Discussion for Psalms 44

  • Deborah
    The psalms are beautiful and very deep at times
  • A disciple
    "Thou hast given us like sheep appointed for meat; and hast scattered us among the heathen." We have all read the part when the Lord was arrested in the garden, and confirmed the necessity of the Scriptures being fulfilled; saying, "All ye shall be offended because of me this night: for it is written, I will smite the shepherd, and the sheep shall be scattered." This Word is still in action today.
  • A disciple
    "Thou makest us a reproach to our neighbours, a scorn and a derision to them that are round about us. Thou makest us a byword among the heathen, a shaking of the head among the people." Until we become really of the same mind as Jesus, the adversity and tribulations of life will continue to be a stumbling-block. We have to understand that NOW is not yet our time, and this world NOT our long home.
  • A disciple
    Dear Robert, Leslie, Carol, Andrew, Lisa, Anita, Alex, Annie, Steve, Bruce, Jeff, Daniel, and ALL WHO LOVE OUR LORD JESUS; I am very blessed by reading what you wrote. I hope this most dreadful and troubled time we are in just now passes quickly; for I am so looking forward to me and my wife meeting and knowing you all! The Lord bless you all and keep you healthy and strong and safe till He comes.
  • Robert J. DeHaan
    This beautiful and profound Psalm, as is all of God's Word spoke to my spirit in a mighty way. It caused me to meditate on what the importance of those faithful, that have walked with God who have gone before us. It is good to be reminded that God knows the secrets of our hearts, that nothing is hidden from our Heavenly Father. Let us boast in the Cross of Christ each day of our lives. Praise God!
  • Leslie Brown
    We must make sure we are having a relationship with God. Seeking Him each day of our lives. He is the only one that can protect us through the Holy Spirit in Jesus Mighty Name Amen
