    PSALM chapter three for the third day of the first month of 2020, Guided by Holy Spirit on 11 day of 12 month 2019 to begin with PSALM chapter 11, I missed a few days but caught up now.

    Let's remember that while David did sin and was a man of war, he knew how to break his heart before God. God did serve His justice upon David by not allowing him the joy of building temple and he allowed David to suffer greatly due to choices. David was not perfect and made many mistakes yet God still chose him. Just as He does with us today, but remember to not misuse His grace toward us.

    Asking God to slap the faces of our enemies so hard as to break their teeth seems like a strange thing to ask Him to do. I cannot imagine Jesus doing that to someone.

    It was David's sin that caused such pain, he thought he could hide it, he knew in his heart he couldn't, he loved God with all his heart soul and might and nor can we. Deuteronomy 24:16 The fathers shall not be put to death for the children, neither shall the children be put to death for the fathers: every man shall be put to death for his own sin.
