Discussion for Psalms 7

  • A disciple
    "The LORD shall judge the people: judge me, O LORD, according to my righteousness, and according to mine integrity that is in me." The aim of the commandments are Love out of a pure heart, faith without hypocrisy, and a good conscience toward God and men; and they that DO His commandments are the ones who love Him! The Blood of Jesus cleanses us from all sin that we may know Him and walk in truth.

    PSLAM 7:8 THE LORD SHALL JUDGE THE PEOPLE JUDGE ME O LORD ACCORDING TO MY RIGHTEOUSNESS AND ACCORDING TO MINE INTEGRITY THAT IS IN ME 1 SAMUEL 26:23 THE LORD RENDER TO EVERY MAN HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS AND HIS FAITHFULNESS FOR THE LORD DELIVERED THEE INTO MY HAND TODAY BUT I WOULD NOT STRETCH FORTH MINE HAND AGAINST THE LORDS ANOINTED
  • A disciple
    "God judges the righteous, and God is angry with the wicked every day. If he turn not, he will whet (sharpen, incite, encourage) his sword; he has bent his bow, and made it ready." While we expect men to do what's right, how much more should we count on God; (who sees all things in their innermost parts, and nothing is hidden from Him, and He cannot be deceived); to know how to finish all things?
  • A disciple
    "Oh let the wickedness of the wicked come to an end; but establish the just: for the righteous God trieth the hearts and reins." The inward impulses; the affections and passions; the whole moral constitution of man; the general emotional center; this is where we are proven to be of the truth, and how we walk with a perfect heart before God our Saviour. We learn from Jesus how to control thoughts.

    I am sitting in my sons living room in TX and reading in this chapter. It is such a blessing to know that God is in control. This week while shopping with our family one of the grand daughters came bouncing up to my wife and I. She was waving her arms and smiling and just having a great time. We both thought the same thing: she is care free and happy and unafraid the way we should be.
