Welcome my Friends to 'Sanctuary'. A 'room' where we are able to pull aside, away from all the 'cares of the world', for the purpose of 'focusing' on God the Father, through Jesus Christ, God the Son, as we are enabled by God the Holy Spirit. Welcome.
On this our final post, let us review and check ourselves to be sure we have 'repented', we continue to 'repent', of sins creeping into our lives, [through thoughts, leading to words and actions], from our old nature [the old man.]
[Study Romans Chapters 7-8, for deeper understanding of this 'conflict'. audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html].
Today, Wednesday, December 5, 2018, let us finish what we began on Sunday/Wednesday since November 11, 14; 18, 21, 25, 28, and December 2, 2018, our study of the meaning in - The Penitential Psalms
A psalm of David. [Comments from Matthew Henry Concise Commentary Online.]
This is one of the psalms which show us why, 'David was a man after God's own heart'. [1 Samuel 13:14]
This Psalm 143, as those before, is a prayer of David, and full of complaints of the great distress and danger he was in, probably when Saul persecuted him. [See 1 Samuel.] He did not only pray in that affliction, but he prayed very much and very often, not the same over again, but new thoughts.
In this psalm, I. He complains of his troubles, through the oppression of his enemies (verse 3) and the weakness of his spirit under it, which was ready to sink notwithstanding the likely course he took to support himself (verses 4, 5). [Can we relate?] audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html
II. He prays, and prays earnestly (verse 6), 1. That God would hear him (verses 1-7). 2. That he would not deal with him according to his sins (verse 2). 3. That he would not hide his face from him (verse 7), but manifest his favour to him (verse 8). 4. That he would guide and direct him in the way of his duty (verses 8, 10) and quicken him in it (verse 11). 5. That he would deliver him out of his troubles (verses 9, 11). 6. That he would in due time reckon with his persecutors (verse 12).
We may, and frankly should, more easily accommodate this psalm to ourselves, in the singing of it, because most of the petitions in it are for spiritual blessings (which we all need at all times), mercy and grace.
I pray you are appreciating the beauty of studying all of God's Word, including the Old Testament. Ah-h-h, the blessings in doing so! Amen. Amen.
In closing my Friends, and in conclusion, you cannot study the Psalms without experiencing every emotion of the heart of a human being under all types of circumstances, praising and praying to the Lord. It is a 'habit' I strongly encourage everyone to adopt for true 'mental health'.
Take everything to the Lord in Praise and 'heart-felt' prayer, just like David did, through the Psalms. Be Blessed by doing so, in the Most Precious Name - Jesus the Christ, Our Lord and Savior; Our God. Amen. Amen.
