    I just felt a prompt to stand still at this Ps 25...to my amaze...I found...commentary...We value a promise by the character of him that makes it; we therefore depend upon God's promises. All the paths of the Lord, that is, all his promises and all his providences, are mercy and truth. In all God's dealings his people may see his mercy displayed, and his word fulfilled...and so it will appear...

    Redemption is of God alone.Those who trust in him,place their soul in his hands,because he has shown them mercy and revealed his covenant to them,by his grace.Affliction,pain and enemies in this world,distract us from what we know of our God,but he is faithful to remember us.A blessing/help to us is to never lose sight of Him.He said,"Come unto me",and we will look to him for help today,now.

    Psalms 50:14 Offer unto God thanksgiving and pay thy vows unto the most High: Psalms 100:4 Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name. 2 Maccabees 10:38 When this was done, they praised the Lord with psalms and thanksgiving, who had done so great things for Israel, and given them the victory.
