Discussion for Psalms 18:3

  • MockingBird for verse 3
    Frank on 2013, 8 30 You said it exactly right . I agree with you wholeheartedly. When I am in right standing with my Lord I can call upon Him and Praise Him for His great deliverance and I shall be saved from my enemies. The last enemy of mine will be death and then death hath no more dominion over me . Praise God forever more !!!!
  • its a psalm of assurance and trust in the potency of our Lord and God. its a good depiction that God gives the ultimate protection from those who oppose our course. the selective terminology builds in me a sentiment and sobriety that when i choose to surrender to the Most High and depend upon His power, i am placed in that position that He moves in to defend my course and life so that them who oppose my advancement are quitened. its a build up for peace for then He secures my borders.
