    I came to this forum so to read scripture while away from my bible. Verae,12 is what I was seeking but reading the entire Ch gamee pause and I was moved to deeply repent and get out of areas of my past that I was allowing to block me from the full and perfect light if Christ.

    We complain about waiting on God.He also tells us in Psalm 46:10, to be still and know that I am God.It seems like it take years for God to answer prayers, but this scripture explains to us that one day is like a thousand years to God.This shows us that God is a on time God and that we are not on our timing, but we are on His timing.We seem to jump the gun on things we ask for and then after He give it to us we don't appreciate it.On today wait on God's timing and even if it takes years for Him to answer remember a day is like a thousand years to Him.

    To everyone who YEARNS for the knowledge of the TRUTH. Please study this chapter for all it is worth. Think of verses 5 through 10 as a game of Who Am I. Those discussed in 5-10 truly are as a tale that IS DISCUSSED regularly today in 2015. Then understand the purpose of this chapter in verses 12 and 13. Those being discussed in 5-10 are literally days away from being judged which also kicks of the Great Tribulation in Spring 2015. May the LORD Jesus Christ bless all who yearn for the knowledge of the truth. May the LORD show the same the mystery of the Gospel of Christ. Amen
  • Edidiong Nde for verse 12
    Its a psalm that gets us to rationalize as well reflect on our existence on earth consequently aligning with His perfect will and thereby reaping the benefits associated with its compliance. " Wisdom is the principal thing ". Shalom!
