    JEHOVAH GANAN The Lord Our Defense. The Hebrew word translated defense in Psalm 89:18 is translated shield. The Shield of Faith:Ephesians 6:16 Above all, taking the shield of Faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one What is our shield of faith? Faith is our knowledge of the Word of God. You have a protective shield that will stop the Devil and quench all the fiery darts of the enemy. Its strength is related to our trust and obedience to the Most High God.

    That God would set "his throne as the days of heaven " can refer to no one but King Jesus. This and many other magisterial phrases mark this as a Messianic Psalm. But for the simple believer it is enough to know that every promise God makes to us will be kept. In spite of our failings, He knows that we are but dust the LORD will never leave us or forsake us.

    Ps. 89 clearly shows that humans can have a personal Relationship with God. Human testomials does shed light into our souls to eliminate scepticism which would otherwise darken our lives. It is only then, through walking in His way that we become acquainted with His holiness. When God reveals Himself to man, there is nothing that can turn that man back except madness. Hence, I pray thus, that the Lord will shore up lmy sanity. I need to be sane to understand my life on Earth, and that I am in deed a child of God and all good reports, living my life according to His will.
  • Adherence in faith to God -- the absolute necessity for security of salvation. No security for apostasy. Saul started good, but lost his salvation through disbelief. Solomon committed grave sins too, but God corrected him with beatings of an iron rod. Christians, be prepared for beatings for disobedience. Apostates, you are lost, no beatings now, but it will come later and eternally with fire.
  • Blessed
    Verses 15 and verses33. The sound of the lord is different it so holy that it brings light to our life. GOD 'S LOVING KINDNESS IS ETERNAL HIS MERCY IS FAITHFUL FAITHFUL IS THE LORD . KEEP GOD IN YOUR MIND BECAUSE HE IS ALWAYS KEEPING YOU ON HIS MIND.
