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>
For I command you today to love the LORD your God, to walk in obedience to him, and to keep his commands, decrees and laws; then you will live and increase, and the LORD your God will bless you in the land you are entering to possess.

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:

(b) Jer.17:1> “Judah’s sin is engraved with an iron tool, inscribed with a flint point, on the tablets of their hearts and on the horns of their altars.

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.

Psalm 28:3-5.

D not drag me away with the wicked with those who do evil, who speak cordially with their neighbors but harbor malice in their hearts. Repay them for their deeds. and for their evil work; repay them for what their hands have done and bring back upon them what they deserve. Since they show no regard for the works of the LORD .and what his hands have done. he will tear them down and never build them up again.

Focus points:

it’s easy to pretend friendship. Wicked people often put on a show of kindness or friendsh

in order to gain their own ends. David in his royal position, may have met many who pretended friendship only to meet their own goals. David knew that God would punish them eventually.

But he prayed that their punishment would come swiftly . True believers should be straightforward and sincere in all their relationships.

Psalms 9:10,19-20 – And (c) they that know thy name will put their trust in thee: for thou, LORD, hast not forsaken them that seek thee. Arise, O LORD; let not man prevail: let the heathen be judged in thy sight. Put them in fear, O LORD: that the nations may know themselves to be but men. Selah.   

ref: Ps.91:14> “Because he loves me,” says the LORD, “I will rescue him; I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name.

John 17:3> Now this is eternal life: that they know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent.

2Cor.4:3> And even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing.

2Tim.1:12> That is why I am suffering as I am. Yet this is no cause for shame, because I know whom I have believed, and am convinced that he is able to guard what I have entrusted to him until that day.

1John 2:3,4> We know that we have come to know him if we keep his commands. Whoever says, “I know him,” but does not do what he commands is a liar, and the truth is not in that person.

Psalms 39:1

 I said, I will (a) take heed to my ways, that I sin not with my tongue: I will keep my mouth with a bridle, 

(b) while the wicked is before me.     

(a) 1Kings 2:4> and that the LORD may keep his promise to me: ‘If your descendants watch how they live, and if they walk faithfully before me with all their heart and soul, you will never fail to have a successor on the throne of Israel.’ 

Focus point: David resolved to keep his tongue from sin; that is, he decided not to complain to other people about God’s treatment of him. He took his complaints directly to God. we all have complaints about our jobs, money, or situations, but complaining to others may make them think that God cannot take care of us. It may also look as if we blame God for our troubles, instead, like David, we should take our complaints directly to God.

 

Prov.4:26,27> Give careful thought to the paths for your feet and be steadfast in all your ways. Do not turn to the right or the left; keep your foot from evil.

Focus Points:  Our heart … our feelings of love and desire … dictates to a great extent how we live because we always find time to do what we enjoy. Solomon tells us to guard  our heart above all else, making sure  we concentrate on those desires that will keep us on the right path. Make sure your affections push you in the right direction. Put boundaries on your desires; don’t go after everything you see. Look straight ahead, keep your eyes on your goal, and don’t get sidetracked on detours that lead to sin.

Heb.2:1>   

(b) Col.4:5>

Proverbs 9:4-6

(c)Whoso is simple, let him turn in hither: as for him that wanteth understanding, she saith to him, (d)Come, eat of my bread, and drink of the wine which I have mingled.Forsake the foolish, and live; and go in the way of understanding. 

(c) Prov.6:32> But a man who commits adultery has no sense; whoever does so destroys himself.

Matt.11:25> At that time Jesus said, “I praise you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because you have hidden these things from the wise and learned, and revealed them to little children.

(d) Song 5:1> He: I have come into my garden, my sister, my bride; I have gathered my myrrh with my spice. I have eaten my honeycomb and my honey; I have drunk my wine and my milk. Friends: Eat, friends, and drink; drink your fill of love.

Isa.55:1> “Come, all you who are thirsty, come to the waters; and you who have no money, come, buy and eat! Come, buy wine and milk without money and without cost.

Matt.26:26-28> While they were eating, Jesus took bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it and gave it to his disciples, saying, “Take and eat; this is my body.” Then he took a cup, and when he had given thanks, he gave it to them, saying, “Drink from it, all of you. This is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins.

Focus Points:     

Each name we use for this sacrament brings out a different dimension to it. It is the LORD’S Supper because it commemorates the Passover meal Jesus ate with his disciples, it is the Eucharist (thanksgiving) because in it we thank God for Christ’s work for us. it is Communion because through it we commune with God and with other believers. As we eat the bread and drink the wine, we should be quietly reflective as we recall Jesus’ death and his promise to come again, grateful for God’s wonderful gift to us. and joyful as we meet with Christ and the body of Believers.

 

 

Daily Bible Study, Daily Readings, Psalms and Proverbs

Daily Bible Study July 26,2018

Reading of  Psalms 26,56,86,116, 146.

Proverbs 26

Insights of Romans 6:23 > For (1) the wages of sin is death; but (2)the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord

ref: (1) Gen.2:17> but you must not eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, for when you eat from it you will certainly die.”

Rom.5:12> Therefore, just as sin entered the world through one man, and death through sin, and in this way death came to all people, because all sinned—

Jas. 1:5> If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you.

Rev.21:8> But the cowardly, the unbelieving, the vile, the murderers, the sexually immoral, those who practice magic arts, the idolaters and all liars—they will be consigned to the fiery lake of burning sulfur. This is the second death.”

        (2) John 3:14> Just as Moses lifted up the snake in the wilderness, so the Son of Man must be lifted up,[

Rom.2:7> To those who by persistence in doing good seek glory, honor and immortality, he will give eternal life.   

Focus point:   Eternal life is a free gift from God. If it is  a gift, then it is not something we earn, nor something that must be paid back. Consider the foolishness of someone who receives a gift out of love and then offer to pay for it. A gift cannot be purchased by the recipient. A more appropriate response to a love one who offers a gift is graceful acceptance with gratitude. Our salvation is a gift of God, not something of our own doing ( Eph.2:8-9). He saved us because of his mercy, not because of any righteous things that we have done (Titus 3:5). How much more we should accept with thanksgiving the gift that God has freely given us.

Daily Readings, Spiritual Understandings

Psalms 29:

Honor the LORD, you heavenly beings;
honor the LORD for his glory and strength.

(a)1 Chr.16:28-29> O nations of the world, recognize the LORD,
recognize that the LORD is glorious and strong. Give to the LORD the glory he deserves!
Bring your offering and come into his presence.
Worship the LORD in all his holy splendor.

Honor the LORD for the glory of his name.
Worship the LORD in the splendor of his holiness.

The voice of the LORD echoes above the sea.
The God of glory thunders.
The LORD thunders over the mighty sea.

The voice of the LORD is powerful;
the voice of the LORD is majestic.

The voice of the LORD splits the mighty cedars;
the LORD shatters the cedars of Lebanon.

He makes Lebanon’s mountains skip like a calf;
he makes Mount Hermon leap like a young wild ox.

(b)Psa.114:4>The mountains skipped like rams,
the hills like lambs!

The voice of the LORD strikes
with bolts of lightning.

The voice of the LORD makes the barren wilderness quake;
the LORD shakes the wilderness of Kadesh.

(d)Num.13:26> to Moses, Aaron, and the whole community of Israel at Kadesh in the wilderness of Paran. They reported to the whole community what they had seen and showed them the fruit they had taken from the land.

The voice of the LORD twists mighty oaks
and strips the forests bare.
In his Temple everyone shouts, “Glory!”

The LORD rules over the floodwaters.
The LORD reigns as king forever.

(e) Psa.93:4>But mightier than the violent raging of the seas,
mightier than the breakers on the shore—
the LORD above is mightier than these!

The LORD gives his people strength.
The LORD blesses them with peace.

(f) Isa.40:29>He gives power to the weak
and strength to the powerless.

Focus points : verses 29:10,11 – throughout history, God has revealed his power through mighty miracles over nature, such as the great flood (Genesis 6-9). He promises to continue to reveal his power. Paul urged us to understand how great God’s power is (Ephesians 1:18-23>I pray that your hearts will be flooded with light so that you can understand the confident hope he has given to those he called—his holy people who are his rich and glorious inheritance I also pray that you will understand the incredible greatness of God’s power for us who believe him. This is the same mighty power that raised Christ from the dead and seated him in the place of honor at God’s right hand in the heavenly realms Now he is far above any ruler or authority or power or leader or anything else—not only in this world but also in the world to come. God has put all things under the authority of Christ and has made him head over all things for the benefit of the church. And the church is his body; it is made full and complete by Christ, who fills all things everywhere with himself.) The same power that raised Christ from the dead is available to help us with our daily problems. When you feel weak and limited, don’t  despair.

Remember that God can give you Strength. The power that controls creation and raises the dead is available to you.

Psalms 27:1- The LORD is my light and my salvation—
so why should I be afraid?
The LORD is my fortress, protecting me from danger,
so why should I tremble?  focus Points: Fear is a dark shadow that envelops us and ultimately imprisons us within ourselves. Each of us has been a prisoner of fear at one time or another – fear of rejection, misunderstanding, uncertainty, sickness, or even death. But we can conquer fear by using the bright liberating light of the Lord who brings salvation. If we want to dispel the darkness of fear, let us remember with the psalmist that “the LORD is my light and my salvation.”
