Discussion for Psalms 3

    This Psalms speaks to me, your own family will rise up against you in unrighteousness​, call on the Lord and he will deliver, we are not fighting against flesh and blood but against powers and principalities in high places. Let's call on our God and do his will in Jesus name. Amen
  • A disciple
    "Many there be which say of my soul, There is no help for him in God." What do the Righteous do to make the ungodly hate them? What did Abel do to Cain to make him get angry and kill him? Those who "will not have THIS MAN (Jesus) to rule over them;" who have no heart for knowing or doing the truth; think that their own life without God "proves" that there's no God, and their right to scorn faith.

    They may say there's no help for you. But if you got him you ain't got to worry about them. Even though they may tear you down he will pick you up. Just call on the Lord in heaven, because that's where help is , your hope is and your home is.

    The name of the LORD is a strong tower the righteous run in and they are safe he still remain the same he is worthy to be praise at all time

    Are not five sparrows sold for two farthings, and not one of them is forgotten before God? And they fell upon their faces, and said, O God, the God of the spirits of all flesh, shall one man sin, and wilt thou be wroth with all the congregation? O thou that hearest prayer, unto thee shall all flesh come. My mouth shall speak the praise of the LORD: and let all flesh bless his holy name for ever and ever. And I will remember my covenant, which is between me and you and every living creature of all flesh and the waters shall no more become a flood to destroy all flesh. Behold, I am the LORD, the God of all flesh: is there any thing too hard for me? Be silent, O all flesh, before the LORD: for he is raised up out of his holy habitation. These words spake Jesus, and lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them which thou hast given me for they are thine. While I was with them in the world, I kept them in thy name: those that thou gavest me I have kept, and none of them is lost, but the son of perdition that the scripture might be fulfilled. And all flesh shall see the salvation of God. And the glory of the LORD shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together: for the mouth of the LORD hath spoken it.
