Discussion for Psalms 77

  • BSP
    In verse 12 the psalmist mentioned meditating on all of Jehovah God's works or doing. If we do the same this can fill us with awe and give us strength.
  • Michael C.
    Dear Brother, I was not being a hypocrite or proud; you said that you let doubt into your life, and worried that you weren't even saved.Who was behind that wicked thought? Not a brother in the Lord, who is telling you in the love of the Spirit, to wise up and play the man; for your people, and for your God! Believe God,and give no place to the devil for anything, ESPECIALLY YOUR BLOOD BOUGHT SOUL!
  • Michael C.
    Dear Michael, Please don't be offended; its not pride; but great experience of Jesus' mercy and forgiveness, and power to save to the uttermost! If I came over too rough, forgive me; I too am still in the world, and must yet reach the goal I'm set out for, like you. There are so many portions of scripture, that if we give ourselves wholly to learn; hold for us all the power and wisdom to overcome.
  • Michael C.
    Hi Michael, No, I don't have a spirit of pride; but I do have a lot of experience of the Lord's mercy toward me. If we toy with temptation, and afterward have to repent; we must expect the Lord's chastisement as part of the healing; because you must know He hates sin; and He does not wink at it in Christians. The "judge not" from Mt 7:1, does not bar one brother from rebuking another if needed.
  • Michael Cannady
    This is directed to Michael C. (the one with the period after his "c")...

    First off, I ask you to read Matthew 7:3-5..

    I will be praying for what I see as a Spirit of pride that is seeming to make you feel that YOU are a better Christian that anyone else.. Some are strong in Faith, others need to ask for forgiveness for their weakness (meaning me..) I feel you are judging me. (The Lord's job?)
  • Michael C.
    Do you allow two of the same name to comment? I have no doubts or fears about being saved! Walk in the Spirit, and make no room for the devil or his filthy allurements! I have repented of my sins, and am truly converted; and I stay converted! Jesus the Son of God came in the flesh to lay down His life to save me from my sins. Too many give in to the flesh, and destroy many others with themselves.
