Discussion for Psalms 3

    The book of Psalm 3 was ministered at service and soon as I arrive home I began to study it over again. I realize God will give you great peace in the battle set before us.

    BSP; Amen! It is interesting the way God had David put the most dreadful time of his life at the beginning of the Psalms. The matter around Absalom was not confined to his house alone; but was used by God to make manifest what was in the hearts of every man. The strong delusion and conspiracy grew as it did because so many who had known the blessing of God's Anointed turned instead to rebellion.
  • BSP
    Verse 5: Even though David was dealing with some very distressing circumstances, in verse 5 he went to sleep and left matter in God's hands. We must trust in God and take things one day at a time.
  • Nola Brown
    Psalm 3 show me that David was a real person with real enemy, problem, and fears. Nevertheless through years of experiences with God's unwavering love, protection, and faithfulness David's resolve remained steadfast in-spite of his initial responses. This is also letting us know that like David, we all will experience struggles of every kind in our life time, but God is faithful and never change.
