Discussion for Psalms 17:14

  • Pamela Carter for verse 14
    I have read that Psalm so very many times and I dont remember seeing that particular verse the way I saw it this morning. Yes, it is true. My, my, my so many circumstances against me, obstacles, it was, is His hand. He has been calling me to come closer to Him. I have disobeyed, to put it simply. I love HIM so much, HE is magnificent, all powerful, all loving and all Holy and True. HE is Loving Just and True. He only ever calls us closer to Him. Not to punish but to give us opportunities to get to Know Him more and more and more. John 17:3 this is life eternal, to know God and His Son whom He sent" To know Him is to love Him. I confess undisplined flesh, I plead the Blood of the Lamb. Please continue to draw me Yahweh and we will run after you. After you have corrected me use me to draw multitudes to You. Oh Holy and most Perfect One. My dearest papa, my only treasure. Please forgive me and help me. I love you.
