Discussion for Psalms 63

  • Gail Morris
    It came as a reminder that I need to be in His Word when I awake in the morning...I am newly retired, and never have been a morning person, so morning times with God were not likely, being unable to focus early in the morning. Thank you for this reminder, that I need to spend time in the morning once I am up...God IS our sanctuary! Amen...
  • Betty Hillsman
    Great encouragement and challenge! Bless God!!
  • I love this psalm as well so comforting, and Joan if you open your Bible you will see it is a book of psalms and even in my early 1900 Bible it is the same and every psalm is a chapter, they are separated one from the other, hope this helps you to understand, they were to be considered a cluster of 5 books God Bless

    Life without the loyal love of Jehovah God would be nothing so we want to express our gratitude for the love that Jehovah God has shown toward us.
  • Stephen B
    Bill, you are right on. The wicked are are in full force and aiming God's people and those He has raised up. But He is still in charge, Amen!!
  • Bill
    but the mouth of them that speak lies shall be stopped

    In this time/age I take comfort in this part of the scripture. God is in control
