Bible commentary

Discussion for Psalms 62

  • Richard C.
    The unsaved constantly rail against God and His son Jesus, even today. They can not discern the word of God or the fact that Jesus died for their sins because they can not discern the things of the spirit of God. David is telling the sinner (unbeliever) to give your life to the living God in Heaven unto Salvation. Mercy, power, and Glory belongs to the living God forever and ever, Amen.
  • Regina
    WE CAN NOT HIDE FROM GOD HE SEE EVERY WE DO WHETHER IT BE GOOD OR EVIL.
    WE CAN NOT GO OVER HIM, UNDER HIM, OR AROUND HIM, WE JUST NEED TO OBEY HIM.
    PRAY AND WAIT FOR THE ANSWER EVEN IF THE ANSWER DOESN'T COME WAIT AND ONLY DO WHAT HIS WORD SAY TO DO. GOD IS TRUE WHAT HE SAY HE WILL DO WE JUST NEED TO BE IN COMPLIANCE WITH HIS WORD. GOD IS MY HELP IN EVERYTHING I DO. HE IS MY ROCK AND MY STRENGTH.

    Waiting on GODS SALVATION is waiting on God to deliver you from the that which troubles your soul. GOD is our deliverer, healor, LORD, FATHER, SANCTIFICATION, RIGHTEOUSNESS, PROVIDER, MASTER, KING, AND through JESUSCHRIST GOD is our MESSIAH. When we pray to GOD and wait on GODS coming we WORSHIP GOD in SPIRIT and in TRUTH. GOD is our healor, and long waits to heal us, infact GOD loves those who loves him or JESUSCHRIST, GODS KING, LORD, MIGHTY GOD, and GODS DELIVERER.
