVID NEVER REPEATED ONE SIN AGAIN AND AGAIN! He confessed and Repented from his sin. This is a beautiful lesson to the Body of christ (the church ) shalom.

    The first commandment was so clear that the one must be very careful about its transgression.
    That is" Thou shall have no other gods before me". In fact the previous that I took time to read again I became so afraid that since then I have been pleading for his tender mercies to forgive my trespasses.

    Response to Jnr's comments: When everything fails use the WEAPON OF PRAISE, PRAISE GOD RELENTLESSLY HE WILL ANSWER YOU. PSALMS 18, 34, 68, 113, 103, 100, 149. If you can, praise God at the beginning of every hour. Set the alarm on your cellphone. You can use one of my favorites: PRAISE TO YOU, LORD JESUS CHRIST, KING OF ENDLESS GLORY. Memorize it say it wholeheartedly, it works am a living testimo
