Psalm 17:13-15 Focus Points

 

Rise up, LORD, confront them, bring them down; with your sword rescue me from the wicked.   By your hand save me from such people, LORD, from those of this world whose reward is in this life. May what you have stored up for the wicked fill their bellies; may their children gorge themselves on it, and may there be leftovers for their little ones.   As for me, I will be vindicated and will see your face; when I awake, I will be satisfied with seeing your likeness.   

Ref: 1John 3:2>   Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.    

Focus Points: We deceive ourselves when we measure our happiness or contentment in life by the amount of wealth we possess. When we put riches at the top of our value system, we let power, pleasure and financial security overshadow the eternal value of our relationship with God. We think we will be happy or content when we get riches, only to discover that they don’t  really satisfy, and the pleasures fade away. The true measurement of happiness or contentment is found in God’s love and in doing his will. You will find true happiness if you put your relationship with God above earthly riches.  verse 15 also focus on the word awake shows that David believed in resurrection was not widespread in Old Testament times. several verses show that it was partially understood. some of these are Job 19:25-27; Psalms 16:10; 49:15; 139:17,18; Isaiah 26:19 and Daniel 12:2,13.

 Daily Promises (September 14th)

(Philippians 4:19)

But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.

Reflection
God is all-powerful. He is able to provide for every need that meets a believer in his walk with Christ. As humans we often think of “needs” in the light of food, shelter, and physical amenities. However, our “real” needs are spiritual, for our spirit is eternal. Jesus has provided for all of our spiritual needs. As the Apostle Peter says in his second letter:
According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that [pertain] unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue: Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.

(2 Peter 1:3-4) 

According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue: Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.


The Philippians trusted in God’s promises, and they gave to the Lord’s work out of what little they possessed. Praise God that we can trust in Him for our daily provision of all our needs!

Focus points:  

We can trust that God will always meet our needs. Whatever we need on earth he will always supply, even if it is the courage to face death as Paul did. Whatever we need in heaven he will supply. We must remember, however, the difference between our wants and our needs. Most people want to feel good and avoid discomfort or pain. we may not get all that we want. By trusting in Christ, our attitudes and appetites can change from wanting everything to accepting his provision and power to live for him.

And ye shall seek me, and find [me], when ye shall search for me with all your heart.

Reading of Psalms 3-33-63-93-123.     Proverbs 3:1-7,35.

“As newborn babes desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby.”  1Peter 2:2

    Become a person after God’s own heart by translating your joys and sorrows through the Psalms. By reading five (5) Psalms a day, you will not only complete the book of Psalms each month, but you will also be encouraged by precise these Psalms are to your experience.   Learn the wisdom of God by reading each day, the chapter of Proverbs which corresponds to the day of the month. Relate the Proverbs to the decisions and situations you face, this and everyday..

Psalm 3:1-7,35.

A Psalm of David, when he fled from Absalom his son.

LORD, how are they increased that trouble me! many are they that rise up against me.    

Many there be which say of my soul, There is no help for him in God. Selah.     

But thou, O LORD, art a shield for me; my glory, and the lifter up of mine head.  

 I cried unto the LORD with my voice, and he heard me out of his holy hill. Selah.  

 I laid me down and slept; I awaked; for the LORD sustained me.    


I will not be afraid of ten thousands of people, that have set themselves against me round about.

Arise, O LORD; save me, O my God: for thou hast smitten all mine enemies upon the cheek bone; thou hast broken the teeth of the ungodly.


Salvation belongeth unto the LORD: thy blessing is upon thy people. Selah.  

Focus points:

… David felt like he was in the minority. There may have been as many as 10,000 soldiers surrounding him at this time. Not only did David’s enemies view life differently, they actively sought to harm him. David could have trusted his army to defeat his son Absalom. Instead, he depended upon God’s mercy. (3:4) therefore he was at peace with whatever outcome occurred, knowing that God’s great purpose would prevail.

… David was not sitting on his throne in a place of power, but he was running for his life from his rebellious son Absalom and a host of traitors.  When circumstances go against us it is tempting to think that God also is against us. But David reminds us, God is still for us If circumstance has turn against you  don’t blame God…seek Him! 

Proverbs 3:3,-7 and 35.  

1:My son, forget not my law; but let thine heart keep my commandments:

(1a) Deut.30:16>

2: For length of days, and long life, and peace, shall they add to thee.

3:  Let not mercy and truth forsake thee: bind them about thy neck; write them upon the table of thine heart:

2Cor.3:37>Are we beginning to commend ourselves again? Or do we need, like some people, letters of recommendation to you or from you?

4: So shalt thou find favour and good understanding in the sight of God and man.

5:  Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.

6:  In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths. 

(e) Jer. 9:23>
This is what the LORD says: “Let not the wise boast of their wisdom or the strong boast of their strength or the rich boast of their riches,

(f) 1Chr.28:9>
“And you, my son Solomon, acknowledge the God of your father, and serve him with wholehearted devotion and with a willing mind, for the LORD searches every heart and understands every desire and every thought. If you seek him, he will be found by you; but if you forsake him, he will reject you forever.

Phil.4:6>  Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.

(g) Jer. 10:23> LORD, I know that people’s lives are not their own; it is not for them to direct their steps.

7: Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the LORD, and depart from evil. :

(h) Rom.12:16>Live in harmony with one another. Do not be proud, but be willing to associate with people of low position Do not be conceited.

35: The wise shall inherit glory: but shame shall be the promotion of fools.

(aa) Dan.12:27> “At that time Michael, the great prince who protects your people, will arise. There will be a time of distress such as has not happened from the beginning of nations until then. But at that time your people—everyone whose name is found written in the book—will be delivered.
