The value of the Divine blessing.
- Let us always look to God's providence. In all the affairs and business of a family we must depend upon his blessing. 1. For raising a family. If God be not acknowledged, we have no reason to expect his blessing; and the best-laid plans fail, unless he crowns them with success. 2. For the safety of a family or a city. Except the Lord keep the city, the watchmen, though they neither slumber nor sleep, wake but in vain; mischief may break out, which even early discoveries may not be able to prevent. 3. For enriching a family. Some are so eager upon the world, that they are continually full of care, which makes their comforts bitter, and their lives a burden. All this is to get money; but all in vain, except God prosper them: while those who love the Lord, using due diligence in their lawful callings, and casting all their care upon him, have needful success, without uneasiness or vexation. Our care must be to keep ourselves in the love of God; then we may be easy, whether we have little or much of this world. But we must use the proper means very diligently. Children are God's gifts, a heritage, and a reward; and are to be accounted blessings, and not burdens: he who sends mouths, will send meat, if we trust in him. They are a great support and defence to a family. Children who are young, may be directed aright to the mark, God's glory, and the service of their generation; but when they are gone into the world, they are arrows out of the hand, it is too late to direct them then. But these arrows in the hand too often prove arrows in the heart, a grief to godly parents. Yet, if trained according to God's word, they generally prove the best defence in declining years, remembering their obligations to their parents, and taking care of them in old age. All earthly comforts are uncertain, but the Lord will assuredly comfort and bless those who serve him; and those who seek the conversion of sinners, will find that their spiritual children are their joy and crown in the day of Jesus Christ.
Commentary by Matthew Henry, 1710.

I love this psalms. I had a prayer that I found in a store that was this psalm typed up and I had it on my ref. for years. I am trying to find that prayer which was a little different from what this states...It was great is the LORD and worthy of praise His greatness no one can fathom.

I am very grateful to Our Heavenly Father for the words that HE speaks to us in this passage. For many years I have struggled with many challenges in my life and many losses. This psalm is truly comforting, almost more than the medicine I take for certain conditions. The fact that God knows each of us and is acquainted with all of our ways is heartwarming because we all need to know that we are loved and that we are accepted. This is one of my favorite chapters in the Word of God.

the power of God does not dwell where there are divisions
