Commentary for Psalms 70

The speedy destruction of the wicked, and the preservation of the godly.

- This psalm is almost the same as the last five verses of #Ps 40|. While here we behold Jesus Christ set forth in poverty and distress, we also see him denouncing just and fearful punishment on his Jewish, heathen, and antichristian enemies; and pleading for the joy and happiness of his friends, to his Father's honour. Let us apply these things to our own troubled circumstances, and in a believing manner bring them, and the sinful causes thereof, to our remembrance. Urgent trials should always awake fervent prayers.

Commentary by Matthew Henry, 1710.

    I will be praying for you and the best advice I could offer is... remember it's lies of the Evil one who whispers, so whenever I am distressed, I read my King James Bible Just open it and I usually find Peace and Comfort in the page it opens to!!! May JESUS BLESS YOU ABUNDANTLY

    Proverbs 8

    32"Now then, my children, listen to me; blessed are those who keep my ways.

    33Listen to my instruction and be wise; do not disregard it.

    34Blessed are those who listen to me, watching daily at my doors, waiting at my doorway.

    35For those who find me find life and receive favor from the LORD.

    36But those who fail to find me harm themselves; all who hate me love death."

    So sorry for your loss. Prayers for strength and healing for you and your family. Please look for a support group for yourself and encourage your family to do the same. Opening up and dealing wirh the pain in a safe environment will help. Other sources of help are online support groups. Facebook has loss support groups. Also the United Way has resources for counseling where you can call on the phone, or see someone in person, if you would like. There is a really good book called "Good Grief" which may help. And another called "The Hurt & the Healer" and "It's OK that You're Not OK". This is just a start. Allow yourself space to grieve. You've suffered a great loss. It's OK to hurt. Allow yourself that space to hurt. Please lean on God. He cares for you. Prayers for healing and strength.

    I pray that you will have a deep and personal relationship with Jesus. He gave His life to give us eternal life. He suffered for our sins so that we are forgiven. He stands at the door and knocks, waiting patiently for us to let Him into our hearts. We simply need to accept Him and let him take the burden of our sins and know that He is our Lord and Saviour who will wash away our sins and help us to walk with Him every day.
