Discussion for Psalms 34:5

  • Naomi - Ajayi for verse 5
    many are the afflictions of the righteous but its the Lord that delivers him out of all, safety is of the Lord, its only the Lord that can deliver, not any other person, not the psychic reader, not any other God but God Almighty the one that raised the dead in John11, the God that turned the dry bones in the valley of dried bones to become the armies of Israel. The God that the apron of his garment made the 18 years of issue of blood to cease, who among all these gods can do this, these are just few out of many of His acts. that was why Mariam and some women sang a song called "who is like unto you, oh God, who is like unto you, oh God, among the gods, who is like thee, glorious in holiness and fearful in praises " after He delivered them from 430 years of slavery and he made them to walk on dry ground by parting the red sea for them. the same God is who David and those with him flowed unto, looked unto and they were radiant, happy, full of joy, brightened up, sadness in the heart was removed, a sorrowful countenance changed, relief came unto them, their faces were brightened up etc. so looking unto him put an end to a life of shame. they were not ashamed any longer. they trusted in Him for solace, they know he can protect them from any form of evil.
  • Father, I thank you
