Discussion for Psalms 71

  • A disciple
    "I am as a wonder unto many; but thou art my strong refuge." One of my biggest griefs and questions for many years has been, Why do Churches NOT seem to know, and many even fight against the true Word of God and the Glad Tidings of Christ; turning it into a social club for mending relationships and being successful in life? I'm seeing more and more that its because they are afraid of the cross.

    I put my trust in God.
  • A disciple
    "In thee, O LORD, do I put my trust: let me never be put to confusion." Psalms 71:1 What ever entered into men's hearts, and after what were they led, that confusion should then be sent by God for judgment and punishment, restraining them from what they imagined to do? And how so would it be God's conclusion and righteous remedy to let one be put to confusion? The degree of embarrassment should be fitting to the measure of our pride in the trespass, and of the inordinate thoughts and behavior we followed against better judgment and obedience. The error of the ungodly is made manifest by the confusion and darkness that they are held under and it shouldn't be any less for one professing knowledge of the truth in Christ. All the more we ought to be careful to attend to love, and a good conscience, and faith without hypocrisy, if we like not to be ashamed before men or worse, at the presence of the Lord when He comes.

  • Irene
    To me I hear that I put all my trust in God and asking not to be confused with what I think. That I trust in Him.

    God is our beginning and our end. The Great I Am. Although sometimes our flesh anticipates God to fix our problems and protect us when we ask it's not always his time to do so but he will do so at his right time. Keep your faith and be patient. Our Lord and Savior will not forget because his love is UNCONDITIONAL.
