Once again, we launch into The word. It truly is my strength and shield. No truer Words have been spoken.
I love the LORD, because he hath heard my voice and my supplications. Because he hath inclined his ear unto me, therefore will I call upon him as long as I live. While there is still life in this flesh have I learned to call upon Him. For He alone hears and answers prayers. Yes, I may put in my best efforts, but increase comes from The Lord.
The sorrows of death compassed me, and the pains of hell gat hold upon me: I found trouble and sorrow. Then called I upon the name of the LORD; O LORD, I beseech thee, deliver my soul. Amazing how even then someone knew what a lack of Glory implied.
Gracious is the LORD, and righteous; yea, our God is merciful. Even as we do what we shouldn’t He remains right there. He defines Love. He is Love.
The LORD preserveth the simple: I was brought low, and he helped me. We read this and understand that at all times He is there. He does not sleep or slumber. I know this, for when I was there. I never felt the need to sleep. Again, it felt like minutes, but it was months.
We again live in actuality, and can say: Return unto thy rest, O my soul; for the LORD hath dealt bountifully with thee. And we can readily say: For thou hast delivered my soul from death, mine eyes from tears, and my feet from falling.
So, what is our duty and need? I will walk before the LORD in the land of the living.
How and why? I believed, therefore have I spoken: I was greatly afflicted:
What do we do? I said in my haste, All men are liars.
What shall I render unto the LORD for all his benefits toward me? Evenbbefore the ccoming of The Lord King David said this: I will take the cup of salvation, and call upon the name of the LORD. I will pay my vows unto the LORD now in the presence of all his people. What vows are these? Homework time. Think long and hard.
If and when we do… Precious in the sight of the LORD is the death of his saints. Amen. Meaning that when it comes to that hour, it is a time for celebtation. Yes, it is sad that someone we love is dying in the flesh, but as long as they have kept it right with Him. We have a chance to be in a place where time has no meaning. And we realize: O LORD, truly I am thy servant; I am thy servant, and the son of thine. Again, why were we made, by Who? Yes we may be so much/all that here. But there??? Amazing yet is the Billionairs of our day. Do they leave with their money? Evenbif it keeps them alive indefinitely. How many thouand year old billionars are there. Yes, people in the start of time lived awfully long. Methuselah was 969 years old! Again, we realize how long God – The creator has been around. He had always. But even if we think about it. Time only affects us. The same Lucifer that had people crucify The Lord, is the same one out there today. No older!
What has The Lord done? Thou hast loosed my bonds.
And because of all this, what should we do? I will offer to thee the sacrifice of thanksgiving, and will call upon the name of the LORD. I will pay my vows unto the LORD now in the presence of all his people. In the courts of the LORD’s house, in the midst of thee, O Jerusalem. Praise ye the LORD. Psalm 116:1-19
Lord, King of all. I come before You at this time and realize even more What and Who You are. Words cannot express the depth of my gratitude, the extent of my commitment. Be Thou glorified in my life in Jesus name, Amen
