Discussion for Psalms 51

  • A disciple
    (5-6) Two verses that stand out to me with respect to some recent posts/conversations. This Psalm has been very precious to me for so long, for very painful reasons. I can imagine how terrible David felt, though my sins weren't exactly like his: one wishes they could just make the past to have never happened; but it did! And still, the LORD is willing to forgive and cleanse and make new again!!!!!

    Psalm 51:17- This verse is the answer to being born again. Without this condition it can not happen. "If you are not like this little child, you will by no means enter The Kingdom of Heaven". Consider the child, completely innocent. So are you, now, with a broken heart. Open to The Living God. Who has created all things. Even the pain.

    David seem willing to be uncovered and cleaned with all .so all the hidden dark spirits that s bidding in side his heart and mind he s ready to throw up and spit them out using words and talk about them .so light can come inside and bring God ways and understand and see the ways of God. in his true inlightment. So like a detox everything that s bad in side us has to and demons dont like light.fle
