    David in this chapter makes me understand that without the Lord,I am nothing.Because 100 year years before the Lord is not not even a day. Lord Jesus help me to know my days on earth.

    God chastise,s. His people to keep us humble.and so that we can share in his holiness.it may seem hard but he chastens every son he recieves
  • The Lord is our hope psalms39:7 So we are waiting for that hope as per the scripture Phil 3:20.
  • Andrew
    Verse 4 5 one of my favourite verses I memorized. Always remind ourselves that we are as grass, and the best of us are as flowers. The grass withers away, and the flowers faded away. Anything that is looked at in the context of eternity is vanity.
  • It fits my mood today. For today I know that a dear sister is actually dying of the cancer that torments her in pain and agony. I cannot pray for her healing because I know that is only my selfishness I want my big sister around forever, and when she dies, I am the last of four siblings who all died young who remains alive. No, I must pray that God shows mercy through Christ Jesus that her passing may be painless and easy for her. That on passing she first sees our Grandma who cared for us as children and died way too young age 73 who will hold her to herself and let her know that, In Christ, all things are well. I pray that Eternity treats her better than this life did. In Jesus ' name I pray this. If you are reading this, I hope your prayers will join mine for my dearest sister Michelle. God grant her peace. Let my prayer come to your ears, O Lord, and give attention to my cry, make an answer to my weeping for my time here is short before you, and in a little time I will be gone, like all my fathers.
  • Ms. Darkimbong khaling for verse 11
    God is holy and He chastises us by secretly and insensibly consuming our desirable state to sensitize us to repent.
