Discussion for Psalms 23:3

  • Linda on Psalms 23:3
    Suicide is murder but,whether that individual is sent to hell or not is totally up to GOD.The Father is very intelligent and knows the heart of one who commits suicide, as he knows the hearts of all of us. GOD takes into account of everything that lead the individual to self murder. His thoughts and ways are nowhere near ours, therefore we can't know what will happen to anyone who takes their own life. Our Father is righteous and fair and takes everything into consideration and I believe will judge accordingly
  • Carol - in Reply on Psalms 23:3
    Considering the topic of suicide, I concur with Linda.

    We do not have all of the answers on this side of Heaven.

    Let us not judge each other. God alone is our judge:

    He knows far beyond what we could even imagine.
  • Stanjett on Psalms 23:3
    The Angel that wrestled with Jacob was an angel. Not Jesus. The statement itself tells you it was a angel. Not a man and not Jesus.
  • Stephen Botts - in Reply on Psalms 23:3
    In the Old Testament, when you see 'angel ( Angel) of the Lord', it is the preincarnate Christ, Jesus Himself. Unless otherwise named (as Gabriel in the book of Daniel).
  • DALE E STAHLBERG on Psalms 23:3
    In taking the bible trivia and only getting between 60% correct most of the time shows I lack in my understanding of the bible.

    I am a bit worried that I am not fully understanding of God will and following.

    Should I be?
  • Stanjett - in Reply on Psalms 23:3
    No. I learn something new every time I read the bible. Just keep reading again and again. Pray for understanding before you read and I think that will help.
  • Chris - in Reply on Psalms 23:3
    Dale, the Bible Trivia might be a fun thing to do & a test of your Bible knowledge, but please don't let it be a yardstick to determine your knowing God & His Will for your life. I think most of us would fail somewhere along the line as no one can be expected to know the content of all the Bible Books, chapters & verses. Some questions will be easy for you - others may find them difficult. I feel that it is a nice inclusion but rather, to drive us back into God's Word to learn more about Him, the world we live in & the needy people around us.

    Knowing God's Will is a vast subject that can't be dealt with here. There are books on this subject, the one by J.I. Packer has been popular & useful. However, the only real way is to spend quality time reading the Bible slowly & carefully, talking to God about what you read & what burdens your heart. It is the work of the Holy Spirit to both teach you & to apply the Truths to your heart & life. As well, from my own experience, patience is another key. We live in a world that "wants it & wants it now" - the Spirit's Word & Timing for us is not regulated by our moods & our time clock. To correctly wait for help & direction, we must spend time understanding God's already revealed Will for us in His Word & to "Keep in step with the Spirit": surprisingly, another of Packer's publications!
  • DALE E STAHLBERG - in Reply on Psalms 23:3
    Thanks Chris,

    Your answer was spot on.

    I can see you spend a lot of time reading and understanding what God's word is reviling to you.

    I often tell my friends: Its not remembering the chapter and verse but what the chapter and verse places in your heart/soul.

    Thanks again for your answer.

  • Deborah Fields - in Reply on Psalms 23:3
    No. the bible teach us not to forget symbol together in church which get us strength. A daily prays and reading the bible keep our mind stay on God. The church is the heart of man and that what take you to Heaven.

    "Jesus Lover of My Soul"

    Charles Wesley

    Jesus Lover of my soul, Let me to thy bosom fly,

    While the nearer waters roll, While the tempest still is high.

    Hide me, O my Savior hide, Till the storms of life is past;

    Safe into the haven guide, O receive my soul at last.

    Other refuge have I none, Hangs my helpless soul on Thee;

    Leave, oh, leave me not alone, Still support and comfort me.

    All my trust on Thee is stayed, All my help from Thee I bring;

    Cover my defenseless head With the shadow of thy wing.

    Thou, O Christ, art all I want; More than all in Thee I find;

    Raise the fallen, cheer the faint, Heal the sick, and lead the blind.

    Just and holy is Thy name, I am all unrighteousness;

    False and full of sin, I am, Thou art full of truth and grace.

    Plenteous grace with Thee is found, Grace to pardon all my sin;

    Let the healing streams abound; Make and keep me pure within.

    Thou of life the fountain art, Freely let me take of Thee;

    Spring Thou up within my heart, Rise to all eternity.
