Psalms Chapter 17 Discussion



 
  • Jack Gutknecht on Psalms 17
    1 Lord, hear the right, regard my cry,

    My prayer from lips sincere;

    Send Thy approval from on high,

    My righteousness make clear.

    Thou in the night my heart hast tried,

    Nor found it turned from Thee aside.

    2 With steadfast courage I design

    No wrong to speak or do;

    Thy path of life I choose for mine

    And walk with purpose true.

    For help, O God, I cry to Thee,

    Assured that Thou wilt answer me.

    3 O Thou that ever savest those

    Whose trust on Thee is stayed,

    Preserving them from all their foes

    By Thy almighty aid,

    Let me Thy loving-kindness see,

    Thy wondrous mercy, full and free.

    4 O guard me well as one doth guard

    The apple of the eye;

    While deadly foes are pressing hard,

    To Thee, to Thee I cry.

    Do Thou my rest and refuge be,

    O let Thy wings o'er shadow me.

    5 My enemy, grown strong in pride,

    Would take my life away,

    A lion lurking by my side,

    Most greedy for his prey.

    Confront and cast him down, O Lord,

    From evil save me by Thy sword.

    6 Defend me from the men of pride,

    Whose portion is below,

    Who, with life's treasures satisfied,

    No better portion know;

    They, with earth's joys and wealth content,

    Must leave them all when life is spent.

    7 When I in righteousness at last

    Thy glorious face shall see,

    When all the weary night is past,

    And I awake with Thee

    To view the glories that abide,

    Then, then I shall be satisfied.

    I agree with you for God to heal your thyroid problems. It's important to get a MRI of them every year to compare with the last one you had.

    Fear not. Give thanks to the Lord for He cares for you.
  • Vanessa on Psalms 17
    There is times we feel so alone but we are never alone, God is always with us, sometimes we are in the desert, search our hearts and draw nearer to him, pray and glorify him always, he will never forsake you. He is a good God, a loving Father filled with mercy and grace we cant even imagine. Let us seek being the apple of his eye, not to the world. God Bless

  • Mild Bill on Psalms 17
    The Psalmist is saying a prayer in which he seems alone, and he is, until v.11. God stands with him as the remedy to his woes before a common enemy.The sword and hand of the Lord are under the control of God, but they have no hope of eternal life, as believers do.God's covenant with us is stronger than the powers of the lost of this world. Awakening with God is greater than all the things we face.

  • MockingBird on Psalms 17
    I want to be kept by the power of God and to be the apple of His eye. I also want to be hid under the shadow of His wing. My life is hid with Christ in God .

    It's amazing how God speaks to us through His holy word. I am going through something right now that I didn't forsee happening, but this Psalm assures me that God already knows about it and He will deliver me from them that rise up against me. Praise His holy name.

  • Pamela Carter on Psalms 17:14
    I have read that Psalm so very many times and I dont remember seeing that particular verse the way I saw it this morning. Yes, it is true. My, my, my so many circumstances against me, obstacles, it was, is His hand. He has been calling me to come closer to Him. I have disobeyed, to put it simply. I love HIM so much, HE is magnificent, all powerful, all loving and all Holy and True. HE is Loving Just and True. He only ever calls us closer to Him. Not to punish but to give us opportunities to get to Know Him more and more and more. John 17:3 this is life eternal, to know God and His Son whom He sent" To know Him is to love Him. I confess undisplined flesh, I plead the Blood of the Lamb. Please continue to draw me Yahweh and we will run after you. After you have corrected me use me to draw multitudes to You. Oh Holy and most Perfect One. My dearest papa, my only treasure. Please forgive me and help me. I love you.
  • Norm on Psalms 17
    Wow, time is catching up to the Living Word of the Living God. Verse 11 highlights this in a huge way! They are certainly using GPS cell phones license plate scanners computers to track us in our steps by use of satellites and cameras bowing down to the earth. Only a liar could deny that! Praise the LORD Jesus Christ for opening our eyes as we finish out the last days. Blessings to all who yearn for the knowledge of the truth! Amen

  • Davie on Psalms 17:4
    lost man does not recognise his works are "anti-christ", hence the world today naked,blind and unsealed,through the influence of "the prince of the power of the air" are setting the stage for "Appolyon" the destroyer, Only the incorruptable seed of the pure word of God, can keep us from being blinded,taken and snared by the paths of the destroyer manifested in the works of men,
  • Anugwa Nathan on Psalms 17
    THE SHADOW OF THE LORD REPRESENTING HIS GLORY IS ALL WE NEED AT ALL TIMES
  • Sheree on Psalms 17
    As we mature through the sanctification process of being led by the Holy Spirit through obedience, He transform our character to the likeness of Christ. You should be able to see a life style change in your life that glorify Him more and more each day!!!
