Discussion for Psalms 26

  • Dereck
    David is taking advantage that he meet with God now and the same God will pronounce judgment on the final day. He want to have feedback right now before the time so that he can rectify his life before the final day. Since he is the one calling for this judgment, it is true that he is ready to change after being shown his failures.
  • IRENE123
    v. 12 - :.....In the CONGREGATIONS will I bless the Lord." Heb. 10:25 - ".....not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is." A Christian walk with God/Jesus is not a solitary - as many 'pretend' to believe. You cannot sit on a mountain top and 'meditate' on God DURING Sunday services. God sees such and He deals with them, but some won't 'listen'.

    In verse 1 and 2, David asked God to examine him. This shows that he had confidence. He wanted to identify and work on any defect that was found in him.
  • SEH
    As I read this passage, I thought how we like David need to ask God to examine us. Are you on the right path, are we choosing our associates wisely. Lord keep my feet on the straight path , that leads to eternal life with You, guide my mind and my heart always. Is my prayer in Jesus Name Amen
  • Irene123
    To Lu2677 - yes, David was 'requesting', not demanding. David was a man after God's own heart; he knew where his place was.
  • BSP
    Verse 5 shows that David knew that his associations mattered to God. God wants us to be selective about the friends we choose. Choosing the wrong associates could cause David to lose out on God's favor.
